Automation Solutions to Improve Your Plant’s Efficiency

Using readily available off-the-shelf components and software, we create custom control 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, control panel design, PLC programming, HMI/SCADA programming, control panel fabrication, commissioning, and service of your system.

CONTROL SYSTEM INTEGRATION

Control system integration is Vertech’s original core business of providing machine and process automation on the plant floor. We deliver turnkey automation solutions for our clients leveraging our team’s skill set which includes system level design (network design, sequence of operations, P&IDs, etc.), control panel design, PLC/HMI/SCADA programming, control panel building, and commissioning services.

Vertech’s trained and experienced automation group understands that successful control system projects require a team approach. We begin our engagement with you seeking to understand and define your process and business objectives. We do the heavy lifting to create a Sequence of Operation document to ensure we understand your expectations. Our team works with you througout the development process through a series of interactive workshops to review functionality, HMI screen design, and to coordinate commissioning and startup. Our methodical approach keeps your team involved and informed throughout the process.

LEGACY SYSTEM UGPRADES

All good things come to an end. Sooner or later a system upgrade becomes a necessity, usually due to hardware or software obsolescence. Upgrades can and should have an ROI though, and they don’t have to just be thought of as a necessary evil. Today’s technology is amazingly advanced compared to the 1990s or even the 2000s. A new system using modern hardware and software will be more secure, will seamlessly connect to your business systems, and can even provide increased productivity and employee engagement through the use of mobile technology.

Vertech is experienced in transforming obsolete control systems into modern technology platforms with wide open opportunity for system improvements. Don’t get caught waiting too long! Some parts are often unavailable for out of date industrial control systems, and the excessive downtime created if and when the system goes down can be fiscally disastrous. We know that clipboard has served you well, but wait till you try an iPad!

UL 508A PANEL BUILDING

Vertech’s 10,000 square foot panel shop offers unmatched quality (seriously – you should come look) and competitive pricing. We fabricate industrial control panels for our turn-key projects as well as build-to-print panels for OEMs. Our facility can handle all sizes of panels including large multi-door panels, and we frequently provide custom metal fabrication for unique situations. To ensure quality, we run every panel through a 42 point quality check prior to crating and shipping.

Our shop maintains the following certifications from UL:

  • UL 508a – Industrial control panels
  • UL 698a – Intrinsically safe
  • UL 1203 – Explosion proof

ELECTRICAL DESIGN

Control panel design is an essential component of any industrial automation project. Vertech’s designers use AutoCAD Electrical to deliver information-rich, professional drawing packages for control panels, MCPs, and more. In addition to electrical design, our design team creates P&IDs, network diagrams, conveyor layout drawings, and other industry-specific process drawings.

For clients with older facilities, we provide on-site documentation services. Our designers work together with field technicians to discover and document existing wiring both internal to control cabinets and field wiring. This is essential prior to a system upgrade or facility expansion.

PE stamping is available in Arizona for drawings up to 480VAC.
