Den Energieverbrauch im Griff haben

Significant savings through improved energy efficiency

Renewable energy has completely upended the landscape of traditional energy technology. Standalone solutions have long run out of steam trying to keep up with controlling processes whose complexity does nothing but increase. A complete solution is needed – a reliable approach that makes it possible to manage complicated systems from a central location.

We put our trust in B&R


"Reliability, availability, compatibility, fast response times, deterministic behavior and an open architecture are all key factors when controlling energy production systems. POWERLINK communication technology meets these requirements for decentralized control systems and machine control systems, and openSAFETY guarantees full data integrity when exchanging data throughout multiple networks. openSAFETY is the only completely open and independent safety standard, and therefore ensures safe data exchange and complete compatibility in a multi-vendor environment. openSAFETY is the ideal solution for crucial automation processes, today and in the future!"
