SCADA + HMI SYSTEMS
With the rapid advance of PC technology, SCADA and HMIs have
become an integral part of most integrated control systems and the
primary interface for the process operator.
High definition complex interactive graphics provide sophisticated ease of the control
process as well as data acquisition and monitoring. Our experience ranges from the advent of
SCADA/HMI systems to the latest technology available today, providing bespoke tailor-made
sophisticated control across all industry sectors.
We have considerable experience when it comes to upgrading legacy systems by either
converting or upgrading the existing configuration or, re-engineering the existing system to
provide an up to date state of the art control system.
DCS or “Distributed Control System” provides highly scalable solutions
for Process Industries.
We can select the most cost effective solution for the application and have the experience to
design and build solutions for Continuous, Batch and Hybrid processes. These processes are conigured,
maintained and lexible from a central location to the highest distribution of I/O devices to suit the
application (normal, hazardous, special instrumentation, safety…etc).
MES/ERP + MIS
A major area for potential improvement is the collection, collation,
analysis and historical storage of the data that is available across
manufacturing plants via the installed base of automation systems.
Yet even today many organisations are not using this data to its full potential. The ability to easily
measure and drive production eficiency improvements, identify where energy is being wasted, as
well as the ability to link the MES/ERP + MIS system to Factory Automation to track and streamline
processes and provide management visibility locally or remotely. Using PC’s or hand held devices
has never been easier.
Essential for Sustainable Manufacturing, Iconsys has the knowledge and capability to take you there.
Essential for Track and Trace as well as product inspection and quality
Camera and digital inspection systems are now an integral part of modern control systems and
essential for high speed decision making in manufacturing and logistics. Iconsys has the knowledge
and experience of coniguring, networking and integrating camera and inspection systems for
a complete solution.
Machine vision implemented with the latest RFID tagging system provide the robust and reliable
tracking solutions for the most onerous high speed applications.
Whatever the industry or application, electric motors are required
to drive plant and equipment. These are not always driven by
sophisticated varible speed drive solutions; it is often advantageous
and more cost effective to control these motors from dedicated
Motor Control Centres (MCC).
We provide MCCs either as a stand alone system or integrated into the larger project solution.
We design, manufacture, install and commission standard or bespoke MCCs, incorporating
the hardware of the world’s leading suppliers, to suit the application and environment.
We take into account international design standards and certiication, ingress protection and
segregation requirements in order to provide the solution to meet all needs.
Whether it be a single point-to-point communication project or
complex multi-drive, SCADA, PLC and multi-device automation solution,
ﬂexibility of communication protocol is critical to ensure that all types of
hardware communicate efﬁciently.
We have experience of all communication platforms and protocols. Networks have traditionally
utilised copper and ibre optic media but now include the latest wireless radio, leaky coax, mobile and
New installations can be high performance, Safe, Wireless and with complex multi-devices. While retroit
projects also include networks to obscure legacy systems.
The growth of Industrial Robots across many industries has been
extensive and rapid.
Robots are critical components to ensure quality, speed and repeatability in manufacturing.
These can be traditional, heavy duty Robots as used across the Automotive industry with tool changer
systems through to smaller Delta robots for rapid pick and place applications.
Iconsys can provide Robot integration services for the major Robot manufacturers (programming,
commissioning, teaching, network interfacing with supervisory control systems).
ICONSYS supply Transformer Rectiﬁers for industrial and harsh
environments. This includes diverse applications such as on-board
military or FPSO ships, in conﬁned spaces within Oil Rig Platforms to less
onerous Power Stations.
Applications include Water Cooled Transformer Rectiiers with Titanium Water to Air Heat
Exchangers for ATEX Zone 1 and Zone 2 areas which require Ingress Levels up to IP66.
Typically these would be Stainless Steel 316 Cubicles which are also full load tested in our in house
heat test chamber at ambient temperatures up to 50 deg C.
Typically Oil and Gas solutions would be Ex ‘P’, Purge and Pressurised units and can include
PLC Control Panels as Ex ‘nR’ units. Currents to 4000 Amps with Voltages up to 200 V DC have
In harsh environments where mild steel cabinets are accepted, these are typically marine
standard wet paint inished assemblies which can be supplied to local or international standards
such as Norsok.
Iconsys can offer Automation System Simulation services from several
powerful solutions including WinMOD and PICS.
Simulation software simulates real-world systems and machines controlled by PLC or DCS
systems. The entire system (communications, sequencing/ interlocking, HMI/SCADA, and alarms) can
be tested, all emergency faults can be veriied and operators trained prior to the system
With Simulation software, control system errors can be swiftly identiied in the ofice, allowing
new processes to be implemented quickly and accurately thereby avoiding the high cost of
production downtime. The software allows the creation of a dynamic model on a PC that duplicates the
behaviour of the I/O devices, providing the control system with simulated device feedback.
The main beneits of simulation software is identifying and eliminating system problems early in
the project cycle, reducing the Hot commissioning time on site, project delays, risk reduction, right
irst time and potentially overall cost reduction.
