infoteam Introduces New Generation of Software for IEC 61131-3

December 202004
OAC Open Automation & Control will soon operate as a competence centre for OpenPCS in England. OAC is therefore the third distributor after BAH in China and ANCO in Taiwan to use infoteam software as a basis for future products. In return, infoteam will integrate OAC's CheckPLC technology into OpenPCS and will thus offer automatic checking tools for certification in accordance with IEC 61508 and other safety standards.

Bubenreuth - Worthing, 9. December 2004-The globally established IEC 61131-3 programming software OpenPCS 2004 Automation Suite from infoteam Software GmbH will now also lead to the discontinuation of ISaGRAF sales in England. Open Auto-mation & Control, a British group that specializes in corporate consulting in the area of Safety IEC 61508, will handle distribution. Prof. Dr. George Turnbull, the Managing Director of OAC, was highly impressed with the at-tractive licensing model, the open framework as well as the value-enhanced quality in application development. The cooperation with OAC will not only allow infoteam to further extend its leading role in the automation industry but will also bring the company closer to its customers. Dr. Brendel, Manag-ing Director of infoteam: “Direct customer contact is a vital quality criterion for the implementation of the corporate philosophy of infoteam. By extend-ing our network of distributors, we gain a deeper insight into the require-ments of our customers. Innovations and future developments can now be implemented even more quickly and the customers can benefit from en-hanced quality in their applications. CheckPLC technology, which we shall be licensing from OAC, also makes a valuable contribution here.”

But the success story extends beyond Great Britain. infoteam recently con-cluded a 10-year contract with the ANCO Group in Taiwan. This company specializes in the development of PLC and DCS products for process and industrial automation and, now that it has opted for OpenPCS, is one of info-team's biggest customers. “Plans are already being carved for a further ex-tension of our marketing activities to Ireland and the USA in 2005”, Dr. Brendel continues.

With its innovations and customer-oriented software development infoteam Software has furnished sound proof that the international standard IEC 61131-3 also serves as a basis for the future improvement of the software development process.
