Thinking of upgrading your hardware? We can upgrade you existing outdated hardware to a more modern automation system. We can design a system to replace your old relay logic wiring or old PLC with a new PLC or servo system. We can take your old pushbutton control panels and replace them with touch screen or mouse/keyboard HMIs. Upgrading hardware can reduce down time by reducing the number independent devices that can fail. Upgrading hardware also introduces newer technology with more troubleshooting and diagnostic capabilities.
