Control System Upgrades

TM Controls provides system migration and upgrade of obsolete control systems, or part of, such as PLC hardware or HMI operator interfaces. As always we design and schedule the work to minimise plant downtime and improve plant availability.

Many automation projects are upgrades or migrations of legacy systems. Either due to technology obsolescence, regulatory requirements, process improvements or safety demands, the decision to upgrade or migrate must be taken with consideration to safety and plant downtime.

We can help and provide solutions for the following problems and more:
