koenig-pa GmbH is a family-owned business that develops high-tech products for industrial automation and process control.
The company was founded in 1986. At the beginning of its activity, the company specialized in providing engineering services for installation and adjusting of technological equipment in chemical production.
In 2004, the company developed a new software platform fastCenter for creating industrial automation systems. For more than 15 years of cooperation, more than a thousand technological lines for the production of printed circuit boards of our key customer Atotech Deutschland GmbH have been equipped with multifunctional systems SCADA based on the fastCenter platform for monitoring, data acquisition and control of technological processes.
Since 2004, koenig-pa GmbH is a member of the EtherCAT Technology Group (ETG) — an international association of developers and manufacturers, which use EtherCAT technology. koenig-pa GmbH has become one of the leading experts in this technology and has developed a line of software products to help developers to use EtherCAT in their solutions for automation and control systems.
In 2013, considering the growing role of robotics in major industries, as well as the high demand for independent software solutions, our company expanded the software product range with KPA Motion that implement motion control functions.
In 2018, the unique system, KPA Master Redundancy (patent No. US 10,102,163 B2), for protecting automated control systems from failures was developed. In case of a failure of the “active” master, the presence of “passive” masters in the EtherCAT network configuration allows to switch control to the “passive” master immediately without waiting for the end of the cycle and without losing data.
In 2020, our company introduced KPA Automation softPLC, a multi-tasking PLC programming environment based on the straton® PLC core. KPA Automation softPLC complies with PLCopen standards, supports ST, IL, FBD, SFC, LD programming languages in accordance with IEC 61131-3 standard and can be used on both small and industrial platforms with or without an operating system.
More than 500 customers in various countries of the world and various industries successfully use koenig-pa GmbH software products, solutions and electronic devices.
The company has an extensive network of resellers selling licensed koenig-pa GmbH software in such countries as China, India, Italy, South Korea, USA and Japan.
