Cybertrol Overview

PLC, HMI & SCADA Programming

Plantwide control systems typically involve the integration of Programmable Logic Controllers (PLCs), Human Machine Interfaces (HMIs), and Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition (SCADA) systems. Programming these components plays a crucial role in developing a comprehensive and effective control system.

Cybertrol uses programming standards to ensure a cohesive and high-quality result. We exercise a modular approach so standardized templates can be utilized as the building blocks and foundation of a robust, flexible, and scalable control system. Our team builds applications that provide tiered data visibility, allowing for high-level operations such as production monitoring down to detailed device monitoring, while also integrating best practice design methods throughout the process.

Control System Migrations and Upgrades

You shouldn’t feel stuck within your legacy control system. We manage large-scale facility assessments and control system upgrades in a controlled, well-planned manner to ensure minimal plant downtime. The process starts by analyzing existing wiring systems and software operations before creating and implementing updated designs to meet the specific needs of your plant. The result is a coordinated integration and construction plan, executed via a seamless transition.

Here is what you can expect from Cybertrol Engineering, when you partner with us for your next plantwide automation project.

Testimonials

Just wanted to reach out and let you know that your team has done an outstanding job on the project. In fact, they have done so well, so fast, that they will wrap up the project early. They worked their way through the panel/enclosure assemblies way more quickly than I anticipated. It worked out VERY well and I’ll definitely keep you guys in mind as we move through the spring. We’ve got more projects coming through, but we’re just not ready yet for any additional resources. Thanks again!! "
