From large distributed control systems containing supervisory databases and ERP/MES/MOM integration to machine-level HMI and PLC programming, we have the experience and expertise to address your automation programming needs. All software is developed with Ease-Of-Use at the core and real-world flexibility to adapt to quickly changing production needs and unexpected equipment situations, all of which combine to support our number one priority of keeping you informed and helping to keep your process running at its best!

What’s more, since Sterling Systems & Controls, Inc. follows a strict internal design and review policy (Working With Us) as well as utilizes and maintains a high-quality library of tried-and-field-tested “building blocks” of code, you can rest assured that even if your main point-of-contact engineer is not available, any one of our trained engineering staff will still be able to help at any time you need assistance. Software that is flexible, easy to use, top quality, and well supported…..that really is a perfect fit to meet your objectives.

Our experience includes process control and data handling, proportional feeding, batching, blending/mixing, bulk weighing, bagging and liquid control. In addition, we offer end-user and Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEM) customers the advantage of single-source responsibility from concept through manufacturing and implementation, eliminating the high overhead costs of handling it yourself.
