Control Systems

CE&I understands that the ultimate need for a business network is to capture information and provide useful data. The key to CE&Iís success is that we understand the need to get historical data and statistical information in a usable format so the plant managers can run the facility efficiently. CE&I looks at the electrical, instrumentation, and control systems as a whole. Our networking team is experienced in commercial and business networks as well as industrial networks.

CE&I has extensive experience and expertise in control systems. CE&I can provide everything from small simplistic programs and basic process controls to control systems for batch plants to continuous feed process controls and SIS systems. Our programmers and technicians are well versed in multiple platforms of DCS and can program, maintain, and implement most PLCs including:

  • Allen Bradley PLC3, PLC5, and SLC500ís ControlLogix, MicroLogix
  • Yokogawa
  • Device Net, Control Net
  • Modicon
  • Honeywell
  • Siemens
  • Foxboro Invensys

CE&I control systems teams have strong electrical and instrumentation backgrounds. They understand both theory and application in the field and in control systems implementation. As such, the total design cycle is approached with an eye not only toward constructability, but also toward maintainability and reliability. CE&I understands that a good clear channel is the essential ingredient to reliable communications platforms. Thatís why CE&I programmers and technicians were originally trained as installers and gained valuable experience on startup crews and commissioning crews. CE&I understands the importance of cabling installation and bus integrity from beginning to end. CE&I programmers and technicians are well trained in multiple communication platforms including:

  • Foundation Fieldbus
  • Profibus
  • Analog and Digital Systems
  • Hart protocol
  • Devicenet
  • Controlnet
  • Ethernet
  • Serial Communications
  • Telemetry
  • Wireless
  • Modbus
