Improving PLC Version Control and Device Backup Using Modern Git Workflows


Git is the standard source control system for software development – and for good reason.  It tracks all changes, displays the differences between code versions, and enables greater collaboration.  These tools are now applied to industrial automation, driving greater productivity, code quality, and machine uptime.  Attend this webinar to understand how these tools work alongside your current PLC programming process, enabling you to streamline how control programs are developed, deployed, operated, and updated.

Learning objectives:

  • Learn the latest strategies for backing up control devices
  • Grasp the basics of Git source control and how it differs from using a simple “archive folder” to manage control programs.
  • Explore the benefits of visually checking code outside the traditional development environments.
  • Understand how Git unifies IT/OT processes and ensures greater data security and disaster recovery.
