Warehouse Control System

From simple to complex warehouse control systems

Conveyor Networks provide warehouse control systems. We design and install bespoke, fully integrated control solutions across all types of interfaces for mechanical and electrical operations. We design and code control software in-house ranging from simple systems to complex larger scale projects.

Services we provide

HMI

A HMI (Human Machine Interface) presents data to a human operator who can then monitor and control the process. Data acquisition is made possible through sensors placed throughout the process or facilities. To relay data from the remotely located sensors, different hardware and software systems utilize various open communication protocols, such as OPC, to communicate data to the HMI.

SCADA

SCADA (Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition) is a real time system for monitoring and controlling industrial and manufacturing processes, and facilities. Several subsystems combine to make up an entire SCADA solution.

 

SCADA systems include hardware and software components. The hardware gathers and feeds data into a computer that has SCADA software installed. The computer then processes this data and presents it in a timely manner. SCADA also records and logs all events into a file stored on a hard disk or sends them to a printer. SCADA gives a visual representation of the device status out on the plant i.e. motors sensors etc. and can display faults and generate alarms to allow operators to diagnose faults effectively.

 

Conveyor Networks can either integrate with your existing SCADA system or install one as part of the overall controls solution.

System architecture design

Designing a complex system involves bringing together a number of different layers of design in a process known as layering. This is fundamental to ensure that at the various levels the appropriate controls can all communicate with each other properly. At Conveyor Networks we are experts in designing intelligent systems and understanding their complexities. We ensure that all aspects of the system can all speak to each other and function effectively. We are partners of major network suppliers such as Siemens (Profi-bus / ASi / ASiSafe) and Rockwell (Ethernet P / Controlnet / Devicenet).

PLC software development

At Conveyor Networks we are proud to have the in-house expertise to design and code control software. Our capabilities are across all types of interfaces, whether they be Operator or Human Machine Interfaces (HMI) or Graphical User Interfaces (GUI). Our Software engineers develop and in house test all PLC coding before delivery to site ensuring a smooth trouble free installation.

 

E-design

Conveyor Networks offer a bespoke design solution for all aspects of electrical & control design to produce either standalone solutions or seamless integration into existing systems.

 

Our engineers have extensive experience across multiple platforms including industry leaders Siemens and Rockwell automation, this allows us to offer complex solutions to meet your business needs.

 

Our designs are produced using AutoCad and are in accordance with BS7671 IEE Wiring Regulations.

Panel build

We can build and design control panels that are robust and meet varying requirements across a range of industries. We can either use standard off the shelf enclosures or custom build to your required specifications.

Installation, commissioning and support

We are specialists in advising on, modifying and implementing mechanical and electrical installation. On the mechanical side of things, we will install conveyors, machinery and steelwork. For electrical installation, we can install your electrical and control system and provide you with all the required test certificates such as IEE, NICEIC. Our strategic partnerships with Siemens and Rockwell give us access to the very best systems.
