Allen Bradley SLC 500 PLC and Panelview HMI program for BOC EM vacuum pump test facility

Allen Bradley SLC 500 PLC and Panelview HMI program for BOC EM vacuum pump test facility
01/10/2021

BOC Edwards enlisted Bubble Automation to help with their pump test facility at Shoreham in West Sussex.

The system comprises of four Wonderware Intouch applications with thirteen Allen Bradley SLC-500 PLC's & Allen Bradley Panelview HMI's using DH+ networks performing the control and pump test duties. A further Wonderware Intouch application using Microsoft SQL is used to store all the test data, this also tests and records pump noise data.

Bubble Automation were asked to improve the systems performance as there had been several problems with the network speed, causing occasional loss of important test data. This required examination of the SCADA and PLC sections that were associated data transfer and storage The overall aim was to reduce the network traffic while maintaining pump test times.

The system is now very reliable with no loss of data since our restructuring of the PLC and SCADA programs. Minimum disruption to the pump test production schedules was also paramount during the restructuring process.
