When Installing, Retrofitting Automation Systems, you have to Follow some rules that are going to make your work easier, the following are the most important:

Most builders provide similar things in its products, but not all offer similar support to its products and to its users

Research thoroughly before making a decision to purchase

Reliability and simplicity are most important for me

I’m far too busy to try and learn a million options on every piece of equipment.
Choose a reliable platform with a straightforward programming philosophy. I don’t need a programmable logic controller (PLC) in a drive. I already have a short list of PLCs I’m familiar with, and if I need to control something small, I will choose a small PLC I already know and trust to marry with the drive.

Servos are good, but steppers make small position moves better in many cases

Variable frequency drives (VFDs) 

have come a long way and can replace servos in some application, but if you want to go fast with good control, nothing beats a servo.

Standardize as much as is possible

Use a highly regarded brand, and off the shelf is usually best

                                            Buy the Best you Can Afford
