    Hello, please would you mind posting VIPA Automation ( to your Controls website? VIPA is a control systems provider based on Step7 from Siemens. The North American Headquarter is based in Atlanta. Thank you, Thomas

      Cool product, I’d like to learn more about it. If you do a bit of a writeup for me I’d like to write a post on it. Looks like some of the processors are faster, etc. but for instance, can your software be used with Step 7 processors and is it less expensive than Siemens? Their software is pretty pricey…

        I’m pretty sure the entry level Siemens software (S7-200, S7-1200 series) software is pretty affordable – and not hobbled by annoying copy protection.

        Siemens has some attractive starter packages with PLC, software, and (optional) HMI for the S7-1200 starting at $250.
