Control technology at Bachofen

Seamless control, monitoring, remote measurement and convenient remote maintenance of your plant can be provided via the internet, no matter whether you are managing your plant or several buildings. Our range comprises programmable gateways, RFID identification and HMI operating panels and controls. We also have a Fieldbus program with block I/O modules and modular I/O systems for applications in areas with and without an explosion risk.

The technology is controlled with our flexible interface program which offers you many advantages: compact designs and a large selection of operating concepts and configurations. The many different functions for splitting, converting, processing, transforming and adapting digital and analogue signals make this solution extremely user-friendly. Wireless transmission also offers a simple means of transferring process data from the field to higher-level systems.

Benefit from our expertise and our long-standing partnership with well-known manufacturers including Banner, Turck, HMS/eWON and JCM TECHNOLOGIES.
