Integrating Power and Efficiency
Our automation division makes up a large part of what we do at Advanced Electric and Controls Inc.
Automated applications require control panels and on-machine wiring: we take pride in our ability to design, build quality, control systems.
Design, Build and Integrate
We offer a large variety of options in the area of control panels, depending on your budget.
From small junction boxes and operator consoles to large multi-door control panels and everything in between.
On-machine wiring and integration of control systems automation.
Design and build control systems for quick assembly in the field.
Want to infuse new life into older equipment? AEC can update old control systems while re-using as much existing material as possible while maintaining current electrical and safety codes.
Need to upgrade older machinery with new safety circuits and interlocks? AEC can support you with recommending, designing and integrating updated safety systems on your equipment.
Quality Control Panels
Meeting All Code Specifications
Human Machine Interface
The user interface in a manufacturing or process control system.
It provides a graphics-based visualization of an industrial control and monitoring system.
Previously called an “MMI” ( man machine interface ), an HMI typically resides in an office-based Windows computer that communicates with a specialized computer ( DCS, PLC or PAC ) in the plant.
Robot Programming and Programmable Logic Controllers
Programming Programmable Logic Controllers (PLCs) and Robots are a key aspect of our controls department. With years of experience and knowledge in this field, we can support you with whatever controls requirements you may have.
Some of these services include:
PLC programming of many major brands such as Allen-Bradley, Siemens and Omron.
PLC programming for many applications including stand alone machines such as fixtures, weld cells and presses. Large applications include large automated cells, press lines, conveyor and robot integration and many types of equipment.
Robot programming of Fanuc, ABB, Kawasaki and Motoman.
Programmable Logic Controllers
A programmable microprocessor-based device that is used in discrete manufacturing to control assembly lines and machinery on the shop floor as well as many other types of mechanical, electrical and electronic equipment in a plant.
A PLC is designed for real-time use in rugged, industrial environments.
Connected to sensors and actuators, PLCs are categorized by the number and type of I/O ports they provide and by their I/O scan rate.
Capable of performing many different tasks, it is a multiple-motion device with one or more arms and joints. Robots can be similar in form to a human, but industrial robots do not resemble people at all. Robots are designed for many purposes. In manufacturing, they are used for welding, riveting, scraping and painting.
