Network Assessments

The IT infrastructure for your production environment is the key to continuing down a road of efficiency and profitability. Do you know where you stand?

A network assessment provides you with a full view into the current state of your plant manufacturing network including the physical infrastructure and the active technology design. A full audit will be done of all installed networking equipment and cabling which will then be compared to the appropriate standards like ISA-99/IEC62443, industry design best practices, and lifecycle/obsolescence databases.

The end result is a detailed gap analysis in 8 key areas.

A Network Assessment includes:
    • Overview of how your network installation compares to industry standards and best practices in terms of physical installation and design
    • Reporting based on looking at physical topology, switch selection, router selection, ethernet communication modules, environmental conditions, cable selection, cable management, cable labeling, power redundancy, and grounding
    • Reporting based on network design including logical topology, security zones, manufacturing and cell/area zones
    • Reporting based on security including policies, access control, governance, backup, design for data integrity, and incident detection
    • Identification of potential causes of any network issues they may be experiencing (if applicable)

      View a Sample Network Assessment

    • Hardware Audit and Lifecycle evaluation of all networking components (active, mature, discontinued, etc.)
    • Potential follow-up items for network improvement
    • Detailed improvement recommendations ranked based on criticality

Automation Assessments

Prioritize based on Facts. Understand the State of Your Current Equipment.

One of the first steps in establishing priorities in your plant is understanding what you have today. An Automation Assessment is a comprehensive evaluation that considers how equipment is used in various applications, its environmental conditions, its current lifecycle status, and its maintenance history to provide you facts that you can use to make migration, upgrade, or spare part decisions.

This Automation Assessment evaluates your Installed Base to provide you a:
  • Full audit and subsequent inventory listing of installed Automation Equipment and its lifecycle status (active, active mature, end of life, discontinued)
  • An analysis of the highest risk equipment and its locations
  • A listing of all installed components that could potentially require spares.
  • A report of insufficient spares to support your equipment should something fail
  • A report of excess or obsolete spares should you want to reduce your carrying costs
  • A report by cabinet on environmental conditions: grounding, wiring, possible corrosive conditions, etc.
  • Recommended replacements for obsolete Rockwell Automation equipment

All detailed by location, line, equipment, cabinet, and catalog number.

4 Levels of Assessments Are Available:

View a Sample Assessment

  1. Rockwell Automation Repairable Equipment
  2. Rockwell Automation Repairable & Consumable Equipment
  3. Rockwell & 3rd Party Repairable Equipment
  4. Rockwell & 3rd Party Repairable & Consumable Equipment

With options to add:

  • Standard and Servo Motors
  • A 2-Year Refresh of Your Data and Reports
Assessment Outcomes:

An automation assessment is going to provide you the facts you need on technology obsolescence for your entire facility. This will allow you and your management team to make educated decisions about risk and where you may want to start planning and how to prioritize upgrades or migrations.

In addition, it is going to help tell you specifically how sufficient or insufficient your spare part store is so you can make ensure you always have what you need should a failure occur.

Arc Flash Assessments

Protect Your Employees. Protect Your Organization.

OSHA requires employers to ensure the safety of workers in the workplace. Protecting your employees from electrical hazards, including arc flash, is critical. By contracting with Rumsey Site Services, you can guarantee the safety of your employees and confidently manage your OSHA and NFPA70E compliance for arc flash hazards.

Have you updated your study in the last 3 – 5 years? Have you updated it since you added additional equipment/load? If not, we can assist.

Your arch flash study will be conducted by qualified power and electrical engineers and includes the following process:

Collecting Data
  • A Rumsey electrical/power engineer will verbally walk through your system with you, estimating the number of devices and panels and discussing the current state of your one-line.
  • From there a site visit will be conducted to walk the one-line and identify/validate all equipment, types of devices, existing settings for relays, breaker and trip units, ratings, time-current curves, clearing times, impedance, additional connections and possible alternative connections.

Once a full understanding of your system is established, the team will begin their multi-step evaluation process.

Evaluating:
  • Electrical Model Creation - Up-to-date one-line drawings are developed providing an accurate model of your electrical system.
  • Short Circuit (SC) Study – this equipment-to-device evaluation determines if the protective devices are properly sized, what the currents are versus what the devices are rated for.
  • Protective Device Coordination (PDC Study) – determines coordination and timing of devices to isolate faults and minimize impacts of faults
  • Arc Flash Hazard (AFH) Study
  • Reevaluation of Coordination

Once the electrical study and evaluation are complete, we work together to provide the information back to you in an understandable but formal report for you and your management.

Mitigating & Reducing Risk
  • Our engineers will present their findings via a detailed arc flash analysis report including a Protective Device Coordination (PDC) study and a short circuit current study.
  • Rumsey engineers will also identify any critical areas and provide a summary table of any items within a dangerous level.
  • Recommendations to reduce arc flash hazards and correct over-duty equipment are provided for discussion.
  • An additional revision may be provided to analyze impact of any corrections/changes that will be made based on findings and recommendations.

Optional arc flash and safety hazard labeling, as well as written safety programs, can also be provided to serve as a safety policy reference for employees working in or around live electrical cabinets.

Power Quality Assessments

Power Quality Improves Equipment Reliability.

Does your facility suffer from unreliable power? A variety of power quality issues often have a significant effect on highly sensitive manufacturing equipment and hence your production. Even brief fluctuations can result in lost production, failed equipment, or safety hazards. To reverse this, it is important to understand the root cause of the inconsistencies and establish a plan for mitigation.

Common issues include early on-equipment failure such as:
  • Motor insulation failures within five years
  • Motor bearings overheating
  • Computer power supply failures
  • PLC and automation control miss operation

Or maybe you and your organization are seeing transformer noise or power factor billing cost impacts. These could all be early indicators of power quality problems that can be addressed. Common problems that might lead to these include:

  • Brownouts
  • Surges
  • Frequency Inconsistency
  • Spikes
  • Transients
  • Sags
  • Line Noise
  • Harmonic Distortions

By having a Rumsey electrical/power engineer conduct a power quality study, we can identify if any of these are the root cause of other things you might be experiencing.

Since we have a dedicated team of engineers, we can then suggest multiple mitigation options that can reduce system loading and/or ensure ideal performance. We will work with you, your team, your contractor, or our staff to implement the changes and increase the reliability of your system.
