EPS adds ControlLogix and Siemens PSC7 & S7 skill sets to its teams with the addition of a new member

EPS are adding a new team member in the coming weeks but this will add additional ControlLogix and Siemens PCS7-S7 skill sets to the team.

This will mean that EPS can support your operations with the following most common turbine controls systems:

As part of this new team, we will be adding 24/7 – 7 day a week coverage to continue to improve our offerings to our customers. Having engineers available 7 days a week will allow us to provide unparalleled support backed up by our additional engineering team.

The on-call engineers will also be working on our projects so will know all of our upgrade products exceptionally well. Here are some examples of recent projects

ControlLogix

RSLogix 5000 is a programming environment developed by Rockwell Automation for their Allen-Bradley ControlLogix and CompactLogix programmable logic controllers (PLCs). It’s a key tool in the Rockwell Automation suite for designing and configuring control systems.

The software allows users to create, edit, monitor, and troubleshoot programs for ControlLogix Allen-Bradley controllers. It uses a graphical interface that includes ladder logic, structured text, and function block diagrams for programming PLCs. The programming environment is part of the Rockwell Software Studio Automation Engineering & Design Environment.

It supports various communication protocols and is commonly used in industries such as manufacturing, oil and gas, automotive, and more. ControlLogix is known for its versatility and powerful features, making it a popular choice for control system programming.

Siemens PCS7 & S7

Siemens PCS 7 (Process Control System 7) is a distributed control system (DCS) designed for process automation in industries such as oil and gas, chemicals, pharmaceuticals, and others. Here are some key points:

  1. Integrated System: PCS 7 is an integrated system that provides control over the entire production process. It includes features for process control, batch processing, and advanced process visualization.
  2. Engineering Tools: Siemens offers engineering tools for configuring and programming PCS 7 systems. The tools include the SIMATIC Manager and the PCS 7 Engineering System, which allow users to design and configure the control system.
  3. Redundancy and Fault Tolerance: PCS 7 is designed to provide high availability and reliability. It supports redundancy at various levels to ensure continuous operation even in the event of hardware or software failures.
  4. Process Visualization: The system offers advanced process visualization tools, allowing operators to monitor and control the entire production process in real-time. It includes graphical displays, trends, and alarms for effective process monitoring.
  5. Batch Processing: PCS 7 includes powerful batch processing capabilities for industries that require the production of goods in batches. It allows users to define, control, and monitor batch processes efficiently.
  6. Open System Architecture: PCS 7 is built on an open and scalable architecture, allowing for easy integration with other systems and devices. It supports various communication protocols for seamless connectivity.
  7. Safety Integrated: Siemens has integrated safety features to ensure the safety of both the processes and the personnel. This includes safety instrumented systems (SIS) and emergency shutdown capabilities.
  8. Historical Data and Reporting: It provides tools for collecting and analysing historical data, enabling users to generate reports and optimize processes based on historical trends.
