SYS TEC electronic’s headquarters.
Developing and building the heart that makes machines work SYS TEC electronic GmbH develops and implements customised hardware and software solutions for industrial control and communication, tailored to clients’ requirements. No matter if railway technology or machine tools, the company designs control solutions that make a machine function – as a partner from concept to series production.

SYS TEC electronic customers are always looking for very specific control solutions, something not yet on the market or at least not with the functions their machine has to fulfil. At SYS TEC, electronic engineers accompany the process right from the very first draft to a full requirement profile, from prototype to series production. In short, from the first idea until the control is built into the machine. Executive manager Armin von Collrepp emphasises how important it is to be agile when tackling new developments. “During the project phase there are often changes and the solution in the end often does not look like it was thought out in the beginning.” Being able to implement new ideas 80 | Issue 43 | October 2016
is what makes SYS TEC electronic so successful. “Our team is very creative and works on very different industrial applications,” says Von Collrepp. Being able to adapt to different tasks has allowed the team to build up a large fundus of ideas and technical innovations to work with when developing new control modules. Founded in 1990, the German-based company now has over 25 years’ experience in developing microcontroller systems and industrial communication. Among their 90 employees, 30 are engineers, which is a very high proportion. Engineers are not only involved in the de-
veloping phase but also throughout testing and production. This is the only way to guarantee the high quality customers need. Especially in the fields SYS TEC electronic is working in.“We have a strong expertise in developing machine tool control units and electronic components for use in railways,” says Von Collrepp. The latter is an especially sensitive field that has to take vibration, shock and electromagnetic radiation into consideration. This is why SYS TEC has own testing facilities in-house. SYS TEC electronic supplies a package that includes not only hardware and software solutions but also the necessary applications. In short, clients can deploy the component into their machine and start working. But what might be even more important is the long-term co-operation with SYS TEC electronic. Components can be delivered in addition five, ten or 15 years after the first implementation. In short, over a machine’s whole life cycle. www.systec-electronic.com
