Electrical Equipment



HORN® provides complete measurement and control equipment for the melting tank and conditioning systems. The wiring diagrammes are engineered with the newest version of EPLAN software. Based on HORN®'s extensive experience, only the most reliable and durable equipment from special suppliers, e.g. Siemens are used. All control cabinets are pre-assembled and tested in order to avoid time-consuming and faulty assembly on-site.

HORN® offers functional units for miscellaneous requirements, primarily:

  • Temperature measurement and control
  • Chimney draft measurement and control
  • Furnace pressure measurement and control
  • Glass level measurement and control
  • Quantity measurement and control
  • Process PLC control unit
  • Independent safety PLC to meet highest safety standards
  • MCC (Motor Control Cabinet) and power cabinets (e.g. oil preheater, boosting system)
  • SCADA - Computer supervisory system
  • UPS – Power unit
  • Furnace TV Camera


For the controlling of the complex technological glass melting process, HORN® has developed a four-level operational concept:

  • Process supervision and visualisation
  • PLC - levels with independent operating units
  • Back-up hardware levels
  • Manual/field operation level


The aim is to display technical parameters in the clearest, most user-friendly way and at the same time achieve the highest possible safety level. Moreover, the control system determines the financial feasibility of the plant and the quality of the glass produced. For this reason, HORN® provides ultramodern control equipment and visualisation software to supervise and optimise the glass melting process.
