CAREL@MCE 2024: STone, the new HVAC/R programming landmark

 In the world of programming for HVAC/R systems, the constant evolution of technologies requires advanced and innovative solutions. In response to this need, CAREL is thrilled to present STone, the new programming tool designed to meet the specific challenges of software programmers in the HVAC/R market.

STone represents the new programming landmark: it is the ideal solution foraccelerating the software development process, with features that make programming faster and facilitate collaboration between different developers, while at the same time guaranteeing the quality and efficiency of the end result. STone is an essential tool for programmers who want to develop software solutions quickly and effectively: the new testing, debugging and simulation features revolutionise the way software is developed and tested. Fast, continuous validation means teams can reduce the time it takes to complete complex projects, eliminating the frustration that comes with constant software revalidation.

STone is compatible with a wide range of CAREL programmable controllers. This optimises software investments by ensuring flexibility over the long term. By anticipating future programming needs, it offers a future-ready foundation to support advanced technologies such as artificial intelligence and advanced simulation systems.

The tool is not limited to simply managing the development, testing and validation of application software, but rather is designed to support the system throughout the entire unit life cycle, simplifying commissioning and maintenance, both local and remote; it also features specific focus on IT security, protecting CAREL programmable controllers against unauthorised access and unwanted tampering, thus safeguarding industrial processes and ensuring the security of everyday operations.

β€œSTone is not just development software, but rather a complete tool for responding to the challenges of modern programming”, commented Simone Grisenti, CAREL Group Marketing Manager, HVAC Commercial. β€œWith STone, programmers can focus on higher value-added tasks and embrace new technological trends, improving teamwork and developing high-quality software solutions efficiently”.

At the CAREL stand at MCE 2024 there will be live demonstrations of STone every day, for the entire duration of the event. Attendance is available on booking. All the information on the tool and on the CAREL offering at MCE is available on CAREL’s event website: mce.carel.com.
