Tackles The Credit Crunch
credit crunch has bitten hard and there is talk of
situation is uncertain for the manufacturing sector and
there is enormous pressure to cut costs and improve
efficiency. This could be a good time to consider a Top
Hex electronic controller.
You may already have a
Programmable Logic Controller or PLC in your control
system, which is a popular choice. Although they are
great if you are building a one-off system, a PLC may be
an expensive option if you are producing multiple units
or variations on a theme. You may not need the real-time-clock,
motor control module, communications, etc., etc., fitted
to the PLC, but you still have to pay for them. Top Hex
supply customised controllers, so you only pay for the
facilities you need.
If your control system
consists of a temperature controller, a couple of relays,
a timer and a power supply, the individual component
costs might be low. There will however be a significant
labour cost in wiring between these components; this cost
can be eliminated with a Top Hex controller. All wiring
is direct to the controller, and you can even specify the
type of connectors you would like.
If you want to enhance the
appearance of your machine, a range of displays is
available. Whether you opt for a simple text display or a
full colour graphic display, your product will have a
designated, professional image that you cannot achieve
with off-the-shelf components.
A Top Hex controller can
be a cost effective solution, whether you are producing
10 or 10,000 units, and could make a contribution to your
companys efforts to beat the credit crunch.
