When doing a control system migration project, we also like to discuss with customers the benefits of modernizing your system to reap more benefits. A modernization project will allow plants to gain:

  • Global Data Access
  • Increased Network Security and Safety
  • Lower Error Margins
  • run with better efficiency and productivity.
  • Flexibility

For plants that are some ways off from a migration or modernization project, we offer legacy system migration planning and consulting. We can work with you to create a timeline for your outdated control system.

We start by gathering all the components of your system and identifying which parts are still supported and which are unsupported. After this, we will discuss what new features you would like to see in a new control system then help pick out new system components.

We also offer legacy system support agreements for manufacturers who are worried they might experience an unplanned downtime event. With a support agreement, we will have current backups of your system to guarantee a quick response time for restoring your legacy system and getting things back up and running.
