Decentralised Control in Turnkey Handling Solutions

Specialist turnkey materials handling and packaging systems provider, Industrial Conveying (Aust) Pty Ltd, is using decentralised control methods to quickly execute projects with greater flexibility.

Decentralised control uses various fieldbus networks and vendor specific solutions, which are designed to the point where all field items, including safety technologies, are local to the field machinery.

Decentralised design translates into modules of equipment; and all complete projects being workshop tested with all control elements at the company’s manufacturing site.

Often, speed to market is a deciding factor when making decisions on materials handling projects and associated new equipment, so the use of fully decentralised control in executing its projects is taking Industrial Conveying to the next level sought by bulk handling companies. By combining the electrical design and manufacture with mechanical design and manufacturing processes, equipment design is enhanced and complete turnaround time of equipment is vastly reduced.

Overall, final delivery and installation time at the premises of the client is also significantly lowered as electrical installation begins with mechanical installation. Decentralised fieldbus installations also have the advantage of reduced field cabling needs.

The advantage of this is final commissioning of the system can be achieved only a couple of days after mechanical installation.
