Unfortunately, user interface life-cycles are usually shorter than those of the other components in an automation system. We offer many obsolete user panels from a variety of manufacturers; if spare parts are proving too difficult to maintain or locate, a unit upgrade may be the best approach.

In order to perform HMI upgrades we need the original panel application, which can be converted or reprogrammed to a new panel type. We have many tools for uploading programs from old legacy panels if the application is not already available.
With HMI upgrades, we're able to include the new user interface as preinstalled. We are able to convert and load new applications into supplied panels based on your original UI program. This upgrading service is available for the majority of user interfaces we service.

PLC System Upgrade

New platforms are almost always more powerful and more flexible in terms of communication and signal processing. However, if the original control system was already performing well, the existing control loops should be retained in the new system. Our expertise in both new and legacy systems enables us to estimate what exactly is required for a successful upgrade.

If it turns out that an application program is too unwieldy or complicated to modify or adapt, we usually recommend re-engineering of the entire application.
