Industrial-Control-as-a-Service for Automation Engineers
We provide Industrial-Control-as-a-Service for automation engineers by turning Programmable Logic Controllers (PLCs) into software functions – freeing industrial automation from the constraints of vendor specific hardware.
This delivers new degrees of freedom and improved resilience for manufacturers. Our solutions enable cloud-based PLC file storage and backups, fine-grained user access, PLC and gateway fleet management to increase the productivity of automation engineering teams.
Software Defined Automation enables DevOps for PLCs through Git-based code versioning and collaboration. SDA TechOps provides cloud-based management of conventional and virtual PLCs, and automated code deployments. SDA vPLC delivers independence from proprietary controllers on x86 servers at the edge.
Cloud-based management of virtual and conventional PLCs with full project traceability and automated code deployments. Manage all your PLCs in one web application independently of the PLC vendor type. Control access to PLC code and IDEs for your co-workers.
