Rockwell Automation has announced that Perth-based Auto Control Systems (ACS) will be the first Recognised System Integrator in the Power Discipline in the South Pacific.
ACS is a provider of industrial automation as well as systems and services in Australia.
Industries that include mining, utilities, food and beverage, building management and oil and gas are all covered by ACS. It provides engineering services with expertise in power control, electrical installation, safety, network studies, packaging and power conditioning that must meet a level of operational excellence, application knowledge and customer satisfaction.
ACS’s primary focus is providing Low Voltage MCC solutions that are assisted by the Rockwell Automation Integrated Architecture Platform.
To complement, the Rockwell Automation System Integrator program helps educate and lend qualified partners who are able to solve challenges that may occur during production, as well as coming up with the best possible solution.
Business manager of Power Control Business at Rockwell Automation, Rosanne Sabiston, spoke about the relationship with ACS as a Recognised System Integrator and how she is excited to extend the partnership.
“The Australian marketplace is very demanding in what they require in a MCC with each geography and industry having their own specific requirements. The ultimate benefit of the SI program for customers is timely, localised support and integration with the backing of a global supplier that already complies with AS/NZS 61439.2:2016,” said Rosanne.
“We have seen increased demand for our CENTERLINE 2500 MCC solution and a natural evolution of that is providing, educating and up skilling a local SI to be able to configure and support these systems as we roll them out.”
ACS has a 3000 square meter workshop that features a Switchboard building facility, a 10 tonne crane and a fully operational, demonstration CENTERLINE 2500 MCC unit. The purpose of the unit is to allow customers to see the CENTERLINE 2500 MCC’s potential and how it can be personalised for whatever applications they need.
John Watts, manager at ACS, says the partnership has been in the works for a long time and he’s looking forward giving customers the service and “know-how” that Rockwell Automation is so well known for.
“Being the first Low Voltage Motor Control Centre Recognised System Integrator for our region is a natural progression of our existing collaboration with Rockwell Automation. It is something we have been working towards and our customers will benefit from the global reach and reliability of Rockwell Automation together with our local know-how, service and support,” said John.
As ACS is a well-established brand that excels in motor control and programming, it will help customers implement new technologies and innovations like the CENTERLINE 2500 MCC. By implementing these new programs that epitomise intelligence and safety, business owners will see the credibility of their organisation increase.
The new partnership should see a lot of benefits in the coming future as Rockwell Automation customers are able to take full advantage of the new technology and hit their desired peak of company productivity.
