Blue Ridge Control Systems - Electrical Engineering


Control Panel Design

We design, build, and commission electrical control panels.  Whatever your process may be, we can retrofit your old system with the latest PLC, single-loop controller, or variable frequency drive (VFD).

PLC Programming

We have experience on a variety of programmable logic controller (PLC) platforms.  This includes Allen Bradley, Siemens, and Automation Direct.


No control system is complete without an intuitive graphical interface.  Let us develop a better user experience for your plant.  This may be a pushbutton panel, touchscreen, or distributed PC network.

Drive Systems

Pumps, fans, compressors, and other motor controlled equipment represent a significant portion of your plant's electrical cost.  We can modernize your motor controls with a variable frequency drive (VFD) retrofit, offering you a rapid return on investment.


A control system is only as reliable as its inputs, and that's where instrumentation and sensors come into play.  We have experience with temperature, pressure, flow, and position sensing.  We can select implement the appropriate technology for your process.

Data Acquisition

You need meaningful data in order to drive process improvements.  We can supplement your HMI or SCADA system with data acquisition software.  Capture information such as alarms, events, and process variables for future reference.
