EASI, Inc.'s primary market focuses on Programmable Logic and Automation Controllers (PLC's and PAC's) design and programming services. EASI has extensive experience with the Allen-Bradley Logix family of PAC's, including ControlLogix and CompactLogix, as well as PLC5, SLC500, and legacy PLC2 programmable controllers. The company owns a variety Allen-Bradley PLC hardware used for project development and testing. EthernetIP, ControlNet, DeviceNet, and Data Highway Plus (DH+) equipment is resident in our office allowing network applications to be thoroughly tested prior to site installation and process startup.
The company’s relationships with Allen-Bradley and Rockwell Software provide EASI with access to tools and exposure to the latest technologies available from Rockwell Automation.
EASI’s PLC services range from control system emergency support, program modifications, program development to "design-build" projects. PLC experience goes beyond Allen-Bradley, to include GE, Modicon, Siemens, Omron, Automation Direct, and legacy Honeywell. Control application experience includes PID Loops, Batch, Sequence, Motion, Packaging, and Material Handling. Applied PLC programming languages (formats) include Ladder Logic, SFC, Structured Text, and Function Block.
EASI, Inc.'s in-house control equipment includes Allen-Bradley ControlLogix and CompactLogix systems (complete with processors, I/O, and servo controls), DeviceNet system, and Foundation Fieldbus equipment.
EASI has also gained experience with design, configuration and support of ControlNet, DeviceNet and Foundation Fieldbus networks. Proper specification, design, and installation of control and interface networks have become key roles in EASI's project support.
EASI personnel are trained to design and develop control logic based on "ISA-S88.01" "Control Module" and "Equipment Module" specifications. This provides for consistent, re-useable, modular program implementation. The many projects projects developed using this architecture are documented with a "project database" which also serves to support creation of the PLC and HMI databases. The database is turned over to the client upon project completion to aid in project support.
