Migration solutions for quick and easy system updates. Migrate existing PLC and DCS systems fast and reliably without rewiring the field level.

When industrial plants age, are no longer state of the art, or when support or spare parts availability is limited, a system update is required at the control level of a process plant. When replacing PLC or DCS systems, it is crucial to avoid wiring errors and keep downtime during the migration process as low as possible.

Manufacturer-independent solutions for each PLC/DCS By using manufacturer-specific adapter cards and pre-assembled system cables, the new control system can be put into operation quickly and easily. The field wiring remains unaffected by this, and any time-consuming and error-prone rewiring is avoided.

Sign up and learn more about our clever migration solutions.

Duration: Approximately 45 minutes
Presented By: Robert Johannesson

Do you want to speed up your digital process in production? Our configuarator helps you to communicate with your CAE system (e.g Eplan) to secure data, make complete documentation and create files for producing markers and much more. In fact you are also able to order a complete terminalrail or equiped enclosure with only a mouse click.

In this webinar we take a look at the communication between our configuarator and Eplan. We will show examples how it works and what advanteges you get using it. We will also show how you very easy could create your own terminalrow or fully equiped enclosure and get it delivered to you without spending time in your own production.
