The purpose of this project was to provide the electrical process controls upgrade for an existing automotive paint facility.
New global controls architecture was used wherever possible. A combination of standard panels and custom designed panels were engineered while utilizing the new controls architecture. New MCPs and VFDs were purchased. Existing control panels were re-used. All I/O was removed and replaced by Allen Bradley Flex I/O with DeviceNet communication. New ControlLogix PLC programs and Siemens WinCC HMI programs were created for all systems.
The Carrier Cleaner system upgrade included a control-reliable design and a new DeviceNet interface with two relocated and reused robots.
