It all began with a vision.

Burkhard Schranz is bubbling over with ideas. In the course of his professional career, he combines interests and skills, observes trends and becomes a pioneer for digitalisation through his courage to implement them.

Even before the terms IoT and Industry 4.0 were on everyone's lips, Schranz had the technical development understood by them in mind. Today's optiMEAS GmbH works according to the vision: to optimise company processes and products sustainably and make them more efficient through digital networking of machines.

Start of optiMEAS Measurement and Automation Systems GmbH

Initiator Burkhard Schranz, after many years of experience in measurement and automation technology, starts in 2010 together with lawyer Sabrina Rokuss the optiMEAS Measurement and Automation Systems GmbH. To this end, he brings his former colleague and test bench specialist Dr Jens-Achim Kessel and transmission expert Dr Patrick Langfeld on board as co-partners.

In addition to the service, the company's own smart device series is growing rapidly. MEDILOG?, an award-winning project funded by the Hessen Agentur, has given rise to pioneering cloud-based technologies. These enable the optiMEAS customers to monitor their machines or plants live from anywhere in the world, to analyse, control and improve them with AI algorithms. The company, which has been ISO 9001 certified since 2011, acts as a pioneer in the field of digital transformation from its location in Friedrichsdorf.

The conquest of new markets

According to the motto: "Recognise today what will no longer work tomorrow", the optiMEAS team is constantly developing the hardware. The smartPRO for teleservice, diagnosis and monitoring is used in the automotive, energy, environmental and geological sectors.

This is followed by the smartMINI for condition-based and predictive maintenance on mobile machines and the smartRAILwith which the railway also runs a safe track. Customised microcontroller solutions round off the programme.

In parallel, software for intelligent data evaluation is being developed in the cloud. Thanks to the modular app concept, individual applications can be created quickly and cost-effectively>. The staff grows and the vehicle fleet is completed by the company's own test motorbike for CAN data.

optiMEAS drives industrial digitization as a pioneer

Designed for growth and digital trends, the optiMEAS In 2017, the company entered into a strategic partnership with BEKO TECHNOLOGIES from Neuss as a new co-partner. The joint potential is bearing fruit in digitalisation solutions and strategic planning, among other things.

Smart filter monitoring, remote maintenance of concrete pumps or operational optimisation of plants are just a few of the many application examples which optiMEAS has successfully implemented. Via the configurable 'dashboard' with comprehensive visualisation and analysis function in connection with a smart device, all operating data of machines can be monitored live on any PC or mobile phone. A well-founded data evaluation with alarm and recommended action serves as a decision-making basis for predictive maintenance.

2018 the subsidiary optiMEAS Software Solutions GmbH was founded. It is dedicated to the development and distribution of the optiMEAS IoT Platform optiCLOUD ? the intelligent control room for gaining insights from real-time and high-resolution data. 2019 will see the emergence of new developments such as the smartI/O series, measuring amplifier for direct sensor connection, and smartCORE, a patented, modular software for use in (Industrial) IoT solutions.

Digitisation is gaining in importance worldwide: The Corona Year 2020

For many, home office is becoming the new everyday working life. Good networking guarantees that people remain connected and able to act remotely even in a state of emergency. Communication via video also ensures quick, visual accessibility; travel distances and costs are saved. optiMEAS this switch succeeds effortlessly.

SMEs are recognising the potential of digital machine data and are increasingly asking optiMEAS solutions. In the anniversary year, the new catalogue on products, solutions and corporate values is published.

With heart also in Switzerland

The second Corona year is also challenging in many ways. Supply bottlenecks, long waiting times and price increases on the procurement market also gets optiMEAS to be felt. On the other hand, new perspectives are emerging with the founding of the in Switzerland and the associated expansion of the sales infrastructure. In addition, new modules and designs are being created that further optimise our solutions.

But above all, one point crystallises clearly in a holistic view of this time: business with heart, especially equality, is and will be more important than ever - a true togetherness as a bridge for a tense and divided society.
