Control System Integrators Association's (CSIA) definition of a system integrator is:
"...an independent value-added engineering organization (or profit-loss division) that focuses on industrial control and information systems, manufacturing execution systems, and plant automation that require application knowledge and technical expertise for sales, design, implementation, installation, commissioning, and support."
This is one specialty that Array can provide. Array interfaces to almost any system. We have interfaced many systems, even old legacy systems to display/report process information.

Fully Automatic Boiler Plant:

Network Glitches at a Utility Plant:
One of our power customers had issues with their network. PLC was tripping the plant due to overworked network. Array came in and assessed the problems. We found numerous issues with the SCADA System and Network Architecture. We made recommendations to simplify their system. The customer allowed us to perform our recommendations, and the plant is running great.....knock on wood…
