Online buying for automation and control engineers

~ CP Automation and Euroserv launch new Web sites with e-commerce functionality at their heart ~

Independent Service Company CP Automation has launched new, e-commerce enabled, industrial repair and field service web sites for itself and its sister company Euroserv.

The two new sites cover the two company’s twin areas of focus; the supply, repair and field service of industrial electronic boards, PLC's, AC drives,resistors, DC drives and inverters. Both CP Automation and Euroserv provide an independent supply chain fulfilling their clients MRO needs; simply choosing the most appropriate product from any manufacturer for each job.

As well as online buying, the sites feature a host of information on technologies ranging from regenerative braking, dynamic braking and energy efficiency to electronic and electrical repairs and maintenance.

The two Web sites went live early in 2011 and the company's managing director Tony Young believes they are a reflection of the transformed purchasing methods in British industry. "Engineer's buying habits have changed hugely in the last decade," explained Young. “It’s now not unusual for automation companies to receive component orders without ever having spoken with the person buying the equipment. This is a huge contrast with the way the automation industry did business in the past, when salesmen’s visits, posted catalogues and reams of printed datasheets were the norm.”

One of the most innovative products on the two new sites is RevCon, a system which returns the energy produced when a motor slows down to the grid. RevCon can use a feed-in tariff, similar to those found on domestic and semi commercial wind turbines and can be retrofitted to any inverter, irrespective of design or manufacturer, thanks to its versatile non-software driven installation protocol. Because many motors, in applications such as pumps, fans, elevation and conveying are required to brake constantly as the application slows down and stops, the potential for saving with the unit is huge.

CP Automation’s Web site can be found at www.cpaltd.net, while Euroserv’s equivalent is www.euroservltd.net.
