History

SMAR is a Brazilian brand, created on April 1, 1974, controlled by the company Nova Smar S/A, based in the municipality of Sertãozinho, state of São Paulo, currently positioned as a Technology Company, specialized in providing solutions for the control and automation of industrial processes, attentive and closely following the rapid advance of digital technologies, which have caused the emergence of innovative, differentiated and even disruptive resources, many of them interesting, applicable and that can be associated with automation solutions.

SMAR develops, manufactures and sells instruments, controllers, hardware and software for measuring, controlling, operating and managing maintenance assets. Provides Design, Factory Acceptance Testing, Field Acceptance Testing, Field Integration Testing, Commissioning, Start-up and Technical Assistance services.

Initially, SMAR became known as a provider of field services in steam turbines in the Brazilian sugar industry. With the beginning of its Research and Development activities, it launched electronic regulators on the market as part of a new control system for dosing the amount of sugar cane in the mill feeders. When starting with the project of a new line of instruments for process control, it expanded its installed park to the other segments of the industry. This initiative made the brand grow in the national market and already aiming to expand to the international market. In the 1990s, investment in the development of a new product line took the brand to a new market level, that of a provider of solutions in process control systems for industrial plants. With the experience gained in the development of a DCS (Distributed Control Digital System) it started to create the PLC (Programmable Logic Controller) and carried out the creation of products using the concepts of an advanced and disruptive digital technology for process control, the Fieldbus Foundation, whose efforts earned the brand the nickname “First in Fieldbus”. And to this portfolio of solutions, over the years, other emerging technologies have been added, such as Profibus and WirelessHART™.

Uma nova janela de oportunidade está se abrindo para a marca SMAR nesta década de 2020 com o O-PAS™ (Open Process Automation Standard), um “padrão dos padrões” para definir uma arquitetura de referência neutra em relação ao fornecedor, destinada à construção de sistemas de automação de processo escaláveis, confiáveis, interoperáveis e seguros, que vem ganhando a adesão dos mais importantes usuários mundiais. Por este cenário a solução SMAR está sendo novamente a protagonista do mercado, pois foi concebida embutindo os conceitos de arquitetura e as características que fazem parte deste padrão, diferentemente das soluções que estão disponíveis nos demais provedores do mercado mundial.
