ITS PLC Professional Edition
New concept. New kind of learning.

ITS PLC Professional Edition is the essential tool for individuals performing professional PLC training and education.It will improve your PLC training experience with high quality simulations of industrial plants that you can control in real-time. Each system is a lifelike simulation of a typical industrial plant that will bring the industry into your classroom. You can easily move it around, does not require maintenance and it does not present risks of injury to staff or damage to equipments. And it is a lightweight application that you won t even realize that it is running, leaving your computer resources free.

How does it work?

The goal is to make each industrial plant work correctly by using an external PLC. Students will be able to see a PLC in its typical industrial environment and fully understand and program common control tasks. This is impossible to get if a PLC is simply wired to a few lamps and switches as commonly found in school labs due to cost, space and safety constraints.

Each system is a complete emulation of a real industrial plant including virtual sensors and actuators. The sensors and actuators data is exchanged between the PLC and the system by a data acquisition board (DAQ) with 32 I/O isolated channels and USB interface.

Available systems

ITS PLC Professional Edition offers five systems inspired by common industrial plants: Sorting, Batching, Palletizer, Pick & Place and Automatic Warehouse. Each system is a typical industrial application of programmable logic controllers (PLC) that will give you the oportunity to practice real world control tasks.


ITS PLC Professional Edition is now being used worldwide, mostly in schools and universities. Yet, a surprising number of industrial enterprises is adopting the product for internal training.

ITS PLC Professional Edition is also proving to be a valuable training tool on a large variety of automation technologies. Using the PLC as an RTU (Remote Terminal Unit) it is currently being used in applications such as training of HMI devices (Human Machine Interface), SCADA (Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition), MES (Manufacturing Executing Systems) and ERP systems (Enterprise Resource Systems).

Some researchers are finding other interesting usages of ITS PLC Professional Edition; for instance, its application in supervisory and fault tolerant control. These are important research areas that benefit a lot from the low cost and risk-free usage of simulated industrial systems.
