PC Based Software Services

When Proprietary Software Isn’t Enough

Here at Adbro, we understand that sometimes vendor-specific software can fall somewhat short of the requirements needed for complex control systems and processes.
That is why, in addition to proprietary software expertise, we consider it our duty to also be able to offer PC based software solutions that are not reliant on any one particular vendor, but which can also operate across multiple vendors.

We also have the ability to provide complex stand-alone solutions to provide truly flexible and adaptable systems.

Using the latest PC technology, we can provide a PC based solution to compliment a PLC/SCADA/HMI solution or to operate as standalone systems in a variety of operating formats including embedded systems.

Complimentary Systems

 You can expect the following when implementing a complimentary system;

Relational database systems – For long term storage of data

Bespoke OPC servers – For filed devices that do not have a supplied driver

Bespoke operator interface devices – These can be a more practical solutions for the OEMs

Using standardised interfaces instead of traditional SCADA/HMI systems – Doing so allows the cost to be reduced & in some cases eliminated.

Stand-Alone Systems

A data capture system will collect data from a variety of vendors and instrumentations. This can be implemented across networks such as industrial ethernet, profibus or on-board I/O soft PLC systems, utilising PC technology. Commonly used as a platform for either Virtual PLC’s or a dedicated module that resides in a PC Slot, emulating traditional PLC CPU Systems.

A motion control system can reside as a module on the PC, thus provinf the closed loop control and operator interface features to compliment the drive controllers and feedback systems present.
