Control Systems

Engineering and Integration Services You Can Count On.

Industrial Control Systems (ICS) are absolutely necessary to keep processes running smoothly, efficiently, and safely.  They range in size and complexity from simple standalone control panels to fully integrated, distributed systems that carefully choreograph complex processes.  Vary from a small handful of process variables to 1000s.  Control systems are not “1 size fits all”, and although standard off the shelf equipment and open industry standards are applied, control systems are carefully designed for the specific purpose in mind.

Casne Engineering has seen these systems evolve dramatically over the last 40 years.  In that time, we have helped businesses like yours design, construct, and improve mission-critical operations with leading process-intensive organizations.

Instrumentation and Controls Design

Secure, Rational and Reliable Process Instrumentation and Control

Instrumentation and control systems keep your operations running efficiently and safely.  You want a secure, future-proof, and open architecture approach to design.  It is also a given that systems must be made secure from cyber attacks.  Poorly designed instrumentation and controls impose a daily burden on safe and efficient operations, so getting it done right the first time is critical.

Casne Engineering delivers fit-for-purpose instrumentation and control solutions across a wide range of industries.  Whether you require modernization of existing critical systems or new greenfield applications, our solutions are easily maintained, modified, and upgraded throughout the system life. By standardizing common functions, we can develop and commission systems efficiently and reliably.

Our specialties include:

  • Instrument Selection and Calibration
  • Control Panel and HMI Design
  • Motor Control Centers (MCC) and Variable Frequency Drives (VFDs) Design
  • Programmable Logic Controllers (PLC)
  • Networking and Telemetry

The costs of a poorly managed project can spill over, affecting your operations and ultimately your business performance.

PLC Programming

Powering Up Your Control Systems

Your automated or semi-automated equipment is powered by programmable logic controllers (PLCs). A PLC programmed with inefficient logic can lead to a drop in your equipment’s performance and life, pushing up running and maintenance costs.

At Casne, we know how frustrating it can be to keep battling rising maintenance costs. It’s why we have helped hundreds of clients boost operational efficiency through our PLC programming services. Our engineers are trained on multiple platforms including legacy systems and are proficient in programming a variety of industrial automation, control systems, and machine tools. Whether you need a new system developed from the ground up, a complete industrial retrofit, or an upgrade, our engineering experts can execute the programming you need.   We also help you troubleshoot your existing systems through our ESD services.

Our PLC programming services include:

  • Machine control for discrete, batch, and process applications
  • Ladder, structured text, function block, and sequential function chart program paradigms
  • Data collection and operational reporting
  • Vision, robot, and motion system integration
  • Bidirectional PLC-to-PC communications
  • Complex recipe management and order processing
  • SCADA/OPC/IOT integration
  • Certified safety solutions

Our engineers are certified in the following platforms: Allen Bradley/Rockwell, Beckhoff, Siemens, GE, Automation Direct, Schneider, Mitsubishi, Yaskawa, and Omron.

Motor Starter and Variable Frequency Drive Design

Reliable Solutions for Motor Control

The complexities of motor control are often overlooked. One size fits all solutions are often pushed by vendors, which can lead to energy waste, operational issues, safety concerns, and shortened lifetime of motors and equipment.

We consider all aspects and provide custom motor control solutions. We have experience designing motor starters and VFD control systems for HVAC, industrial manufacturing, water and wastewater, transportation, material handling, cranes, and more. Typically motors are specified by mechanical engineers, so we work closely with our partner mechanical engineering firms throughout the design process to ensure that nothing is missed.

HMI / SCADA Design

Build Operational Excellence through Data-powered Decision Making

Whether you run a factory or a utility, you’re always under pressure to stay competitive. Not doing enough to increase productivity and quality while lowering costs can mean getting left behind.

Having worked with several plant operators across industries, we know what it takes to stay ahead of the competition.  It’s why we offer HMI/SCADA design services. HMI and SCADA give business leaders like you real-time, context-based information that enables you to make the right decisions, quickly — whether it’s improving efficiency or reducing the number of defects.

With HMIs, Casne can help your operators and line supervisors control industrial and manufacturing processes. HMIs provide historical and trending data on machine efficiency or product quality, helping you to re-evaluate and improve your operational processes.

SCADA applications get operating data about your operational technology systems in order to control and optimize them. A best-in-class SCADA system can boost efficiency and productivity, eliminate inefficient processes, and offer greater control over disparate systems.

For the past several years, we have been the partner of choice for corporations and government organizations in solving complex automation challenges across a gamut of industries. We offer vendor-independent, customized solutions that will maximize return on assets through operational excellence.

We also partner with <OSISoft, Siemens, ABB>
