2 Reasons for Automation Diagnostics

  • You have an initiative that requires the connection of your shop floor assets to a network.

An Automation Diagnostic will help you be certain you know what your equipment can tell you, and if that information will satisfy the requirements of your initiative.

Every asset is unique, and each comes with its own level of complexity.

We created our Automation Diagnostic, so that you can be certain what your equipment can tell you, how much it will cost to get that information, and how long it will take.

  • You have too much downtime because of obsolete or high risk control systems and componenets.

An Automation Diagnostic will help you get a realistic picture of your installed base. Be certain you know which equipment could have extended downtime while you search for qualified technicians, or source parts from eBay. 

We created our Automation Diagnostic, so that you can be certain you know your obsolescence risk and have a path to avoid extended downtime.

"I spent weeks making phone calls and waiting for a response from our OEMs and it was frustrating. One call got me all the information I needed to plan my project. Now I can pass that information on to others in a clear and concise format."
