Modernized process control technology thanks to audako IoT platform for the water supply of the city of Schotten

Our Customer

Arrive and enjoy. In the heart of the Vogelsberg volcanic region lies the town of Schotten with its 15 districts, surrounded by lush meadows, deep green forests and the typical Vogelberg hedge landscape. The medieval center of the town, built between the 14th and 18th centuries, invites you to linger with its lovingly restored half-timbered houses, small alleys and well-kept parks.

Task (symbol image)


The implementation of the legal regulations,

without a functioning telecontrol and process control technology, was almost impossible to achieve

The outdated telecontrol system

was already more than 20 years old and therefore no longer state of the art

The outdated system ran via analog telephone lines

whose contracts could be terminated and no longer continued

The local proximity of the support

company was decisive


The costs were to be manageable and fit for purpose

existing PLC controls were to be retained, which made the execution much more difficult

The manageable project budget was firmly in sight at all times
The old and new systems ran in parallel at times

Our Solution

All buildings were connected via LTE with multi-

net SIM cards networked via many mobile network operators to ensure availability in the event of a provider failure

audako runs on a redundant

server system at the head office

In the audako IoT platform, any number of plants

and outdoor structures can be merged into one central system

The migration during operation of audako and

the audako Edge Gateway was seamless

The gateway is a fast and compact solution for

connecting to the IoT, as no additional expensive control cabinets are needed and multiple devices can be connected together

The connection of the IoT Edge Gateways to the central

network, in which the audako IoT platform is operated, takes place using the established OpenVPN. This provides the customer with secure end-to-end encryption, excluding intermediaries or other third parties.

The customer accesses the audako

platform via HTTPS/SSL encryption, which is based on the most modern TLS standard in version 1.3, via the transmitted web interface. A solution that he can nevertheless access web-based with secure authentication from any end device
