Project:    Light Water Packaging System PLC Retrofit

Client:    3M Specialty Materials Division Decatur, AL


Project description:

An Omron C120 PLC was previously used to control a packaging line for 3Ms Light Water Product. Upon failure of the obsolete C120 model PLC, it was necessary to do a fast-track retrofit to get the line back into operation. The existing C120 PLC was removed from the panel. The new CQM1 series PLC was installed and existing wiring re-used. The line was then started up and proven to operate as before with the new control system. This retrofit was accomplished in less than three working days.
