Obsolescence is the silent killer of industrial control systems. Processes, hardware and ideas can quickly become archaic with ever-evolving technology. Infrastructure will always outlive tech hardware, so careful planning is key to sustainability.
Your PLC/PAC equipment is not designed to last as long as the steel and mechanical systems. A forty-year design on a piece of production equipment or process may require up to three control upgrades throughout its expected lifetime.
Controller and I/O System Upgrades are a fact of life for Automation System owners and operators. Trust the Martz team to bring your systems forward, minimize downtime, and document the process.
Even the best plant data systems have a relatively short life span. Continuous migration and modernization is simply a reality that must be managed.
We can help you with virtualization and many other strategies to keep your plant running smooth and error free for the life of your equipment. Count on the Martz team to maximize the return on your industrial data assets.
The life-cycle for integrated motion is very similar to that of the Controller, so a migration strategy is a must-have on any piece of capital equipment incorporating integrated motion.
The evolution of the industry and the release of modern motion networks often turn an upgrade into an opportunity for increased throughput and decreased downtime. Trust the Martz team to move your technology forward and squeeze every last bit of speed out of your production equipment.
Drives fail, soft starts fail, it’s a reality of the modern manufacturing environment. Talk to the Martz team today about creating a plan for those inevitable failure events in your motor control systems.
