System Upgrade, Migration

If your control system is old, it may be time to upgrade. It is time to consider proactive planning to upgrade to modern and readily available controls, before a catastrophic failure leaves you with lost production time and repair or replacement costs of the older equipment.

We can convert older programs to newer platforms.

The availability of components, costs related to maintenance and downtime, and the functionality that modern technologies can add to your control system are convincing factors to upgrade.

Sometimes staged upgrades are possible. For example, you can upgrade the PLC first, and then the HMI. Or, in the case of large amounts of I/O, the CPU could be replaced with a gateway to a more modern CPU. The solutions depend on the brands of hardware you have.
