Design and Fabrication of Electrical and Control Systems

Dedicated Professionals.  Expert Solutions.

Process and Data Automation provides turnkey design and fabrication of electrical and control systems. Designs, manufacturing oversight, and pre-ship testing are handled by our dedicated Design team: this is work they do each and every day!  From simple, individual drawing updates through comprehensive documentation packages for projects with dozens of unique enclosures we can provide the solution for you.

Customer-focused design packages

Our team has experience working with a large number of client and regulatory standards.  We have developed broad internal standards that we can use in lieu of a client-supplied specification.  Our standards include detailed Factory Acceptance Testing (FAT) documentation for every enclosure we provide.  This ensures that your panels arrive at your site in a true “ready for installation” condition.

Control System Documentation

For All Clients:

Do you have accurate documentation for your systems or do you have a mix of paper and electronic that span multiple revisions over time?  Accurate system information helps you:

  • Ensure that your team can work safely around your controlled equipment
  • Troubleshoot more efficiently
  • Effectively manage change and future expansion

Process and Data Automation’s Design team can evaluate what you have, determine what is accurate and current, and compile all of the information into comprehensive, up-to-date system documentation packages.

For OEMs and Machine Builders: 
Do you have applications that require extensive documentation packages in timeframes that are difficult to deliver?  We have the staff and tools required to augment your team and ensure that your equipment ships with complete information. We can work with you as simple staff extension to develop AutoCAD sets from your annotated prints or provide turnkey design and drawing services.
