Esys Automation, an engineering and manufacturing systems integration firm, today announced the successful upgrade for the Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition System (SCADA) for the Bureau of Reclamation in Yuma, AZ. Created in 1999 to provide engineering excellence in electrical, mechanical and controls services, Esys’ services are diversified across many industries including supporting many Government agencies. The firm’s growth and sustainment realized over ten years of “collective talent, collaborative effort and consistent results.”
The Bureau of Reclamation required the upgrade to their Senator Wash and Imperial Dam facilities outside Yuma, Arizona. The old system was running on PC based hardware that was outdated, unreliable and unsupported. The engineering team at Esys took on the challenge to help modernized their critical power generation equipment. The result is an up to date system that is fully supported and reliable.
Esys supplied the facilities with new computers running the latest Microsoft operating system in addition to the latest Cimplicity HMI Server with Proficy Global Care software. The Cimplicity application runs on a desktop computer and is used as the interface between the operators and the control of the pumps and gates at the facilities. Our integration team completed the upfront software engineering conversion. Complete software testing occurred at our Auburn Hills office to ensure a smooth transition once the equipment was deployed to the facilities at Yuma. Once on-site, Esys executed a seamless transition from the outdated hardware to the new hardware and tested the communication to the existing Programmable Logic Controller (PLC) without incident or interruption. Our team provided training and support to the on-site operators. The project was completed on-time resulting in a customer satisfied with our work.
Esys is a progressive company that operates in an open book management environment that shares success with the employees. This approach has provided Esys with a tremendous core of talented engineers that consistently provide customers with the type of service and products they expect and deserve.
