General smart features
Shop optimized for all devices
The shop has been optimized for all devices from PC to tablet to smartphones. As a result, it gives you the most convenient shopping experience – whether in the office or on the road.
At Automation24 there are no complicated price and discount agreements. All prices are equally valid for each customer and appear without previous login, directly on the product page. This way, you can easily see your savings off of the manufacturer list price.
Thanks to product icons for each category, the navigation is intuitive to use. You can open the menu items either by hovering your mouse over them, or by clicking directly on the categories to see the overview of the associated subcategories.
Practical manufacturer pages
At the bottom of each shop page is our handy brand slider, which provides you an overview of our manufacturers.
With a click on the logo of your choice, you can go directly to the manufacturer page. In addition to further information, here you can also find an overview of the product categories of the respective manufacturer. Simply click on one of the categories to go directly to the corresponding products of the manufacturer.
The error-tolerant search, the direct order feature from the basket, as well as the search for products with similar technical characteristics lead quickly and accurately to the right product.
Enter your search terms at the top of the page in the search box and we will make suggestions via the drop-down menu about your request. The suggestions are divided into up to three types: Category, product and manufacturer pages. Just click on the suggestion that suits you to be directed to the corresponding page.
Our intelligent search also accounts for small typing mistakes to ensure you reach your goal.
Fast direct order feature
If you are already in the shopping basket and you think of additional items that you would like to add quickly, you do not have to take time to navigate back through the categories. Simply use the direct order function from the basket. After entering the category or product name, a drop-down menu with suitable product suggestions will open for your input.
Product comparison feature to help with the purchasing decision
With the help of the product comparison feature, you can see the differences in any number of items at a glance. Simply click the check box at the category level of the desired items, and then click on Product Comparison.
Filter functions for fast product identification
In the search for the right product, we also support our detailed technical feature filter function with which you can select according to manufacturers, price ranges and technical specifications such as design, installation method, voltage type and much more. Depending on the subcategory you are in, you will be presented with relevant filter options.
Comparison of products with similar technical characteristics
The technical feature filter can also effortlessly be used for products with similar technical characteristics to find and compare them together. In the checkbox, select the characteristics for which you want to see more products, and click on the button "Search for similar items". It then opens an overview of products with your previously selected characteristics.
Recommendation of suitable product accessories
For each sensor, you need the appropriate sensor cable and for each controller the appropriate expansion module. With us, you do not have to search long for the right accessories. On each product detail page we suggest the appropriate products for you.
Comprehensive product documentation
For each product you will find comprehensive product information in the form of short facts, clearly listed technical data, and product descriptions. If you need more information, you can also download datasheets, declarations of conformity and CAD data from the product page.
Real-time product availability indicator
