STAX Automation Technology
STAX Automation Technology is an embedded software framework that bridges the gap between traditional PLC automation and PC-based programming. STAX enables control and high-speed data acquisition and processing to be combined into one hardware platform, all while maintaining the configurability of a typical PLC by plant personnel.
By consolidating functionality and taking advantage of advances in computing power, STAX provides cutting-edge capability in a cost-effective platform. STAX allows companies to:
- Consolidate data acquisition and storage
- Reduce cumbersome communication and handshaking
- Reduce control panel size and wiring complexity
- Expand the pool of available maintenance personnel
STAX builds on the power of LabVIEW programming to create a new kind of controller that can do things a PLC can’t, but also be maintained and understood by PLC programmers. Whether it is traditional automation, process control, manufacturing test, or IIoT, STAX brings the cutting edge within reach.
