Data Capture & Reporting

As industrial plants become more automated and connected, the options for viewing and logging production and other plant data increase. Dalton Electrical can implement this historical logging for your plant, and work with operators and management to develop useful tools to view this data. Some examples are performance monitoring, power usage reports, production or shift reports, wastage reports. Dalton’s have been heavily involved in recent successful product tracking, and serialisation projects.

 

Manufacturing

Dalton Electrical builds its control panels with the same high standards it applies to all work. All control wiring is ferruled and numbered, all components are labelled and full drawings are provided. These measures help maximise the lifespan of your new system and make fault-finding quicker and easier in the future.

Maintenance

Our service team can provide 24 hour, 365 days of the year back up services to all equipment, either via a remote connection, or by visiting site.

Motion Control

Specialist applications with VSD, Stepper, or Servo control.

Dalton Electrical has experience across a wide range of Integrated, or stand alone Servo systems; Rockwell Kinetix & Powerflex 527, Omron 1S, Siemens Simotion, SEW MDX, Baldor Flex, Trio Motion, and others.

 

Re-Automation/ Reverse Engineering

Dalton Electrical technicians have a wide range of skills across many industries, so if you have a mechanically sound machine with aging or unsupported electrical components, it can be worth while to re-automate with new control gear. Machine reliability is greatly increased, and often speed or product throughput can be increased also.

We also offer legacy hardware migration solutions to bring your control equipment up to date to help improve reliability and support-ability.
