Industrial automation and robotics
Our engineering team implements projects in a wide variety of areas: from motor control systems to the launch of automated assembly lines based on Industry 4.0 and the Industrial IoT.
You can rely on our expertise in robotics and automation engineering: starting with a proof of concept and finishing with the implementation of a complex system at your production site.
The upper level: SCADA & HMI
Design of HMI panels, including human-machine interface development.
Software development for SCADA (supervisory control and data acquisition): we develop HMI systems, such as Simatic WinCC, to enable our clients to build custom SCADA systems.
Development of OPC UA data acquisition servers and software.
Controller level: automation devices & PLCs
Automation engineering: hardware design and software development.
Electronics, enclosure and firmware development for programmable logic controllers (PLC).
Development of data acquisition systems (DAQ) and distributed control systems (DCS).
Design of interface converters and media converters.
The lower level: sensors & motor control devices
Turnkey sensor design: enclosure and mechanical design; software development, maths and algorithms for the primary measuring transducer, schematic diagrams and PCB design.
Electronics, enclosure and firmware development for motor control devices: soft starters, frequency converters (VFD), servo drives, stepper motor controllers.
Design of Instrumentation and Control Systems
Protective shutdown devices.
Emergency automatics. Bay controllers / substation PLCs.
Measurement equipment to ensure power quality: technical and/or commercial energy accounting system (EAS).
Fault recorders, emergency oscilloscopes, fault locators, and software systems for the recording and analysis of fault processes based on fault waveforms from multiple sources.
Time servers and time synchronisation systems for devices based on various reference time sources and tools, such as “pulse per second” measurements with adaptive interfaces.
Managed switch routers, support for the IEC61850 and RSTP protocols, and communication redundancy boxes (HSR/PRP).
Power line communication systems (PLC). Smart power management systems: distributed energy management, industrial solar power systems, etc.
Automatic transfer switches (ATS) / commutated switchgear.
Uninterruptible power supplies (UPS), battery chargers, back-up power controllers.
Power supplies and power converters (inverters).
We help our customers transform their business with the help of Industry 4.0 solutions by developing and implementing mobile and industrial robots. These solutions help manufacturing plants significantly increase the efficiency and safety of their processes and free the human employees from complex, tedious, and dangerous tasks.
Our business partners have experienced first-hand that using co-bots (collaborative robots) can bring a business’ productivity to the next level or even serve as the foundation for new business ideas. The Promwad engineering team is inspired by these success stories, yet we realise that mass deployment of robotics can only be achieved with the advanced development of sensors, connectivity, power components, security systems, and miniaturisation of electronics.
We are passionate about industrial equipment and robotics design and would be happy to help you with the following tasks:
Design of complex mechatronic systems, such as lifts, conveyors, co-bots, servo drives, CNC, printers, etc. — full development cycle, from the first prototypes to mass production.
Robotics software development: firmware, drivers, and software based on Linux and ROS*.
* ROS (Robot Operating System) is an open-source robotics middleware suite for software engineers.

Since 2004, we have completed hundreds of electronics design projects for global brands and local manufacturers, which helped them to transform their business with cutting-edge technologies. We are primarily focused on Industry 4.0, IIoT, telecom, adaptive computing systems (FPGA + AI), and the automotive industry.
Industrial automation and robotics are an essential part of our key R&D activities. We work with many other calculations, such as the analysis of frequency deviation, currents and voltages, and calculation of active, reactive, and apparent power.
Our engineering team has fundamental knowledge in this area:
we know the theory behind automatic controls and electric drives
we implement algorithms on FPGA, Embedded Linux, MCU
we use V/F, FOC for PMSM, ACIM, BLDC
we apply mathematical physics equations and DSP mathematics
we are proficient in algorithms for electric power systems
We allocate an engineering team with a tech lead & management to work together with our client’s teams. Therefore, our clients do not have to bring in their own in-house specialists or an expensive external integrator.
