Ravensdown Fertiliser – SLC Rack Replacement

Ravensdown Fertiliser – SLC Rack Replacement

With many SLC processors and I/O modules either obsolete or with long lead times, Ravensdown have commenced a proactive SLC replacement program.

This particular section of works included the following: 

  • Replacement of Allen Bradley SLC hardware with Control Logix 5069 hardware.
  • Retirement of Allen Bradley Remote IO communications (RIO) and replace with Ethernet IO communications.
  • Addition of distribution MCB’s to segregate field circuits.
  • Update (conversion) of AutoCAD electrical drawings to Eplan.
  • Update of PLC configuration – Control Logix CPU required upgrading to an L8x processor.
  • Fibre cabling and ethernet switches.
Global Composting - Geelong

Global Composting - Geelong

This two phase project involved electrical design, MCC build, installation and commissioning of HotRot Twin 1811 composting system (www.globalcomposting.solutions).

Full turn key project featuring:   initial electrical demand calculations, solar and generator interfacing, electrical schematics, software development, machine safety, installation and commissioning.

The control system consists of an Allen Bradley MicroLogix 1400 PLC, Beijer iX X2 Pro12 HMI, Sick Flexisoft CPU0 safety relay kit and eWON remote gateway.

Phase 1:      Travel to Geelong was not an option due to Covid restrictions; this required us to further develop our electrical schematics and create cable  schedules for local installers.
We provided remote support to installers.
We remotely commissioned the system (via eWON).

Phase 2:     We travelled to site for electrical installation and commissioning.
