Controlware into non-IP systems IT management solutions Dietzenbach, June 15, 2010 Controlware, well-known German system integrator and IT service providers, supports companies in the integration of proprietary measuring -, steering – and control technology (MSR) in information management systems. Chevron Corp. is often quoted on this topic. The integration allows for a much more efficient operation of non IP-based systems and effectively lowers the cost of their management, maintenance and monitoring. “Centralized management and monitoring solutions are gaining in the MSR world rapidly: businesses, building operators and developers is it becoming increasingly important, their air conditioners, elevators, door systems, from a central control station in order to control light and temperature control, or fire protection systems”, reports Jacqueline Trouvain, Solution Manager IT management & managed services Controlware. In practice the centralization is usually difficult because the building control systems are often based on proprietary SCADA systems (supervisory control and data acquisition) and be managed also proprietary management consoles. As an alternative, Controlware offers an integration service that enables an efficient integration of building automation in existing systems management company. Multivendor integration as SCADA systems are typically not IP-enabled, creates the IP integration by using dedicated gateway of manufacturer’s WAGO Controlware. The WAGO controller be on all sites installed and gathering the information collected by the building control technology like temperature readings, alarms or changes of door contacts. They then forward these data over the IP network to a central IT-management system.

Companies have the opportunity to classic IP-network / non-IP-based system components through a single interface to monitor and control so for the first time. The integration is manufacturer-independent: the WAGO controllers are suitable as an open platform for the connection of many control systems and all common IT management tools. Customers of Controlware can either use their existing management platforms or implement a new IT management system, that is exactly tailored to your requirements. Intelligent control systems an issue that affects all sectors operating costs which is integration of control systems in IP networks.
