Our automation control products are based around our Operator Control Station (OCS) concept and are used in all areas of automation.
OCS combines a Controller, Operator Interface, Network and I/O into a single product.
Programmable Logic Controllers (PLC's)

The OCS automation solution is comparable with a mid sized PLC in terms of performance. Programmed by a single, powerful ladder logic software package, you can actually develop Operator Interface screens within the ladder software as well as the automation control functions.
Most of our products also feature the CAN port which can be used in either CsCAN or CANopen mode. Horner standard called CsCAN provides a powerful network to other units or SCADA at a minimal cost and provides a single point of connection to the network for programming, monitoring and troubleshooting. CANopen is a industry recognized standard that enables the connectivity options to a third party equipment like Drives, IO modules and more.
In addition to our CAN protocols we also support serial Modbus RTU Master and Slave. Other fieldbuses are available on some units.
Ethernet versions are also available which provide 3 common protocols including Modbus TCP/IP.
Operator Interface (HMI)
Our range of operation interface products allow you to choose from small Text based screens to large Colour TFT Screens, all integrated with the Automation Controller as one product and easily programmed.
Input / Output
Our I/O systems are Integrated within the OCS, Pluggable into or Remote Mounted to the OCS.
Our QX Colour Touch range I/O can be interconnected by means of a High Speed Plastic Fibre Optic Bus System.
Our extensive I/O range encompasses both Digital Modules and Analogue Modules which feature inputs from most Temperature Measuring Devices.
We also have a wide range of Communications and Specialist Modules including High Speed Counters and Stepper Indexer Modules.
Our Operator Interface Products (HMI's) are based around our TIU range of Operator Stations. While offered at low end price levels, they actually provide high end features.
These very flexible units range from 2 line Text Models to Colour Touchscreen TFT. We also have a range of Semi-Graphics Screens that allow a level of animation at low cost.
We have very easy to use programming software that is guaranteed to get you up and running quickly.
Communications is a key feature of the TIU range. As well as Fieldbus versions, we have over 100 Communication Protocols and are actively creating more drivers each month. If what you require is not yet available, please contact us and we will try to provide if for you quickly.
Smartstack I/O Modules, controlled by our Maths Script Language, can be added to our larger units thereby enhancing their capabilities.
We pride ourselves on fulfilling our customers' specific needs while providing significant value in the Industrial, Process and Automation solutions we offer.If our current product selection does not include what you need, please contact us with your specific requirements and we will do our utmost to accommodate you.
We routinely make product adaptations at volumes that you would not have thought possible. This gives you the opportunity to get exactly what you want.
Our business has always been characterised by this flexible approach and we intend to continue adapting in order to satisfy our customers completely.
It's the Horner way !
