Oil Well Control System Upgrade using an Allen-Bradley Control Logix PLC

Posted in Allen Bradley PLC Programming, Oil and Gas, Rockwell FactoryTalk

DMC worked with an oil and gas company to update and standardize their well pad control systems. DMC built a scalable program that can be configured by the client to fit each of their well pads of various sizes. This upgrade gives the customer the future flexibility to drill additional wells at a given asset, without requiring a major control system overhaul.

Control System Consolidation and Upgrade

Posted in Allen Bradley PLC Programming, Civil Infrastructure, Energy and Utilities, HMI and SCADA Systems, Manufacturing Automation and Intelligence, Oil and Gas, PLC Programming, Siemens S7 PLC Programming, Siemens WinCC and WinCC Flexible Programming

DMC modernized and consolidated a control system used to purify water for a dual cycle, gas turbine power plant. Three separate control systems utilizing a diverse set of hardware and software were all combined into a single TIA Portal V15 Project. DMC provided a turnkey solution, handling the hardware purchase and install in addition to software. We worked with the client about nine years ago to make different additions and upgrades to the original system. The switchover from the old system to the...

Flexible Automated Test System with DMCquencer

Posted in Custom Software and Hardware Development, LabVIEW Programming, Test and Measurement Automation, Web Application Development

DMC developed a flexible automated test suite for performing electrical tests on a variety of data logging devices and sensors. The software was based on DMC’s reusable test framework called the “DMCquencer,” which allows the client’s engineers to configure their own test sequences without requiring programming knowledge. A SQL database logs the test results. The results are then reviewed in a custom web application developed in ASP.NET Core. The web application also provides...
