Services & Solutions
Convergence specializes in getting your Operational Technology to work seamlessly. Learn more about our services and custom solutions to see how we can increase your systems profitability by reducing downtime, and simplifying your automation.
Whether we are programming for continuous and discrete processes (PLC/HMI/SCADA), or large continuous control systems (DCS/PLC-plant/system) we can help design, program, test the phases or even turnkey the entire solution. We can help connect the dots (Layer 1, 2, integrate operations technology) and orchestrate (system architecture/logical networking) and secure (DMZ layer 3, 3.5) your network as well. From the historian to any big data (enterprise-MES, OSI-PI, SQL, workflow solutions) application we can help. And we can help mitigate risk on your industrial network, respective to the outside world (Cyber security-NERC-CIP, PHMSA/CRM, Compliance).
Often projects require specialized skill sets and execution strategies that some typical engineering firms struggle to deliver, and we excel at. We can help develop and execute pre-commissioning efforts (planning-project management, etc. as needed). Validation, inspection, and commissioning (P&ID walk downs, full I/O checkout-commissioning, documentation, process control networks, etc.). And post project hand-off (documentation, training, technical support/services as needed) is often an area that is forgotten or minimized. We understand in some situations a strong transition strategy is almost or more important than the initial engineering/construction effort.
To complement our control & engineering services, we expand that offering with expertise in industrial communications-network security. We design, construct, and maintain various networks (microwave backbones, private networks, SCADA/long range, field WIFI). This means we can work with any medium (copper, fiber, wireless) to meet system requirements for up time/reliability/capacity. We can install/maintain communication towers, commission path studies, and even specialize in perimeter security, surveillance, and access control applications as well. Our offering also includes training for in house technicians, long term support, and maintenance contracts as needed.
Today's cyber threats can cost millions in down time, lost process tuning, and regulatory fines. While ransomware threats such as Stuxnet and WannaCry can take your system out, you could also be subject to packet spoofing foreign and domestic hackers, or shut down by a disgruntled employee.
CCE and our partners offer a range of services to harden your system from threats while creating a defensible position from should the worst happen.

We offer plant/field power systems design and consulting services, whether the power is coming from the utility or internally within the customer’s system (medium/low voltage). We can help with traditional arch flash, plant wide UPS systems, to protective relaying and ground grid design. We excel at power quality applications (harmonic & transient mitigation, power factor correction, large motor starting, etc.). Our engineers have expertise in safety analysis and regulatory compliance as well. If you have a power issue in the process area, or from the main power grid to the plant/process area we can help.
Is your asset an energy hog or subject to dirty power causing you increased power consumption and burning up your devices way before their functional lifetime?
CCE can analyze your power and implement strategies and devices to reduce your operational costs and create better sustainability for your facility.
