DATA ACQUISITION & RECIPE DOWNLOAD can be designed and utilized by Solutions Engineering in aspects of automation and integration to collect data and minimize operations complexity. Data Acquisition collects real time data and historical data to monitor production processes and use process feedback and analysis to improve production efficiency, product quality, provide reporting and help reduce down time. Recipe Download can optimize procedures, processes, speed production, increase product quality and consistency while increasing operational safety.

Remote Access to PLC for Remote Monitoring & Program Modification:

As a very desirable service, Solutions Engineering can establish remote Ethernet, or other communication protocols, access to the control system PLC-MCC-HMI in order to allow a programmer/engineer to be physically at the plant. A simple telephone call or email from our customer operator or manager and Solutions Engineering can be online with the control system and simultaneously work with operations to monitor and/or modify the control system program and work out issues that may occur, 24/7. This extremely desirable option has been utilized by our customers for convenience and cost reduction. When you compare a four (4) hour minimum and travel expenses charge for a programming technician to travel to and be at the jobsite in order to go online with a control system for monitoring and/or program modifications versus a one (1) hour minimum charge for a programming technician utilizing remote online communication access to do the same tasks, it's easy to see how quickly the savings add up.
Let Solutions Engineering show you how we can make your process faster and more reliable through our expertise in automation and integration application.
