  • Ergonomics in Automation

    When you think about Automation do you connect it to machinery and equipment? That is correct of course, but there is more to it!

  • Profitable Engineering for HMI SCADA projects

    Reduce your engineering times by up to 80%. zenon is solely oriented in supporting you for quick engineering.


Stable and safe

Only a robust equipment environment is efficient. Using remote maintenance and Hot Reload functions zenon can offer smooth servicing, control and update processes - without restarting the Runtime, without an equipment stop. This ensures increased availability and stability whilst providing maximum data security.




Security through usability

The key to improved equipment security? The user gains uncompromising orientation - with zenon.  Because more usability shortens training times, increases attention and ensures quicker and more efficient reactions in work processes.


Security and protection

Strong network encryption, comprehensive user management and worldwide unique security mechanisms protect your zenon network. Your equipment runs safely and your mind can be at ease.


Count on maximum security in HMI/SCADA and contact us!


User friendly and flexible

zenon offers equipment efficiency starting with the user. An individual workstation is the key to ergonomic and efficient working. Adjust projects according to individual user needs, in advance or during running operations - so you can create future-oriented jobs. New employees are quickly trained and error-free control ensures effective equipment operations.




Usability allows for efficiency

The modern design and up-to-date, intuitive control, by means of Multitouch gestures familiar from tablet computers and Smart phones, offer the user a more interesting way of working. For increased attention and faster response times in operations? Thus optimization potential can be more quickly recognized and implemented.


Ergonomics for all

zenon ensures efficient control of equipment whilst allowing for the separation of design and functionalities.  Therefore, the most diverse corporate design requirements can be fulfilled and any desired language can be easily integrated.
