To meet the end customer’s criteria, the OEM provided Quad Plus with a components list and interlocking scheme, and we used our existing control scheme previously developed for this OEM and their machine. The Quad Plus team provided the drawings and hardware, built the panels, and developed the PLC/HMI software, along with commissioning and training.
Our solution included a complete electrical package with several enclosures to house VFDs and PLC I/O. We utilized a Control Logix L83S Safety PLC and Point I/O in remote enclosures. We also included Power Flex 755 drives and a FactoryTalk View Site Edition SCADA. Quad Plus engineers then developed software to control the machines based on design reviews with the OEM and the end customer.
Once the installation was complete, the Quad Plus team provided hands-on operational training during startup. We also presented formal maintenance training classes for PLC, SCADA, and drives. These classes onsite over the course of several weeks to meet the plant’s production needs with maintenance and engineering personnel.
