The client was using a Rockwell system to control and monitoring its canola plant. Updates to the PLC and HMI systems had been released that addressed known issues, so Autopro was contracted to upgrade the client's system to the latest release.

The following systems were upgraded:

  • PLC system
  • HMI servers located in the Control and Boiler rooms; this included the HMI server and HMI client packages
  • HMI system located in the Supervisor Office was upgraded to the latest RSView Studio development software
  • PC workstation located in SEED plant was upgraded to the latest client software
  • PC Workstation in the Extraction Unit was upgraded to the latest client software

The updated HMI software also required each work station operating system to be updated to the latest Windows operating system.

Autopro's deliverables also included a written implementation plan, commissioning including full function testing and operator training with live processes, and project management services.
