Control plus is a particularly user-friendly development environment for modular engineering. Our controller-independent software system Control plus offers an engineering environment based on modular design, provides user-friendly, standardized user interfaces and networks your machines easily and efficiently. You can expand the basic system at any time depending on your needs and requirements: Various technology packages for the areas of robotics, dispensing and image processing are available. Our 3D simulation environment also enables virtual start-up, which significantly reduces machine cycle times. Machine apps and analysis options are also available for your projects.

What are the benefits?

Predefined software blocks

Predefined software blocks

With the central development tool Control plus Studio, you can build the structure for your machine project step by step - regardless of the control system manufacturer. You can integrate and parameterize your device objects using drag and drop, configure a process-specific machine visualization, define information services and diagnostic functions and generate your code. The central and unique data input for control, visualization and data management can reduce development times by up to 50 percent. In addition to the Control plus Studio development tool, the basic system offers a large number of encapsulated, tested and reusable objects. Well over 400 machine components are already modeled in the object library. These objects are managed in the library, regularly expanded via updates and kept up to date.

Hardware freedom

Hardware freedom

Efficient control software is necessary for the best possible machine utilization with minimal downtimes. This must take into account all the individual parameters of your production system and ensure that machines and systems run economically, stably and safely. The control software in the Control plus runtime environment executes the machine sequence and the processes in the machine. It adapts flexibly to hardware in a wide range of performance classes. From individual machines with manual operation to automated production lines, the standardized Control plus programming framework of the control software ensures that all Control plus machines behave in the same way. This makes machine operation much easier, as the operating personnel do not have to adapt to different software for each machine.

In the Control plus development environment, the machine visualization can be displayed fully integrated - for consistent and fast work during project creation. A standardized framework of objects is available for configuring the visualization, which can be easily placed using drag & drop. These include user administration, operating mode switching, language settings and error display. Thanks to user administration, the user interface can be adapted very easily to different role and user concepts. Control plus also enables the configuration of multiple user interfaces per machine. The HMI apps (Information Services) as optional components in the Control plus system close the gap between live data and historical values.

More details about Control plus

Our control-independent software system Control plus is an impressive engineering environment based on a modular principle. Control plus not only reduces development costs, but also makes the machines themselves more efficient and ensures transparency: machines based on Control plus can be easily integrated into existing IT infrastructures. The Control plus Machine Hub also enables manufacturer- and platform-independent data exchange with other IT systems. The Control plus Code Checker always keeps an eye on the quality of the software.

Intelligent function extensions for maximum efficiency

Intelligent function extensions for maximum efficiency

The great variety of automation technology leads to complex and heterogeneous control topologies: For example, subordinate subsystems are often used in image processing, robotics or measurement technology. However, these only rarely offer the possibility of taking over information or engineering data from the control technology.

In addition, the systems require a great deal of expertise: Both in engineering as well as in machine operation, specialized staff are needed on a permanent basis. Control plus offers a more efficient solution with intelligent function extensions. These can be easily licensed via software on the automation system and are directly connected to the runtime system, the visualization and the engineering data.

Over 100 machine manufacturers already work with Control plus
