Industrial automation has changed a lot in recent years, but PLC programming still tends to follow traditional programming methodologies which are not up to today’s challenges. They are still based on many costly manual tasks supported by few unpractical tools. Furthermore, the non-compatibility of the different PLC programming languages and platforms has not supported the evolution of these programming methodologies.
As PLC programs become bigger and more complex and the industry becomes more demanding (tighter budgets, tighter deadlines…), the need to ensure quality and to develop as quickly as possible at the lowest possible cost has never been greater. The only way to achieve this is through the use of automated software tools.
Itris Automation set out to tackle the compatibility issues of the different PLC programming languages and platforms with the creation of their technology GLIPS, a platform and language independent technological framework. At the heart of all their software tools, the innovative GLIPS technology enables Itris Automation to support their clients by providing solutions that work with programs written for a number of different PLC platforms and in any of the five IEC 61131-3 languages.
With their four software solutions currently on offer – PLC Checker, PLC Converter, PLC DocGen and ICS Monitoring – Itris Automation aims to help their clients improve their program development and troubleshooting methods and bring them real business benefits. These software solutions are significantly changing the way PLC programs are being managed, reducing costs and bringing huge time savings and quality gains.

We estimate the return on investment of the usage of PLC Checker to roughly 200% just by counting the savings in the test and commissioning phases.
Pascal Pothier, ArianeGroup
We found PLC Checker easy to use with a good user interface. The analyses performed by the tool are very detailed and they provide good feedback.
