Siemens AG announced the end of life for FactoryLink in 2007 and although support continued until 2012, getting any help or support for FactoryLink now is very difficult.
AAC have been working with and supporting FactoryLink since 2005, and continue to provide application changes and updates as customers require them.
As a specialist AAC are also well placed to provide migration services to take the legacy SCADA applications to a new modern SCADA platform.
As both a Schneider and Siemens Solution partner we are not tied to a single product, we can advise you as to which product best suits your needs or conform to your standards.
If you have a FactoryLink Project that you wish to migrate to a new solution please email us with a request.
We know that keeping your plant running and safeguarding your operation is your key concern. As such we keep the migration process as simple as possible so we can safeguard your operation as quickly as possible
You’ll see that we don’t discuss new features or enhancements until the replacement SCADA is in place – we understand your key driver is to safeguard your operation and do that as quickly as possible. To start to discuss new features or enhancements before you have even seen your new SCADA can just lead to unnecessary delay and cost.
There never seems to be a right time to upgrade your SCADA system but if your SCADA system is starting to show its age then the sooner the better is probably the right answer when you weigh up the benefits:
We can replace the SCADA system in parallel with your existing system so it mitigates the risk. And we will support you through every step of the process.
You will see that when we talk about migration we talk a lot about analysis of your current application. That is because we don’t have (or want) a tool that just does a copy and paste of your current application into your new SCADA. Why?
Through the whole process we work closely with you to ensure you get the solution you want.
With so many choices with regard to which SCADA system to migrate to the options can be confusing. As part of our free initial analysis we can advise you on the options plus the pros and cons of each based on your specific application.
We only work with leading SCADA systems so you know that in the future there will be support. We also don’t insist you buy from us, you can purchase direct from the supplier. This includes training and support, we are there to help you with your migration project, not to build future reliance on us and therefore generate business.
We offer a no obligation, free initial project analysis.
