The Automation Award

Every October you can vote as reader
From mid-October the voting for the Automation Award will start online here on – and our readers can vote for their favorites and thus determine the two winners of the Automation Award.
Note: The Automation Award will also be presented in 2020 – only the voting by voting card at the SPS trade show in Nuremberg can't take place because due to the Corona pandemic the SPS is in 2020 only a virtual trade show.

Electrical automation and digitalization equally in focus: From 2020, the Automation Award will be presented in two categories:

  • TECHNOLOGY (Solution Offers):
    By this we mean the components and system solutions of the suppliers of automation technology, which are recently also summarized under the term Operational Technology (OT). With control technology as well as actuators and sensors, automation technology lays the foundation for the implementation of digitalization – meaning Industry 4.0 and the Smart Factory.
  • DIGITALIZATION (Digitalization Scenarios):
    Machine Learning or Artificial Intelligence (AI) are only two of the areas with which manufacturing processes can be made much more efficient and, last but not least, more resource-saving today. The aim here is to award a prize to a practical application that demonstrates how the advantages of digitalization can be used efficiently.

In retrospect, the development of fieldbuses and, based on this, of Industrial Ethernet communication solutions alone clearly shows the dynamics of electrical automation technology. From the very beginning, the aim of the Automation Award, which is awarded annually by elektro AUTOMATION and from the Konradin Media Group, was therefore to honor particularly innovative products and increasingly solution offerings. With the digitalization scenarios, we also want to honor topics such as Industry 4.0, Smart Factory and digitalization in the future – because not least in view of the challenges posed by climate change, automation and digitalization are to be seen as the key to mastering the future.

How to take part in the vote:

Every reader can vote twice, once for the category

  • TECHNOLOGY (Solution Offers) and the category
  • DIGITALIZATION (Digitalization Scenarios).

The jury will nominate three candidates for each category in advance.

In order to avoid multiple voting and undesired influence on the result as far as possible, the e-mail address of your own company is required for voting. Voting with private e-mail addresses or obviously false e-mail addresses is excluded from participation in the vote.

Optional – your chance to win personal

In addition to the Automation Award voting, you also have the opportunity to win personally. Among all participants we raffle the following prizes:

  • 1st prize: Xbox One S game console
  • 2nd to 5th prize: A subscription for one year of 'bild der wissenschaft' from the Konradin Media Group.

By the way: You can also register for our information offers in connection with the voting for the Automation Award.
