On the basis of an extensive spectrum of services and applications experience in many sectors, Eckelmann offers its customers complete automation solutions for manufacturing machinery and plants from a single source and under a single responsibility.

The suitable control technology

As an independent systems integrator, Eckelmann, together with its customers – that is to say, independently of manufacturers – selects the appropriate platform. This includes drive technology, control software as well as operating & monitoring software. Should standard systems prove insufficient, Eckelmann will develop tailor-made supplements (hardware and software).

As a member of the Siemens Solution Partner Automation Scheme, Eckelmann has particularly extensive experience with the Simatic S7 automation system, Sinamics drive technology and with the associated operator panels. Controllers for machines and plants with several coordinated axes of motion are implemented with motion control systems such as Simotion from Siemens.

Communication from the field to the control level

Communication in distributed automation systems is realised by industrial bus systems such as PROFIBUS, PROFINET, ASi bus, INTERBUS or SERCOS III. Programmable logic controllers (PLCs), fieldbus and SCADA systems from major manufacturers are used in response to the needs of the project. In this way, integrated control solutions are generated from the field to the control level.

Powerful multi-platform automation system

E•ProBAS is Eckelmann’s own multi-platform automation system (PC / IPC and VMEbus). It is suitable both for the engineering of compact control functions and for the control of complex distributed plants with fast control loops and hard real-time conditions.
