Our capabilities span individual machine controls to large network manufacturing controls systems with MES interface. Our control system engineering team is responsible for designing, developing, installing, and maintaining systems which are used to control and monitor automation machinery. ABCO control systems engineers will analyze a project’s requirements as well as the mechanical design of the machine in order to create a controls system that will function in the desired manner.
Our team of controls engineers, technicians, and designers are well-rounded with all major controls suppliers, including Allen-Bradley, Siemens, and Beckhoff to name a few. ABCO is a recognized Systems Integrator for Rockwell Automation. We are also experienced with many other systems such as Fanuc, Cognex, Wonderware, and Kuka. See a complete list of partners below.
The ABCO controls team develops quality design packages for controls and systems integration. Our process includes:
As part of the design process, we will perform safety and/or hazard analyses, security analyses, and regulatory compliance assessments by identifying key issues and risks in order to comply with the applicable standards, policies, and regulations of each client. All system design documentation includes control panel layouts, bills of material, electrical schematics, detailed functional control specifications, operations manuals, and all source code.
Our processes for development and programming of controls systems include:
ABCO’s control system engineering team provides extensive client support during testing and debugging of the systems and on-site support for start-up and training. Read more about field support.
Panel construction takes place in ABCO’s UL Certified Panel Shop and performed under the supervision of licensed electricians. Read more about our panel building capabilities.
