We only utilize open, non-proprietary controls programs in the design and implementation of our controls systems. Providing our customers with proven and reliable standards for system control minimizes the initial investment and maximizes operational uptime. Our non-proprietary systems allow flexibility for support and upgrades after the initial installation.
The control architecture is designed for remote internal and external monitoring of important system parameters to ensure maximum operational performance. These are often incorporated in multiple locations within your facility as well as externally to primary control, or support locations. All of our systems are designed with remote connections to facilitate fast, effective support to minimize downtime should an issue occur. We can operate these systems within your current network security environments to ensure all information is maintained securely.
PC/PLC Based Systems
We offer both PC and PLC (Programmable Logic Controller)based control systems depending upon your application or specifications. Our PC system architecture provides the best of both worlds with core processing code operating independently of the Windows environment, and non-critical operator interfaces operating with user-friendly and easy to learn windows-based applications. Both our PLC and PC code uses standard logic routines to bring about an extremely reliable solution quickly.
Open, Non-Proprietary Equipment
Utilizing commercially available components and programming architectures, our team is able to specify the most reliable and cost-effective components.
Fine Tuning with System Emulation
Using state of the art software, emulation, and PLC, which controls the facility operation processes, Bastian Solutions experts provide a full-picture overview of the automated systems before installation. Emulation introduces real input sequences from the system so we can more clearly view how the design and idea will function with a preexisting or new installation. In the emulation we match real-time parameters for the facility operations and automation system. This may include throughput speed, devices, motors, variables, sensors, and dimensions for hardware, products or materials handled. Emulation provides early access to finite details that you might otherwise gain only after the system is installed and operations start.
