N2P Controls currently offers solutions throughout NZ, Australia, the Pacific Islands and Asia.
NZ is full of innovative companies developing new processes, machinery, services etc. A lot of the time these companies struggle to find a supportive partner to help them with their electrical controls and/or automation. Often clients aren’t aware of the different options available that can allow greater flexibility, control, ease of use and/or cost savings for their application. This can lead to a solution that does not meet its potential.
Dealing with some electrical and/or automation companies, you don’t get the wide breadth of practical experience that may be required to understand your application. This can lead to delays in development as suppliers come up to speed with the requirements, or communication/interpretation confusion over the scope of work required.
Some companies don’t have the budget to invest in paying suppliers to design a solution for them, and for complex projects this can be expensive. This may result in the client not finding the best solution for their application.
At N2P Controls their engineers have experience with a wide range of industries and have worked with a wide range of suppliers. Consequently N2P Controls can quickly comprehend the problem at hand, identify the scope of work, and find the most suitable path for developing a solution, and communicate this to the client.
With N2P Controls’ engineers’ experience they are just at ease communicating about the mechanical aspects of a problem as they are with the electrical. Consequently they can quickly identify the client’s requirements and communicate solutions.
N2P Controls takes a partnership approach to working with their clients. This typically involves working on design solutions with no upfront costs to the client.
THE TECHNICAL STUFF
Designs can be as simple as a few 240V relays and isolation switch, through to a touch screen interfaced panel that is controlling a complex batching process with remote monitoring. It can be high speed microprocessor based control or push button control.
An emerging field is the ease and relatively cost effectiveness of remote monitoring of machinery through cellular networks. This allows machinery to send an alarm signal or operational information to a 3rd party website, or to a mobile phone, or email. It also allows for two way communication. This method of monitoring is expected to grow significantly over the next 5-10 years and N2P Controls is one of the leaders in this field.
N2P Controls can accommodate production runs from 10 to 10,000 units. For clients who export, there is a risk of their controls program being hacked if a commonly branded controller is used. N2P Controls customised designs can ensure the program is locked, safe from hackers.
N2P Controls has the experience and expertise to design and build a customised controller for any application. No project is too big or too small, too complex or too simple. N2P Controls ensures they understand the client’s scope of work through a validation process that is signed off at key stages. They then deliver a cost competitive solution to meet their client’s requirements while ensuring the final look of the controller is professional and enhances the client’s brand.
N2P Controls involvement doesn’t stop once the product is shipped out. They offer a total after sales support service and are happy to field calls from installations to ensure the controller is installed and operating as designed. Each controller that goes out has a client approved, installation procedure. It is this desire to make it as easy as possible for their clients that make N2P Controls a first choice supplier.
