Under a joint venture with SoftPLC Corporation, IMO will develop and market SoftPLC products throughout the European Union. The announcement comes at a time when many are arguing that the future of industrial control lies with open architecture, PC-based systems.
Running on an Intel-based industrial PC platform, the IMO SoftPLC software combines PID, discrete and analogue I/O control with the data handling, computational and networking capabilities of computers.
Rather than trying to use Windows which really isn’t suited to industrial automation tasks, the SoftPLC kernel takes over the running of the PC to provide reliable, deterministic control.
