From open automation platform to industrial ecosystem

At the end of 2019, we launched an alternative concept to the previous, proprietary automation systems on the market in the form of ctrlX AUTOMATION. This was all based on the idea that the industry will only be able to successfully deal with increasingly complex tasks if it has solutions that are open and straightforward and can be easily and flexibly implemented. What’s more, the new generation of engineers and software developers wants to use technologies and tools that have also long since been considered the standard outside of the industry.
