Welcome to Innovatic - the efficient alternative.


 
 


Innovatic is a Danish company, which is primary dealing with electronic product development and process control for example for feed mills, heat-and-power plants etc. The company was founded March 1. 1989 by Elec.Eng., B.Sc. Carsten Kanstrup and is a member of Silkeborg Valley, which is a collaboration between IT companies in the Silkeborg area (middle of Jutland). We therefore have a big network ready to help you even with jobs where we are not the expert.


 
  Efficiency Matters

Look at the engineering masterpieces of the nature - our bones - a snail shell - all build to obtain the maximum strength and function with a minimum of resources. At the same time it is constructions, which are very difficult to improve.

What also characterize the nature is that everything is created to be part of a perfect symbiosis, where the total use of resources is as small as possible, but where the result of the interaction between cells and individuals is a level of function, intelligence, reliability and failure tolerance, which by far exceeds the modern technology.

"Nature never does anything without a reason."
Aristotle.

It is the same goals that we strive for in all our products and system solutions. A typical Innovatic construction is:

  • Simple and often very untraditional.
  • Extremely efficient.
  • Perfect in its function.
  • Unusual reliable.
  • More failure tolerant than most other constructions.
  • Optimized for the best and cheapest total solution.


 
 

We have the attitude that there are very often two solutions to a problem:

  1. The "safe", but complicated, clumsy and expensive standard way, which often only takes its own problems into consideration. This solution has a tendency of breaking down under its own weight like the modern PC world with its very low efficiency and endless row of safety holes and bugs, which nobody has the overview to fix.

  2. The simple and elegant way, which totally seen solves the problem with a minimum of resources and production costs, but at the same time with a higher level of function and safety.

Nobody has ever been blaimed for choosing method 1 although it may be almost impossible to earn money that way, but as an inventor company we are not satisfied before we have found method 2. We do not compromise on the level of function, but other things being equal, small, simple systems have less errors, higher reliability and lower cost than big, complex systems so the keyword for Innovatic is efficiency - as in the nature.

What characterizes the really innovative product is that it is genius in its simplicity, perfect in its function and enables the optimized total solution.

"Any intelligent fool can make things bigger, more complex, and more violent.
It takes a touch of genius - and a lot of courage - to move in the opposite direction."

E. F. Schumaker.

"Everything should be made as simple as possible, but not simpler."
Albert Einstein.

"Perfection is achieved, not when there is nothing more to add, but when there is nothing left to take away."
Antoine de Saint-Exupéry.

Do you want an efficient solution and are you not afraid of stepping out of the footsteps of others, maybe Innovatic is the alternative you are looking for.

"The one, who follow in the footsteps of others, will never get in front and will not see the paths on its way."
Indian proverb.

As an example, we invented a new electronic measuring principle for a safe grounding system for a client. This increased the measuring accuracy from approximately 50 % for their own prototypes to the required 5 %, and it simultaneously reduced the number of components and the cost price approximately a factor 2 and removed the necessity for trimming. The result has become their best selling product for the last 13 years! This would not have been possible without the simple, innovative solutions of Innovatic.

Another example is our new fieldbus Max-i, which may be regarded as a combination between a 12-14 V supply and a highly improved CAN bus. With the use of standard installation cables and the possibility for an entire fieldbus interface in one IC, it enables the lowest total automation costs ever seen and may even be used as a supplementary 12-14 V net in the house of the future where it may be used for example for battery chargers, alarm systems, energy management and intelligent LED lighting.
