Electrical Automation and Controls

Updated: Aug 19, 2019

Our control systems are automated with industry leading PLC/PAC automation hardware, custom refrigeration control panels built in our UL Listed Panel Shop and programming with the latest industry-leading software to meet all process requirements. We use tried and proven standardized programs for refrigeration controls, which are modified to meet process needs.

Our advanced control system contains a computer HMI system to allow operators and supervisors the ability to control and operate their refrigeration system. We offer manual backup capabilities with all of our automated control systems to ensure refrigeration is operational even if automation goes offline.

Preston will engineer the project and provide a complete set of electrical schematics to show all wiring terminations. At job completion we will provide field wiring drawings for electrical contractors to build the project as well as all as-built completed drawings, PLC and HMI programs and will train your refrigeration operators on the control system.
