versiondog offers several benefitsto its users:

  • Reduction of unplanned shutdowns avoiding unauthorized changes to applications;
  • Quick and secure access to all software and project versions, allowing fast recovery in case of emergencies;
  • Complete electronic record of changes made in projects and automation applications;
  • Access control to the stored versions;
  • Employees knowledge share, allowing easy integration of new members to the work teams;
  • Ability to manage large volumes of data;
  • Modern, friendly and constantly updated platform, providing innovative features and support for new technologies;
  • Compatibility with various topologies of communication and network protocols.

versiondog place an end to the following issues:

  • Loss of software versions;
  • Lack of traceability related to changes made;
  • Failure to identify interventions done by unauthorized persons;
  • Damage to production due to the use of incorrect versions of software.

versiondog provides a centralized storage with versioning and documentation. It is able to manage the entire data volume from projects and automation software, into a unified and seamless environment.

Its centralized structure allows the allocation of software versions and projects in a safe environment, with access control and periodic backups.

versiondog supports the implementation of automatic uploads from PLC applications, robots, HMIs and SCADA systems at predefined time intervals, without require manual intervention.

Automated backups are available for main technologies:

  • Siemens automation systems – SIMATIC S5, SIMATIC S7, SIMATIC PCS7, WinCC, SINUMERIK 840D;
  • Rockwell automation Systems – ControlLogix, CompactLogix, SLC500, MicroLogix and PLC5;
  • Schneider automation Systems – Modsoft, Concept and Unity;
  • Phoenix Contact automation Systems – PCWorx;
  • SCADA systems – InTouch, iFix, Citect;
  • Robots – Motoman, ABB and Kuka;
  • Documentation – Microsoft Word, Microsoft Excel, Adobe PDF etc.
  • SoftPLCs – CoDeSys, TwinCAT among others.

Automated backup function provides all the necessary support for fast and reliable systems recovery in emergencies.

versiondog offers a complete version history of projects and automation software, automatically documenting the changes made, who made, what has changed and at what time, in compliance to ISO 900x terms, GMP, GAMP, VDA6.4 and FDA 21 CFR 11.

The Smart Compare component provides a detailed graphical comparison of all the changes made between versions and/or uploads for main technologies, without the need of its specific programming tools.

Smart Compare is available for the following technologies:

  • Siemens automation systems – SIMATIC S5, SIMATIC S7, SIMATIC PCS 7, WinCC, WinCC Flexible, SINUMERIK 840D;
  • Rockwell automation systems – ControlLogix, CompactLogix, SLC500, MicroLogix and PLC5;
