Quad Plus provides hands-on commissioning, onsite support during the startup process of your integrated system, for all projects. The original project design engineers will ensure the transition from installation to production is smooth. Our goal is to startup, test, calibrate, and ensure production meets your specifications. The added value we bring to your control system integration project is verifying that all controls are calibrated and configured properly. The system is then tested using real materials, and specifications are verified against real-world outputs.
Our goal is to always go the extra mile and exceed your expectations and past experiences with system integrators. The Quad Plus engineers that designed your system will come onsite to complete your requirements during the commissioning process. Quad Plus provides much more than commissioning; we offer all the services in the system integration lifecycle to our local and global customers. Quad Plus is a trusted provider of multi-discipline professional engineering, power services, system integration, repair/service and industrial safety.
Our experienced engineers, that design your system, will come onsite during the commissioning process. They will perform the following steps and checks to ensure the most stable production environment.
The I/O checkout process ensures that PLC and control systems are properly adjusted to meet the required standards.
The entire production process will be tested by the original design engineers and any necessary adjustments will be made.
Next, the drive system is tested and adjusted for optimal performance by our technicians.
Production trials are run to ensure products will meet requirements. Documentation is provided and the final hand off is performed.
The I/O checkout process ensures that wiring is correct, inputs and outputs are working properly, and devices are giving the correct signals. Doing I/O Checkouts during commissioning is a vital part of our process. It is also used to dictate any discrepancies between the drawings, what is physically in the field, and the overall setup for each individual device that is tied into a given system.
Our technicians will perform a visual, mechanical, and electrical inspection to ensure trouble free startup. This tedious process often unravels snags that would otherwise impede the commissioning process during start up. After a complete and thorough inspection is done the system is then powered up to confirm that it meets all specifications based on customer needs, wants, and industry standards.
Once all controllers have been properly configured for a given system, the Drives must be tested and tuned. Experienced engineers check all aspects of the system start to finish, including post commissioning checks, and fine-tuning calibration during occupancy. Depending on the application, drive tuning and testing procedures may vary.
The next step is performance testing, including production trials so that further adjustments can be identified. Often, a “dry run” will be performed to ensure the main line is running properly. Once properly calibrated, a “wet run” will be performed to test the entire production process, make necessary adjustments, and verify products meet the specifications. These set-up trials are a necessary part of our process to ensure the system is running with optimal efficiency.
Finally, during the hand-off stage, we provide a record of the system settings and the performance test results that demonstrate the control systems meet your specifications and required performance levels. Once commissioning activities are wrapped up, we record drawings, complete operation and maintenance manuals, ensure client access, and perform user training and demonstrations.
Our integrated systems engineers will stay with your project during the entire commissioning process--the engineers that design your system are the same engineers who will perform the commissioning. We will verify all controls are calibrated properly and that all your product specifications tested with real-world materials. When you work with Quad Plus, we put our years of industry experience to work for you.
