Just because a machine is old does not mean it’s not serviceable. The rate of change of electronics and CNC/PLC technology means machine controls often become outdated faster then the mechanics. Using Modern PLC technology Kerr Technology Group is able to design and interface newer PLC technology into a legacy machine
Using a BRX PLC from automation Direct we were able to augment the existing machine by using a new PLC to replace some of the older control relays. This improved uptime and reliability of the machine. The new PLC was sized to be able to take over more control functions as the legacy control hardware becomes unstable.
