A complete and integrated automation environment for your studies and for fun.The best way of learning is by doing. With COPA-DATA and LEGO Mindstorms EV3 you now get the possibility of a complete automation environment. Do real-life implementations in a playful environment, for the best learning and testing. Once you get started, there are no limits of what you can accomplish.
To get a full automation environment to be used within for example studies, can be both costly and difficult to maintain. The zenon Science Package for LEGO Mindstorms EV3, includes both a soft PLC with straton, and a complete HMI/SCADA tool with zenon. Instead of purchasing a separate PLC, sensors and actors to use with your LEGO Mindstorms EV3, get a complete automation lab for a low cost, packaged and ready to use. Be prepared for future challenges in a fun environment.
straton, the included soft PLC, supports all five IEC 61131-3 programming languages.
The straton workbench will always support programming in any preferred language, even if other parts of the program were written in a different language. straton makes this easy because of its program converter can translate from one IEC 61131-3 language to another at any time.
Once your LEGO Mindstorms EV3 is programmed, you are ready to get started. Now you can also start collecting data from your LEGO Mindstorms EV3. straton has a perfect communication with zenon, the HMI/SCADA software from COPA-DATA, which will enable visual feedback and a variety of analysis possibilities.
With straton and zenon you can test the logic you have created before putting it into your LEGO Mindstorms EV3. In offline simulation and online debugging you can test the programs you created, force variables, set break points and much more.
It is very easy to get started with the zenon Science Package for LEGO Mindstorms EV3. All you need, except for the LEGO Mindstorms itself, can be downloaded and easily installed. With just some few installation steps you will get started with some interesting learning and fun playing/working.
