Automation & PLC Programming
Saturn Automation has put together an authoritative team of experienced engineers from different industries to provide PLC programming services for new system installations, upgrades to existing controls and complete industrial retrofits.

Applying Technologies
Technology by itself doesn’t create success. An integrated system that incorporates new technology into known, well-trusted processes creates success. And this only comes with experience, creativity and following proven engineering practices.

Applying Human Ingenuity
Depending on the size of the project, a collection of industry consultants with knowledge of the latest automation technology and products are gathered to provide:

  • a reliable automation system,
  • a modular, flexible and expandable solution which grows with your business needs,
  • an integrated solution that incorporates new and old network technologies,
  • a reliable hardware and software system for years of consistent operation,
  • fully documented, non-proprietary solutions.

Services include:

  • Design & Documentation
  • HMI Control Panel Fabrication
  • Programming for any PLC vendor
  • Control Panel Fabrication
  • CAD Services
  • Implementation & Commissioning
  • Start-up & Shut-down
  • Training
  • Custom Software Development
  • Feasibility Studies
  • Troubleshooting, Maintenance & Support

Elements of System Integration
Professionals must design and optimize three key tasks to build a successfully integrated system. These include:

Data collection. Depending on the industry, data may be collected using analog devices, digital devices, or a combination of the two. Accurate, comprehensive data acquisition is the lifeblood of an efficient, high-performing system, and it must be distributed through the proper network of channels to ensure accessibility.

System supervision. The system must also be supervised to ensure ongoing performance. Today, system supervision is typically achieved through integration of automated, computer-powered monitoring and human personnel. Users must be able to implement necessary adjustments with minimal disruption to concurrent processes.

System control. System control typically follows a hierarchical structure, in which a lead supervisor enters commands on a master interface while field personnel have limited remote access to pertinent controls.
