PLC’s are the workhorses of industrial automation. They are essentially a ruggedized industrial computer with a real-time operating system and real world Input / Output connections.

A key reason for poorly performing equipment is due to poor software, something that is at times very hard for the client to initially detect. Our methods and testing requirements ensure an optimal performance from the automation equipment with a minimal number of “bugs” or “glitches”.

Downey Engineering specializes 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. Plant tagging references are consistent through from the P&ID diagrams to the PLC code.
