Electronics technicians for automation technology analyze functional correlations and process sequences of automated systems and design modifications or expansions. They install and adjust electrical, hydraulic or pneumatic drive systems and install measurement, control and regulation equipment. In the process, they assemble, configure, program and adjust sensor systems, operating systems, bus systems and networks. They connect the installed components to complex automation equipment, which they integrate into an overall system. After test runs, they hand over the systems and instruct the future operators on how to use them. In addition, electronics technicians for automation technology monitor and maintain automation systems. With the help of test software and diagnostic systems, they locate, analyze and eliminate faults.
