Mitsubishi Electric, COPA-DATA partner on e-Factory Alliance Partner Program

CTBR Staff Writer Published 24 February 2012

Mitsubishi Electric's Factory Automation European Business Group and COPA-DATA have partnered in the framework of the e-Factory Alliance Partner Program.

The cooperation aims to integrate COPA-DATA`s control and visualization software products into Mitsubishi Electric's embedded C Controller.

In order to easily collect data and status reports from remote field devices, Mitsubishi Electric`s MELSEC Q-Series operates with COPA-DATA`s telemetry protocols.

Through the porting of straton, the IEC 61131-3 Soft-PLC of COPA-DATA`s subsidiary COPALP, to the C Controller CPU of Mitsubishi Electric`s iQ Platform, users gain access to a wide range of drivers and communication protocols.

Mitsubishi Electric Europe has teamed up with COPA-DATA in a new partnership to offer the customers additional value through the integration of their respective technologies.

The integration of Mitsubishi Electric`s automation hardware and COPA-DATA`s monitoring, control and visualization software products gives users access to important telemetry protocols and thereby achieving remote data collection and processing.

straton is fully integrated as a module in COPA-DATA`s control and visualization software zenon, thus enabling efficient configuration.

straton and zenon access the same database, providing a completely integrated solution with the advantage of unrestricted data exchange between PLC programming using straton and the SCADA system zenon.

zenon can communicate directly with Mitsubishi`s iQ Platform because of the open structure and the object-orientation for HMI and SCADA.
