Remote access

Remote access is the prerequisite for flexible operation and monitoring of a system. We trust clear and tried-and-tested concepts.

The system that is optimal respectively for the owner-operator depends on

  • The requirements placed,
  • The number of systems to be monitored,
  • The necessity of data registration / evaluation,
  • Alarming in case of a malfunction.,
  • As well as on the communication channels available.


Telecontrol is the monitoring and control of remote systems by means of signal-converting methods. This can be done from one or more locations.
Telecontrol technology distinguishes between individual telecontrol stations and higher-level telecontrol control centers.
Central functions of telecontrol systems are e.g.

  • Support of all common transmission paths and combinations
  • Common Protocol
  • High-resolution data measurement and acquisition with buffering
  • Powerful data processing
  • fault message transmission
  • Modular extensibility
  • video surveillance
  • etc.

Process control system

A process control system is used to manage (control and regulate) a process engineering system such as a water treatment system or a complete water supply system. Process control systems are usually used at large-scale systems. In contrast to the WebCommunicator process control systems allow simultaneous connections to several stations / systems.

In the case of process control systems we place our trust in reliable and clever solutions, such as the process control system of Flowchief. Flowchief can be installed on a common PC with a Windows operating system. The process control system establishes all the connection via the international OPC standard (OLE for Process Control). Meaning that all the common automation systems can be coupled.

At complex systems we use, for example Siemens PCS 7.
