Overview

PLC PANEL UPDATES AND MODIFICATION

ControlTouch was contracted by Material Handling Systems to provide updates and modifications to five existing ControlLogix Programmable Logic Controllers (PLC) and VersaViews at the Federal Express Facility. This project consisted of the programming changes, updates to the operations and maintenance manuals, commissioning, and 24-7 standby on and off site after start-up.



Some of the Features Included in this Project:

  • Accomplished work with zero facility down-time
  • Designed and fabricated control panels specifically for the customer and their needs

CONTINUED PANEL WORK

We were also contracted to provide the necessary control panels and subpanel assemblies to support the replacement of aging PLCs at the same facility. This work involved replacing 26 Allen-Bradley PLC 5s with the new ControlLogix processors. These PLCs controlled nearly 7,000 IO points and 756 conveyors. This work was completed while keeping the facility in operation.
