05-Jul-2012 | News-Press Release
Loves Park, IL ( prsafe ) July 2, 2012 - Quantum Design would like to announce that it will provide Allen Bradley / Rockwell Automation upgrade support for businesses looking to migrate their existing 1771 I/O and other older control systems to the newer ControlLogix 1756 series platform. As a Rockwell Automation Systems Integrator, Quantum Design has positioned itself to be a premier provider of these system migrations.
Earlier this month, Quantum Design printed a press release stating that Allen Bradley is no longer supporting PLC5 hardware. This information was incorrect; Allen Bradley is in fact still supporting PLC5 hardware. Quantum Design would like to apologize to Allen Bradley for releasing the false information. Please read the updated press release below.
Quantum Design would like to announce that it will provide Allen Bradley / Rockwell Automation upgrade support for businesses looking to migrate their existing 1771 I/O, or older control systems to the newer ControlLogix 1756 series platform. As a Rockwell Automation Systems Integrator, Quantum Design has positioned itself to be a premier provider of these system migrations.
A major concern for businesses that utilize older systems for their automation processes is when a component in their control system crashes, finding a replacement part can be a risky and expensive proposition. Some companies have resorted to sites like eBay and other online reseller merchants to acquire these much needed components and spare parts in order to keep their systems up and running. However, due to the dwindling supply of some 1771 I/O equipment these companies are finding that the potential for unplanned downtime is no longer worth the risk.
For this reason, a migration path to the newer ControlLogix platform is something that all Engineering, Plant and Maintenance managers should seriously consider. These migrations can be done over time and at the convenience of the customer to minimize costs and the risks associated with upgrading an entire facility all at once. 1771 I/O Series based installations can be very complex, integrating all kinds of hardware and plant operation software, which should be a key factor for working with a company such as Quantum Design, that has the experience necessary to ensure a smooth and documented transition.
With businesses running leaner every day and the need for greater efficiency, the thought of unplanned system downtime can be the cause of lots of sleepless nights for those responsible for maintaining these aging systems. The Allen Bradley / Rockwell Automation platform is very stable and should be supported for years to come by Rockwell, which makes it a good solution when considering an upgrade path for your existing control systems.
As a Rockwell Automation Systems Integrator, Quantum Design offers only the highest quality solutions with a supporting staff of engineers that have the knowledge and experience to design and migrate 1771 I/O based systems to the ControlLogix platform. Offering controls system upgrades, control panel design and control panel assembly for over 25 years, Quantum Design is uniquely positioned to provide a migration strategy that can provide many benefits for businesses that utilize Allen Bradley / Rockwell Automation and other control platforms.
