Systems Integration

GPS Links is a Siemens Solution Partner with expertise in S7300, TIA, WinCC SCADA and WinCCoA enterprise level SCADA, and more than twenty years experience working with multiple Rockwell Automation, Mitsubishi, Omron and Schneider systems.

We integrate control systems from individual PLC applications to large-scale networks for industrial processes including water and effluent treatment, power generation, mining and quarrying, and manufacturing in the automotive, food and beverage, and packaging sectors.

Our early engagement and integrated design processes offer customers technical insight and analysis, as well as cost reduction. A parallel approach to electrical and network design aims to minimise physical infrastructure, making significant reductions in cabling, connections and kiosks for substantial savings on materials, engineering and installation costs.

Safety functionality and quality

Software and Systems Testing

Software and Systems Testing

As the key to operational performance, GPS employ a range of testing methodologies to ensure that software and systems fully meet the requirements for safety, functionality, quality and integrity.

Simulation testing allows complex algorithms to be safely tested by replicating the performance characteristics of drives, actuators and sensors on the bench, avoiding risks to people plant and environment, and reducing the risk of changes and modifications further down the line.

Software is tested in-depth on and off the panel at FAT to ensure it meets the customer specifications and software functionality defined in the FDS document.

At commissioning, GPS engineers follow exacting checking and documentation procedures to ensure that software, systems and hardware are installed correctly and perform as expected in real-world conditions.

Every cable, network signal, device address and setting is tested against actual operating parameters to precisely calibrate and tune control functions for optimum process efficiency.

Completion of Site-Systems Acceptance Testing validates and documents each test including alarms, emergency shutdown and standby, and full operation in automatic and manual modes.

Protecting critical applications and managing change
