PLC/DCS

The control system and communications are at the core of every operation. Improper control and communication can be a overwhelming task to diagnose and correct, and can cost an operator major time and efficiencies if not corrected. Whether it be an initial system design, or retrofit (migration) of an existing system that is near obsoletion, Focal Automation has extensive experience on all PLC, DCS, RTU, SCADA and HMI's.

 

Our technical staff has broad understanding and training allowing us to accommodate many different applications and platforms. Using IEC-61131-3 standards: Ladder, Function Block, Structured text, Instruction List AND Sequential Function Chart. Software Configuration of Server Systems, Historian, Patch Fixes, Communication Testing. 

Focal Automation’s deep breadth of understanding and experience allows us to be one of the fastest and most efficient solutions to your automation project. Our programmers are experts in system integration design, and we can implement complex control strategies. We always implement a formal project management methodology, as experience has taught us that project success requires early planning, continual monitoring, and consistently open communication with our clients.
