Our approach is to use first principles in design and to leverage client knowledge in particular industries. We find that cross-industry experience is invaluable in solving complex challenges.
Downey Engineering can deliver a range of services across your automation requirements.
We view our invitation into your business as a strategic partnership where we apply our control systems knowledge to your process knowledge and deliver a superior outcome resulting in a competitive advantage for you, our client.

Early-stage involvement in strategic planning is crucial to project success with Automation. Choosing a trusted systems integrator can mean the difference between a successful project and one where all the pieces just don’t seem to fit.
We draw on experiences gained over many years across different markets to provide a range of consulting services.
Electrical design is a key component of our project delivery. It is the knowledge and understanding of what electrical equipment and instrumentation are required to efficiently control and drive an industrial process. It is the element that links the real world equipment with the software that controls it. It is perhaps, one of our major strengths as a "Systems Integrator" to be able to combine quality hardware design with quality software.
As an independent, vendor agnostic systems integrator, we can recommend and program PLC’s, RTU’s and HMI’s from many different vendors from small, compact and low-cost units through to multi-processor systems with thousands of I/O points.
Downey Engineering specialises in advanced coding techniques incorporating heavily documented and highly structured code. It is our philosophy to leave our clients with a fully documented, easy to maintain system.
Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition systems are the bridge between the plant and its operation. They provide a view of the system, allow operator interaction, log and historise variables and in general become a very useful tool in refining performance and processes. The configuration of these systems and the standards employed are critical to their usefulness.
Years of experience in this field allows us to deliver high-quality systems at economical prices. We achieve this through the use of re-usable code and objects along with ongoing training and development.
