Consultation and site meeting

One of our engineers will call you to discuss your particular automation needs. We think that you will be impressed by their grasp of what is needed and by the fast turn-around of proposals and quotation.

You will have a single contact throughout the process from initiation through to installation, commissioning and after-sales service; a process that is simple and accountable, with clear lines of communication.

From Concept to ePlan

Control Techniques is a leading provider of motion control technology for industrial applications. Our innovative products are used in the most demanding applications requiring performance, reliability and energy efficiency. With facilities across Europe, the Americas and Asia, we can offer local technical sales, service and design expertize to customers around the world. Each has its own team of application specialists and we share ideas, practical results, software and designs - that’s a huge reservoir of experience that we can bring to bear on your particular production or automation requirement.


Our Drive Centres teams have unrivalled resources; highly qualified and experienced designers, application engineers and software specialists backed by sophisticated design tools, and, because you’re dealing with the same company that designs the AC and DC drives and servos, you can be certain that you’ll get optimum performance with each element of the drive system being perfectly matched.

Software services

Whether you want to use the onboard automation features within our variable speed drives or external devices, such as PLCs, we can provide you with the level of service you want, from providing bespoke software for your application to providing training so that you can write the software yourself.


Control Techniques' communication option modules are available for almost all fieldbus and Ethernet networks that are common in industry.

Trouble-free operation with other manufacturers' equipment

Where possible our option modules are independently certified to ensure conformance with relevant standards so that users can be sure of trouble-free operation.

High-speed deterministic control

Control Techniques' communication option modules have direct, high speed access to all drive parameters. In addition, for high performance servo networks such as SERCOS and EtherCAT, the drive control loops are synchronized with the communication system to eliminate delays and enhance performance.


The Drive Centres controls the quality right through to finished panels, with full testing of both hardware and software prior to shipment.

When you’re checking on progress, your contact can see and talk face-to-face with the fitters, the test engineers and the software specialists. You get the real story and everyone is pulling in the same direction.

Installation, commissioning and after sales support

Control Techniques engineers will install and commission your drive system and provide ongoing after sales support.
