According to Gary Walters, Project Manager for Frost Engineering, “One challenge for this project was
how to allow a modification to a process variable on the SCADA system to be copied back to the remote location without being overwritten by the constant polling. The flexibility in the communication driver of FactoryStudio was key to making this work.”
FactoryStudio was installed for operator control of the remote water system locations from the central office, to read the real-time data from a master PLC and make it available to the operator in a logical and understandable way.
FactoryStudio system provides collection of real-time data so performance can be monitored and analyzed later if necessary. It also increased their ability to respond to Alarms more quickly and efficiently has been terrific.
