  • Increased plant security as a result of reduced error-sources
  • Prevention of multi-processing
  • Reverse documentation, plant documentation of existing PCS/SPS systems
  • Paperless recording and commenting of changes
  • Documentation of the plant life cycle
  • Transparent, actual and complete change documentation


  • PLSDOC is the interface between plant documentation and the process control technology
  • Changes in the PCS/SPS world are logged in real time including document update
  • Plant documentation is availabe in the IT world and in SCADA systems (a direct integration into the operating and monitoring stations is possible)
  • Update "on demand" of the sequence controls or step chain documentation (SFC)


  • OPC connection to the PCS/SPS world: Siemens PCS 7 / S7 WinCC, Emerson Delta V, Freelance, ABB 800xA etc.
  • Special solutions for older systems such as Contronic P, Teleperm M, Advant Master etc.
  • Monitoring of redundant server pairs as part of the reverse documentation and switching to a redundant server whenever an active server fails
  • No data loss when connection between OS server and PLSDOC® RE is interrupted because of the buffering of the change information
  • Update of the plant documentation (HTML documents)
  • Central, company-wide database solution
