Customer profile and project information

Efficiency, sustainability and economic success are aspects that are considered in every decision at Heizomat Gerätebau Energiesysteme GmbH – including when deciding on the renovation of the control and visualization systems for their heating systems by Siemens. Energy generation is in the foreground. In addition to the heated material, precise control is especially critical.

Challenges

As a result of the switchover to Siemens SIMATIC, Heizomat Gerätebau Energiesysteme GmbH hopes to achieve modular expandability of the control and plant systems. Furthermore, for the globally active company Heizomat, the system integration of its heating systems and the availability of the operating system for the plants in several languages represent an important prerequisite.

Solution

The medium-sized company relies on the tried and tested technology from Siemens and on an integrated range comprising a compact PLC with powerful visualization. Thanks to the comprehensive system, the TIA Portal, and all other components linked under it, the entire process is becoming considerably more flexible.

Customer benefits

  • Simple text maintenance in at least 14 languages… by importing and exporting all of the texts in tabular form, e.g. for translation agencies
  • "[...] considerably more flexible [...]"                       … by adding expansion modules depending on the complexity of the heating system
  • Clear and understandable messages… e.g. due to graphical display of operating and diagnosis information
