KCC chose to implement PlantPAx®, the modern DCS from Rockwell Automation. The PlantPAx system combines process and discrete control in one system, and provides redundant control of every phase of the production line.
The system delivers integrated architecture, leveraging the ControlLogix® L7 controller series, motion and electronic operator interface (EOI) products. This combination offered significant benefits compared to a traditional physical infrastructure. The PlantPAx library and pre-configured faceplates increase efficiency in the HMI development phase, and as a result decrease total engineering time and cost.
With the Rockwell Automation Library of Process Objects, KCC was able to use a more flexible engineering tool that delivered full integration of logic and visualization functions; ultimately resulting in shorter overall engineering times. Competitive pricing for components and software licenses made this an easy choice for KCC.
In addition to the Process Libraries, KCC deployed a PlantPAx system with FactoryTalk® AssetCentre asset management and FactoryTalk Historian data visualization to collect and deliver real-time and historic variable in a clear, easy to read format for set up, analysis and customer presentation.
