Applications in the Industry
In automation solutions for industrial applications, in the field of renewable energy or in the agricultural sector, standard industrial controllers (PLCs) are often used for applications with small quantities. This has the advantage of lower development costs and high flexibility.
If the quantities increase, however, these solutions are very cost-intensive and offer too many unused features. A customer-specific control solution provides a remedy for this and can be developed in a cost-optimised manner for the specific problem.
The entire control technology can be certified and approved (e.g. TÜV or UL) for the different customer markets depending on the market or safety requirements. Our team has the necessary expertise for this.
We would be happy to answer your questions about control technology.
Interfaces and peripherals
From simple IO’s (Input/Output) to complex bus systems – all types of interfaces can be implemented. For example, sensors are integrated or motors are controlled. Furthermore, power electronics or additional electronics such as a vision system (camera) can be integrated.
The visualisation forms the interface to people. This ranges from simple buttons or membrane keyboards with LED displays to high-resolution touch displays, which meet the requirements of the industrial environment.
CPU / Firmware and Algorithm
The core of every control system is the CPU. The control or regulation algorithm is mapped in the form of firmware. A multiprocessor system can also be used for safety-critical applications. All algorithms are coordinated with the customer for the application and tested in detail.
