Mobile Automation and Jalna Dairy Products 

A combination that “ferments” great results. 


Recently Mobile Automation was given the opportunity to provide ongoing Automation support for Jalna’s operations in Thomastown. Jalna are a well known producer of top quality yoghurts, and to ensure their operations were kept running efficiently and with minimum downtime, were seeking the services of a company that could maintain the equipment in their hi-tech manufacturing facility. As with any manufacturer of consumer products, meeting production targets is critical to a company’s ongoing success. Jalna relies on Mobile Automation’s expertise and fast response to ensure these schedules are not compromised should a breakdown occur. Mobile Automation’s service technicians are all familiar with HACCP hygienic protocols in food manufacturing plants which is vitally important to ensure zero contamination of product. 


Mobile Automation’s first objective was to back up all the PLC and HMI programs throughout the facility and provided the client with an electronic hardcopy backup, in case of component malfunction. 


As Andrew Warton from Jalna said, “We identified an area where we were vulnerable to a critical stoppage should there be a component failure on one of these devices. Having a reliable backup gives us peace of mind going forward.”


The team at Mobile Automation look forward to a long and mutually rewarding partnership with this prestige client.

Blue Cross Aged Care Facility
Livingstone Road Vermont  

SAR Controls were recently awarded the contract to supply electrical switchboards for the Blue Cross Vermont Project.

The Electrical Contractor required a switchboard manufacturer with the resources to provide a turnkey solution on their behalf. This involved working closely with the Project Manager, site contractors & the electrical consultant to design & engineer a realistic solution.

Due to the nature of the Blue Cross site, there was significant space restrictions for the installation of the cubicles. Working with the Electrical Contractor, a switchboard design, which allowed access into the switchroom & also provide simple cable terminations was achieved.

The Electrical Contractor was very pleased with the final products.

The switchboards provided were as follows:
  • Site Main Switchboard – 3000A, Form-3B, 50kA, IP56, Outdoor Construction
  • Blue Cross Main Switchboard – 2000A, Form-3B, 36kA, IP54, Indoor Construction
  • Temporary Main Switchboard- 400A, Form-2B, 25kA, IP56, Outdoor Construction
  • Take-Off Boxes – 250A, Form-2B, 16kA, IP42, Indoor Construction
The Blue Cross Main Switchboard was constructed from Elsteel Modular Switchboards.
