Automation Implementation

Panel Fabrication

We can design, build, pre-test, and deliver any panel from small J-boxes to multi-door enclosures. We can build industrial enclosures from our designs or from yours.

 

All enclosures are checked out electrically and tested programmatically as much as possible in order to ensure that your automation solution is delivered to you ready for installation. We can certify your control panel to UL508 standards.

PLC, HMI, and PC Programming

Our PLC (programmable logic controller), HMI (human-machine interface), and PC programming experience is extensive. We can support (but not exclusive to) the following automation manufacturers and products:

 

  • Bradley PLC products (PLC2, PLC5, Micrologix, SLC, CompactLogix, Controllogix)
  • Allen Bradley HMI products (Panelview 1400 to Plus, RSView, FactoryTalk View ME/SE)
  • All Automation Direct PLCs and HMIs
  • Siemens products (300 and 400 series, 1200 and 1500 series, Step 7, TIA Portal, WinCC)
  • Labview, Teststand, and other NI products

Electrical Installation, Electrical Check Out, and Automation Start Up

After building, we can deliver and install most enclosures. We provide both installation and engineering services to ensure that the automation solution that you purchased will be installed in compliance with local and national codes and in a timely fashion.

Documentation and Training

No automation solution is complete without documentation and training. As a rule, our systems are designed to be as intuitive to use as possible. Also, if things do need attention, alarm messages are provide that can direct the operator in how to correct any problem. Written and electronic operator manuals, parts manuals, documented programs, and electrical CAD drawings are always provided at the end of the project. Finally, if your operators need training at your job site, we can provide that also.
