Upgrading/Modifying Existing Systems

Industrial Software Ltd understand that some industries have old control systems that they are happy with but just require small modifications or upgrades to keep the plant efficient and up-to-date. We take on any small jobs that most other systems integrators would not usually be interested in especially modifying legacy equipment.

Obsolescence Surveys

Industrial Software Ltd offer an obsolescence survey that involves a site visit and investigation. A detailed report will highlight equipment that is coming to the end of its manufacturing life or has already passed. Equipment that has become obsolete are deemed as high risk and can cause significant down time if a failure occurs and an upgrade path has not been identified.

This service provides customers with possible replacements or upgrade paths for the obsolete equipment. Some software may require conversion to be downloaded into the upgraded equipment. Industrial Software Ltd can also offer this as part of the service.
