The Simocode Pro Application is often in areas related to explosive conditions, high availability and sites using raw materials such as the petrochemical industry.
DBI Control have recently been working on a project for a multinational manufacturer and distributor of biocides, flame retardants, personal care ingredients and other specialty chemicals.
We were asked by our client if we would be able to design, manufacture and install a control panel for an indoor factory environment to control the levels of various chemicals in the tanks.
To make this happen, we networked the Siemens Simocode Provia Profinet with the Siemens Operator Panels.
The levels of the chemicals are consistently measured by the 3UF7011-1AB00-0 Siemens Simocode Pro which measures the readings in the pumps and displays the information on the 3UF7210-1BA00-0 Siemens Operator Panels on the front of the panel.
Each screen is monitoring a different pump, so as soon as there is an irregular reading, a member of staff will see it and be able to take the correct measures to resolve the problem.
The Simocode offers a flexible and powerful communication interface via Industrial Ethernet for automation as well as operation and monitoring systems.
With its help, all functions of engine protection and control, as well as interlocks, calculation ofoperational, diagnostic, statistical data and a quick connection between the automation level and the engine starting combination are realised.
To generate data for the current protection module, overload alarms, current limit values, response messages On / Off, and calculation of working time, Simocode Pro uses current and voltage parameters as base values.
The Operator Panels are installed in the control cabinet door and plugged in to the Simocode units to provide a display of chemical levels and the devices are coordinated to work perfectly together.
Operator Panels can be plugged onto a basic unit 2 or expansion module. They have 7 LEDs for status display and 4 user-assignable keys for manual control in languages including English, Chinese and Russian.
The advantages of using the Simocode Pro & Operator Panels are …
Full motor protection 0.3 A – 630 A
Integrated management functions
Reduced downtime – active statistics and diagnostics
High availability and safety – standalone operation
