Instrumentation & Controls Capabilities
PLC UPGRADES AND RETROFITS
Programmable Logic Controllers (PLC) are essential pieces of equipment that run many of our plants today. Many of these systems are becoming outdated and obsolete and it’s becoming harder and harder to find spare and replacement parts for them. We can upgrade your control system to newer more efficient technology, or we can provide retrofit solutions to work with elements that need to stay in place.
INSTRUMENTATION RETROFIT AND DESIGN
Your control systems are only as good as the data that they are receiving. They depend on accurate data to respond properly and efficiently. Instrumentation failures can lead to unnecessary downtime and troubleshooting issues. As your equipment ages, it becomes critical to upgrade and retrofit your instrumentation with efficient, accurate devices. We can perform the necessary evaluations to design needs for your unique situation.
STARTUP AND COMMISSIONING
We will be with you through the finish line and assist in all startup and commissioning services to make sure your system performs to specification. This includes onsite I/O checkout, Commissioning Plan development, and functional testing of new and existing equipment.
PLC MIGRATION AND INTEGRATION
One way to extend the life of legacy systems that you are not ready to retire and to continuously increase your system’s efficiency is through better PLCs. We have experience with a wide range of PLC manufacturers and platforms and can assist in evaluating which platform will best fit your application whether you want to keep your current vendor or branch out to evaluate different solutions.
STUDIES AND EVALUATIONS
The first step for many projects is to evaluate them thoroughly to understand all aspects of the issues that are driving the need for the project and the options that are available to correct it. We can provide detailed studies and evaluations to investigate all aspects of your system. We know the appropriate regulations and codes for your industry and can complete the studies you need to help keep your business running efficiently.
