Automation with Foresight

Production must be fail-safe, quality, safety and transparency must be increased, and efficiency must be improved: Today, companies are increasingly under pressure to automate processes sensibly and sustainably. We support you with well thought-out solutions that create long-term added value – for you and for your customers.

Control technology

Complex control technology systems and data couplings are required for holistic, future-proof automation. At gat, we combine control and visualization in a sensible and resource-saving way to create an integrated control technology that can be used to efficiently monitor and control processes: An added value that provides our customers with investment security and flexibility. For this purpose, we gladly rely on the control systems of our partners:

  • Siemens: PCS7
  • Emerson: DeltaV

We are also happy to offer you project handling with CENTUM + ProSafe from Yokogawa.

Our services are available to you both separately and as a package.
Let's talk about what makes the most sense for you and your company!

Programmable logic controllers (PLC) and SSPS (fail-safe)

For the control of your plants in industry and mechanical engineering, we flexibly adapt to your specifications and systems: We want to support you in realizing your goals in the best possible way – if necessary, also by integrating older hardware or unusual software. With our know-how in the field of safety-related control systems (SSPS), we are your partner when it comes to ensuring not only availability but also the necessary personal, plant and environmental safety. Our certified employees have a lot of experience and have already completed numerous demanding projects.

Our preferred SPS and SSPS systems:

  • Siemens: S7, S7-1200/1500
  • HIMA: H41/51, HiMatrix, HIMax
  • Rockwell / Allen Bradley: ControlLogix   
  • B&R: X20

Our programs in realization:

  • Siemens:   Step 7 und TIA Portal
  • Moeller: Moeller S40
  • AllenBradley: RSLogix

We also take care of your older control or visualization (e.g. S5 and Coros). Please contact us for migration and upgrades! Furthermore, we have already handled projects with supplementary components and programming in addition to the pure control system:

Visual C++, Visual Basic, Delphi, Turbo-Pascal, Access-Basic, SQL-Server (z. B. per ODBC), Oracle, COM, Square D, UML, Concept, Unity, PL7, OS-9 u. a.

Network and bus systems

Automation and operation can only run safely, smoothly and efficiently on the basis of up-to-date, centralized data storage. We at gat plan and implement fail-safe networks for this purpose and select the bus system suitable for your project. We offer various tools and protocols for communication between different programs, Scada systems (supervisory control and data acquisition) and SQL databases, as well as other software services such as remote maintenance on request.


A well set up and equally well managed database enables more efficient work and creates a flexible basis for all current and future processes in automation: Data is the indispensable basis for process histories, documentation requirements, links and highly complex control strategies.

At gat, we use database systems from proven manufacturers and configure powerful digital storage on this basis, allowing you to collect, archive and meaningfully link your relevant data.
