Should I upgrade my Series One PLC system to a newer product?
November 27th, 2018
By the late 1980s, the Series One was the top selling small-form-factor PLC in the world. Its exceptional reliability and performance made it ideal for a myriad of applications, and, because of its versatility and robust design, there typically has not been any reason to replace it. In today’s manufacturing world, however, where Ethernet communications, high-speed processors, and Windows-based programming software are all commonplace, the Series One just seems out of place.
While your maintenance team might say "if it isn’t broken, don’t fix it," management is concerned about downtime should the Series One finally expire, and you do not have the time to engineer a seamless conversion that minimizes lost production time. If this sounds familiar, then you are the customer we had in mind when we developed our Series One conversion process. Qualitrol International provides a conversion program to replace your Series One PLC system that is fast, cost-effective and let’s you take advantage of modern GE Fanuc PLC technology, specifically the 90-30 PLC system.
