Connection of machines and IT systems made easy

The challenges of digitisation

Driver of innovation

 - Germany is one of the strongest industrial locations in the world. This position is secured by decades of expertise. As a result of increasing digitalization, world market leaders must also optimize their processes in order to remain competitive in the future.

Lost in Translation

 - digital communication between systems is still a major challenge. The large number of incompatible industrial interfaces prevents data flow between manufacturers. Digital communication with old systems and other systems such as databases also remains unresolved.

Our solution

Connecting of all areas

 - we offer you an intelligent adapter that enables you to network machines and systems with incompatible interfaces.

Plug & Play

 - the universal translator consists of a cost-effective combination of plug & play integrable hardware with configuration software that makes programming knowledge superfluous.

Safety and security

 - based on current technologies of software development, semasquare offers the possibility to ensure IT security also in the environment of Industry 4.0 and IoT.


 - the implementation and integration of industry 4.0 applications will be facilitated for companies in order to be able to offer new innovative products and services.


Prof. Dr. Friedbert Pautzke

Head of the Institute for Electromobility
Bochum University of Applied Sciences

Industry 4.0 is a focused innovation and research topic for the Department of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science at Bochum University of Applied Sciences. Especially after the end of mining in the Ruhr area, this is where the future of the region lies. As a professor and experienced founder, I am therefore happy to support the team as a mentor.

innolectric AG

The innovative products of innolectric AG are always integrated into customer systems. Standardized communication carriers and protocols are indispensable. However, the number of specialized communication channels - also in the course of the IoT - is increasing dynamically. Harmonizing complexity and multilayeredness always involves a great deal of effort. A product that relieves us of this effort "out-of-the-box" would be a great added value in every respect.

About us


 - we are a group of electrical engineers and computer scientists with many years of experience in software development in the fields of mechanical/plant engineering and the Internet of Things.


 - we have often had to master the challenges of networking machines and systems ourselves. We are driven by the desire to make this easier and to advance digitisation.

Ruhrvalley & Bochum

 - with our location in the heart of the Ruhr area, we know how important it is to adapt to the constantly changing demands of business life. With the research focus Industry 4.0, Bochum University of Applied Sciences offers a suitable environment for this.
