Realtime, easy-access diagnostics for PLCs

ICS Monitoring (photo) is a realtime diagnostics solution for programmable logic controllers (PLCs). The ICS platform supports the troubleshooting of PLC-based control systems by helping to find the origin of a problem more quickly and reduce downtime. ICS Monitoring simplifies the representation of a program’s data flow and logic while displaying the realtime values of the variables. This representation, featuring live values and dynamic navigation, makes troubleshooting a PLC program easier, with no need to access the development environments or to utilize a PLC code expert. Compared to other diagnostics solutions, ICS Monitoring is unique in its capacity to support a number of different PLC makes and models, says the manufacturer. The solution can connect directly to process data via Modbus TCP or OPC communication protocols, allowing data to be shared in realtime. It can also work with version-management tools to keep program information up to date. — Itris Automation, Grenoble, France
