Safe power supplies in the process industry

From |

Certification, redundancy, and functional safety

The Quint Power Plus version of power supplies are ideal for applications that place extreme demands on availability and safety. All types of faults regarding system availability are monitored by the functions included with the Plus version. Thanks to the combination of integrated redundancy, double OVP, and SIL 3 approval, plus the protective coating and ATEX/IECEx approval, Quint Power sets new standards for safe supply in the process industry.

Reliable solutions for wastewater treatment: Pump automation technology with PumpControl

Water pipes are required almost everywhere, especially for water and wastewater distribution. There are several types of water pipes in well-built and constructed water distribution networks, including large diameter main pipes, which supply entire cities, smaller branch lines supplying a street or group of buildings, or small diameter pipes within individual buildings.

Installation of efficient and reliable methods for wastewater treatment plants is one of the main challenges of our time

Wastewater treatment plants are supplied with wastewater from sewer systems. These sewer systems can be extended for many Kilometers via pipe distribution networks so that the wastewater can pumped into the treatment plant. There are several pumping stations with installed pumps that aids the flow to move in the right direction. Every single pump has to have a control system, to ensure operational reliability.

PLCnext Engineer

HMI devices can now be developed using a PLC programming software called PLCnext Engineer (a free of charge software) and stored on the PLC. It allows users to utilize popular programming environments to have real-time control with advanced computation. Customers have the possibility to use any HMI from other suppliers or a laptop, a tablet or all of these at once.

In the scenario when any of these HMI hardware devices break, you can simply swap it with a new one. You only need to browse the IP address of the PLC and your new HMI is up and running. This is because the HMI programming pages are stored on the PLC.
