ICS Triplex ISaGRAF Releases New Motion Control Solution

Montreal , January 17, 2005 - ICS Triplex ISaGRAF, the leading automation software technology partner, is pleased to announce the release of its new motion control toolkit designed to offer a set of advanced tools for the development of efficient motion control applications within the IEC61131-3 programming environment. 

This new ICS Triplex ISaGRAF offering incorporates normative motion control functionalities based on published PLCopen recommendations for motion control.  In addition, the complete set of motion control function blocks supplied by PLCopen is integrated into the ISaGRAF toolset ready-to-use.  Users will profit not only from standardization of programming languages, but also standardization of the interface towards different motion control solutions.  The resulting benefits include hardware independence and reusability of software applications.  

“While a fair number of our customers are already using ISaGRAF in motion applications, we are now offering a standardized approach to motion control which will certainly reduce costs and improve training for those who are involved in motion control and robotics applications,” states ICS Triplex ISaGRAF Managing Director, Julien Chouinard . “PLCopen’s contribution in issuing a reference document made it easy to implement a cost effective, field-proven motion control solution that allows third-parties to integrate their core expertise into ISaGRAF.”

Following the development of the ICS Triplex ISaGRAF motion control solution, the company was subsequently awarded a certificate for compliance to the PLCopen motion control specification.
