We are currently recruiting a Full time/permanent Electrical and Controls Design Engineer for our client in Tamworth.
Salary £55,000 per annum
25 days Holiday + BH’s
An experienced industrial automation controls design engineer is required to take over the design and maintenance of the current Schneider control system and HMI and develop it further.
As Tamworth based manufacturers of highly respected corrosion test equipment, they can offer a job that will be varied and rewarding, with many new products to design over the coming months and years, the right candidate can make their mark and quickly see the fruits of their labour.
Corrosion Testing is a means of recreating/accelerating a variety of corrosive climates, within the convenience of a test chamber. It is a useful test for predicting the life expectancy of materials and components under simulated service life conditions. It has gained wide acceptance, particularly in the automotive industry, where many manufacturers have developed their own CCT standards.
The ideal candidate will already have experience in Schneider PLC’s and HMI’s, and using SoMachine or EcoStruxure Machine Expert, allowing for a smooth transition, However if you have sufficient experience in programming in Structured Text on a different brand of PLC we would be interested in hearing from you.
Fault finding control system issues will be a part of your job, as will helping technical support identify solutions to issues encountered by customers. As such a practical understanding on how to test components would be needed, for example using a multimeter for continuity testing, reading voltages and currents.
You will also be expected to keep all electrical drawings up to date using, as such experience in using Autocad for 2D drawings would be advantageous.

Experience with Schneider SoMachine software or EcoStruxure Machine Expert.
Experience programming in Structured Text primarily and Ladder Logic programming secondly.
Experience connecting to PLC’s for updating, programming and fault-finding purposes.
A good understanding on the operation of solenoids, pneumatics, power supplies and electrical system components, as well as having the ability to function test said components.
Have a good repour with our key suppliers, such as Schnedier, and keep informed on new products and component obsolescence.
Be able to design new solutions to customer & management requirements, by sourcing new components and integrating them into the current design.
