Configuration tool for documents industrial control system components
Schneider Electric’s Prometheus is a configuration tool for defining, programming and documenting all components in an industrial control system (ICS), from the manufacturing execution system (MES) to the input/output (I/O). Prometheus features an open programming environment that automates complex configuration tasks and enables the configuration of control components, regardless of type or brand. Prometheus is designed to remove the complexity and burden of updating multiple applications to drive greater agility across automation control systems. Prometheus can configure each of these components regardless of type or brand.
It also features code development independent of the target platform, optional functionality, and intelligent plug and socket connections deliver agile templates, ensuring the maximum reuse of code. Integrated version management means standards can evolve as requirements change. A multi-user framework provides all engineering disciplines with visibility into the project, ensuring early identification of issues and timely decision-making. With vendor neutrality, original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) have access to a broader customer base and embedded control. Prometheus code can even be compiled to GCC for execution on Linux, OS9, OSX or Microsoft Windows.
