PLC Control Systems Upgrade


Mechron personnel have been an active participants in providing power systems for the Canadian Department of National Defence North Warning System since the original upgrade program in the 1990’s. Mechron’s most recent efforts in the North Warning System involve the upgrading of the power generation systems at 37 North Warning Short Range Radar sites from 1999-2001, followed by the recent program to develop upgraded PLC control systems for Long Range Radar sites. The majority of these sites are remote, unmanned and accessible only by helicopter. Due to the operational importance of these sites and the difficulty of transport in the high arctic, quality control and logistics management are important to the successful completion. An essential component of these projects was maintaining the sites operational during power systems upgrades.
