Batch-Controls and Software for the construction industry


... Are you sure that we can save money if we use it ?
Batch control
With our controls , buildings such as the Yas Hotel on Yas Marina Circuit in Abu Dhabi has been built


CMS control systems from Simma Electronic can be flexibly dimensioned and therefore also adapted for a wide range of areas of application throughout the construction materials industry.

The operation of the controls is simple and easy to understand. Maximum investment protection is ensured through the use of the industrial versions of standard PC and PLC components.

The controls are programmed using Microsoft.Net and Siemens Step 7. Thanks to the use of global standards such as Profibus and Profinet, all electronic assemblies can be connected.

  • Ready mix concrete plants

  • Precast plants

  • Dry batch plants

  • Gravel processing plant

  • Gravel loading plants

  • Dry mortar plants

Our CMS control systems were developed from practical experience. This means that all modules and functions are already in use by our customers and are doing good work there. You can access a wide range of functionalities. Wherever necessary we will implement special customisations for you.

Workability curve for each batch for a vehicle is plotted. This allows for early identification of the final workability. The mixer only opens once the workability is within the desired range.

The aggregate filling and cement filling can be integrated into the controls and operated via the on-screen visualisation.

Tool for optimisation of the plant output and for analysis of the dosing process.

Basic functions
