Automation R&D Team Will Offer Software And Expertise

Voith’s new automation research and development center at the company’s Digital Campus in Raleigh, North Carolina will support customers in the North American market with software solutions and technical expertise and is focused on developing software products that meet international industrial hardware standards. For its first products, the team is creating software to operate hydropower products, which will allow the use of digital controls and modular solutions for automation. Using a high-level, uniform programming language, these software products will be available off the shelf, which is intended to maximize each product’s utility and allow the software to run independent of hardware-specific instructions.


Another expected benefit of the software is that the user can purchase the software product once, install it on a preferred platform and migrate as needed to additional devices or as the customer performs system upgrades.
