"The project was handled in a manner that always made you aware of your value as the customer. Jim (Lipten project manager) responded to all inquiries in a prompt and extremely professional manner. You could always sense that he was concerned about doing everything within his power to keep the project moving and the customer happy. John (Lipten site supervisor) did an outstanding job of coordinating the work in the field. He made the necessary contacts to get clarification for any questions that arose in a timely manner and was always in contact with the key players needed to keep the project moving. I’m pleased to be closing out my career with the State of Pennsylvania having had the opportunity to see a project of this magnitude completed without the ever familiar delays that typically occur within the layers of the State Government decision making process."

How time flies
With Jim Spencer, Lipten Company General Manager
 
How time flies: Early PLCs’ only function was to manipulate relays wired to its discrete inputs. (See CE, Oct. 1995, "The Evolution of PLC-Based Loop Control," p. 57.) Thirty years later, they remain a steadfast and growing component to various industries. Jim Spencer, general manager for Lipten, a power generation company based in Wixom, Mich., says, "PLCs fit the bill of replacing single-loop controllers. They provide flexibility to do all data acquisition, assist the DCS without high cost, are popular within other industries which, gives allowance to a greater familiarity among customers." Along with flexibility, speed has become another important development in PLC and I/O technology.
