AdvanTech Corporation provides turnkey services to our customers in a variety of industries. Turnkey services include supply of:

 

SUBMITTALS

 

CONTROL PANEL DESIGN AND FABRICATION
All AdvanTech supplied control panels and enclosures are fabricated at our UL registered facility under the strict supervision of AdvanTech's project team.

Customer’s approval of submittals, bills of material, panel design, panel layout drawings and schematics is a prerequisite for the start of purchasing and panel fabrication activities.

All panels are constructed with strict adherence to the applicable UL and Nema classifications and environmental conditions.

At the conclusion of fabrication all panels undergo rigorous testing by AdvanTech’s project team. Only following satisfactory conclusion of internal testing, the fabricated panel is ready for a formal Factory Acceptance Test and for shipping.

 

CAD
CAD based wiring diagrams, loop drawings, schematics, panel layout and “As Built” drawings.

 

INSTRUMENTATION, HARDWARE AND SOFTWARE PROCUREMENT
Smart and efficient procurement is an integral part of a successful organization. AdvanTech’s purchasing techniques are designed to enhance our competitive advantage while reducing project cost and thus enhancing the project value for our Customers.

AdvanTech’s close relationships with manufacturers and suppliers of various control, monitoring and instrumentation hardware and software products assures the best possible terms and prices and guarantees AdvanTech priority deliveries.

 

PLC and DCS PROGRAMMING
In our continuously evolving world of automation, staying current and proficient in correctly employing PLC and DCS systems can only be accomplished by having constant hands-on involvement in a variety of control projects. AdvanTech’s engineers annually work on dozens of different projects. Many of these projects employ different hardware, different software and different communications media. Our engineers must become familiar with emerging programming methods such as IEC-1131.

AdvanTech employs a highly proficient group of engineers having extensive experience programming a variety of popular PLC and DCS systems. Regardless of our Customer’s hardware selection (Allen-Bradley, Bristol Babcock, General Electric, Modicon, Opto 22, Omron, Siemens, Square D, Telemecanique, Emerson, Yokogawa and many others) our engineers have the background, training, expertise and the tools (many developed in-house) necessary to produce reliable, efficient, fully commented and documented code.

 

SCADA/HMI CONFIGURATION
Our engineers are skilled in configuring and programming a variety of popular Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition (SCADA) and Human-Machine Interface (HMI) systems including Genesis, InTouch, iFix, PowerView, RSView32, PanelView, Cimplicity, FactoryFloor, LabView and others. The supplied functionality may include:

Creative, realistic and user friendly graphics with intuitive navigation

Reliable alarm detection and state-of-the-art alarm annunciation which may incorporate natural voice, fax, telephone, email, marquee and other media

High speed historical data collection utilizing Customer selectable databases such as Oracle, SQL, Access, etc.

Real-time and historical data replay using, a variety of trend techniques and graphics

Automatic or “on-demand” report generation using real-time, historical, calculated and user entered data

Recipe generation and processing

Security configuration to prevent unauthorized access, restrict functionality and prevent modifications.

Internet or Intranet based remote monitoring and supervisory control

Interface with a variety of planned and legacy systems

On projects where standard, off-the-shelf tools to achieve required system functionality and performance are unavailable, AdvanTech engineers are fully skilled incorporating code developed utilizing the latest programming languages such as Visual Basic, Java, HTML, XML, C++ or C#.
AdvanTech engineers are also skilled users of all the latest Microsoft programs, tools and operating systems such as Windows 2000, Windows XP, Windows CE, .Net, embedded operating systems, Access, Excel, ActiveX, etc.

 

SYSTEM SECURITY IMPLEMENTATION

FDA COMPLIANT VALIDATION DOCUMENTATION

 

OPERATING AND MAINTENANCE MANUALS

 

FIELD INSTALLATION ASSISTANCE

 

FIELD START-UP AND COMMISSIONING

 

FACTORY AND FIELD ACCEPTANCE TESTING
All products and services supplied by AdvanTech undergo several levels of rigorous testing:

All AdvanTech supplied components are required to have manufacturer documented test procedures regarding classification, reliability, manufacturing practices and MTBF values.

All the project drawings are reviewed by the Project Engineers followed by the Project Manager.

All software development undergoes several stages of internal testing using simulated field signals. Meetings with Customers are scheduled on a periodic basis to critique and validate the implementation.

All panels and enclosures are tested by the project team at the conclusion of fabrication.

An integrated Factory Acceptance Test (FAT) is conducted after the receipt of all the hardware and completion of software development and fabrication. FAT is conducted using written test procedures specifically developed for the project.

Field-testing is conducted following completion of field installation and start-up. Field-testing follows the same written test procedures used during the FAT.

Following successful completion of all the field tests, AdvanTech supplies closing documents (certifications, “As-Built drawings, etc.), as required.

 

INSTRUMENTATION CALIBRATION

 

IN-HOUSE AND ON-SITE TRAINING

 

PROJECT MANAGEMENT
We believe that skilled project management is critical to the success of every project. AdvanTech’s project managers are degreed engineers with decades of multifaceted automation experience. Prior to becoming project managers they performed similar “hands on” engineering functions, which they now manage.

Since AdvanTech employs a seasoned project engineering staff capable of working on a variety of complex assignments independently, our project managers’ responsibilities within the project team include the following:

Establishing and maintaining of schedules

Acting as sounding board for the project team

Assisting in review of drawings, documents and programs

Keeping track of purchasing and other expenditures

Customer liaison and Customer relations

Supplier liaison and Supplier relations
