Automation and Control Vital in Turn-Key Conveyor Systems by Alfacon Solutions

Electrical controls are the most commonly outsourced item in turn-key conveyor solutions. Development of control systems begin with the creation of a Control Functional Specification (CFS) according to Alfacon Solutions. The company works to manufacturer’s specifications to develop the document which defines the system operation and devices required for the control of the system. Once approved, this document will become the basis for the design, programming, development, and commissioning of the control system.

The Alfacon Solutions electrical engineers design the system, built and tested to current industry standards in the electrical shop and commissioned on site by Alfacon Solutions trained start up team.

Alfacon Solutions provides in-house electrical engineering services and manufactures the control panels and systems. Every control panel and system manufactured by Alfacon Solutions leaves the shop certified, which saves the end user a considerable amount of time and effort.
