PLC and HMI Retrofit Systems

Connell Industries is an experienced controls systems integrator. We’ve performed hundreds of PLC/HMI retrofits and upgrades and are an authorized integrator for Rockwell Automation/Allen-Bradley.

This gives us the ability to upgrade nearly any old or obsolete controls system to the latest version.

PLC Upgrade and Conversion Services

One of the greatest challenges of a legacy conversion is simply starting the project. Upgrading your PLC’s sooner 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. As Connell Industries modernizes your system, you’ll experience little to no downtime.

The benefits of upgrading your PLC and HMI Systems

  • Greater reliability
  • Integration with modern MES and ERP systems
  • Improved processes
  • Easier system maintenance, modification, and expansion
  • Improved access to service and replacement parts

When you become a Connell Industries customer, we focus on gaining 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 the upgrade. Our intent is to minimize downtime while maximizing process improvements.

The major steps of a PLC and HMI systems upgrade:

  • Legacy system reverse engineering
  • System design and planning
  • Electrical design
  • Hardware selection and budgeting
  • Extensive testing and validation
  • Training and support

If you’re not sure if it’s time to upgrade your industrial controls system, answer the following questions:

  1. Does your older legacy industrial controls system routinely cause unplanned downtime due to system glitches and malfunctions?
  2. Is obsolescence making it harder and harder to purchase replacement parts?
  3. Are your repair expenses significantly eating into your profit margins?
  4. Would you like to economically extend the life of your capital equipment?

If the answer to any of these questions is yes, then it’s time to call Connell Industries to help you integrate a new PLC and/or HMI controls system to upgrade your aging production equipment.
