Automation

Industrie 4.0 IMG_4160-1-960x667.jpg

As a subdivision of electrical engineering, automation technology offers a variety of options for conveying practical contents on the one hand and for integrating participant-centred exercise phases under both technical and pedagogical aspects on the other hand.

Mechatronic systems are used, in which signals are detected by active or passive sensors. Programmes are developed to control or regulate typical tasks, simulated with graphical tools and finally tested on real equipment. The actuators used provide the participants with the opportunity to get to know, compare and select drive technologies. Depending on the focus of the further education, our spectrum ranges from simple microcontrollers to networked industrial programmable logic controllers. To ensure the transfer to the home country, we consider worldwide standards.

Alternatively, in the field of embedded systems we offer the possibility of an electronics-related view of automation technology. Current microcontroller systems are connected to electronic components or assemblies and programmed with appropriate languages. In doing so, modern measuring devices such as oscilloscopes or corresponding apps are used.
