The Compact CIP is an economical, single tank, mobile unit that’s more than an industry standard – it’s a value-added differentiator. CSI’s team of engineers utilized instrumentation from Endress+Hauser and IFM to create this reliable and repeatable system that’s mobile and powerful – and is half the price of an average entry-level CIP skid.
CSI relies on Rockwell Automation as an industry leader, and most CSI customers request Rockwell Automation in their specifications.
CSI is leveraging a Compact CIP controls system designed for the modern production plant using Allen-Bradley® products, including Micro850 controllers, PowerFlex 525 AC drives, PanelView 800 graphic terminals, and Stratix 2000 unmanaged Ethernet switches as standard.
The CSI team selected easy-to-install Micro850 controllers designed for larger standalone machines and remote automation applications that require flexible communications and I/O capabilities. PanelView 800 graphic terminals offer touch screens with display sizes compatible with small controllers. Featuring high-performance processors and high-resolution displays, the built-in Ethernet and serial communication ports support a variety of networks and offer improved usability with remote monitoring capability.
PowerFlex 525 AC drives feature an innovative, modular design to support fast and easy installation and configuration. The compact drives offer embedded EtherNet/IP™ communications, USB programming, and standard safety features.
Stratix 2000 unmanaged Ethernet switches are ideal for small control networks. These industrial-grade switches do not require configuration and use simple cable connections for easy connection with Logix-based controllers.
This Compact CIP solution provides ease of skid integration to The Connected Enterprise, connecting to processing plants via Wi-Fi or Ethernet communication and can provide data logging for critical process parameters.
