Our Services

Industrial Control System Design and Integration

Industrial Control System Design and Integration

Using readily available off-the-shelf components and software, we design custom systems to meet the unique needs of your automation project. Our systems are developed using industry standard PLC and HMI/SCADA products to maximize the long term return on your investment. Our systems incorporate network design, PLC panel design, PLC programming, HMI/SCADA programming, control panel fabrication, commissioning, and service of your system.

Systems Upgrade and Migration

Systems Upgrade and Migration

Unfortunately most automation systems only last 15-20 years. Fortunately, our team is experienced in the unique technical and logistical challenges of a control system upgrade. Our project experience will minimize the risk to your current operations, and our industry knowledge can help you take full advantage of new technology to bring additional value to your system, not just put lipstick on a pig.

Well Field SCADA with Ignition 8.0 and Perspective

In the oil and gas industry, data collection occurs across many devices which can be miles apart. With such a large geographical area, receiving real time data and alerts is imperative. Collecting data from geographically distributed assets is challenging, but well fields that have been built out over years pose additional challenges to data collection with control systems from different manufacturers and eras. This case study looks at the development of an enterprise SCADA system using Ignition 8.0 and the Perspective module to centralize data from well-field assets.

Trying to "Catch Them All" Using Unit Testing

Unit testing has long been the standard practice in the world of software development and it’s easy to see why.  Unit testing is the practice where individual ‘Units’ of code are tested to make sure they act as suspected.  With the ever-evolving world of software and constant updates being made to most software products it is more important than ever to be able to test specific ‘Units’ of the code to make sure that recent updates did not have adverse effects on other portions of the code.

Essential MES Tool #3: Data Entry Automation

In the previous two blogs in this nine-part series, we’ve discussed some of the high-level manufacturing execution system (MES) tools for better understanding productivity problems – overall equipment effectiveness (OEE) and downtime tracking. Both of these MES tools generate a lot of data, which brings up the next important question when it comes to implementing MES solutions in your organization – how do you handle this excess of information?
