Scope of work:
To upgrade the existing electrical control panels to PLC controlled system.

Stainless steel panel

Festo Solenoid bank

Yoskawa drive.
Design: Electrical panel, Drawings, Operators manual, Recipe Control and alarming pages.
Installation: We had to install the first panel and commission the panel over a weekend. We started on Friday and the vats were in production by Monday morning at 4h00. The next two panels were started Saturday at 12H00 and completed at 01h00 the next morning.

Commissioning: We were assisted by a good group of cheese makers, who bought into the system easily and took ownership of their equipment from the start.
