Advantech's Highly Integrated WebAccess Solution Optimizes Automatic Monitoring and Control Management at a Wastewater Treatment Plant

Posted by Kari Grosser on Dec 20, 2017 10:15:00 AM

A wastewater treatment plant is a basic infrastructure in modern society to purify wastewater created by homes and businesses. It operates 24 hours a day and wastewater treatment comprises multiple processes to remove solids, organic compounds and other matters. Such a complex workflow needs a careful management and it is insufficient only being supervised by plant personnel. Besides, the source water quality can be changed in an instant and any negligence or mistake may lead to improper treatment or cause environmental pollution. Therefore, the automatic monitoring and control system has been playing a very important role in ensuring the treated effluent to meet the environmental regulations and government criteria before discharging into the sewer or river.

Cost-effective PC-based Robot Monitoring and Preventive Maintenance Solution for a High-tech Panel Manufacturing Company

Posted by Kari Grosser on Mar 30, 2017 10:15:00 AM

Project Introduction

In order to improve efficiency and product yield, more and more manufactures such as car, panel, wafer, metal, chemical, plastic, food and other fields began to implement robot applications be leveraging its efficient, durable and precise characteristics, resulting in the industrial robotic arm that plays an indispensable key role in the factory. However, when a large number of robots are introduced into the automated production processes, one major worry is that sudden equipment failure will affect productivity. In particular, the high-tech manufacturers have to run 24 hours non-stop production and any production line halt will bring a great loss. Therefore, collecting the robot information through sensors and identifying potential problems in advanced have become the important parts of the stable production capacity.

Optimize Your Facility Management for High-tech Factories

For hi-tech factories that operate 24 hours a day 7 days a week, the occurrence of unstable voltage, fire alarm, gas leaks or liquid leaks is likely to reduce production rate and even result in downtime incurring huge losses. These factories, for example, plants for fabricating semiconductors, TFT-LCD panels, multi-crystalline solar cells, or LED, usually use facilities such as high-voltage equipment, emergency power supply system, nitrogen or other special gas system, ultra-pure water systems, waste water treatment equipment or clean rooms to supply continuous production. Advantech Facility Monitoring and Control System is especially designed for hi-tech plants to provide automatic monitoring over their facilities, which takes control of power supply systems, water treatment systems, gas supply systems, clean rooms and other plant facilities and closely watches over their status with automatic detection and real time alerts and alarms which will notify plant workers if any abnormal situation happens, so as to reduce downtime as well as minimize production losses.
