Ultimate Automation will make our modern industry as primitive and out-dated as the stone age man looks to us today
Automation at RN Engineering
Automation helps production units maximize returns through strict control over operations and improved efficiency. Industrial automation differs from the traditional concept of equipment manufacturing by introducing smart logic into the operations of machinery and equipment, using highly complex programming software.
Synergi-FX has created a niche for itself in Industrial automation domain resulting in high productivity, high quality, high flexibility, high Information accuracy and high safety. We continually add specialized staff to our roster to ensure our expertise remains industry leading.
Synergi-FX serves as a certified integrator and distributor for the world’s leading automation products, including Wonderware industrial software solutions from Schneider Electric, Citect, ClearScada, Wonderware, Yokagawa, Ignition, Scadavantage, FactoryTalk, RSView, VTScada, Cygnet, Delta V and Rockwell.
Synergi-FX is positioned to help companies achieve the business model transformation they need to realize the full potential of Automation and the Industrial Internet of Things. Industrial Internet of Things in Automation industry offers manufacturers the chance to build faster processes, better products, improved asset efficiency, and higher productivity. The time to start realizing its potential is now.
Distributed Control Systems (DCS)
Distributed Control System (DCS) is specially designed with redundancy and diagnostic capabilities to improve control reliability and performance. It gives greater flexibility to control distributed discrete field devices and its operating stations. In this era of revolution technology, industrial automation system deals with advanced automation control technologies to have better control performance over complex processes.
It is a specially designed automated control system that consists of geographically distributed control elements over the plant or control area. It differs from the centralized control system wherein a single controller at central location handles the control function, in DCS each process element or machine or group of machines is controlled by a dedicated controller. DCS consists of many local controllers in various sections of plant control area and are connected via a high-speed communication network. The controllers can communicate among themselves and with other controllers like supervisory terminals, operator terminals, historians, etc.
Synergi-FX digital automation system helps you improve your operations by harnessing today’s predictive technologies in an easy, intuitive, and interoperable way to connect your people, processes, and production. Extending predictive intelligence more economically where you need it. We have expertise in a wide range of DCS platforms which includes Foxboro, DeltaV, Honeywell, ABB, Yokagawa – Safety Instrumented Systems (Triconex).
Remote Terminal Units (RTU)
A remote terminal unit (RTU) is a multipurpose device used for remote monitoring and control of various devices and systems for automation. It is typically deployed in an industrial environment and serves a similar purpose to programmable logic circuits (PLCs) but to a higher degree. An RTU is considered a self-contained computer as it has all the basic parts that, together, define a computer: a processor, memory and storage. Because of this, it can be used as an intelligent controller or master controller for other devices that, together, automate a process such as a portion of an assembly line.
Synergi-FX has extensive experience and expertise with different types of RTUs including Bristol Babcock (Network 3000 and ControlWave) Scadapack and Control Microsystems products, Rosemount / Spartan RTUs and metering products; Micromotion, GC, Omni Flow computers. Our configuration activities are verified using in house commissioning checkout software. We can also manufacture to meet other standards, which meets the Alberta Energy Regulators’ Directive 17 requirements for electronic flow meters.
Programmable Logic Controllers (PLC)
PLCs, or programmable logic controllers, are the workhorse of any industrial automated system. PLCs are microprocessors which monitor input data from sensors and relays, and use a unique form of ladder logic to control output devices such as actuators, alarm beacons, motors, valves, etc. which perform real-world functions and makes decisions based upon a custom program to control the state of output devices.
We are experienced in programming and troubleshooting a variety of PLC hardware from major manufacturers, including Rockwell, Schneider, GE, Omron.
Synergi-FX’s PLC expertise includes:
- Control strategy development and implementation
- Logic description and control narrative development
- Deep understanding of PLC Programming ladder logic and all aspects of inputs and outputs of the system.
- Develop Logic and Shutdown Keys from existing PLC/DCS Software
- Simulation software development for customer acceptance testing (CAT)
- Excellent understanding of HMI programming and its interaction with PLC
- Troubleshooting skills needed to make sure all machines are running as efficiently as possible
