This is not a full list, If your PLC is not displayed above please contact ABM to discuss your requirements. ABM is well versed in helping customers out of tricky situations when they find themselves with old unsupported hardware. For this reason ABM always has available development equipment for all PLC models regardless of their age.
If you are looking for a full Site PLC Automation Solution, We can help. We are experts in large scale PLC Solutions, Systems we have created include one covering the whole production on one site using 3 large scale Control Logix 5000 controllers and over 10 SLC controllers all communicating using our own network strategy to ensure high speed and network integrity.
Over the years we have also created our own software solutions to work in conjuction with the manufacturers programming software to allow us to produce extremely reliable solutions in a very tight timescale.
We are approved PLC System Integrators with Siemens, Allen-Bradley and Mitsubishi.
We are approved Scada System Integrators for Siemens, Rockwell, Wonderware and Mitsubishi, And have extensive experience with programming all the following ranges of Scada Systems and Operator HMI.
- Wonderware Archestra Products/Intouch
- Fix 32 and Fix Dynamics
- Rockwell RSView/Factory Talk
- Simatic WinCC
- Mitsubish MX4
- DAQ Factory
We work closely with every client to ensure that the solution we provide is the best for their particular situation, This often involves providing the customer with one of our own runnable demonstration systems to allow the customer to fine tune his own system design early on in the development process.
We also have developed our own VCR style playback system for certain of the scada systems, This allows us to see exactly what the operator was viewing at any particular time in history. Including information such as valve inputs/outputs,PID information or operator commands. This ensures any debugging of problems can be done efficiently offsite at our head office.
We have many examples of previous systems we have installed, Please contact ABM directly if you require demonstrations of any of our previous systems.
Bespoke Software Development
For over 20 years ABM has been providing our customers with custom developed solutions made to their requirements. Some of the programming languages we can support include.
- Pascal / Delphi
- Visual Basic
- C and it’s variations
An example of a recent bespoke application we have developed was a Bottle Counting/Tracking system, The client for this job requested we develop it using a programming language so that no license fees were required for any future client nodes used on the system.
ABM is able to offer custom made solutions using microcontrollers if PLC or PC based solutions do not fit your requirements.
We are experts in programming of all the microcontrollers produced by Microchip Technology Inc. We have recently produced a HGV hookup system for one client, and are currently developing an in house Micro Brewery system ourselves based on these controllers.
