Consumer Goods Facility Reaches Out to Top PLC Automation Companies for ControlLogix Conversion

Outdated PLC5 controls couldn’t support a vision system and reject station upgrade. EPIC converted the PLC5 I/O, replaced the processors and established communication to a Honeywell DCS system with ControlLogix. It is critical to partner with experienced PLC automation companies for automation plant conversions.
