Our team takes a very structured and modular approach to PLC code development that stresses DRY principles and re-useability. Our software development practices focus on “automation” where possible and we make continuous investments in internal software tools to aid in that process. For some of our more common systems, we’ve developed tools to leverage libraries of proven code templates to actually generate entire PLC programs from spreadsheets, reducing engineering time and increasing quality. Our goal is always to deliver PLC Code that is understandable, maintainable, and rock-solid.

MCS Automation is an expert in the field of RFID Systems for the Airport Baggage Handling Industry. We implemented our first RFID based baggage scanning solution for a Major International Airport in 2011 and have been constantly honing our skills since. Along with our partners at Impinj we have developed a Baggage Read Controller that has proven capable of achieving a 99.5% Read Rate. We are currently deploying this solution Terminal-wide at one of the worlds busiest International Airports. When coupled with our Reporting / Data Collection system and BRS Integration, the system will give unprecedented baggage visibility and traceability to the Airport’s operator positioning them to fully support IATA Resolution 753 ahead of schedule.
