Process Industries have to meet with more and more complex and competing demands. SIMATIC PCS 7 with it’s functional variety, flexibility, and performance, has the potential for implementing innovative solutions that meet the special challenges of the process industry. SIMATIC PCS 7 benefits from its seamless integration in Siemens Totally Integrated Automation (TIA),
As well as transparent process control, SIMATIC PCS 7 also offers monitoring of product quality and key performance figures for the efficient operation of your process plants, and it ensures more flexible processes, higher plant availability, and investment security.
The operator interface offers a high level of user-friendliness and simple, intuitive interaction with the plant. Ergonomic symbols, task-oriented faceplates, uniform representation of status information, and optimized alarm functions allow safe process control.
Automation of Ultra-Pure Water Plants requires precise planning and careful construction of control panels. It’s a matter of pride that the first plant in INDIA of UPW (Ultra-Pure Water) has been commissioned by Cotmac, by Intelligent Integration of Simatic PCS7 Solution.
In this particular application UPW is being used for washing of Electronic components to avoid the shock in PCB’s. Raw water is used to go first for RO (Reverse Osmosis) Process. During this process dissolved solids and TDS present in water are eliminated. In the next stage water has to go for UF (Ultrafiltration) Process, where suspended solid and solutes of high molecular weight are retained, while water and low molecular solutes pass through the membrane. Again the water passes through the EDI (Electro deionization) – a technology that utilizes electricity, ion exchange and membranes that dissolve impurities from water.
Cotmac’s Solution with Simatic PCS7 was the natural choice of customer. The system offered includes HOT Redundant System, Soft communication for VFD’s, Event Based Synchronization, Human Machine Interface with real time process, flexibility and reliability solution given to customer. Finally, the Automation System is integrated with PLS (Process Life Safety) System for Total Plant Automation.
Benefits of our Solution:
- Reduction of operating costs.
- Centralized Operation for all the processes through HMI.
- Ease of diagnostics.
Existing installations can easily be expanded or converted by using the SIMATIC PCS 7 Controller.
