s5-s7 migration

At Cotmac, we take special pride in being efficient always – be it customer service or relationships. It has been an uphill task to create our base of loyal customers over the last 25 years.

And to do this, we realise that providing good and prompt service is a basic requirement. Treat customers the way you would want to be treated, and they will keep coming back.

“In customers growth, lies our growth” – based on this philosophy, we have been helping our customers from a varied range of businesses, to upgrade their existing systems with the latest technology. When maintaining and servicing an outdated system becomes expensive, we advise our customers to invest in new technology, to help open up potential opportunities, which might not be possible with old hardware and software concepts.

Our speciality is to offer smooth transition from the old to the new, with minimum machine downtime, and maximum help rendered in terms of end user training etc.

One of many such stories I would like to share with you, is about how we did an amazing transition from Siemens S5 to S7 PLC system, at an esteemed customer’s site. They are manufacturers of exhaust systems for the automotive industry. They were facing problems of spares and hence servicing of their outdated system, which did not even have HMI facility for aiding troubleshooting. For a job that would have normally taken few days to complete, our expert and dedicated team performed a record breaking act of completing this job in less than 8 hours. Right from removing the old S5, to replacement with S7, internal wiring, adding relay board, migrating previous software and creating backup, setting up the HMI, performing I/O tests and handing over to customer – we did it in a matter of 8 hours.

We are always looking forward to such exciting challenges, and honing our skills to deliver solutions in lesser and lesser time.
