WHAT WE DO

FAST QUOTES FOR TENDERS OR LIVE PROJECTS

Our clients love the flexibility of not having to wait days or weeks for a quote. Metroid’s estimating engineers can prepare an accurate and detailed proposal for your tender or live project, usually within 24 hours.

Usually all we require is a motor and instrument/equipment list (or a P&ID to take-off from), along with any applicable specifications.

ELECTRICAL DESIGN & CAD DRAWING

The design team at Metroid have many years’ experience on a wide range of challenging projects.

We use the latest version of AutoCAD Electrical along with proprietary automated plugins and scripts to rapidly generate professional and accurate electrical drawings. We thrive on specifications: we’ve designed and built boards for most of the big mining companies, many water authorities and other international companies.

Metroid provides a full drawing pack to you for approval before construction, and again as ‘as-built’ on project completion.

CONTROL PANEL & SWITCHBOARD CONSTRUCTION

We’ve invested heavily into building the world’s most advanced control panel manufacturing plant.

Our complex custom-built ERP software tracks every stage of the manufacturing process, and our revolutionary computerised wiring systems have shattered traditional expectations of wiring accuracy and efficiency.

You can rely on Metroid to consistently build and deliver your boards on-time, without hassle and headache.

PLC/HMI/SCADA PROGRAMMING AND INTEGRATION

Metroid is truly a ‘one-stop-shop’ when it comes to PLC and HMI programming. Every programmer has a broad range of process knowledge across many industries, coupled with working experience with major hardware brands including Allen-Bradley, Siemens, Schneider, Omron, Unitronics, Panasonic, Red Lion and more.

In addition, Metroid’s team includes qualified SCADA integrators with practical experience with Citect SCADA and ClearSCADA.

FUNCTIONAL TESTING AND COMPLIANCE ASSURANCE

Sounds obvious, but we’ll always conduct a thorough functional test in our workshop before despatching your board/s to site. Your onsite electrician can simply unload and install a fault-free switchboard, with no messy modifications and extensive testing time required.

In addition, we double-check specification compliance again, to ensure there are no surprises later on.

We can provide a comprehensive test report for every board shipped, for complete traceability and peace of mind.

COMMISSIONING AND TECH SUPPORT

Metroid offer an onsite commissioning service anywhere in Australia. Once we’re onsite, Metroid’s skilled commissioning engineers take a ‘whatever it takes’ approach to getting your system up and running – we’re more than happy to assist with mechanical, piping or structural issues as well as electrical.

Due to our thorough functional testing before despatch, the commissioning process with Metroid’s boards is often much simpler and faster than anticipated. We strongly believe that the place for re-wiring and re-programming is in the factory, not onsite.

Once your system is up and running, we’ll assist you remotely wherever possible, without charging an arm and a leg. The remote system access included in every PLC panel we produce allows us to make programming tweaks and add new features remotely, often free of charge.

FAQ

Do you design and build everything in-house?

Most definitely. Our qualified staff conduct all our design, drafting, engineering, board building, programming and testing here in Bendigo VIC.

How long does it take to design & build a control panel?

How long is a piece of string? In general terms, design time is around 1-2 weeks. Build time from your approval of our design is typically between 4-10 weeks, depending on the size of the project.
Need a project fast-tracked? No probs. Our operational systems and lean production lines mean we can expedite a project with ease.

How can I be sure you're able to deliver on-time?

With ample space and lean, modular production lines, we can quickly respond to increases in demand – allowing us to take on any size of development with ease.

Do you build power distribution boards/main switchboards?

Generally no. We’re laser-focused on industrial control systems, particularly motor and process control and PLC/HMI systems. We don’t generally build main switchboards or DB’s except as part of a larger control switchboard.

Can you also do field wiring and/or general electrical contracting?

Typically no. Our prime focus is to become the best in the world at design, manufacture and programming of control panels and switchboards for projects and customers all over Australia. While we offer onsite commissioning and hold an electrical contracting licence, we don’t usually provide field installation or general contracting.
Our comprehensive drawing pack provided with every board makes it easy for any industrial sparky to conduct installation and field wiring.
