Software Development Perfectly Tailored to Customer Requirements

Eckelmann’s development expertise covers the entire automation pyramid — from the field level to the ERP system.

Eckelmann develops solutions for almost all areas of industrial automation. The expertise of our engineers ranges from microcontrollers and common control technology to PC-based systems. They use the appropriate development platforms and programming languages. They are also proficient in common database and web technologies. The user interfaces are based on web technologies and can therefore be displayed flexibly on a wide variety of devices.

These capabilities enable Eckelmann to network production machines with each other, connect them using suitable transport technology and integrate them into the customer’s infrastructure via a control system.

For applications in the chemical, pharmaceutical and biotechnology industries, the Eckelmann team has special development expertise in accordance with GMP/GAMP. In medical technology, we develop in accordance with the international IEC 62304 standard.

Customized control systems

Eckelmann uses customized PC-based control systems from our own company, but also uses industry-standard SCADA and process control systems. In doing so, our developers accurately meet the needs of our customers.

During implementation, our teams can rely on extensive industry know-how and an existing toolbox.

Demanding customers in specialized industries benefit from our expertise and the resulting transfer services.

Software development on embedded platforms

The basis of any embedded software is the operating system on which the application runs. Lightweight real-time operating systems or our own embedded Linux distribution are used as the basis, and bare metal is also possible.

We encapsulate the digital and analog interfaces of the devices for our customers, allowing them to focus on leveraging their core know-how. To support this, we provide a complete development toolchain.

We also undertake additional development tasks for our customers – particularly the user interface alongside the real-time application. Thanks to our own UX designers, we can offer both the design and implementation of user interfaces from a single source.

Programming of industrial controls

We are manufacturer-independent and are not restricted to Eckelmann’s own control systems. Instead, we focus on the individual requirements of our customers and their equipment specifications.

Our specialist teams are proficient in the current industry standards:

  • Siemens SIMATIC S
  • Allen-Bradley
  • Beckhoff
  • Schneider Electric
  • ABB
  • Emerson
  • General Electric

In the field of process control and SCADA systems:

  • Siemens SIMATIC PCS7
  • Siemens WinCC
  • AVEVA System Platform (formerly Wonderware)
  • and many more.

The basis of every embedded software application is the operating system on which the application runs. Eckelmann uses its own embedded Linux distribution as well as lightweight real-time operating systems.
