A new partnership with MITSUBISHI ELECTRIC EUROPE

In summer 2011, we began a new technology based co-operation with Mitsubishi Electric Europe, the market leader for automation solutions.

The collaboration is especially advantageous to customers in the Energy Industry who wish to utilize important industry standards.

 

ACESS TO IEC 61850 AND IEC 61400-25-4

The co-operation with Mitsubishi *Electric Europe is based on porting our IEC 61131-3 soft PLC Straton to the C controller CPU of the modular control system Q from Mitsubishi Electric. This allows users to gain access to a large number of drivers and communication protocols. Above all for use in standards significant to the energy industry - the IEC 61850 and IEC 61400-25-4 have considerable advantages to substation automation and projects in the renwable energy industry. The control system can also function as a fully-fledged IEC 61850/IEC 61400-25-4 server, thanks to straton porting. The Straton-equipped controller is currentely being comprehensively tested by Mitsubishi Electric customers internationally in a series of pilot projects.

FROM PLC TO ERP WITH STRATON AND ZENON

Straton is fully integrated as a module in our SCADA system, enabling efficient configuration. Both systems make use to the same database and thus ensure a fully-integrated solution. This delivers the advantage of un unlimited exchange of data between PLC programming and SCADA system. Thanks to the new alliance Mitsubishi Electric Europe can offer its customers not only the hardware control components, but also individual overall solutions from PLC through to ERP.

MAKE USE OF SYNERGIES IN THE E-F@CTORY ALLIANCE

Due to the co-operation, COPA-DATA was accepted into the Mitsubishi Electric partner program "e-F@ctory Alliance". This is an alliance of different technology partners who are pursuing the objective of obtaining the maximum possible benefit for their customers by leveraging all components available to provide a comprehensive solution.
