3 Reasons Remanufactured PLC Parts & Repairs Are Better with Qualitrol

October 16, 2015
3 Reasons Remanufactured PLC Parts & Repairs Are Better with Qualitrol When a PLC part fails, you need to get it replaced or repaired as quickly and affordably as possible. You also need to trust that the part you get will work to the manufacturer’s standards and will work every time for you. New parts can be expensive, so remanufactured parts make a great alternative. Remanufactured PLC Parts from Qualitrol are cost-friendly, of the highest quality, and come with our exclusive 2-year warranty. What sets our process apart when it comes to remanufactured PLC parts and repairs?

Quality Workmanship

All of our repair and remanufacturing technicians are IPC 7711/7712 certified. These certifications ensure our technicians conform to industry standards for repairing, remanufacturing, and modifying electronic assemblies. When working with equipment, each board is repaired to meet OEM specifications, or even to exceed them. We also ensure that each component is lead-free and inspect components visually with a microscope and LCD video display. After they’re inspected, our technicians air blow the component to remove any dust and dirt and we then inspect again for corrosion or damaged traces. We remove any oil or dirt we find with a sonic cleaner. The same components or exact replacements as the OEM are always used. However, if our technicians find any damaged components, they’re removed and replaced with new components. They also repair any damaged traces and through-hole connections. Our quality workmanship enables us to use tools to carefully handle equipment such as surface mount components so that we can safely remove and re-solder them without damaging the rest of the component. Our hand-repaired solder joints are also indistinguishable from the original joints.

Functional Testing of All PLC Parts

Qualitrol International’s testing is one of the components that truly set us apart from our competition. When you need your part to work right the first time and every time after that, there’s no room for error. This is why we incorporate functional testing of all parts into our processes. Each board is tested in a full rack that’s specific to that system. We install CPU modules into the appropriate backplane, run a test program, and thoroughly test all aspects of the CPU performance. The programming and communications ports are tested with external devices for communications. We also test each I/O circuit under load conditions. When testing the I/O, each point on the module is tied to an appropriate device and cycled on and off. For the power supply, we install a unit in a fully-loaded backplane and power it up to check that the appropriate voltages and currents are provided into the backplane. Each I/O slot is loaded with an input and an output module to verify that the bi-directional communication to the CPU is working properly. Finally, we upgrade the firmware on the CPUs and Intelligent Modules to the latest revision. If you don’t want the latest revision, just let us know and we’ll do any revision you request.

PLC Product Packaging and Presentation

When it comes to receiving your repaired or remanufactured part from Qualitrol, you’re receiving the best. This is why we thoroughly inspect each part and hand clean it so it looks new for you, even if it’s just a repair. We also do packaging that matches the OEM’s packaging in addition to putting new labels on each unit. This ensures absolute clarity and zero confusion about what you’re receiving back. The packaging and labels for your repaired or remanufactured PLC part protect its integrity when it comes time for you to install it. We also include data sheets with each module for your convenience. Getting your parts repaired quickly with high-quality PLC workmanship, complete functional testing of all parts, and a great product presentation is something you won’t find anywhere else. Let Qualitrol International’s Remanufacturing and Repairing Processes handle your PLC part repairs. If you’re considering remanufactured parts, know that you’ll get the best with Qualitrol’s workmanship and 2-year warranty.
