The Beast Clock Upgrade – Maple Ridge City Hall

Worked with legendary steam clockmaker Mr. Ray Saunders, https://landmarkclocks.com/, we implemented a new controls system with Omron PLC/HMI for the aging hydraulic system. We removed the old relays/timers. New features to allow Ray to tune the Beast’s movement interval, add operation/curfew hours, manual jog function for troubleshooting. We brought this spectacular roadside attraction “back to life”.
