Industrial Plant Automation

RCR's comprehensive industrial automation service can design, construct, and commission industrial automation systems of all sizes.


Energy Plant Control Systems

RCR has the ability to offer a full system design and implementation service, with proven experience in both local and distributed control systems for energy plants. Our multi-platform approach enables us to provide solutions that integrate with existing site standards.


Industrial Control Systems

In addition to our core boiler and heat plant abilities, RCR has experience in the provision of industrial control systems for the manufacturing, dairy, water treatment, food processing, forestry, mining and power industries.


Boiler Control System Design

With proven experience in both local and distributed boiler control systems, RCR has the ability to offer a full system design service.

Our multi platform approach means that we can usually offer a solution which integrates with existing site standards.


PLC & DCS Programming

RCR has proven experience working with IEC61131-3 programming languages, specifically Ladder Logic, Function Block diagrams, Sequence Function Charts and Structured text.


SCADA System Integration

The SCADA system is a very important window into the automation system as it provides both operational information and assists with the diagnosis of mechanical / electrical faults.  


Remote Monitoring

With the use of modern remote monitoring systems, technical upgrades and system tuning is able to be carried out remotely. This is supported by RCR’s automation engineers who are located throughout New Zealand and Australia and network of subcontractors throughout the Pacific. 


PID Loop tuning

In addition to the use of advanced PID loop tuning software, RCR offer a tuning service that reduces process variability and increases efficiency.


Burner Management Systems

With the new solid state burner management system from Weishaupt, RCR is also able to integrate burner-flame safeguard control, electronic cam-less control and valve tightness control into a single control unit that delivers the performance, compactness and value.  These solid state control systems can be networked with site-wide control systems allowing remote monitoring of burner performance and fault diagnostics.


RCR is able to provide engineering services for the design and implementation of Safety Instrumented Systems including full burner management systems in accordance with local regulations and international safety standards (e.g. IEC/AS 61508 and IEC/AS 61511) for various and multiple fuels.


Professional Bodies

RCR maintains an active membership of IPENZ (Institute of Professional Engineers New Zealand) for our engineers and are members of ISA (International Society of Automation).
