• Automation Upgrading, Retrofitting & Migration

    Mitigating Obsolescence Risks in Industrial Control Systems
    Automation systems, like all technologies, have a finite lifespan. As technology evolves, older systems may become outdated, presenting challenges for businesses. With the rapid retirement of experienced personnel, the need to address obsolescence risk becomes even more urgent. Our approach is to collaborate with clients to determine the optimal strategy for their situation, be it retrofitting, complete system upgrading, or transitioning to newer technology. Experienced control engineers ensure these processes are seamless, providing enhanced security and integration into existing operations.

    Efficient and Cost-Effective PLC Retrofit Solutions
    Aging PLC controls often suffer from discontinued components or scarcity of replacement parts. This situation can lead to significant downtime. Retrofitting is a remedy, involving the replacement of old components with new ones, resulting in a more stable system and potential performance enhancements.

    Our retrofitting process starts with an evaluation of organizational goals and technical requirements. Live Automation guides you in selecting suitable equipment and handles the engineering, installation, and commissioning stages. We offer a range of options, including upgrading drives, replacing membrane keypad HMIs with touchscreens, and incorporating additional buttons when needed.

    Benefits of Retrofitting

    When faced with aging or obsolete hardware and software, the instinct might be to overhaul the entire industrial control system. However, retrofitting can offer an alternative that provides the following benefits:

    Whether we're enabling full-scale automation or automating a single process within your facility, our approach incorporates a blend of dependable off-the-shelf components along with CNC machined and 3D printed parts to craft custom equipment tailored to your precise requirements.
