Efficient Engineering

zenon is the core system of SICAM® 230 so, when switching from SICAM® 230 to zenon, existing SICAM® 230 projects can mostly be used and maintained. SICAM® 230 uses the zenon engineering environment, meaning that engineers who are familiar with the engineering environment from SICAM® 230 can continue to make use of all their expertise when maintaining existing zenon projects or creating new ones.


Minimized Risk when Switching to zenon

When switching from SICAM® 230 to zenon, there are practically no technical risks as zenon is the core system of SICAM® 230. As the same technology is still used, there are also no economic risks and it is not necessary to obtain new certification for the equipment.
