gat is a specialist in design, manufacturing and supply for automation systems and installations for the power industry. For more than 25 years gat has grown into an experienced service provider in electrical, instrumentation, control and automation engineering.

In order to meet the steadily growing requirements in the globalised markets, gat provides modern concepts for more efficient plants and increased profitability in production. After comprehensive analysis, gat identifies branch, business and project-related requirements and prepares optimised automation concepts.

Engineering, project planning and construction

In the varied field of modern electrical, measurement, control and automation engineering, gat plans and project-manages plants, implementing more than 2,000 projects. On that basis, the company develops customised solutions which are adapted to the particular project-specific requirements, from the basic engineering, with a list of measuring points and instruments, to detailed designs with device specification sheets, circuit diagrams and functional descriptions. Functional safety is our day-to-day business, including conception, implementation and proof acc. IEC61511. For this work we employ TÜV certified FS-engineers and programmers.

The appointed project engineer assists customers throughout the entire project. Close and direct cooperation allows quick and efficient project handling, even if the project plan is modified.

Process control engineering / central building control systems

The automation of processes guarantees transparent and constant production and improves safety, quality and efficiency. gat develops solutions that suit your detailed requirements by choosing the appropriate process control system and visualisation, especially for fail-safe and high available applications up to SIL 3. Therefore gat is a certified partner for major suppliers of control systems.

For frictionless communication in production or building automation gat also engineers and implements the corresponding high-performance and fail-safe networks and bus systems. For this purpose the company visualises processes, structures, functional chains, procedures or shops to enable the customer to completely control their plants.

The core activities in industrial automation includes:

  • Programmable logic controllers – S5, S7, S7-1200, S7-1500, ControlLogix, H41/51, HiMatrix, HIMax
  • Control systems – PCS7, DeltaV, Freelance
  • Central building control systems – Desigo Insight, SAIA PG5 Controls Suite, B-CON
  • Process visualisation – COROS, WinCC, WinCC flexible, Factory Link, Intouch, RS View
  • Industrial bus systems – DP2/L2, H1, DD, PA, Modbus, Profinet, ASi, Ethernet, CAN, BACnet, LON
