Control System Modernization

Control System Modernization

Automation and control system modernization is critical now more than ever,
whether that means migrating to upgraded hardware and software or
establishing the systems required for smart factory readiness. Manufacturers
must be able to adapt quickly to the dynamic changes that impact operations
including supply chain disruptions, resource and labor shortages, increasing
energy costs, changing market demands, and more. Those who continue to
operate legacy and mature control systems may experience unscheduled
downtime, reduced throughput, and increased operational risks

Digital transformation of data and industrial automation helps manufacturers
gain the highest levels of efficiency and reliability, but the task of
modernizing is often overwhelming unless it is approached with the right
partner. EN Automation has decades of experience working as a systems
integrator and helping clients with control system migration and
modernization efforts. Our automation professionals are proficient in over
50 platforms and apply best practices to ensure that systems are designed
and programmed as intended to achieve the desired results.

EN Automation can help clients optimize their unique processes and
applications while managing the spectrum of automation and control system
modernization options available. In addition to collaborating to determine
next steps, our engineers will ensure products are updated with the latest
versions of software to provide access to new features and security patches
that address vulnerabilities.

When legacy or obsolete systems are in place, EN Automation can provide
guidance on modernizing drives and motion controls, upgrading I/O,
establishing modern communication networks, migration solutions, and more.
Some common migration examples include:

  • Rockwell PLC5 and SLC500 to CompactLogix and ControlLogix
  • Siemens S7-300 and S7-400 to S7-1200 and S7- 1500
  • Legacy GE 90-30, 90-70, or RX7i to Current GE RX3i
  • HMI/SCADA applications for AVEVA Wonderware, Inductive Ignition,
    Mitsubishi ICONICS, etc.
  • Cross-manufacturer/platform upgrades
  • Communication including Siemens Profibus to Profinet, Rockwell DeviceNet
    and ControlNet to EtherNet IP, etc

EN Automation offers comprehensive services to provide clients with seamless
solutions for their automation and control system modernization from
discovery to design and delivery

Control system modernization is not a one and done process and is best
approached in phases. EN Automation begins with a consultative approach to
identify manufacturing pain points by actively listening to the client and
adequately assessing existing systems and processes. We will develop an
automation roadmap that clearly defines modernization plans so the client
can prioritize and progress in phases to minimize production downtime and
maximize the efficiency of the upgrade process.

EN Automation is a CSIA-certified systems integrator. As a sector of ENTRUST
Solutions Group, we have convenient office locations across the nation to
provide local, flexible, and scalable resources. Contact us to learn more
