Our company is a planning and execution office for integral tunnel safety and control technology. We rely on the latest technologies without being dependent on a single provider. All systems used are established and have been able to prove themselves over decades. We not only rely on openness and independence in terms of hardware, but also rely on open-source components and frameworks wherever possible for software. Above all with the visualization and the control systems. These are developed by us using the latest HTML5 technology, without sacrificing security. All connections are encrypted and monitored. This applies not only to the software, but also to the networks. Because, as is well known, there are also many networks or network protocols on the market. Here, too, you can choose between proprietary or open protocols. We prefer the latter.
On the planning side, we develop systems from the pre-design phase to Construction Administration (CA). When executing the systems, we deliver all documents such as the specification of services and performance descriptions, all electrical drawings such as principal diagrams, electrical diagrams, control cabinet dispositions, cabling plans, electrical performance calculations, etc. Function descriptions and program flow charts are also part of our services, as well as the entire commissioning, tests of the systems and their decreases.
Our software is developed and documented in a structured manner. The control software includes all functions necessary to ensure safe operation of the infrastructure. Our focus is on the greatest possible degree of automation so that maintenance is burdened with as little manual intervention as possible. In addition, our focus is also on energy efficiency. Because our systems combine safety with the lowest possible energy consumption. For example, it makes no sense to run a tunnel ventilation system when there is little to no traffic. In order to make this possible, we use the sensors built into the tunnel and use all the functionality of the individual systems integrally instead of just using individual sensors assigned to the systems. This means that we use the sensors intelligently across all systems.
The biggest highlight of our systems is – in addition to the intelligent control functions – the openly programmed visualization. Instead of relying on commercial products, we develop the control systems completely ourselves. This has several advantages. First, we save license fees from the commercial provider. For you as the end customer, this means that the system becomes cheaper. Second, we never come across any limiting requirements. This means that you get exactly the system you want. The expression “doesn’t work, doesn’t exist” hits the bull’s eye with us. The visualization is completely developed in HTML5. For you this means that you can open the system pictures with any browser. Plugins are not needed anywhere. We also do not have limited access, as is common with commercial control systems. It does not matter whether a single user or a hundred open the browser window and access the system. And best of all, all of this is included in the scope of delivery. Thanks to the open programming in HTML5, adjustments are made in no time at all. With the appropriate specialist knowledge, such adjustments could also be carried out directly by the end customer himself. We call this visualization «Infraview». But if you prefer commercial products, that’s no problem either. Our employees are familiar with many commercial products. WinCC o.a., Cimplicity, Wonderware, Simatic WinCC. We could expand this list at will.
