ENGlobal’s Automation Segment has a wide variety of experience with integrating control, monitoring and general automation systems.
Control system integration involves linking multiple vendor control systems and monitoring equipment with the standard control system. These tasks require in-depth knowledge of multiple vendor systems and involve specifying hardware, software and protocols. The integration typically includes: Asset Management Systems, Historians, Lab Management Systems and Order Tracking Systems.
A typical systems integration might require custom application development and/or custom drivers. Control system to control system integration might include configuring a programmable logic controller (PLC) to communicate with a distributed control system (DCS) via Modbus protocol. Other integration would include OPC connections to the DCS from third party monitoring systems.
