Allen-Bradley PLC-5 Upgrades and Migrations

Cybertech completes numerous Allen-Bradley PLC installations and PLC-5 system upgrades in a wide variety of industries each year. PLC-related work makes up approximately 60% of the 450+ projects Cybertech performs each year. Upgrading legacy systems or replacing obsolescent/unsupported hardware represents a large portion of this work.

We can consult on specific aspects of control systems, or we can provide complete turnkey solutions supported with our design, procurement, fabrication, installation and commissioning experience.
