UNICOS-CPC is a package from UNICOS to engineer industrial PLC based process control systems.
The goal of UNICOS is to standardize the development of control applications at CERN by:
- Emphasize good practices for both, design and operation, of the continuous process control applications
- Reduce the cost of automating continuous processes (e.g. cooling, HVAC...)
- Optimize life-cycle engineering efforts (e.g. using automatic code generation tools)
Part of the UNICOS Framework
