Software development

Interested in reducing maintenance and repair costs while keeping your production system productive in the long term?

We at MakroSolutions share many years of know-how and a competent, vendor-neutral team in our RetroFIT division. We know your requirements and needs, which we will integrate into a customised revamp project.

Our automation and control system solutions will bring your system back up to the state of the art – your system will work more efficiently and require less maintenance, while maximising availability using control technology from B&R to ensure long-term production reliability.

Interested in continuing with your existing production system while benefiting from the functionality of the future?

Software is a key component, and plays an essential role in system productivity. Based on a functional analysis, we will provide you with the opportunity of integrating your own requirements. Our modular and continuously evolving software modules allow powerful features and visualisations tailored to your specifications.

This can give your production system a second lease of life using our modularised RetroFIT concepts regardless of previous product vendors.

Makro M-EMS energy monitoring system

Makro M-EMS is a system for measuring, recording and analysing all relevant energy consumption rates to help you improve system efficiency on a continuous basis. After all, you can only manage what you measure.

Makro M-EMS is available either stand-alone or as a fully integrated solution. You can decide whether to install Makro M-EMS separately from your existing building management, SCADA or distributed control system, or integrate the energy monitoring system into your distributed control system.

Makro M-EMS records all energy sources and consumption rates. Apart from electrical energy, Makro M-EMS meters fuel gas and oil, steam, heat, compressed air, water and other utilities as well as renewable energy.

We would be happy to install and configure your Makro M-EMS system after thorough consultation.
