Manufacturers and clients alike have recognized Enterprise Automation for their expert solutions and technical capability. EA is trained and certified across many hardware and software platforms, as well as a variety of automation service offerings.
EA is 1 of 15 Schneider Electric Alliance Master Partner Integrators in the world, and the only one in the United States. This manufacturer invitation only recognition gives clients peace of mind when developing or upgrading SE control systems.
EA is certified in AVEVA System Platform (Wonderware), AVEVA PlantSCADA (Citect), InTouch and InTouch OMI, and Historian. In addition, we can deploy InTouch Edge and IntelaTrac mobile rounds. We are the only AVEVA/Wonderware Endorsed Systems Integrator in all of California.
EA has decades of experience implementing Rockwell Automation control platforms for process and discrete applications. We have also recently expanded to provide additional offerings like PlantPAX into appropriate applications.
EA is a Schneider Electric EcoStruxure Certified integrator and is capable of working with the entire EcoStruxure product ecosystem.
SCADA Consulting & Systems Integration Services
System Audits & Site Analysis
EA engineers are trained to provide valuable condition assessments of existing facilities with prioritized recommendations. We focus on: Disaster Recovery & Prevention, Physical & Cyber-Security, Documentation, Software, Infrastructure Condition, and System Performance. Our reports are used by operators and management alike to highlight areas for improvement, validate past investments, and drive future budgets.
Electrical Design & Testing
With several PE’s on board, EA specializes in detailed design and shop drawings for low voltage control panels and motor control cabinets. Fabrication is handled through our partner panel shop, where we also perform extensive factory acceptance testing prior to shipment.
Networking Design & Setup
One of EA’s key differentiators is our expertise in IT-level design of OT networks; which includes routing and switching, firewall setup and configuration (including DMZ design), wireless communications, and efficient protocol and media application.
EA has been singularly focused on implementing virtualized SCADA platforms for over a decade, specializing in VMware and Hyper-V. Being on the cutting edge of this now mature technology, we fully understand the benefits of virtualization and how it can be implemented safely, securely, and in compliance with existing IT policies.
EA can design and select controls system hardware across a number of manufacturers, including controllers (PLC), HMIs, communications modules, and drives. We work mostly with Schneider Electric Modicon, Allen-Bradley, and Siemens hardware, but have familiarity with a number of other hardware platforms.
Functional Specification & System Optimization
All EA technical personnel are degreed Chemical, Electrical and Mechanical Engineers because we believe that the best control systems engineers are those trained in the fundamental math and physics behind the systems we are controlling. This added perspective allows our team to highlight core discrepancies between the system’s process or mechanical design and the client’s objectives. This typically occurs naturally through the process of developing detailed functional and operational specifications.
PLC Programming (Schneider Electric, Allen Bradley, Siemens)
All EA engineers are proficient with the suite of IEC-61131 programming languages, and understand how each manufacturer implements the standard differently. We also have industry-leading certifications and tools for PLC platform modernization, allowing us to provide obsolescence planning and migration services.
SCADA Configuration (Wonderware, Citect, VTScada)
To provide the highest level of expertise, EA specializes only on SCADA software packages for which we are trained and certified. We can help you select which option is right for you, and design a system that can grow with your operation. EA is an AVEVA Endorsed SI certified in System Platform (formerly Wonderware), PlantSCADA (Citect), OMI, and InTouch, Schneider Electric Master Alliance Partner for working with Ecostruxure Hybrid DCS, and a VTScada Advanced Certified Solution Provider.
OIT (HMI) Programming (Schneider Electric, Allen Bradley, Siemens)
Where local interface panels (OITs) are required, EA engineers are trained to design them with ergonomics and alignment with a client’s SCADA system in mind. We have worked with most of the industry’s main OIT manufactures.
Historian & Data Analytics
EA has extensive experience with design and setup of Tier 1 local historians, Tier 2 enterprise historians, and secure third-party data sharing. We also help clients implement CMMS and MES products that allow cross-contextualization of SCADA and business data.
EA develops and designs custom reports across the industries we serve. In many cases we can help reduce the time spent scrubbing and cleaning data from days to minutes, with improved accuracy and traceability.
