PLC Applications Programming

For over 35 years Tesco Controls, Inc. has been involved in the development, programming, and configuration of PLC/RTU-based control systems for Water and Wastewater collection, distribution, treatment, remediation, and various industrial applications. Our programmers provide solutions for projects of all types and sizes, from small facilities to large multi-station treatment plants.

Custom Approach

TESCO employs a variety of programming methodologies, both custom and templated, designed specifically for the water and wastewater industries.  Doing so allows us to take advantage of the vast technology available coupled with proven methods for software, communications, and hardware integration.

Unmatched Industry Experience

Tesco Controls, Inc. delivers feature-rich PLC programs for control systems that are field-proven, reliable, robust, and flexible control systems. TESCO’s programmers have a vast knowledge of the water, wastewater, and transportation industries. Because our programmers are hands on, they have experience that is unmatched in this industry; our programmers understand the panels, the process, our clients’ needs, and coding standards. We excel at complex assignments—such as upgrading aging systems while keeping critical plant processes online during the renovation. While PLCs are our primary focus, TESCO programs many devices in addition to PLCs—OITs, webservers, power monitors, and auto dialers.
