  • ACRON performance and exibility

    Business advantages

    The basis of every automated system is its data.

    This forms the basis for all logging, analysis and

    verification of quality.

    As the foundation for all company operations, data

    is crucial for improving productivity, providing

    protection against claims for recourse and thus

    in determining the success of the company.

    In all business fields, products will only be

    competitive if it is possible to boost business

    efficiency. This not only applies to operating

    companies in search of reliable products but also

    to the end customer.

    If quality, productivity, profitability and security

    can be improved, production will be optimised. In

    addition, this reduces the costs for maintenance and

    compliance with regulations, as well as allowing staff

    to respond promptly.

    ACRON is the perfect solution for fast

    assessment using historical data.

  • The philosophyApplication possibilities

    ACRON is a manufacturer independent product. This

    concept enables ACRON to be used in nearly any

    sector. The already finished projects show that the

    product is being used more and more in the national

    and international market.

    The concept enables ACRON to be used in nearly any

    vertical market. Realized projects show that the pro-

    duct fulfills a lot of different requirements and that

    it is being used worldwide. Nearly all kind of analysis

    and reports are relisable so that there is a wide range

    of applications. The scalable product, the client / ser-

    ver architecture and the data security make the most

    project requirements satisfiable.

    Different language versions and an option

    to change the language (even in the project)

    predestine ACRON for the internationally

    operating plant and machine construction.

    Please ask for the actual available languages.

    ACRON is characterised by easy handling, flexibility

    and simple project planning (two-layer concept).

    With this product, which offers outstanding value for

    money, we guarantee maximum perational reliability

    and data security as well as high availability. We

    contribute to the success of our customers, and they

    influence the product accordingly. In a continuous

    dialogue, new ideas and requirement impact on

    future functionalities in ACRON. The experiences

    of the last 15 years are reflected in the design and

    efficiency of the product.

  • ACRON moduls



    Data acquisition from any source.

    Link to more than 20 different


    OPC und DDE


    Ethernet, Industrial Ethernet, MPI, Profibus,

    Modbus and many other protocols

    Data pre-treatment in memory

    Telecontrol interfaces

    High data security through

    Three Level Cache (TLC)

    Comprehensive control system links, OPC,

    DDE, ODBC, ASCII, CSV and many manufac-

    turer-specific PLC/DDC protocols are available

    for data acquisition.ACRON data can be ac-

    cessed via the ODBC standard.

    A connection to SAP is available on demand.

    More than 20 direct connections to HMI SCADA

    and other SCADA are done over certified inter-



    The comfortable operating interface from ACRON.

    In a clearly structured environment:

    reports and protocolls are displayed, archived,

    printed out and/or sent by e-mail

    data backup and data export are initiated

    manual inputs (laboratory values) are recorded

    Multiple remote protocols can controlled via

    different remote connections. The import of time-

    stamps in ACRON is a standard functionality.

    As a few examples there are ODP via GPRS and Sinaut


  • Alarm/message and service modul

    The ACRON tool for the creation of all necessary

    malfunctions and message reports and their

    comprehensive statistics.

    In the service module operating times, runtimes

    and switching cycles continue to be saved and

    summed up and then submitted to an anticipatory

    maintenance system. Complete unit histories can

    be displayed, and the acquisition of times and costs

    is possible.


    Convenient and user-friendly display using curves.

    Measuring points or e.g. minimum/maximum values

    and other statistical evaluations can be identified

    differently using various markers

    special display of digital variables in graphs

    comprehensive statistical evaluations

    relative/absolute time offset for every variable

    unlimited analysis of data

    very fast access to data

    Excel add in

    Convenient access to all data in ACRON for simple and

    fast import of values.

    Embedded in the MS-Excel environment,

    further evaluations can be created very easily.

    The query mechanism is easy to configure and an

    online mode is also possible.

    Data collect

    A function designed to collect any values from

    different ACRON projects in one central application.

    This function is either automatic or manual using di-

    alup or dedicated lines. The standard applications are,

    for example, regional water and waste water associa-

    tions which wish to perform benchmarking or com-

    panies with more than one production location and a

    requirement for production data to be evaluated cen-

    trally. Consistent data management via higher-level

    control centres is ensured and a hierarchy of multiple

    levels is possible.

    ACRON web

    Reading access to all data in ACRON.

    Web based analysis and queries allow the complete

    access to all data in ACRON.

    The ACRON Web-client enables the reading access to

    all reports and graphical data views.

    It is possible to integrate this into the plant control

    and ERP system (e.g. SAP).

  • Fulfilling laws and regulations


    ACRON generates comprehensive reports from

    process data for freely selectable time periods.

    Helpful compression algorithms produce data for

    daily, weekly, monthly and yearly reports. It is also

    possible to generate reports that have variable times

    (for e.g. shifts). Event or batch reports are defined

    by start and end conditions. These types of reports

    are often found in the process and food industry as

    well as in the production.

    Reports and application examples from

    various industries are available.

    The report assistant helps the user to generate

    complex reports quickly and reduces the

    project planning time. Nearly all protocols and

    calculations are possible.

    ACRON fulfils standards laws and regulations

    of many different branches (e.g. 21 CFR 11,

    ATV M260, TA Abfall, etc.). Through its flexibility

    it is easy to assign process values to individual

    layouts. This enables the user to gain fast access to

    information out of his plant and amortisation of his

  • Architecture, security and database

    Other features:

    high performance and very

    fast response time

    change-oriented recording

    time resolution in millisecond range

    up to 8-fold database redundancy

    arithmetic operations with over

    100.000 data points

    Thanks to its modular design,

    ACRON caters for all requirements

    of historical data processing ran-

    ging from the smallest possible ap-

    plications to large-scale distributed

    systems. ACRON is in possess of a

    robust and error-tolerant database

    with a client-server architecture.
