Over the last 20 years EOSYS has completed numerous Woodyard projects on multiple PLC and HMI platforms. Three recent projects were controls upgrades. While each project contained similar elements of work, such as upgrading controls from an obsolete PLC to ControlLogix, each one was different in size and scope.
All projects included a DCS interface and one project required an Industrial Network Design utilizing the CPwE standard as well as migrating to the Rockwell Automation PlantPAx® modern DCS platform. This work enhanced the operator’s responsiveness and efficiency by gaining better visibility into the process. Another project involved upgrading all the controls, including the logic and graphics for new and existing equipment, integrating a new FactoryTalk® View SE HMI platform, Intellicenter MCCs and ControlNet VFDs.
