ControlBuild

ControlBuild is an innovative framework for designing and validating automation and control software. It enables to model, simulate, test, validate and implement efficiently control applications according to IEC 61131-3 standard. It is designed for addressing the needs of several companies such as the system integrator, OEM, engineering, prime contractors, consultancy and building ones. The entire suite allows to model, simulate and develop automated industrial plants and integrated electronic systems.

Application Fields:

Automotive, Building Automation, Chemical, Energy, Food & Beverage, Industrial Automation, Pharmaceutical, Marine, Machinery, Railway Transportation, Steel, Water Treatment.

ControlBuild is used for:

  • Rapid Prototyping;
  • Control Software Design;
  • Application Distribution & Deployment;
  • Integration Testing (FAT);
  • Operator Training;
  • Maintenance & Operation;
  • Change Management.

Key Features:

  • Development cost and time reduction;
  • Quality and safety improvement;
  • Handling and minimization of plant start-up risks;
  • Simplification of control software maintenance;
  • Support of safety industrial standards such as SIL2, EN50123 and IEC61508.

ControlBuild packages are:

ControlBuild.Design
Focused on functional requirements design and validation.

ControlBuild.Validation
Focused on automation system simulation and validation prior to start-up.
Its application in the Factory Acceptance Test (FAT) is known as Best Practice in order to reduce start-up and production risks.

ControlBuild.Application Generator
A platform enabling IEC 61131-3 application development and deployment over several different PLC architectures such as Schneider, Siemens, Rockwell, ….

ControlBuild.Embedded
It allows IEC 61131-3 application development and deployment on embedded systems running over Real Time OS such as QNX, RTLinux, VxWorks, ….

ControlBuild-Monitor
Focused on visualizing IEC 61131-3 application parameter values and in the mean time source code of IEC 61131-3 applications running on real time targets.

ControlBuild-Engine
Thanks to the communication module library including among the others I/O, serial link, field bus, TCPIP and OPC, it enables to use the PC as an application controller, supervisor or test bench.
