Get Service for Hurricane Damaged Industrial Electronics

Hurricane Irene has been no friend to the East Coast …and certainly no friend to your industrial electronics.  Some good news…our facilities are up and running at ACS.  Even though some of our staff’s homes still do not have power, everyone is pulling to keep ACS busy solving your repair needs.

If you’ve got water or storm damaged industrial electronics, not all is lost.  Many items may still be repairable.  Following Hurricane Katrina the ACS team was able to provide repair services to many companies affected.  Our techs were able to repair many pieces of industrial electronics including a large quantity of circuit boards coated in Louisiana mud.  It was messy, but we did it!

Get your equipment back up and running fast.  Our tech team is ready to help you with board repairs, power supply repairs, drive repairs, motor repairs, monitors, encoder repairs, and most other industrial electronics repairs.

Plant & Facilities Managers Ace Problem Solvers – Hear What’s On Their Minds

Three cheers for the facilities, maintenance, and plant managers out there!  No, make that TEN cheers!   What a great bunch of nimble and creative people who increasingly have to achieve more with less…and for the most part, enjoy that challenge.
Besides just flat out asking our customers what’s up in their world, I also like to participate in various online forums and social media for facilities, maintenance, and plant managers.  What I hear is that you all really love solving plant problems and finding solutions to nagging plant issues that effect energy efficiency, sustainability, construction, plant equipment, security, and safety.
You love the daily variety of the work and the chance to make things run better.  Not that things are always perfect.  I also hear your frustrations such as “maintenance is the first department to get budget  and staffing cuts”,  “ too many regulatory and  changing requirements”,  “ tough to find electrical technicians with the right set of skills”, and “adhering to someone else’s timeline”.
Nevertheless, I am awed by the overwhelming positivity you guys continue to express and the ways you find to solve the problems at hand.  For example, one fellow was frustrated with the fact that management made decisions and budget cuts without really understanding what he was up against.
He didn’t yell or go home and beat the dog; instead he threw a party in the engine room and invited management.  They came and were fascinated, learned a thing or two and got to meet the people that actually make it all work.  The next time they rework the budget, they will do so with a greater understanding of the facilities’ needs.
Our goal is to help you achieve your goals when you need industrial electronic repair services.  Whether it’s servo motor repairs, or drive repairs, power supply repairs… whatever it is, let us know the situation…the more we know the more we can help.  If it’s a super rush, let us know and our technicians will do everything possible to meet your requirements.
As one forum writer noted, being a Plant/Facilities/Maintenance Manager is not for the faint of heart nor the slow of mind.  I think we can all agree on that.

Death of a Circuit Board

As it is Friday afternoon and you are probably about to bail out of the office a little early to get a head start on your weekend, I thought I’d ask you to spare a moment of silence for the deceased circuit board pictured.  Mr. DJ, play us some  taps will you? (Can you all hear the bugle now?)
Alas, this poor melted pcb met its demise in an untimely fashion.  We performed all sorts of electronic resuscitation techniques but it was not to be.  The damage was too extensive to be cost effectively repaired
While I don’t know exactly what piece of equipment this toasty little circuit board came out of, I can tell you it was medical equipment.  We do hope the human patient fared better than the electronic equipment.
Worried that your electronic equipment might suffer a similar  fate?  As always, we first recommend regular preventive maintenance.
If that fails, remember that industrial circuit board repair is usually an achievable option (pictured pcb not withstanding).  Sometimes, as with obsolete or out-of-warranty equipment, it is the ONLY option.
Our ACS tech team repairs literally hundreds of different pcb manufacturers from ABB circuit boards to Zytec repairs and everything in between.
If you are not sure if your circuit board can be repaired, give our very helpful customer service team a call for assistance at 800-605-6419.
