Programmable Logic Controllers (PLCs) are an integral part of logistics systems. Only a system integrator with thorough knowledge and expertise in this field can ensure that the logistics system is fully integrated and truly operates in real time.
Lowest level of control
At Inther Group, we have many years of in-depth experience with designing and engineering/reengineering mechanized systems within automated warehouses. We are experts in the integration of control systems within dominating or adjacent systems (WMS, ERP). To ensure that mechanical systems are precisely orchestrated and fully functioning, it is absolutely vital to control the lowest possible input/output (i/o) levels.
Inther Group’s control concept is based upon a decentralized hardware architecture with a proven modular software structure. Standardized and field proven software modules in combination with high-quality hardware products from well-known manufacturers guarantee highest reliability and maximum availability. All communication of the hardware like remote i/o, scales, barcode scanners, etc. is done via profinet.
As a system integrator, we mainly work with Siemens PLC equipment as our starting point. We have vast experience with the S7 300-400 range and the 1200-1500 range, with the latter being programmed via TIA Portal.
At Inther Group, we are used to working in live business environments in which costly technical problems and machine downtime must be avoided. Extensive testing and well-prepared failure scenarios including remote access are crucial to guarantee uptime. This is where our highly skilled service department makes all the difference.
