Process Control Systems



SCADA Systems

ITS has an outstanding reputation in the design and implementation of a wide range of visualisation, HMI and SCADA systems. With over 19 years' experience in programming SCADA solutions for customers in the Automotive, Aviation, Chemical, Food & Beverage, Medical Device, Petrochemical, Pharmaceutical, Oil and Gas, Tobacco and Utilities industries, you can be confident in our SCADA engineering capabilities.

Wind Farm SCADA Systems

ITS offers ICONICS’ wind farm SCADA systems, enabling users to monitor and control remote operations and turbines in real-time. Users can access accurate, up-to-the-minute information including live weather and meteorological updates as well as fully configurable Key Performance Indicators (KPIs). Comparing production reports against historical information helps towards achieving accurate forecasts.

Programmable Logic Controllers

ITS designs and implements Programmable Logic Controllers (PLCs), ranging from single unit devices to large distributed rack-based systems for customers in the Automotive, Aviation, Chemical, Food and Beverage Medical Device, Petrochemical, Pharmaceutical, Oil and Gas and Utilities industries.

PLC Programmers

Fluctuations in PLC programming demands can be solved by using Industrial Technology Systems Ltd's (ITS) flexible Programmable Logic Controller (PLC) programmer service, on a short, medium or long term basis. An experienced PLC programmer from ITS can provide a company with immediate support for a day, a week, a month or longer, thanks to a service designed to address variations in work requirements.

Distributed Control Systems

Complementing its process control capabilities, ITS also offers expertise in Distributed Control Systems (DCS), designed to monitor and control distributed equipment across large, dynamic manufacturing and processing sites.

Batch Systems

ITS’ Batch Systems provide automated batch management including recipe development, batch management and execution, production scheduling, equipment performance monitoring, production history and material tracking features. The Batch Systems are designed to improve batch scheduling, batch consistency and the automatic collection of real-time, reliable and accurate batch event data.

Safety Systems

ITS’ process control team specialises in providing IEC 61508 and IEC 61511/3 compliant Fire and Gas Systems (F&G) and Emergency Shutdown Systems (ESD), to safety critical industries such as Chemical, Nuclear, Oil and Gas, Power Generation and Utilities.  

Fire & Gas Systems (F&G)

ITS' Fire and Gas Systems (F&G) are designed to protect the plant and plant personnel from hazardous conditions. By monitoring areas where a fire or build up of a potentially flammable gas may occur, the Fire and Gas Systems (F&G) can detect hazardous events, alert personnel and initiate timely actions in order to minimise the consequences of a critical event.

Emergency Shutdown Systems

ITS' Emergency Shutdown Systems (ESDs) are designed to minimise the consequences of hazardous conditions. ITS offers Emergency Shutdown Systems to Safety Integrity Level (SIL) 3, in accordance with the IEC 61508, IEC 61511 and IEC 61513 international safety standards.

NT-Based SCADA System Support and Upgrades

Many companies are currently running on old hardware and systems, with catastrophic delays potentially just days away. To eliminate the risks involved in running obsolete NT-based equipment and optimise uptime, ITS provides a range of innovative NT-based SCADA support and upgrade packages.

FEED Studies

Whether you are looking into replacing an existing control system or investing in a control system design for a new build facility, ITS' team is on hand to assist and guide you through the process of Front End Engineering Design (FEED). ITS can provide experienced engineers to carry out FEED studies. ITS' engineers are completely product independent and therefore working in conjunction with the customer's project management team, ITS can provide an independent tailored FEED study and solution. 

PICS Pro Simulation Software

PICS Pro is a highly intuitive plant simulation package from SST, used by Industrial Technology Systems Ltd (ITS) to accurately test and debug plant control and SCADA systems through all stages of the project lifecycle. PICS Pro simulates digital and analogue plant I/O and groups them into device objects such as valves or reactor vessels. Using PICS Pro, ITS’ engineers can replace all of the switch boxes and lights, and their associated time-consuming and costly wiring and testing, with a meaningful dynamic display.

PLC Training Courses

With over 20 years experience in the design and implementation of industrial automation, control and management information systems, Industrial Technology Systems Ltd’s (ITS) engineers share their engineering skills, expertise and experiences through a range of PLC training courses. These courses are designed for engineers and technicians with limited programming skills and experience.

ANSI/ISA-88 (S88) Consultancy

ANSI/ISA-88 (S88), the international standard for flexibility in manufacturing and processing industries, was introduced in 1995 to improve the production flexibility of the batch processing industry. Although the standard was designed for batch plants, the principles can also be applied to flexible manufacturing practices, both discrete and continuous. ITS’ knowledge and experience in the application of ISA-88 enables the team to offer advice and consultancy in its application.

Support Services

ITS offers a range of process control system support services to minimise downtime and increase process reliability and efficiency. The services include the provision of reliable and technically competent engineers, Service Level Agreements tailored to meet your company’s needs, and reliable call out support services.
