Arc Flash Studies
At CE Engineers, Inc. we believe it is important for electrical personnel have an electrically safe workplace. While performing a power study we analyze the electrical system of the facility to determine the arc flash hazard and the short circuit current to determine if the equipment at the facility can withstand these hazards and how the hazards will affect personnel. With the coordination study we coordinate the electrical system to minimize large outages and insure employee safety. Our studies comply with IEEE 1584-2018, NFPA 70 and 70E and you gain a thorough evaluation of your electrical system. Typical areas of concerns we see are in the form of under-rated equipment such as switchgears, switchboards, panelboards, MCC starters, feeder breakers, MCC bus bracing, conductors and fuses.
PLC & HMI Programming (also referred to as “Controls & Instrumentation”)
Our employees are proficient writing programs in ladder logic, sequential function charts function block diagrams and structured text. Typical equipment we work with that is integrated in our programs may include vision systems, robots, gantries, automated gates and screens, a variety of sensors (vibration, level and pressure transducers, gas and flow meters, photocells, proximity switches), relays, VFD (Variable Frequency Drives), PAC’s (Programmable Automation Controllers), PLC’s (Programmable Logic Controllers) and HMI’s (Human Machine Interfaces). We have experience working with the following types of PLCs: Allen Bradley (ControlLogix, SLC 500, PLC5, etc.), Siemens, SICK, National Instruments and Modicon.
We also design HMI and SCADA systems that are user friendly and work hand in hand with the control software.
Electrical & Controls Engineering Design
We create detailed electrical drawings that your facility can use to build the system in house or send out to electrical contractors for bid. We design according to the National Electrical Code (NEC) and ANSI standards. The panels we design meet UL508A standards and can be certified at a panel shop with no re-design needed. We provide the customer with all necessary power distribution drawings, such as one-line drawings, I/O drawings, 480V, 120V, 24V, power and control interconnection drawings (detailing conduit size, number of wires, estimated distances, etc.), enclosure drawings, assembly drawings, etc.
