Itris Automation have once again been nominated for the fourth annual edition of the Automation Inside Readers’ Choice Awards. This global voting competition covers the major innovations and best products in automation technology.
Itris Automation has been nominated for Best Automation Company and their new, real-time diagnostics solution, ICS Monitoring, has been nominated in the category Best Automation Software.
You can read Itris Automation’s entries below and vote for them here.
“ICS Monitoring is a real-time diagnostics solution to facilitate troubleshooting of PLC-based control systems.
The tool represents PLC programs in a dynamic, navigable data flow format within which the real-time value of each variable is displayed, in addition to cross-references displayed in structured text and ladder format.
This allows the user to start from the output where there is a problem and to work backwards through the system to find any anomalies and to pinpoint the origin of this problem.
To gather the live data, ICS Monitoring can communicate with PLCs either via a communication server with OPC, or directly with Modbus TCP. There are also options to integrate the tool with a version management system, to automatically keep the program information up-to-date, or with a SCADA system, for one-click access to diagnostics.
The objective of ICS Monitoring is to reduce machine downtime by helping operators or maintenance engineers to easily diagnose a problem without needing to be dependent on the automation experts. ICS Monitoring is a web-based solution, so once installed it can be accessed from any device with a recent version of the browser and sufficient permissions.
ICS Monitoring supports all major PLC types from PLC vendors such as Schneider Electric, Siemens, Rockwell Automation, CoDeSys, and Phoenix Contact.”
