Automation Plus completed an upgrade to a new Honeywell Experion platform from an existing Honeywell TDC3000 system that also included Allen-Bradley PLC-5 control.
The customer had a critical schedule for this project with a very limited downtime window for their business needs. There were also several technical challenges including custom Modbus and OPC interfaces to third party devices, DCS networking requirements, and hardware space limitations.
- Experion C300 control platform.
- Allen-Bradley PLC-5
- The project was completed in multiple phases due to the size and schedule complexity, Phase I included four months to define standards, specify and order hardware, execute
programming, complete testing, and install the system on-site.
- Automation Plus executed the project through fast track programming and created an
approach that minimized risk while still meeting the schedule.
- Automation Plus maintained constructive interaction with the DCS vendor, the customer’s IT and controls staff, and the electrical contractor in order to keep the project moving.
