Control Systems Integration

POA can seamlessly integrate control systems to improve your production capabilities. We are the rare company that can handle your automation project from start to finish. POA can design, build, and install control CD systems and commission, calibrate, and train after installation.

Programming

Our team of experts understands and utilizes various types of programming for control systems. Each programming project is unique. Our project management procedures are robust, ensuring your project is delivered on time and within budget. 

A successful programming project starts with the Functional Specification document. We will guide you through the process of documenting a machine’s automated functions, defining each function individually and completely. This documentation includes: how the operators interact with the machine; defined settings and set points; defined alarm limits; control actions; and who gets notified of alarms and how. Our documentation process ensures operator controls or touch screens are defined, reviewed, and approved before we start programming. This approach ensures we build what you need, with a familiar look and feel as well as correct industry-specific terminology. We are experts in PLC, HMI, SCADA, and VFD.

Validatable Control Systems

We’re experts in validatable control systems. Our process ensures your automated system is built to satisfy regulatory requirements—and we provide all of the documentation to prove it.
