A history based
More than 40 years ago, we invented the first PLC and
paved the way for companies to drive efficiency by
replacing physical logic relays by programmable logic
In 1979 we introduced Modbus to the market, a de facto
communications standard, truly open and the most widely
used industrial protocol in the world.
In 1985 we launched our first SCADA product focused on
Mining and Food & Beverage.
In 1991 we released Citect for Windows. A system that
has been used to implement one of the world’s largest
Windows based control systems.
In 1996 we introduced our first programmable automation
controller (PAC) with embedded web server capabilities
and onboard data logging.
In 2003 we launched Process Analyst, combining Alarm,
Trend and Tag information on a unified display.
We have a history based on innovation and openness,
and today we continue in the same spirit with the
introduction of PlantStruxure TM.
PlantStruxure is a collaborative system that allows
industrial and infrastructure companies meet their
automation needs and at the same time deliver on
growing energy management requirements. In a single
environment, measured energy and process data can be
analysed and used to yield a holistically optimised plant.
