ControlLogix L73 Installation
Power from waste is a great idea, providing green electricity for the grid. The smooth running is essential for water companies
In this instance, the legacy multi-level control system consisted of seven Allen Bradley PLC 5’s controlling one stream. They were close to end of life and, therefore, unable to provide optimal levels of control with delayed communications using legacy DH+ protocol. The project required replacement with a super quick ControlLogix L73, to consolidate the seven legacy units into one and provide the opportunity for process optimisation, with reduced maintenance costs.
Z-Tech’s multi-skilled teams understood the core objectives, working together across the specialist areas in order to complete this change over in the shortest possible time.
