The zenon software platform supports innovative companies worldwide in simple, secure, and independent industrial automation. As an industrial automation software, it contributes to the digital transformation and convergence of OT and IT.

As an integrated solution with open interfaces, the software platform connects machines, plants, and buildings. While connecting from the sensor to all higher-level systems, zenon also includes native drivers and communication protocols. This creates ergonomics for the acting people and enables the scalable implementation of the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) in heterogeneous production landscapes.

Originally developed as HMI/SCADA software, the entire zenon software platform covers significantly more application areas.

Utilizing hardware-independent data acquisition and cross-site management of process data, the industrial automation software, zenon, can be used to increase efficiency - even in complex production landscapes.
zenon reduces complexity for users and enables well-founded decisions thanks to ergonomic visualization and control. Due to the integrated analytics and reporting services, zenon can evaluate and analyze collected data and automatically distribute reports across devices.


The zenon software platform also supports application engineering and maintenance throughout their entire life cycle. If required, projects can be created independently of the location, redundantly, across teams, without programming knowledge, or automated.

The industrial software straton is also available as a flexible, IEC-61131-3 based soft PLC and data processing environment for embedded platforms.

About us

We envision a world where people are able to manage complexity with ease. That's why we develop automation software that is so practical it simplifies work in industrial and infrastructural environments – whether it is on a machine in a production hall, in the control room of a substation, or on a PC in an executive office.


We have gained experience in conventional industrial automation with HMI and SCADA. Today, we are combining our automation expertise with the new possibilities offered by digital transformation. In this way, we can empower our customers to implement their strategies in an easier, faster, and more purposeful way.


We have subsidiaries and distributors all over the world and can provide customers with local sales and support services for the zenon software platform. We also have numerous partners in the COPA-DATA Partner Community who provide ergonomic applications with zenon.


COPA-DATA was founded by Thomas Punzenberger in 1987 because he had a vision of a kind of software that had never been seen before. So we turned that vision into reality with zenon — the industrial software that will make your life easier.
