SPS compact: Coupling included

Bruckmann Steuerungstechnik (BSG) has been planning and manufacturing automation solutions for the plastic producing industry since 1995. Reuse and automation play an important role in the electrical design. What is special about BSG is that the quotation system is coupled with the ECAD solution using the One Tool configurator it has written itself. All relevant items included in a quotation are transferred to the WSCAD SUITE for the complete electrical engineering design, including complete, standard-compliant documentation.
