Brock Solutions' Controls Automation Overview
The controls automation is a single point-of-failure that can bring down the entire process and therefore represents significant risk. In addition, if the operators and maintenance personnel cannot efficiently operate and manage the system, the inefficient operation correlats with unnecessarily high operational costs during the life of the system.
With over 30 years' experience and 1000s of controls projects successfully completed, Brock is a trusted solution provider for reducing risks and the costs of running systems over the long term. Our controls capabilities include:
- Programmable Logic Controllers (PLCs) and Distributed Control Systems (DCSs)
- Drives Engineering
- Human Machine Interfaces (HMIs) and Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition (SCADA) Systems
- Batch processing
- I/O Emulation
What makes us different and significantly reduces our start-up time compared to traditional methods is our I/O emulation capability, which permits complete testing of the controls and software automation systems during the project development cycle, culminating with a Factory Acceptance Test (FAT) where customer stakeholders 'test drive' and validate their systems prior to the systems being installed on site.
