Automation Engineering

Engineering services beyond the traditional PLC and DCS design and installation

Red Trident is a vendor neutral automation solution provider capable of supporting all major automation system vendors. This means that we can work on your existing system or design, build, and support the right system to solve your business challenges.

Our automation engineering services go well beyond the traditional control system design and installation. We know the future of industrial automation is about the ability to leverage the information from these systems to enhance operational performance and provide operational insight in real time.

We have experience work in O&G, energy, water, chemical, and manufacturing industries and are able to bring both operational excellences and cybersecurity to your process control systems. Give us a call to discuss your next project.

Our automation engineers work within our cyber security teams to enhance the capabilities and understanding of cybersecurity as it applies to process control systems. This deep technical knowledge is what separates Red Trident’s cyber security capabilities from everyone else.

Red Trident does not just handle projects we also answer the phone in the middle of the night when you need us. We want to be your partner and that means being there whenever you need us, no matter if its in the plants of East Texas of the fields of North Dakota.

Many organizations implemented process control systems more then 10 years ago. These systems are becoming obsolete and do not offer the robust capabilities of a modern process control system. We specialize in providing multiple options for you to modernize your process control system and minimizing your downtime for these migrations.

We work with our clients to identify the requirements of any control system and then systematically break the problem down by developing the appropriate control narratives, cause and effect diagrams, and I/O lists to support the efficient development of the control system. Once systems have been designed we ensure the operate as intended by performing a Factory Acceptance Test (FAT) utilizing a test plan before the system ever leave our facility or laydown yard, and we also perform a Site Acceptance Test (SAT) at the time of commissioning.

HMI and SCADA systems are many times undervalued when developing a control system. The HMI or SCADA system is critical for operators and their ability to detect and analyze the process under control. Understanding this, we work closely with operations teams to ensure the system provides the functions needed and provide any enhancements needed to get the most value out of a process control system.
