Description of the skill category

Discrete automation includes mechanical devices, e.g. hydraulics and pneumatics as well as electrical technology/electronics. The professions of the field require competence in mechanical engineering and production technology as well as competence in electrical engineering and automation technology

Automation assemblers usually work in manufacturing, process or property automation jobs as well as in automation applications of the new generation, among other IoT (Internet of Things). Their work includes installation, control, maintenance and commissioning tasks. They have to be familiar with the products of several different manufacturers of equipment, components and control systems and know how to install, connect, use and program them. These include e.g. programmable logics, settable and parametrizable sensors, machine vision sensors, touch-sensitive screens, industry robots, frequency transformers, pneumatic components, devices related to machine safety as well as different installation equipment.

The competition is a pair competition.
