The client approached DMC with a functioning and operational system that they wished to expand. DMC took the existing code and architecture and added increased functionality and capacity through the addition of a remote rack for the new compressor skid. DMC also developed custom locked Add-On Instructions to protect proprietary information. This allows end users to view most of the code, facilitating maintenance and troubleshooting, while protecting sensitive information.
Rockwell’s Flex I/O was used to add additional skids (controlled from the current PLC) to the existing installation via redundant ControlNet communication. DMC worked with the client to facilitate a smooth commissioning through I/O checkout and Factory Acceptance Testing as well onsite commissioning support to bring the system online.
