Upgrade PLC system batteries factory

The automation system in the powder department of a battery factory had to be technically modified after 25 years. After inventory and validation of the electrical schematics, we made a new design in EPLAN. The control of the motors, placed in one large board with a length of 12 meters, also had to be replaced. The available space in the technical rooms was limited and we only had one extended weekend of 4 days to do the dismantling, assembly, testing and commissioning.A suitable contractor was selected on the basis of a clear construction file. The team of our software engineers together with the contractor were able to hand over an upgraded and working production plant to the operators on Monday morning.
