CAREL introduces STone programming tool


05 March 2024

CAREL is introducing STone, its new programming tool designed to meet the specific challenges facing software programmers in the HVAC/R market.

The manufacturer says that 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 is said to optimise 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.

“STone is not just development software, but rather a complete tool for responding to the challenges of modern programming,” said Simone Grisenti, CAREL Group Marketing Manager, HVAC Commercial.  “With 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 Milan's Mostra Convegno Expocomfort 2024 event (March 12-15) there will be live demonstrations of STone each day of the event. Further information on the tool and the CAREL offering at MCE is available on CAREL’s event website:
