One of the greatest challenges of a legacy conversion is simply starting the project. Upgrading your PLCs and HMI retrofit systems sooner rather than later avoids the risk of pricey patchwork rescue missions when a system fails and avoids the hassle of locating replacement parts that are no longer available.
Is it time to upgrade your industrial control system?
Does your older legacy industrial control system routinely cause unplanned downtime due to system glitches and malfunctions?
Is obsolescence making it harder and harder to purchase replacement parts?
Are your repair expenses significantly eating into your profit margins?
Would you like to economically extend the life of your capital equipment?
If the answer to any of those questions is yes, then it’s time to upgrade your aging production equipment by integrating new PLCs and HMI retrofits into your control and automation system.
What are the steps of a PLC and HMI systems upgrade?
Before we get started, our primary focus is to gain a complete understanding of your current system. We conduct a full system assessment and specification phase, which allows us to plan ahead and avoid problems and delays during your PLC and HMI retrofit upgrade. Our goal is to minimize downtime while maximizing your process improvements.
