IAC specialises in the design, manufacture, installation and commissioning of variable speed drive systems, PLCs, SCADA, MCCs and control instrumentation. We are the UK’s leading electrical systems integrator, operating on a global scale from a 50,000 sq ft production facility in Newport, South Wales. 

IAC provides bespoke solutions across a variety of industry sectors, including paper, metals, pharmaceuticals, materials handling, food and beverage, chemicals, printing, textiles and water. We have a dedicated team of engineers who are fully trained in the application and use of PLC and drive products, and who are able to provide a seamless service from concept to completion.

As well as Mainline production, IAC offers a Fastrak service for small projects requiring a rapid response. In both cases we have a proven track-record of delivering projects to the agreed specification on time and within budget. 

Quality, reliability and attention to detail are the key ingredients of our success. They are the foundations upon which our reputation has been built, and we actively seek to maintain them by implementing an ISO 9001 Quality Assurance system which is audited and approved by NQA. 

To find out more about who we are and what we do, please head over to our website or get in touch with our customer service team on 01633 293000.

Variable Speed Drive Systems

IAC has been developing and implementing variable speed drive systems for over 40 years. In the 1970s we began manufacturing Vanguard DC drives under license from Italy, and in the following decade we developed the 484 Analogue DC drive module and the TAFI, which at the time was one of the first zero speed, high torque AC VVVF inverter drives on the market. 

By the 1990s, IAC was finding it hard to match the investment being made by the likes of Siemens, ABB, SSD and Control Techniques, so a strategic decision was made to withdraw from drive module manufacture and instead concentrate on our expertise in their application. 

Since then we have been building partnerships with leading drive manufacturers throughout the world who provide us with the systems that enable us to combine our proven application knowledge with the latest digital technologies. We are now an Approved System Integrator for all of the world’s major drive module manufacturers.

Rapid Deployment System, (RDS)

Our Rapid Deployment System (RDS) is a valuable weapon in the battle against anti-social behaviour, crime and disorder. It allows CCTV cameras without wires to broadcast their pictures back to a control centre via several wireless methods, enabling councils, police forces and businesses to monitor areas that are not protected by fixed line systems. RDS is quick to install, highly responsive and is in most cases much more cost-effective than installing transmission cabling for a wired CCTV system.
