ICS Triplex ISaGRAF Receives Mesures Award for ISaGRAF 5.0

Montreal, Canada - June 27, 2006 - ICS Triplex ISaGRAF announced today that it is the recipient of Mesures Magazine’s technology award for ISaGRAF 5.0. This latest accolade is one of three awards presented to ICS Triplex ISaGRAF for its IEC 61131 / IEC 61499 compliant software, ISaGRAF 5.0.

Awards are presented annually by Mesures Magazine in a variety of categories for innovative products considered to have significant industry impact. A representative from ICS Triplex ISaGRAF accepted the award at a reception held in Paris last week.

“We are honored to receive this award,” states Nicolas Jouvray, ICS Triplex ISaGRAF European Sales Manager. “ISaGRAF 5.0 has been successfully employed by several companies around the world in a variety of applications. It is a next generation software development tool that allows control engineers to solve complex design and development challenges.”

Adhering to the principles of IEC 61499, ISaGRAF 5.0 allows users to build traditional control systems where the interactions between devices will automatically be regulated and synchronized by the IEC 61499 function block diagrams rather than through the use of manually implemented algorithms.
