The central software tool is the IndraWorks engineering framework for efficient planning, programming, commissioning and diagnosis of different applications via the entire product lifecycle of a machine.

Function toolkits expand the functionality of the standard PLC engineering framework IndraWorks with technology-based solutions. These function packages accelerate the implementation of complex machine processes, optimize the project workflow in the machine manufacturing through additional engineering interfaces or increase productivity through the homogeneous integration of advanced machine functionality.


  • Universal software and engineering toolbox for easy engineering and for creating, deploying and using automation functionality
  • Flexible and open through the use of classical programming languages, e.g. according to IEC 61131, state-of-the-art scripting languages, e.g. NodeRED, or new graphical programming languages
  • Straightforward start-up and engineering through virtual testing without hardware with the ctrlX COREvirtual
  • Direct access to online services such as the ctrlX App Store, ctrlX AUTOMATION Community
  • Fast engineering with guided workflows
  • Comfortable programming environment for all PLC functions
  • Comprehensive software libraries compliant with IEC 61131-3 and PLCopen
