Automation upgrading on a pharmaceutical platform 5 000 Ltrs

In order to improve the automation design, we worked on:

Equipment sustainability:

  • PLC TSX MICRO SCHNEIDER under PL7 was replaced by a M340 SCHNEIDER PLC under Unity Pro
  • Speed variator ATV320 SCHNEIDER replaced SCHNEIDER ATV18.
  • The exisiting operator station, PC 15’’ IP Systemes including one CPU CELERON 1Ghz, 512Mo DRAM, a hard disk 80Go with operation system Windows XP / replaced by a touch industrial PC 21.5’’ KEP with CPU CELERON 1.83 Ghz, 4 Go RAM DDR3, a hard disk 256 Go and Windows 10 IoT enterprise.
  • Supervision application CITECT was upgraded from version 7.0 to 2018.

We assisted the customer:

  • Automation was tested and qualified before on-site commissionning test, at GOAVEC Engineering plant (FAT), and after commissionning at customer plant (SAT).
  • We profided a training to the platform operators

We optimised the whole unit:

  • The ergonomy at workstation is better for the operators (the stainless steel removable arm makes easier the supervision using –  have a look at photos “avant (before)”/”après (after)”).
  • The layout in the control cabinet is better than before
