ABOUT

 

Direct Automation is a premier provider of industrial automation. We apply our education, experience, connections, and training to complete customized automation projects for your automation needs.  We know from years of listening to customers that your needs come first.  Your project can be completed with the most advanced automation techniques available using today’s technology with Direct Automation.  But if you want to keep it simple, we will do that for you.  As your automation partner, we will balance technology with your budget and ease of use needs to get the automation project completed the way you want it done.

We have successfully completed hundreds of automation projects for our customers.  We have experience in many platforms of automation and understand that each brand has its strong and weak points.  If you have Siemens, Emerson, Foxboro, Rockwell Allen Bradley, ABB, Schnieder Modicon, Yokagawa, or Honeywell (or any combination of those) we can help you.  We work with PLC and DCS projects, and we work to integrate the two seamlessly when needed.

If you need a better way to manage your data, make sure you ask us about Direct Automation’s “Pi in the Sky”.  This trademarked service can make all of your data automatically upload to a historian from your PLCs, DCS, market, financial, and 40 other sources to be stored indefinitely.  Your data can than be accessible from the cloud and searchable from the time of installation and used to send out automatic reports and alerts.  You can use this to make graphical displays that show operators, engineers, or managers your Key Process Inputs so everyone stays up to date on information.

If you already have an automation system and would just like to add a feature, we can help with an add-on (Sequencing, APC, OSI PI).  Our clients use us for new and expansion plant projects, 24/7 service and support, and legacy DCS migrations.  We are proficient on all on the following major platforms: Emerson DeltaV, Siemens Apacs, Rockwell/Allen Bradley, Schneider Modicon, ABB System 6 and others. We look forward to working with you in the near future.

Direct Automation will assist you with the sale of your legacy equipment after it is uninstalled from a DCS migration.  We can also install used parts if you are looking for used legacy equipment.  We currently have ABB System Six and Siemens APACS DCS equipment for sale.
