Software Design & Commissioning
Scope Of Work
Panel Modifications & Software Design
The job involved adding a new system to an existing PLC for an effluent plant. The control panel was reconfigured to provide Inverter control for three new pumps and a DOL drive for a skimmer. The PLC I/O was upgraded to incorporate high level and continuous level control on three tanks, automatic valves, and a flow meter. The existing software on the PLC/HMI was modified to provide a simple flow diagram with automatic control of each piece of equipment, as well as manual stop/start facilities for the pumps and valves on a maintenance screen on the HMI.
The commissioning lasted three days. I/O checked, manually controlled valves via the HMI and tested every aspect of the system.
Compere Systems engineer provided one day onsite training for operators to learn the system. Upon Completion of training the operators were provided with a system manual.
