Automation News / PLC Driver Software MCM Machine
When proprietary PLC supplier software is involved, builders must typically pay for licenses for every piece of equipment, boosting the cost of their machines. Fortunately, several alternative programs are available that cost significantly less than similar proprietary driver software. The alternative programs helps companies such as Michigan Custom Machines keep production costs as low as possible. The company designs and builds advanced custom test machines for automotive and industrial component manufacturers. Because its machines are turnkey systems, they include everything the customer requires, including HMIs tailored to application specific needs. Of the available options, the company selected INGEAR driver software from CimQuest INGEAR. The drivers enable the Window’s-based HMI to communicate with the PLC.
