Bachmann electronic expands Portfolio!
HMI and SCADA systems from Certec EDV GmbH strengthen expertise in complete solutions
As of 01.01.2012 Bachmann electronic GmbH has held the majority stake in Certec EDV GmbH in Eisenstadt (Austria), which has thus become part of the Bachmann Group. As a supplier of complete system solutions in the automation field, Bachmann electronic aims to expand its existing portfolio with the innovative technologies and further extend its expertise in offering complete solutions.
Since its founding in 2005 Certec has specialized in the development of state-of-the-art web HMI and SCADA systems. HMI stands for Human Machine Interface and describes the operating interface between man and machine. SCADA stands for Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition and describes the use of a computer system to monitor and control technical processes.
Broad-based know-how and many years of experience
With 20 employees at present, the company has an extensive application know-how and many years of experience, which it has demonstrated with its atvise® product line. atvise® offers the world's first fully featured HMI in pure web technology as well as a SCADA solution that is fully compliant with the OPC Unified Architecture (UA). This enables efficient object-oriented engineering and extensive plant operation at any location and with any device, simply with any standard web browser.
Benefits for customers
“With this step we are taking the requirements of our customers into account,” Bernhard Zangerl, CEO of Bachmann electronic, explains the merger and adds: “We are further pursuing our corporate strategy of supplying complete solutions.” Michael Haas, CEO of Certec, explains: “The long-term and worldwide development of new technologies can only be achieved with a close partnership with manufacturers like Bachmann. The participation will also ensure the long-term availability of our products.”
Certec headquarters in Eisenstadt
The company management of Certec remains unchanged. The headquarters will also remain in Eisenstadt, as well as the distribution network and the broad availability of the product line.
Bachmann electronic GmbH will strategically expand its product and service portfolio with the fully web based HMI and SCADA solutions of Certec.
The increasing complexity and the constantly rising level of automation in a wide range of different installations require future-oriented technologies for monitoring and controlling processes. SCADA systems make a key contribution here and ensure the highest level of safety, particularly if, like the Certec systems, they offer operation that is not restricted to a particular location or device.
