The existing S5-150U PLC of the "Drahtbundbeitze" installation and the S5-100U PLC of the "Fahrwerksteuerung" were replaced with a new S7-400 control system, including the WinCC SCADA software for visualising the process. To enable wireless communication between the PLCs, Moekotte chose to apply Profibus (Wi-Fi principle) modules and antennas in the new configuration.
The delivery of a turn-key solution in the form of a new Siemens controller to replace two S5 controllers. Also, the design and installation of a visualisation package.
As a result of the new control software, the production process now runs without interference and the WinCC software allows for the visualisation of the production process.
