METANcontrol

METANcontrol is a reliable control system that runs on independent systems including the programmable logic controller, an industrial PC, a visualization PC and the InfoModule. In case of failure of the industrial PC or the visualization PC, data backups info systems, and user interfaces continue to operate error-free.

The innovative calculation program dinaMETAN ensures the optimal feed of the biogas power plant, which in turn is visually controlled by the METANspy camera.

  • The entire system was developed by BTS Biogas
  • User-friendly
  • Very stable system
  • Remote control and remote maintenance
  • Web-based
  • Service 24/7
