When to consider upgrading your controls?
The path of upgrading your Control system to your vacuum system (may it be a thin film system, thermal vacuum systems, or even central vacuum system) is a very cost effective way of ensuring continued operational performance on older equipment. By a rule-of-thumb one can assume that a Control system upgrade equals about 10% of a new system price. The added benefit is that you get a system that will last for another 20 years. So, when is it time to consider this path? Well, when eectronics that are used to control the machine are getting obsolete, it is about time to start looking at options.
