Automated with Rockwell Automation As a Rockwell Automation partner, we offer our customers the best in process control solutions, both as a service in the Innovation Center, and as part of a system purchase.

 

FEECO and Rockwell Automation process control solutions are provided with current technology, motor control centers, programmable logic controllers, and data collection systems with advanced technologies for reporting.

Process Control in the Innovation Center

The Innovation Center runs on a Rockwell Automation PlantPAx® distributed control system (DCS).

 

Based on an Allen-Bradley® ControlLogix® platform and EtherNet/IP™ network, the DCS incorporates intelligent motor control devices, including Allen-Bradley PowerFlex® AC drives for variable speed control and intelligent motor overloads for feedback and alarming.

 

Local monitoring and supervisory-level visualization capabilities provide the real-time information and reporting needed to control, monitor, and document each step of a process utilizing FactoryTalk® View, FactoryTalk Historian, and FactoryTalk VantagePoint® software.

 

Returning customers can access and report on data from previous tests, giving them the starting point they need for continuity in testing.

 

During testing, the following data points can be monitored, trended, and adjusted in real-time from a single interface or mobile device:

 

  • Amps
  • Feed Rate
  • Flow Rates
  • Horsepower
  • Hertz
  • System Pressure
  • Temperature
  • Torque
  • Gas Sampling & Analysis (Oxygen, Carbon Monoxide, Nitric Oxide, Nitrogen Dioxide, Sulfur Dioxide, and combustibles discharged from various thermal processes)

 

The control system also allows for various data points from specific time frames to be selected and reported on, providing a valuable tool for process analysis.

Equipment & System Automation Purchase

In addition to the automation that can be utilized in the Innovation Center for material testing and process development, we can outfit any FEECO equipment or process solution with the same data collection, reporting, and automation capabilities.

 

We can also integrate third party equipment into your control system. Available secure remote access by a Rockwell Automation expert provides unparalleled troubleshooting capabilities.
