Controls Engineer



This job involves the programming, startup, and debug of conveyor systems. Offline programming is done at our office, and typically requires the use of Studio 5000 software from Rockwell for the PLC, and Factory Talk View Studio from Rockwell for the HMI.

The engineer will need to control the conveyance of totes or packages on the conveyor based on information from the warehouse control system, plus feedback from other devices on the conveyor like barcode readers, scales, print & apply units, vertical lifts, bin dumpers, stackers, or any other piece of custom equipment our customer would use.

There is also some additional programming we do in languages like C#.

Emulate 3D is used for PLC programs to try out before shipping to a customer.
