The firm has launched what it claims are the world's first industrial controllers with Windows CE. The controllers include the WinPLC and RUNtimePC. WinPLC is a PLC control platform that runs the Windows CE operating system as a run-time platform that integrates the features of PLCs and PCs, including direct backplane access to I/O, non-volatile program and data memories, and built-in Ethernet and serial ports. The RUNtimePC is a Windows CE-based diskless industrial PC with solid-state flash memory and four built-in Ethernet ports to communicate with PLCDirect I/O and other Windows platforms. The systems reportedly can lower the cost of PC-based PLC solutions, which are said to be complex and costly in the past.
