Remove Obsolescence & Upgrade Systems
It’s often comfortable to keep doing what we’ve been doing, but the truth is aging systems can hold operations back at best and present vulnerabilities at worst. Discover how we can make upgrades painless and profitable for your operation.
Upgrading to modern systems provides a whole host of benefits.
Ready for an upgrade?
Many manufacturers are still using systems implemented over 20 years ago, therefore it is highly unlikely they will be compatible with modern operating systems and supporting infrastructure components. Upgrades and patches will no longer be available.
An upgrade using Novotek Solutions’ proven migration tools and services can be painless, low-risk, low-cost, and rapid. iFIX is a proven and reliable technology benefiting from a robust future product development roadmap. Upgrading to a fully supported platform ensures compatibility with the contemporary operating systems and hardware. This significantly reduces risk compared with a legacy system in the event of a software or hardware failure.
The FIX32 SCADA system (originally provided by Intellution and latterly by GE Intelligent Platforms) and the Mitsubishi MX32 OEM version have not been developed since 1999 but are still widely used by manufacturers globally. Learn more about the latest systems on offer from Novotek.
It’s time to retire your obsolete PLCs
Upgrading PLCs can be an entirely pain-free process. These replacements can even be iterative, meaning you can upgrade as little as one PLC at a time and in doing so create an inventory of spares for your other units.
The benefits when introducing a modern platform are:
- Widely available spares
- Product guaranteed with a manufacturer warranty
- Modern connectivity protocols and CPUs
- Smaller physical footprint in your plant
- Greatly reduced power consumption
Our fully-managed service ensures that systems and applications remain up to date. When critical systems become outdated, this creates vulnerabilities to cyber-security attacks. The costs of a successful attack are downtime, data loss, and even being exposed to paying a ransom.
Our expert team complete the patching process from beginning to end, including testing to ensure seamless deployment.
Our Backup Management Service offers protection for your critical systems and data, assuring continuity for your operation in the face of hardware failure or operator error.
Novotek Solutions’ proprietary service is configured and deployed by our expert team to ensure a seamless fit with your individual requirements.
