Biotech / Pharmaceutical – Legacy System Upgrade

Experts in Integrating Modern Controls with Legacy System Upgrade

When capital is tight, retrofitting existing equipment with new controls can deliver many of the same benefits as new equipment at a substantially lower cost. When equipment is mechanically sound but the control system is obsolete, a control system replacement is a very cost-effective solution. Matrix Technologies has managed thousands of legacy system upgrade projects for pharmaceutical and biotech manufacturers.

Matrix can help you eliminate the risks of obsolete systems, preserve your investment in existing applications, and convert to modern, new hardware and software platforms. You can have state-of-the-art capabilities to ensure your operations are kept at the highest level of productivity and quality. With our validation expertise, Matrix can help ensure that your upgrade progresses as smoothly as possible to ensure compliance when complete.

Our engineers carefully analyze your current system, custom applications, and reporting needs. We apply proven methods for reusing I/O and wiring, shadowing operation of existing systems, and rapid cut-over to minimize downtime while installing and commissioning new systems. We also provide comprehensive training for your plant personnel and detailed system specifications.
