What does iAUTOMATION do?

iAUTOMATION has been in the industrial automation market for almost 11 years now. In these 11 years we have gathered a lot of knowledge and skill that we offer to the market, but not everybody know the complete service offering of iAUTOMATION.

iAUTOMATION industrial control system engineering

iAUTOMATION has a group of very skilled industrial automation engineers who can design and build a complete industrial automation project for you. We engineer panels and software in house, which allows for engineering time to be reduced. At iAUTOMATION we can work with almost all industrial automation systems, although we have specialist knowledge on all Siemens control systems:

  • Teleperm XP
  • SPPA T2000/T3000
  • PCS 7 / PCS Neo (Batch, RouteControl, Telecontrol, Powercontrol, OpenOS, Historian)
  • Tia Portal / Step7

But we also have experience in designing and building turn-key solutions with:

  • ABB 800xa
  • Emerson DeltaV  / Emerson Ovation
  • Wonderware / Aveva Intouch hmi and edge
  • Rockwell rslogix/rsview/FactoryTalk
  • HIMA Himax/SILWorx/HiMatrix

Besides turn-key solutions, iAUTOMATION provides project based consultancy and service and support for installations in the field for all of these systems. With our extensive knowledge of energy, Oil and gas, pharmaceutical, food and beverage and water applications, we are well suited to help you keep your system performing as it should.

iAUTOMATION Also has a lot of knowledge and experience working on the following machines, and so can help you with any service or control system related issues:

  • Siemens Gas Turbines
  • Siemens / Dresser-rand compressors
  • Gas turbine driven generators
  • MAN Gas Turbines
  • GE Gas Turbines
  • Solar Gas Turbines
  • MHPS Gas Turbines
Service and managed environments

When a control system or virtualization platform is handed over to a customer, iAUTOMATION will offer a service contract for the delivered solution. This service contract can be for remote service, onsite service, monitoring and even a completely managed environment. We also offer such service for systems not engineered by iAUTOMATION in case a customer has a solution they would like to renew a service contract on.

Besides service contracts, iAUTOMATION also has systems specialists and service engineers, who can help you when there are problems on site with any automation system. When you give iAUTOMATION a call, you can expect your service request to be handled quickly and with the right expert on hand. iAUTOMATION can also help and advise you on how to handle the life cycle of your automation solution. When you would like to upgrade, update, or improve your current automation system, iAUTOMATION can help you by setting up a clear approach on how to do it, execute all the work, but also completely take over the work, and make sure your site will remain up to date.

iAUTOMATION at the forefront of industrial digitalization and Industry 4.0

Because digitalization is becoming more important, at iAUTOMATION we have come up with a standard concept for the first steps an industrial company or site can take towards a digitalized automation environment ready for industry 4.0. As we are working with some of the best in class partners, we are very proud to be able to offer our Virtual production platform to companies all over the planet, and in all markets. We have 7 of our own platforms running oil and gas, pharmaceutical and chemical process control systems world wide. We are creating these platforms with our business partners and based on their products:

  • Microsoft Windows Server for user access control and remote management
  • HP Enterprise Servers and network switches for Level 3 management
  • HPE Aruba for switches and wireless systems.
  • VMware ESXi and vShpere
  • Fortigate for firewall and remote monitoring
  • iAUTOMATION NCM for network monitoring and management
  • Veeam for backup and replication
  • Trend micro for anti virus and managed anti virus solutions

We are also helping companies setup their industry 4.0 base designs by setting up Siemens COMOS for them. Using COMOS will help any industrial site become more aware of their plant life cycle, and will make future life cycle operations more easy to execute. Although the initial setup can be quite intimidating, having a working COMOS system for your plant will save you money in future.

Panel Building, process simulation and testing

Because of the recent difficulties in getting panels built, we have setup our own panel building team. We will build control system and IT panels for all our own project in house, which will make it easier to keep control, but also make it easier to keep the automation software in-tune with the panel design. We can also design panels for other companies and applications. iAUTOMATION can design, build and test panels in our workshop. Process simulation for processes can also be done from this location, as we have our testing equipment en simulation systems here. iAUTOMATION can do process simulation on Siemens SIMIT, but also an API level integration of external simulation frameworks can be connected to any Siemens industrial automation system.

Project management 

If you do not have a capable project manager for Digitalisation or automation, we have one who can help you out. Because we organise an in-house prince2 training every year, all of our project managers have a good understanding of project management and of their technical field of work. An iAUTOMATION project manager can be the link you need between the stakeholders and the project team.
