PLC training that is ‘easy and fun’

31 March 2008

Designed for PLC training and education, Interactive Training System (ITS) for PLC gives users five real world based industrial systems so they can program and validate their control algorithms through a real-time interactive experience.

Based on Windows Vista PC technology, the virtual environments created by the software feature 3D real-time graphics, physics, sound and total interactivity. The result is an ‘immersive simulated environment’ that allows ‘highly realistic training scenarios, without any risk of injury to man or damage to machine.’

Each system is a visual simulation of an industrial system including virtual sensors and actuators, so their state can be sensed by the PLC.

The information is exchanged between the PLC and the virtual system by a data acquisition board with 32 I/O isolated channels and USB interface. ITS PLC works with any PLC from any manufacturer.

The company’s website has some demonstration videos and offers visitors the possibility to download a demo version. Founded in 2006 in Portugal, the company develops 3D software solutions that combine software development and commercial-off-the-shelf tools.
