ARSA Controls uses different programming languages and software packages. Automation of office automation and machines is comming closer together and hereby also the virtualisation of PC’s both local and in the cloud. ARSA Controls uses a wide range of programming software packages to control and maintain our software. ARSA Controls splitted these in different categories.
Arsa Controls is specialized in developping software for different brands of control types.
You can think about PLC brands like:
Software will be developped object oriented on the IEC61131-3 standard. In this standard the following programming languages are included.

ARSA Controls can give advice for a network of your needs. Maybe you want a connection between a office enviroment and a machine enviroment but do not connect them directly to eachother but it should be connected in a specific way. ARSA Controls delivers a good network design which is also very secure. This can be done wired as wireless.
In this way it is very easy to connect a tablet or Phone to your machine when you are at a different part of your terrain and check the machine progress. For these purposes ARSA Controls delivers a good WIFI network and you can have control over your running machine all the time.
Desktop Apps can help you by Control, Data Links and Logging
One of the desktop apps ARSA Controls developed is a HMI application to control your machine. This is a Touch screen application with which you can start, change parameters and so on.
Desktop applications are far more powerfull then PLC applications. It makes it easy to read files, do complex mathemetical calculations or connect to the office automation. Some examples:
CAD application: Maybe you have a CAD application which can produce coordinates for your machine. This data can be used by your machine to do all of it’s assignments.
Stock Control: A other solution could be stock control for your company. If your machine uses material for producing products the machine can count the products and reduce the stocks. If the desktop application uses this information it can, for example, sent an email to the purcahase department and new stocks can be bought.
The Logging of data isn´t done for most simple machines because it is very expensive. ARSA Controls develloped a application for the logging of your machine. In this way you do not need the expensive licences. With a logging system you can also save al lot of money. For more information check the Cloud logging platform of ARSA Controls.
ARSA Controls also develops apps to analyse all logged data. In long-term this can save a lot off money. An Example: In your company you have a big number off the same motors. The running hpurs of these motors can be logged in the ARSA Controls logging application. After a number of hours one of the oldest motors breaks up. Also the second oldest motor breaks up after the same amount of running hours. With the logged data you can review all other motors in a early stadium. Also the machine which uses these motors does only have to have a planned stop to exchange the motor. You can save the costs of a new motor.
ARSA Controls develops moble apps for Android and IOS to monitor and analyse your logged data. These mobile apps can be connected to the, by ARSA Controls developped cloud logging platform. You can watch and analyse your machine or process everywhere in the world, 24 hours a day. Yu can get alarm messages by, for example email or a messaging service on your Phone or tablet. You will Always know if there are any problems with your machine. The only thing you need is a internet connection on your mobile device.
ARSA Controls als develops customer specific apps. So ARSA Controls can satisfy your demends.

Virtualisation of a PC can sometimes be very important. Virtualisation stand for running a software pc. A software pc is a pc that isn’t using physical hardware but runs on a software platform luk VMWare, Microsoft Hyper-V or Citrix Xen. This means pc’s can be copied. It has a big advantage. Virtual pc’s can run on each physical pc.
In this way your machine does not have to stop for a long time. Data logging doesn’t have to stop and the system is up and running very fast again.
In vase of hing priority there are possibilities to run virtual pc’s on redundant hardware. The different physical machines can be combined to run these virtual machines. If one of the physical pc’s crashes the virtual pc can keep running or automatically transfer to the other physcal machine.
You can also virtualise pc’s in the cloud or store the data in the cloud. There are many platforms to store or run your important data or proceses in the cloud. Different suppliers can ensure that your data or process will be Always available. You don’t have to worry about back ups and so on.
ARSA Controls also developed a Machine Cloud logging platform. In this way you can store machine data n the cloud. Read more about the ARSA Controls cloud logging platform here.
Ook kunt u tegenwoordig virtualiseren naar de cloud of uw data opslaan in de cloud. Hiervoor zijn verschillende platformen beschikbaar waardoor u allerlei belangrijke data in de cloud kan gaan opslaan dan wel belangrijke software processen in de cloud te laten draaien. Er zijn verschillende partijen die er voor zorgen dat uw data en of applicatie ten alle tijde in de lucht blijft. U hoeft zich dan niet druk te maken over back ups en dergelijke.
