Whether you are experiencing component failures that are resulting in unplanned downtime, you have unmet capability needs (e.g., faster data exchange with HMI/SCADA), or you are simply concerned about the continued sustainability of your aging control system, it is probably time to consider modernizing your control system. 

CTI offers a hybrid approach that we call Smart ModernizationTM -- a combination of low-risk upgrades and strategic migrations resulting in a modern, efficient, high-performing control system at a low cost with minimal risk, downtime or reprogramming.  

  • Smart Modernization delivers the benefits of a system migration without all the cost and downside risk
  • Smart Modernization is a planned—often phased — approach to improve system reliability, performance, and capability at reduced cost and with minimal downtime,  engineering, reprogramming and recommissioning
  • Smart Modernization leverages and expands the existing automation system infrastructure
  • Smart Modernization keeps the company’s intellectual property intact so that operation and maintenance remain consistent resulting in minimal, if any, retraining and seamless operation for system operators and maintenance personnel

**For a limited time, CTI is offering a Smart Modernization Refresh program that includes a free on-site assessment to help you determine where your control system(s) might be most vulnerable to age-related failures or technological obsolescence and a prioritized Smart Modernization Refresh plan to modernize or "refresh" your system(s) over time.
