A leading global automotive components company was having issues with their vertically integrated equipment used to manufacture automotive seating and interior systems.  We assured the auto manufacturer that we had a technical specialist and an application engineer on-site to troubleshoot the issue. We discovered that the issue was with a component in the circuit, not in the PLC. The PLC was performing as expected, turning on its output when it should, but the device on that circuit was not responding. Once the issue was identified, we quickly fixed the problem.
