We convert. We save your time.

A proven solution in many successful projects.
We are specialists in ABB automation who provide a robust conversion service,
look inside how Things work:
Evaluation methods
  • Our conversion tool can reduce 90% of engineering efforts required for AC450 logic migration from 1000 to 100 work hours
  • Prevents human errors - significantly reduces technical risk and commissioning costs
  • Automatically conveted logic does not require further testing
  • The converted logic is free from complex nested structures, so it is optimal in terms of CPU load and readability
  • Pulp & Paper Library or standard AC800M libraries may be selected for conversion
  • Converter utilizes SW solutions verified during successful projects and long-term experience in AC450 & AC800M programming in Paper and Steel RMC.
  • Cost-saving in terms of tag count
  • AC800M code optimization functions for faster execution and for better code readability
  • Conversion of DB hidden terminals frequently used
  • National characters support for all comments and variable names
Easy evaluation methods
  • Choose conversion in evaluation mode for free limited to 1 page/PC program
  • Example of raw converted AC410 code is available for download
  • Our customers appreciate Shadowing test - testing converted logic running in parallel with original logic in AC450, with sharing the same inputs and including automatic comparison of outputs from original & new logic.
Our services
  • Delivery of the complete translated code of ABB Advant controllers in the status "Ready for FAT" or "Ready for Commissioning", including all post-conversion manual programming
  • Automated conversion from ABB AC800M Programs/Control modules to CBM Diagrams
  • Graphics migration from 800xA Visual Basic 6, AS500 or AdvaSoft to 800xA PG2
  • Programming new control logic
  • Consulting services regarding ABB control systems and Drives, Trainings
  • 800xA installation and configuration
  • Commissioning
  • Optimization of controls

Areas of expertise
  • Especially for Advant controllers migration Herman-Automation can rely on 25 years of experience in AC450 programming, 18 years working with AC800M and on 7 years working inside ABB mainly in metals and paper industries.
    We have successfully migrated several AC450, MP200, AC110 and APC-s to AC800M including commissioning.
    Our Conversion tool is the technical implementation of all these experiences.
