Process-Electronic GmbH supplied furnace controls and a plant-floor automation upgrade to Hansen Transmissions for its gearbox manufacturing and assembly plant in Edegem, Belgium. The order includes a Protherm 300 controller for automatic process control of a carburizing pit furnace and its implementation into the existing Protherm 9000 plant supervision and automation framework.

Process-Electronic also upgraded Hansen's Protherm 9000 with a hot standby system to provide fail-safe back-up protection if the primary production server fails. In anticipation of such a failure, the system will automatically switch over to a redundant server, circumventing potential disruptions and costly production downtime.
