• Controls Consulting, Design, Installation and Service
    SWFTEC has 44 years of experience in the controls industry in Dayton, Ohio U.S.A. the birthplace of aviation. We also do much more than control systems. Scan down for that.

    We can do systems using Pneumatic, Electric, Electronic, Analog and various Direct Digital technologies. Systems can use Conventional, Fuzzy Logic, Neural Net, Expert System, Model Based and/or Simulation Based control methodologies. We do high reliability design.

    In the HVAC Controls Market we have experience with systems from many vendors including:
    Johnson Controls Systems - T6000, JC80, JC85/10, JC85/40, DSC8500, Metasys (Companion, Facilitator, N30, NAE, FX series) (ASC devices, DX9100, VMA, FX series through current models, N2, BACnet, LON etc.)
    Honeywell Systems - SymmetrE, Accelon, CARE, Excel, LON tools (We have converted many CARE based systems to use Echelon iLON SmartServers)
    Trane Systems - Tracer, Tracer Summit, PCM, UPCM, MP500 series etc.
    Echelon - LON equipment including iLON SmartServers in Web applications. We sell a LON repeater. Experience using LON, Modbus and BACnet with iLON SmartServers. We have the tools to produce special applications for the Echelon iLON SmartServers.

  • Energy Management - Special demand reduction algorithms to minimize loads.

  • Computer Software
    SWFTEC has software production capabilites. We mostly use Visual Basic and Assembler for our applications. We can also do Apps for Android and Apple devices. Some of our products include:

    SWFTEC Graphic Program Generator An automatic program generator with many applications. Build programs by placing symbols on a drawing. Graphic Program Generation is also called Function Block Programming

    SWFTEC Graphic Interface System A web-browser-like graphic user interface. This program supports RS232 serial communication to any controller with an ASCII text terminal type interface. Direct support for VT100 and teletype modes. Also does http:, ftp:, TCP/IP, UDP and E-Mail under script control. Has a special scripting language which makes it easy to customize. A very powerful Graphic User Interface.

    We do special software for special applications. For example we did the X-ray Spectrometer Lab software and Furnace Terminal software for the Flowserve Foundry in Dayton.
    We have experience with writing Multitasking, Multiuser Operating Systems
    We have written a Variable Precision Floating Point Scientific Math Package.

  • Computer Models and Simulation Here is an example using our software.

  • Design equipment to work with Industry Standards
    We have electronic design and prototyping capability. We have done several designs which are compatible with Johnson Control's N2OPEN protocol.
    Most recently we solved the problem of using JCI Metasys ASC devices on a Facilitator system. We designed a module that acts as a repeater on the N2 bus but will convert the type designation to match the system it is on. So Facilitator devices can operate on a Metasys system or Metasys devices can operate on a Facilitator system.
    We have done designs for other vendors equipment such as the LON Repeater we sell.

  • Embedded Controllers
    SWFTEC can apply embedded controllers to solve your product design, interface and control problems. We also sell some ready made solutions. We can utilize a number of different processors but tend to use Microchip's PIC Processors for most applications. Some examples include: Special Application PC Mouse Controller I.C.s and the N2OPEN protocol above
    We have done special integrated circuits for the computer interfaces (joysticks) for the Bridge computers on large ships and our I.C.s are used in PC Industrial Terminals in petrochemical and pharmaceutical plants all around the world.

  • Aids for the Handicapped - Special PC Mouse Controller I.C.s

  • Hardware Design, Mechanisms, Robotics, Interface & Sensing
    We have electronic design and prototyping capability. We can also engineer and build mechanical devices and systems. This includes a wide range of things including Vehicles and Simple Robots. We have Aerospace and autononous vehicle design capabilites including guidance and control systems. We can do quick design iterations using our 3D printing capabilites.

  • Virtual Reality Modeling, 3D capture, and Stereo stuff
    SWFTEC is developing a line of products for Artificial Vision Applications including robot vision systems, vision systems for autonomous vehicles and 3D model generating cameras.
