In September 2003 in Moscow, AdAstra (Russia) signed an OEM-agreement with the Chinees company Shuoren, the manufacturer of the PLC STEC 2000. This controller is widely used in China for the heating stations automation.
STEC 2000 is operated under the control of the LINUX operating system and is not a PC-based device.
This OEM-project is an embodiment of the new AdAstra’s strategy aimed at expanding the number of hardware platforms being supported in TRACE MODE.
According to the terms and conditions of this agreement, each STEC 2000 PLC will be provided with a TRACE MODE development system and a driver for fast project designing.
In the nearest future, it is planned to enter into several more agreements with foreign and Russian manufacturers of conventional PLCs.
