If a PLC should fail, it will take a great deal of time to restore the system, and there will be losses due to the shutdown of operations. We recommend preventive maintenance of PLCs before this happens. We can replace old PLCs that have been discontinued with the latest models, or replace PLCs with those from other manufacturers, so please contact us.
Information needed for PLC replacement
- PLC manufacturer and model
- Model of input/output/advanced function unit
- Manufacturer and model of touch panel
- Specifications of communication and network
This is the minimum information that is required to proceed with the replacement of the PLC.
Documents and data required for PLC replacement
- Electrical drawings of existing equipment
- Ladder diagram of PLC
- Touch panel data
- Photographs of existing equipment and control panels
Having detailed documents and data can shorten the time for preliminary investigation and study, and allow for a smooth response. In many cases, there are no documents or data left for older equipment. In such cases, we will conduct a preliminary survey to understand the current situation and back up the data.

PLC and control equipment replacement work
We recommend replacement for obsolete or aging PLCs, touch panels, servo amplifiers, inverters, and other control devices before they break down.
Points to note when replacing the PLC
If the equipment to be replaced is communicating with other equipment via a network, it is necessary to stop the equipment under the network. In addition, if the communication specifications of the PLC to be replaced are changed, the network may not be able to communicate, and in the worst case, the equipment may stop operating. In order to prevent this from happening, it is necessary to conduct a preliminary survey and carefully understand the current situation.
