Assessment and Design

Assessing the current network topology is the first step towards a reliable and capable system. QCA can take your existing network or green field project and create a plan to move forward with segregated networks to include devices for PLC’s, HMI’s, Servers and Workstations, and commercial connectivity.

Industrial Historians and Reporting Systems

Production systems generate many points of data that can be useful to keep a history. QCA Systems uses industrial software to store data with proven data compression and longevity. Though anyone can put numbers into a database, custom solutions quickly create unmanageable large databases that take forever to produce usable data. QCA’s experience with industrial historians allow you to learn from others mistakes without having to go through them yourself.

Reporting takes the data from processes and creates something that can be used to make decisions. QCA produces webpage based reports that are easy to access and view, while using standard, open source languages.
