FREMONT, CA: The MRO Electric and Supply Company believes in breathing new life into the old drives through its refurbishment process. MRO strives to return extensively used or faulty units to a previous like condition. This reduces owning and operating costs by providing customers with same-as-new quality at a fraction of the cost of new parts. The refurbishment process decreases greenhouse gas and minimizes waste by reusing raw materials that would have gone into tearing out the manufacturing line to replace it with a new series.

MRO Electric and Supply works closely with the industry and users of Unidrives. MRO possess the skills needed to provide refurbished and repaired Control Techniques Unidrive for the replacement of any legacy VFD Unidrive, irrespective of size or software version. Each drive is tested, certified and fully warrantied for a year.

 A damaged unit or returned core is disassembled down to the component parts at MRO Reman facility. Each component then goes through a cleaning process and is inspected against strict specifications to determine if it can be effectively re-used.

Repair or Refurbishment of a legacy Control Techniques Classic Drive involves MRO breaking down and surveying the system, understanding its functionality and then preparing a detailed functional design specification for a replacement system. MRO Electric performs these functions, as it has its own complete in-house electrical design and build capability, where full systems can be designed and manufactured.

The process is complemented by software services that cover the full spectrum, from PLCs through SCADA to DCS, and high level languages such as C# & VB DotNet. Database work, including real time industrial databases, is also used. In addition, MRO has the skills to configure and program machine vision systems, servo systems and robots.
