Integrated Automation & Control Systems



The Smith & Long Integrated Automation & Control Systems Team are engaged in custom control panel building operations daily. We perform this work as an integral part of our own projects, for end users, OEMs (Original Equipment Manufacturers) and other electrical/mechanical contractors.

Regardless of what type of client or type of control panel we are required to produce, the process is the same resulting in non-compromising quality…from start to finish. It does not matter if a fully designed and specified control panel plan has already been developed…or a client is working from a “napkin concept sketch” whereby we can provide a completely innovative design and fabrication solution.

The Smith & Long Integrated Automation & Control Systems Team offer a full suite of custom control panel services such as:

  • Engineering & Design
  • Regulatory Safety Approvals Compliance
  • Equipment & Materials Specifying & Procurement
  • Control Panel Fabrication
  • Systems Programming & Documentation
  • Factory Acceptance Testing (FAT)
  • Operation & Maintenance Manuals
  • Installation At Site
  • Commissioning Services
  • Site Acceptance Testing (SAT)

Some clients have some of these aspects already covered with existing internal resources in which case we can approach it together as a collaborative team.

The Complete Documented Approach – Imperative with any successful design is documented detail. Design review and approval, materials and equipment procurement, fabrication, programming, installation, commissioning, operation, service, maintenance, all critical elements that depend immensely on quality documentation. We at Smith & Long in our Integrated Automation & Controls Division fully recognize this crucial need and as such take great pride in producing comprehensive documentation packages for all of our custom control panel projects. According to the project and client requirements, this can include shop drawings, control panel layouts, BOMs (Bill of Materials), schematics, annotated PLC / HMI / GUI programs, FAT (Factory Acceptance Testing) & SAT (Site Acceptance Testing) documentation, Operation & Maintenance Manuals, etc.
