More Info on Contemporary Control Systems


With more than 48 years of experience, Contemporary Controls is a leader in innovative solutions for industrial automation. Contemporary Controls’ customers are systems integrators, contractors and OEMs seeking simple, reliable networking and control products from a dependable source. Designed for unattended operation in environments not conducive to office-grade equipment, Contemporary Controls’ products provide convenient DIN-rail mounting in control panels, 24VAC/DC power, UL 508 and improved EMC compliance.

Contemporary Controls’ Skorpion series of IP routers ease the integration of new machines into the existing network. Each machine consisting of multiple IP devices connects to the LAN-side while keeping the same IP settings for the devices and the application, lowering installation cost and eliminating troubleshooting. VPN models of the routers can provide secure remote access with the use of the RemoteVPN service from Contemporary Controls. Cellular routers with available data plans for hassle-free device activation provide quick and easy commissioning of the devices on the remote jobsite.

A virtual private network (VPN) can provide secure access to remote job sites while giving systems integrators the flexibility to maintain systems from an offsite location. Contemporary Controls offers three VPN solutions to meet your remote access needs.

Unmanaged switches provide a cost-effective method for expanding Ethernet networks. For troubleshooting, diagnostic switches allow a network sniffer to attach to an unused port on a switch and observe all traffic on the network.

Contemporary Controls is headquartered in the US, with wholly owned operations in the UK, Germany and China, and self-manufacturing in the US and China. With over 48 years in business, four locations around the world serving the Americas, EMEA and APAC, and a reputation for service and technical support, Contemporary Controls is committed to making your automation projects successful.
