STRATON® is a flexible IEC-61131-3-based soft PLC and data processing environment for embedded platforms, developed and maintained by STRATON® AUTOMATION. straton is composed of a development tool kit, an integrated development environment, and a runtime. The development tool kit offers custom integration of the straton Runtime onto any hardware platform, regardless of the hardware configuration and operating system. Applications are realized in an IEC 61131-3 compliant environment. In addition, tools are available for fieldbus configuration, automated project engineering and online diagnosis. straton Runtime carries out deterministic processing of the IEC 61131-3 application. straton also includes a range of communication stacks such as Modbus, Profinet, BACnet, CANopen, Powerlink, IEC 61850 and IEC 60870. Mainly dedicated to OEMs, hardware and software manufacturers, straton is available both as a full package and as individual software components.

STRATON® includes a multitude of tools to facilitate the development of your projects such as

  • The Library Manager
  • The Validation Tool to launch automatic test procedures for your Runtime
  • IEC 61850 Client
  • IEC 61850 SCL Editor
  • Graphical display (Soft-scope and online debugging)
  • IDE Monitoring (online diagnostics for easy debugging)
  • Project comparison (Diff Tool)
  • A graphical interface (Graphical Viewer)
  • Import, export, modification and conversion of projects
  • IEC 61850 GOOSE monitoring tool

STRATON® is highly configurable. Several tools have been developed to perfectly fit your needs:

  • The Driver Development Kit (DDK) allows to develop your own I/O driver, giving the possibility to retrieve data from your I/O boards easily in straton
  • The Brand Labeling tool allows to configure the Editor according to your needs
  • The Safety Tool Kit allows to configure and integrate more easily a straton Runtime on your target, specifically developed to be SIL 2 certifiable according to the IEC61508 standard
  • The Function Block Development Kit (FBDK) allows you to develop your own function blocks programmed in C
  • The Tool Kit (VMTK) allows to compile a Runtime adapted to your equipment
