Controls Upgrade

Is It Time to Upgrade Your Control System?

We usually upgrade control
systems for clients when:

  • Their system has reached the end of its life and/or no longer functions
  • An upgrade would result in significant energy savings
  • They’re already undergoing other major plant renovations or upgrades

There are a few red flags to keep in mind. When software versions are no longer supported or will not run on currently supported versions of the Windows operating system, it’s time to upgrade. The risk is too high for virus and cybersecurity issues.

Another indicator is when hardware is no longer being manufactured and spare parts are difficult or impossible to find. When you’re buying used parts on eBay, it’s definitely time to start budgeting for an upgrade. The risk of a minor failure taking down your whole facility while you search for spare parts is too high.
