Electrical Design

We have in house electrical design engineers using the last electrical design software packages capable of producing electrical drawings in the shortest timescales due to our investment in producing standard design templates which meet most needs of the modern world. In the event our templates do not match your exact requirements, we are able to produce bespoke electrical drawings in very short timescales because of the technology we use.

We can design systems in accordance with the following standards

  • BS EN954-1
    Safety of machinery- Safety-related parts of control systems (now obsolete)
  • EN ISO 13849-1 TBC
    Safety of machinery -- Safety-related parts of control systems -- Part 1: General principles for design
  • BS EN 62061 TBC
    Safety of machinery, Functional safety of safety-related electrical, electronic and programmable electronic control systems
  • BS EN 60204-1:2006+A1:2009
    Safety of Machinery - Electrical Equipment of Machines - Part 1 General Requirements
  • IEC 60439-1 / EN 60439-1
  • BS 7671:2008
    Requirements for electrical installations. IEE Wiring Regulations. Seventeenth edition
Software Design

Our core activity is programming PLCs, (Programmable Logic Controllers), HMI's and Scada Systems. Systems vary considerably in size from small 'micro' PLCs to the very largest dual redundant high availability or safety systems. Our engineers have a massive catalogue of experience, from working on airports, small package machines to nuclear power plants.

We have experience in the upgrading of legacy system, either by programme conversion, (where possible) or by reverse engineering and re-programming. In truth most legacy upgrades are a combination of the two. Most of our engineers have been around long enough to remember installing the equipment that is now being replaced, therefore we have a wealth of experience when carrying out legacy upgrades

Our software designers generally work alongside our electrical engineers to produce cutting edge, structured software which is easy to maintain and fault find. We will use standard design templates where possible to reduce development costs and increase the reliability of the software. All of the software we produce is well structured and well commented as we strongly believe software doesn't have to be complicated to be functional.

We have the facility to perform formal software factory acceptance testing as and when required to pre-written test scripts as well as the ability to use software simulation packages if required.

Our engineers have the ability to programme PLC's using any of the languages listed below

  • Ladder
  • Structured Text
  • Sequence Flow Chart
  • EN 61131
  • Function Block

When it's comes to Scada and HMI Systems, the list is endless and the technology is constantly evolving, just a few of the languages we have experience of programming in are

  • VB Script
  • VB for Application (VBS)
  • Sequence Flow Chart
  • SQL
  • C#
Control Panel Build

As a system integrator, control panels are the key element to our success. We are capable of designing and building control panels to your or our specification at a competitive price. As with all of our services we do pride ourselves on the quality the control panels we build.


We have in house team of commissioning engineers that are flexible and knowledgeable to adapt their skills to any industrial process. Although they are all time served electrical engineers, they all have a level of mechanical knowledge that is important to be an effective commissioning engineer. We have a track record of working with our customers to develop and improve their products from experience our engineers have gained from other industries.

GAMP5 Validation

We can provide documentation and validation for control systems to meet the requirement of GAMP5. We have been working in the Pharmaceutical Industry for many years and have worked on projects for some of the largest Pharmaceutical Manufacturers in the work. We have the expertise to produce documentation that will satisfy the most stringent validation department.

Our in house quality systems ensure we produce quality documentation all of the time, but these systems are flexible enough to adapt to your internal procedures if required.

21CFR11 Compliance

We can provide software and the necessary documentation to comply with the Code of Federal Regulation Title 21 Part 11 "Electronic Records, Electronic Signatures", also known as 21 CFR 11. We have a working knowledge of these regulations and have produced compliant systems using many of the leading manufacturer's products.

Control Systems Project Management

We at CPN Systems believe the success of any project is down to good project management. When it comes to control system project management there are different obsticles we face and usually greater technical difficulties. We have engineers that are experienced at managing control system projects and ensuring that projects are delivered on time and on budget regardless of the difficulties along the way.

Certified Profibus Installer

We have engineers that are Certified Profibus installers. We have the necessary knowledge to install and test Profibus installations to ensure a 100% reliable network. We also have the technically to fault find on the most complicated Profibus networks.

24 Hour Technical Support

We can provide a 24 hours / 365 day per year technical support assistance to your company which can be scaled to your requirements. Please contact us to discuss your specific requirements.

We also have the facility to provide remote support from our offices within Wolverhampton to wherever in the world you equipment may be. We have various technologies we can offer, from systems that use your existing IT infrastructure to systems that use the standard mobile phone network.

We can provide a 24 hours / 365 day per year technical support assistance to your company which can be scaled to your requirements. Please contact us to discuss your specific requirements.

Asset Management / Obsolescence Management

Asset management and obsolescence management is now becoming an major part of our business. We can provide a full asset list of all the equipment on your site and advise you of the current availability of spares, the estimated remaining life of the equipment, locate spares and if spares are not available advise you the best possible course of action to take to reduce your risk with regards to the component failing. We also have a network of suppliers of second user industrial automation products, but if spares cannot be sourced we also have a various industrial repair centres around the country that can repair equipment when required.


We provide PLC / HMI / SCADA training packages that we believe to be of the highest quality. We have the ability to either produce a bespoke training course or tailor one of our standard training courses to suit your particular requirements.

We can ether come to your offices or organise one the many training rooms available at the Wolverhampton Science Park.

We offer training packages of all levels and have developed a PLC training package specifically designed at electrical / mechanical maintenance engineers.
