Prior to delivery, our controllers are subjected to intensive hardware and software test phases - that also serve the purposes of quality control.
In our test facilities, hardware and software simulations of the actual installations are run. This enables the logic of the wiring and the PLC sequence program to be tested before the installation is brought online.
In this virtual operational scenario, actual production and installation parameters are used to bring about environmental conditions that are as close as possible to actuality. The complex correlations of the material flow are modelled and corresponding production data is generated. This enables unforeseen faults to be detected and eliminated prior to actual operation.
In this phase, the alarm system of the SCADA system informs the operator of discrepancies from the process parameters simulated and of any anomalies.
