Core Capabilities - Personnel & Resources
Calvary’s engineering team is built on experience and innovation. The Senior Staff and Engineers each have fifteen or more years in the custom automation industry. The company is continually improving the engineering process throughout the Applications, Mechanical Engineering and Controls Engineering teams. The results are fewer engineering and debug hours and more reliable and reusable designs.
Cataloged Libraries of Calvary Standard design elements are reviewed during the Applications Engineering phase, used continually through the design phase, and updated after the debug phase of each project. Calvary’s designs are compliant with applicable codes including UL, NEC, NEMA, ANSI, OSHA, CDRH, FDA, RIA and CE.
