The Challenge

Design and implement a Paint production batching system that monitors and controls the output of paint material tanks into Latex Paint Mixing Tanks. The status of the production process has to be reported to their ERP system.

The Solution

United Automation developed a GE Digital Cimplicity Server system using operator nodes for Monitoring and Control along with connectivity. Emerson RX3i is being used as the main controller to access pump and valve control for the material tanks. The status of the production batches is being logged to a SQL Server database where the Sage ERP retrieves the data.
