Machine Control

SCS develops tailor-made solutions for machine control.

Using software control, entire mechanical processes can be appraised at high levels of abstraction and implemented more efficiently. At the same time, interfaces with other components and applications (enterprise applications, ERP, OEE cockpits) are indispensable for today’s business processes.

Complex machines also require high-performance, potentially decentralized control systems close to hardware. Powerful embedded computers, configurable hardware (FPGAs), efficient communication protocols and realtime-capable operating systems can form the basis for flexible and future-proof control systems.

Our broad expertise from hardware to software, the work in interdisciplinary teams and the application of state-of-the-art technologies and software development methods enable us to satisfy customer requirements at all times.
