High Availability

The M1 automation system perfectly combines the openness of a PC-based controller with the reliability of industrial hardware platforms. Designed for the harshest environmental conditions, it guarantees fault-free operation and can be used in an ambient temperature between -40°C and 70°C  without a fan.


Hardware Availability

The yield and economic efficiency of production plants and machines is largely defined by availability. As the heart of the plant, the controller system is integral to stability, robustness and availability. The M1 automation system was designed and developed precisely for this purpose. Specially selected, industrial components, and the highest quality of product development and manufacturing guarantee smooth, fault-free operation, reflected by customer-confirmed availability of 99.96 %.



The M1's ColdClimate modules excel in extreme environmental conditions - withstanding condensation and temperatures from -40°C to 70°C. ColdClimate module functionality matches that of standard modules, which guarantees 100 % compatibility.


48h Run-In / 100% Testing

At Bachmann, product quality is more than a commitment - it's our philosophy. All products undergo a multi-stage 100% testing process, along with a 48h run-in, ensuring resistance to environmental influences such as temperature and humidity fluctuations. With our 100% testing process, customers are guaranteed the highest level of reliability.

The robustness, availability and service lifetime of the M1 modules are already ensured during the design phase and in the first test modules. In the early stages of development, specialized Highly Accelerated Life Testing (HALT) and Highly Accelerated Stress Screening (HASS) identifies potential weaknesses, leading to improved or increased service lifetime, stability and availability.
