DESIGNING SCADA SYSTEMS FOR AUTOMATED EQUIPMENT AND PRODUCTION SECTINOS
One of the company’s lines of activity is the development of automated numerically controlled equipment. Such equipment includes special SCADA (Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition) software as an integral part thereof.
In addition to interface control and data presentation to the operator, this software is capable of performing a wider range of functions relating not only to control and maintenance of a specific equipment model. The SCADA system may be developed for a production section or a production line, it is capable of ensuring the processing of data coming from a large number of transducers and the controlling, by special algorithms, of the actuators performing production process operations according to the preset parameters.
The SCADA system may include access terminals intended for use by employees enabling them to obtain information on current production tasks or input information on completion of such tasks or be immediately alarmed on malfunctions which for any reason are not detected by transducers.
Independent SCADA operation is generally inefficient. For smooth and consistent operation, it is to be integrated with a plant control system to provide bidirectional data communication informing on the start, parameters and completion of a production process. Therefore, development of the SCADA system is closely related to upgrading and automation of the existing equipment and production processes of the plant.
Our company uses Siemens Simatic WinCC\WinCC OA as a software platform to develop SCADA systems. Functionality of such software and practical experience in implementation of complex projects allow us to successfully accomplish tasks of control automation for both individual machines and intricate production lines.
If you are interested in cooperation with our company to upgrade and automate your existing equipment or production lines, do not hesitate to contact us. We are always ready to participate in such work or to share our work experience and expertise in this field and discuss various approaches to practical implementations.
