Proactive Maintenance and Service Options
W.A.S.S.P. “Wired Advantage Service Support Program”
Wired Automation can help equalize your maintenance and repairs budget by offering a customized service support contract for an annual fee to help keep your machinery and facility maintained, avoid costly downtime and reduce customer risk. This support can be used at your discretion, for the exact services you need. It’s like having a paid electrical / automation specialist on staff, without the cost of a full-time position. We can develop complete solutions by working with you to build an interactive easy to use Preventative Maintenance program or follow a program provided by you.
- Provides a method for budgeting non-scheduled service or unanticipated breakdowns.
- Covers all services available from Automation / Electrical Solutions and upgrades to repairs and service.
- Unused funds near the end of the service year can be used for improvements to the client’s automation system.
- Pre-arranged labor rates are written into the yearly service agreement at the beginning of each service year.
- Around-the-clock maintenance support provides guaranteed access to an Automation specialist
- After-hours response, twenty-four hours per day seven days a week.
- Service calls billed at the lower contract rates, rather than regular rates.
- Contract customers given dispatch priority.

Additional Service Options
Wired Automation is able to provide excellent pre-sales and post-sales technical support due to its experienced staff.
Are you thinking about adding a new component to your facility? Are you looking to improve efficiency of your manufacturing process? Do you have a legacy system that requires upgrading? Wired Automation can provide answers to your questions with the relevant information you need to make a cost effective decision.
Wired Automation can come to your site to assist your own staff with the installation of your system whether it be a new or existing installation. We will have your new equipment integrated and working effectively and efficiently with the minimum disruption.
Do you have old equipment with poorly functioning controls or want a boost in efficiency by adding automation to an existing machine? Wired Automation has the experience and technical support to upgrade your equipment.
If your equipment is critical, why not consider our 24/7 Support contracts. A Wired Automation Technician can be dispatched to your facility to ensure that you are back on your feet in no time. You will have the comfort of knowing that your manufacturing system will be taken care of.
Programmable Logic Controllers (PLC)
PLC’s are used to perform functions such as logic, sequencing, timing, counting and arithmetic to control a process whether it be for a machine or building facility.
Allen-Bradley / Rockwell PLC-5 Migrations
As the old legacy products are being phased out, the need to update existing PLC-5 processors. Wired Automation offers a cost effective approach to PLC-5 migration.
Human Machine Interfaces (HMI)
Wired Automation can support and design all your operator interface systems to help control and monitor the machine or plant operations in real time with visible messaging to alert the operator of any present faults.
ElectroCam Programmable Limit Switches
PLµS® Programmable Limit Switches are used in a variety of rotating shaft control applications. These include switching machine devices On and Off directly. Also, machinery operating at varying speeds and used for highly accurate timing of components.
Health & Safety Systems
We believe safety to be a high priority. Human, Environment and Machine safety are at the top of that list. Automating a production line reduces the risk of repetitive motion injury to personnel. While adding safety devices to machinery such as Safety controllers, light curtains and E-Stop circuits adds protection for its operators.
Health & Safety Certifications
First Aid with CPR C & AED, St. John Ambulance, Arc Flash Training, Radiation Safety Training, Eaton Electrical Services, Forklift & Pedestrian Safety, All Lift Truck Training, WHMIS 2015, Occupational Health & Safety, HACCP Hazard Analysis Critical Control Point, Food Safety & Lock & Tag out
Panel Design & Fabrication
Need a UL or CSA certified control panel?
Let our team build a custom certified panel that meets your needs and requirements. We offer a wide range of custom panel options from small single panel designs to large modular enclosures. We can build panels to customer specified documentation or a Wired Automation complete control solution. It can be turnkey where we will supply all materials needed for the project or the customer can supply the material and we will put it all together into a nicely designed panel build.
All our enclosures are designed with long term reliability in mind. Components are securely mounted in a properly selected enclosure to match environmental locations and hazards.
Optional purged panels utilize pressurized air to ensure the panel is able to withstand harsh environments and protect electrical components.
Combination Starter Panels
A combination starter is a pre-wired enclosure with 2 components that complete it, a safety disconnect and starter. The safety disconnect prevents the panel door from being opened unless the power is turned off. Combination starters allow for the addition of fusible disconnects and circuit breakers. This can provide additional motor on-off control, motor overload protection, and short circuit protection.
VFD Drive Panels
Variable Frequency drive (VFD) technology offers a cost-effective method to vary the speed of a motor for better control while reducing operating costs and improving production. All Wired Automation VFD Cabinets are custom made for your application.
Programmable Logic Controller (PLC) Panels are used in many industries such as oil refineries, manufacturing lines, conveyor systems and so on. They are meant to be very flexible in how they can be programmed for your application while also providing the advantages of high reliability and maximizing productivity.
Wired Automation ensures all PLC panels are built correctly and meet customers’ expectations.
Soft Start Panels
Soft starters are a logical choice for starting a motor that doesn’t need to run at variable speeds
Many motors run at a fixed speed so they don’t need the increased cost and features that a VFD brings, almost every manufacturing facility will have the need for both soft starters and VFD’s, We will help you choose the option that is right for your application.
Operator Station Panels
Operator Control Stations allow the operator to be in control of the machinery. The panel can include push buttons, selector switches, lights or an HMI in an enclosure that best suits the operator’s needs.
Junction Box Panels
Pre-assembled junction-boxes are available in various NEMA ratings and materials including Stainless steel, painted steel, PVC or fiberglass.
Human Machine Interface (HMI) touch panels allow operators to control the machine operations and receive information messages from the machine. Good button layouts on main and alarm screens are key factors to get most out of HMI touch panels.
