To further aid and enhance customer systems, Kors provides many services to extend the functionality of existing equipment, processes, and procedures. We specialize in retaining existing customer equipment, providing open architecture controls and custom drivers to open communications channels. Vertical and horizontal integrations connect systems from enterprise functionality to PDA and wireless mobile strategies. We provide managers with aggregated system information, while providing field staff with mission specific critical data. We eliminate redundancy of functions and procedures by giving every level of worker the information to address their specific needs.
Kors’ greatest depth of experience is with facility automation. Our systems help automate nearly all mechanical and electrical equipment. With this automation, our customers take advantage of our open architecture to provide intra and inter-building control, along with multiple type processes include HVAC, power generation, lighting, irrigation, snow melt, and many more auxiliary systems. Our front end systems provide user-friendly control for a wide range of skill sets to tackle with short learning curves. Our thin client solutions provide customers the solutions they need with an increasing asset accountability with reduced labor availability. With 30 years of government and industrial site services, you can depend on solid, reliable solutions.
Plant Floor, Metal Forming and Press Automation
Using off-the-shelf equipment and open architecture controls, Kors Engineering delivers advanced press management, providing live data and control to local operations, and through your vertical systems, up to enterprise systems. Perform real-time controls management of your plant floor. Information provided to the enterprise system allows recipe management, machine control, live and historical analysis, alarm and log annunciation, and other useful features.
Kors provides extensive PLC services in the Allen Bradley, Modicon, Telemecanique, EZPLC, Automation Direct series of PLCs as well as associated control panels, network architecture, and system design
HVAC Control Systems
Kors Engineering provides non-proprietary control systems for control of Air Handling Units (AHU), Variable Air Volume (VAV) boxes, exhaust fans, pumps, chillers, boilers, Variable Frequency Drives (VFD), and other HVAC system components. The control systems include local operator interfaces, graphical interfaces, energy efficient algorithms, real-time data, historical trending, and comprehensive controls.
A natural fit into facility automation, energy management systems allow customers to better understand their benchmark usage, distribution, and power quality. Powerful reporting capabilities can reveal problems with equipment, routing, and general infrastructure. Combined with facility automation, customers can take advantage of load shedding, balancing, and other energy controls. Additional scheduling can be implemented to assure energy is consumed only during occupied or operational hours – or minutes if you’re really aggressive! With open architecture systems, multiple utilities like compressed air, water, steam, and gas can be combined with your electricity, to understand the full usage of your equipment and facilities
Kors Engineering provides services both as commissioning authorities and commissioning agents. Projects are becoming increasingly complex. Kors Engineering can help you deal with:
- Systems that interact with other system (HVAC, Security, Process, etc.)
- A stunning range of new products, protocols, and data types.
- Multiple vendors tied together into a single system.
- Complexity in the products themselves
- A lack of time and expertise in-house to handle certain aspects of your projects.
- From the design time-frame right through the warranty period, Kors Engineering has the experience to assure a properly delivered project.
With a diverse range of experience, Kors Engineering routinely provides commissioning in HVAC, security, electrical, utilities and industrial processes. Utilize our commissioning services to assure your systems, assets, and suppliers are working right for you.

The CCTV system includes digital recording with simultaneous recording and playback. The intercom system has features that include telephone system integration, paging, event logging, CCTV camera call-up, caller I.D. and is capable of connecting multiple substations to one or more master stations. The access control system is capable of arming/disarming the alarm system, controlling access to areas within the facility, history reports, tracking badges, and more. The lighting control system can be interconnected with CCTV, access control, or door control systems. The door control system can be interconnected to the CCTV, intercom, or lighting system. All systems can be controlled via one or more operator graphic interfaces.
Eliminate or reduce overtime by enabling technology for your environment. Defeat proprietary operation (i.e., do you own any equipment or systems that are understood by one or a few people in your business) through commonized architecture and interfaces. Streamline your process and data publishing through automated routines. Utilize technology to replace those areas that require personnel only a fraction of the work day/week/month. Optimize thier time while they are on site, and enhance their abilities through remote viewing and operation
Enable your systems and data through mobile solutions. Utilize Microsoft or Palm solutions to leverage data to your field staff. Collect information on equipment, inventory, meters, locations and labor. Simple, clear interface along with simplified data transfer make the processes effective through all skill levels. Open architecture programming and conduits leverage the existing infrastructure to inform and be informed with multitutes of tasks, systems, and processes.
Increase facility and process uptime by aggregating real-time data into your maintenance system. Communicate run-time limits, system alarms, and other field data to your maintenance systems. Turn your systems into true preventive and even predictive maintenance systems by monitoring temperatures, vibration, currents, and other tell-tale signs of equipment breakdown. Deliver work-orders into mobile PDA systems to allow field workers to remotely address work orders, details, parts, contacts and other data. Managers reap the benefits of tracking equipment history, labor allocation & accountability, and other valuable information.
Now that your facility is integrated and collecting/storing data, utilize Kors experience in Data Mining to turn useless data into actionable knowledge. Kors experience in databases and reporting tools allows us to provide advanced analysis, billing, and critical data reporting on facilities, processes, and equipment. Clear, custom reports can be created to mimic existing processes. Analyze month to month or year to year performance. Monitor conditions that exceed ranges. Discover usage, scrap, failures, trends, and many other possibilities to help you maximize your business’s performance.
