Merichem, Dongfang China Compact Logix
PLC control Vacuum Belt Filter system. Using Prosoft configuration Software created configuration file for 240 integer registers reads and writes. Prosoft MVI69-MCM module was installed into a compact logic rack. Created a new subroutine to write the necessary data in to the proper Modbus address to be pass to the DeltaV via RS485. Set up and debugged all the discrete and analog points. Made necessary Alarms limits changes according the MOC documentation. Vacuum Pump would not correctly trouble shot the pump failure logic to make it work and require rewriting a portion of the pump failure logic. There was a valve that was going on and off for not real reason I had to tag to the correct Controller tag to make work. I had to debugged the Level controller logic as well. Modification was also requested by customer to delay by 2 second on the last four step of the startup sequence. I also removed dead left over code that was not being executed. Delta V was using PCSD modules for the programming.
