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.

SCADA Software or Industrial Data Platform?

For decades now, SCADA software has been an indispensable monitoring, control, and diagnostic tool for plant operators. SCADA software has almost entirely replaced mimic panels, push-button stations, circular chart recorders, and the like, and most plants would not operate for long without it. As the evolution continues, modern SCADA platforms are uniquely positioned to transition beyond the plant floor to center stage as the Industrial Data Platform for digital manufacturing enterprises.

Siemens Automation Summit 2018

Another Siemens Automation Summit is in the books, and it was a great one this year! Digitalization, connectivity, and security were the hot topics. Vertech was one of over 60 presenters with Calvin Hamus presenting “Extending WinCC OA with Web Technology.” The Tech Café presented Siemens product offerings like the TIA product family and MindSphere IIOT offering along with partner solutions from companies like Seeq (data analytics) and Claroty (ICS cyber security). Siemens provided great networking opportunities as well like the welcome reception sponsored by Siemens Solution Partners and the pirate-themed customer appreciation event on Wednesday evening.

Getting Started with Siemens MindSphere IIOT Platform

Siemens MindSphere is a cutting edge industrial Platform as a Service (PaaS) product that takes a lot of the work out of building and deploying IIOT applications. Siemens bills MindSphere as "the cloud-based, open IoT operating system from Siemens that connects your products, plants, systems, and machines, enabling you to harness the wealth of data generated by the Internet of Things (IoT) with advanced analytics." Vertech recently became a MindSphere Solution Partner, and here are a few beginners tips our developers learned as they got started using the platform.
