The main task of the group is the hard- and software development needed to support the realisation of scientific experiments and the maintenance of existing electronic equipment. Commercially available equipment rarely meets the special demands of scientific work, e.g., of field measurements. To stabilise the instruments’ process parameters, despite changing environmental conditions, additional process controls for temperature, pressure or flux have to be implemented.

Since these systems are often newly developed and modified, there has been an increasing demand for highly flexible and scalable process control hard- and software. Although primarily needed for control, data management, archiving and visualisation, the equipment is also used in automated process control, i.e. without the operator. The realisation of such applications is based on a modular system consisting of various processors, input/output modules and software modules.
