Simplicity and compatibility – essential to device integration

Simplicity and compatibility are essential to making a user’s daily work, from instrument adjustment to instrument integration, much easier. In this company, the motto ‘All for one and one for all’ has resulted in providing simple, stable and cost-effective life cycle management. For every type of instrument, regardless of its version, there is exactly one Device Type Manager (DTM) that is totally compatible both upwards and downwards.


Take note


  • In many cases the best solutions are the most simple.
  • It should not be necessary to install a new Device Type Manager (DTM) for each piece of new hardware in a product series.
  • It is possible to obtain a DTM that is both upward and downward compatible.
