mapp Technology is revolutionizing the creation of software for industrial machinery and equipment. mapp components – mapps for short – are as easy to use as a smartphone app. Rather than write lines and lines of code to build a user management system, alarm system or motion control sequence from the ground up, developers of machine software simply configure the ready-made mapps with a few clicks of the mouse. Complex algorithms are easy to manage. Programmers can focus entirely on the machine process.
Accelerate your development cycles with modular, intelligent software. mapp components communicate with each other automatically and save you time and money.
Benefit from a constantly growing range of functions. New and existing mapps are completely interoperable. Leave the software maintenance up to B&R.
Focus on optimizing your machine processes and give innovation the attention it deserves. With mapp Technology, we free up the resources you need to make it happen.
mapp Technology makes complex technology like robotics and advanced control simple and intuitive.
Complex control algorithms in the form of easy-to-use software blocks. Crane control, hydraulics control, filter design, closed-loop design and much, much more. Advanced technology made accessible for the average user.

Maximum productivity through integrated safety technology. mapp Safety covers the entire spectrum, including safe axes and robots. Safe machine options can be enabled or disabled in the field.
Implement any combination of mapp Technology and your own process software. How much B&R know-how you choose to integrate in the form of mapp components is entirely up to you.
mapp Technology comes in the form of plug-ins for Automation Studio – B&R's integrated environment for engineering, diagnostics and maintenance. All IEC 61131 programming languages as well as C and C++ are supported.
mapp components are created following the principles of agile software development – with a focus on quality. Automated tests can be run ahead of time during the development process using test-driven development. Tests are performed at five different levels and new tests are added all the time. Additionally, each new or modified function is developed according to the two-man rule. All of these practices contribute to guaranteed high software quality.
