With over 100 years combined software expertise, ABM
is able to complete any Software engineering job required.
Programmable Logic Controllers
ABM have engineers qualified to program all the
following Programmable Logic Controllers (PLC's) in all the appropriate
programming languages eg. Ladder/Function Block etc.
- Allen Bradley (Micrologix, SLC 500, PLC 5, Compact Logix, Control
logix and Softlogix)
- Siemens (S5 and S7 Range)
- APV Accos (A30 and 2S)
- Mitsubishi (FX , A & Q Series)
- Ge Fanuc
- Texas Instruments
- Creuzet M3
This is not a full list, If your PLC is not displayed
above please contact ABM to discuss your requirements. ABM is well versed in
helping customers out of tricky situations when they find themselves with old
unsupported hardware. For this reason ABM always has available development
equipment for all PLC models regardless of their age.
If you are looking for a full Site PLC Automation
Solution, We can help. We are experts in large scale PLC Solutions, Systems we
have created include one covering the whole production on one site using 3
large scale Control Logix 5000 controllers and over 10 SLC controllers all
communicating using our own network strategy to ensure high speed and network
Over the years we have also created our own software
solutions to work in conjuction with the manufacturers programming software to
allow us to produce extremely reliable solutions in a very tight timescale.
We are approved PLC System Integrators with Siemens,
Allen-Bradley and Mitsubishi.
We are approved Scada System Integrators for
Siemens, Rockwell, Wonderware and Mitsubishi, And have extensive experience
with programming all the following ranges of Scada Systems and Operator
- Wonderware Archestra Products/Intouch
- Fix 32 and Fix Dynamics
- Rockwell RSView/Factory Talk
- Simatic WinCC
- Mitsubish MX4
- DAQ Factory
We work closely with every client to ensure that the
solution we provide is the best for their particular situation, This often
involves providing the customer with one of our own runnable demonstration
systems to allow the customer to fine tune his own system design early on in
the development process.
We also have developed our own VCR style playback
system for certain of the scada systems, This allows us to see exactly what the
operator was viewing at any particular time in history. Including information
such as valve inputs/outputs,PID information or operator commands. This ensures
any debugging of problems can be done efficiently offsite at our head
We have many examples of previous systems we have
installed, Please contact ABM directly if you require demonstrations of any of
our previous systems.
Bespoke Software Development
For over 20 years ABM has been providing our customers
with custom developed solutions made to their requirements. Some of the
programming languages we can support include.
- Pascal / Delphi
- Visual Basic
- C and it's variations
An example of a recent bespoke application we have
developed was a Bottle Counting/Tracking system, The client for this job
requested we develop it using a programming language so that no license fees
were required for any future client nodes used on the system.
ABM is able to offer custom made solutions using
microcontrollers if PLC or PC based solutions do not fit your requirements.
We are experts in programming of all the
microcontrollers produced by Microchip Technology Inc. We have recently
produced a HGV hookup system for one client, and are currently developing an in
house Micro Brewery system ourselves based on these controllers.
