There are many applications for industrial controllers. Many of these applications are satisfied by the use of Programmable Logic Controllers (PLCs). The use of general purpose PLCs can be an expeditious way to achieve a particular control objective. But general purpose PLCs can be expensive, physically difficult to package, missing special or precision analog electrical interfaces, and awkward to program. In short, a general purpose PLC approach is often not the optimal solution. Orchid Technologies has assisted many of its clients in the design of low-cost, optimized industrial controls. These are microcontroller-based product which incorporate custom packaging, custom analog interface electronics, custom digital IO and custom embedded software design. Custom design industrial controllers from Orchid Technologies solve many of the problems associated with a PLC implementation. Orchid Technologies builds its custom industrial controller designs around microcontrollers from Freescale and NXP. Using these microcontrollers, Orchid adds its proprietary real-time-operating system kernel to produce a custom controller that responds to your specific control requirements. Complete with general purpose IO, precision analog interfaces, USB Ports, Compact Flash Disk, Ethernet, RS232, RS485, Motor Controls, and more, Orchid's custom electronic controls can solve your most demanding needs.

Over the many years that Orchid Technologies has been designing custom electronic products, we have performed numerous custom industrial controller designs. Among our success stories are cryogenic pump controllers, water purification controllers, drug discovery controllers, automotive motion controllers, heating system controllers, moving door access controllers and more. The design of custom industrial controllers with rapid design cycles, demanding technical requirements, and unforgiving schedules sets us apart.
