Industrial controls automation is the use of control systems, predominately microprocessor based, to control industrial machinery and processes. Automation has and will continue to play an increasingly important role in the manufacturing and process control environments.
A programmable logic controller (PLC), is an industrial digital microprocessor that has been ruggedized and adapted for the control of manufacturing processes, such as assembly lines, or robotic devices, or any activity that requires high reliability control, ease of programming and process fault diagnosis.
A programmable automation controller (PAC) can be described as a hybrid between a PC and a PLC in that it typically offers the benefits of both in a single package. A PAC tends to provide greater flexibility in programming, larger memory capacity, better interoperability, and more features and functions in general than a standalone PLC.
Supervisory control and data acquisition (SCADA) is a control system architecture that uses computers, networked data communications and graphical user interfaces for high-level process supervisory management, but uses other peripheral devices such as programmable logic controllers and discrete PID controllers to interface to the process plant or machinery. The operator through the HMI can monitor the system and issue commands vital to maintaining the overall process.
A human-machine interface (HMI) is the user interface that connects an operator to the controller for an industrial system. An HMI includes electronic components for signaling and controlling automation systems. Through the HMI, an operator can see schematics of the systems and turn switches and pumps on or off, for example, or raise or lower temperatures. HMIs are usually deployed on Windows-based machines, communicating with programmable logic controllers (PLC) and other industrial controllers.
Connell Industries serves a wide variety of industries such as plastics, packaging, pharma, food and beverage, utilities, heavy movable bridges and other infrastructure. Since we are experienced in a wide range of applications we can design an automated solution that meets your standards for performance, quality and price, no matter what.
Systems and Control Engineers are the people who analyze, optimize, control, and design complex systems primarily in a manufacturing or process control environment. Systems and control engineers study and then implement the integration and coordination of all the component subsystems such as PLC’s, HMI’s, remote I/O, network switches, etc. Systems and Control Engineers are trained in the skills and tools that bring together the efforts of several engineering fields, to make things work efficiently and in confluence with each other.
We offer integration services and turn-key solutions for process automation, factory automation, information technology, control panel assembly. Additionally, we also sell PET Hot Fill Testers, PET Hot Fill Spray Tanks, and energy efficient aftermarket equipment for PET blow molding machines.
  • The professional expertise to properly apply proven technology to all customer applications.
  • In depth process application experience in a wide variety of industries.
  • Having the skills necessary to streamline businesses and work processes from the plant floor to the front office.
ROI varies widely from system to system but usually when customers update their aging legacy control systems they will see an immediate improvement in reduced downtime, better quality, and higher yields. Another important benefit is a reduction in power consumption when incorporating new VFD’s, soft starters, and energy efficient motors into their systems.
Connell Industries has prices that are generally lower than the competition, but an even greater value is obtained through our ability to provide full-turnkey solutions, meticulous design, detailed planning and offering proven, reliable technology that is both scaleable and future proofed.
