Especially on the basis of the tense economy, we presented ourselves at the SPS 2019 as the leading trade fair for smart and digital automation. Our alerting solution makes optimal use of your staff and supports your maintenance and emergency teams in a cost-efficient manner.

The number of exhibitors with their own stand space is greater than ever before. In addition to their innovative strength, the exhibitors at the stands presented numerous new products and solutions for the challenges of today and tomorrow.

At SPS 2019, 1,585 exhibitors have gathered on an area of 135,500 m2 presents.

And at the SPS 2020, the Alarm IT Factory will of course again present the Alarm Control Center and present new features for professional alarm solutions.

In spring you will find us at the Hanover Fair in Hall 016 at Stand F12 from April 20th to 24th, 2020. We look forward to your visit and the lively exchange about possible applications in your company.

Our outlook for 2020:

  • ACC in the cloud
    • Host the ACC in the cloud instead of on your own computers? This is particularly interesting for companies that have many locations with few participants. The control systems are connected to a central ACC, clients and the user administration ensure the separation of the data of the locations.
    • Here, the ACC development uses the previous experience of hosting the ACC web service for notifications on iPhones with Microsoft Azure. This is now being expanded step by step for the entire ACC.
  • Discontinuation of Alarm Control Center V4.7 – V4.13
    • The following ACC versions are hereby discontinued. As of the date below, no more extensions will be available for these versions, and technical support will also be discontinued.
    • Deadline December 31, 2019: Discontinuation of ACC V4.7, V4.8, V4.10, V4.11 and V4.12
    • Deadline September 30, 2020: Discontinuation of ACC V4.13
