Application Story
Water Flows in Iraq
In Badaah, Iraq, David Watts adds finishing
touches to his work in the Nasiriyah Water
Treatment Plant,his home away from
home for nearly eight weeks. The largest
water treatment facility in Southern Iraq,
the Nasiriyah Plant supplies 10,000 cubic
meters per hour of fresh drinking water to
approximately three million Iraqis.
When Watts arrived in Iraq, he discovered
Allen-Bradley PLCs to be limited in their
programming with only 10 percent
completed. The Modicon Quantum PLC was
roughly 80 percent ready.
“The GUI was also limited and static in its
appearance and function,” Watts said. Individual
ControlLogix processors were placed at the
three pump stations along the Garaaf River.
The fourth ControlLogix was placed in the
control room to function as a SCADA host
for the plant. The Quantum PLC, which has
20 Remote I/O drops, was used to control the
backwash of 20 individual filter cells.
“Then came the problem of getting the
Quantum PLC to communicate with the
ControlLogix,” said Watts. “I had never
used a ProSoft Technology® interface
module before. And, of course there were
no manuals or cables on location to help me
with this, so I called ProSoft Tech Support.”
ProSoft Technical Support Engineer Scott
Lee answered the call. “You could tell right
away that he had his hands full,” said Lee.
“But he obviously knew how to program
and only needed a little nudge in the
right direction to get the ProSoft Modbus
Interface up and running.”
The Plant takes water from the Garaaf River
and delivers it into 10 large clarifiers to
allow the sediments to settle. Alum is then
mixed with the water to allow any remaining
particles to coagulate prior to sending the
water to the flocculators. Next, the partially
cleaned water is sent to sand filters where a
majority of the bacteria is removed. Finally,
chlorine is added to kill any remaining bacteria
and the water is sent to 2 underground storage
tanks. The new plant went online in early
2007. “This new water facility rivals any state
of the art water treatment plant we have in the
States,” said Watts.

Wastewater Treatment
Made Easy with Modbus
Elian Jessen of HV-Turbo in Denmark
recently delivered and installed compressors
for the Jerusalem Wastewater Treatment
Plant. The existing plant network was
Genius-bus. In order to send and receive
information between SCADA and the HVTurbo main panel, a GE-Fanuc 90-30 PLC
was installed in the HV-Turbo main next
to the already installed Allen-Bradley SLC.
Both the A-B SLC and the GE PLC needed to
communicate via Modbus. “The customer
called me and said they had to communicate
with Modbus and was that possible to do
with an Allen-Bradley SLC 500?” said Elian
Jessen of HV-Turbo. “I knew about ProSoft
Technology® so I told him ‘Yes, no problem.’
ProSoft Technology kindly forwarded to us
a manual on the module so that HV-Turbo
could see it was not that complicated to set
up the communication.”

Just Can’t Work Without It!
There are a total of 8 Atlas Copco
compressors in the Shanghai plant. Six of
these compressors are the ZH model, which
is a centrifugal type, having an Allen-Bradley
SLC™ 5/03 embedded in their control
systems. The impeller design of the ZH model
is state-of-the-art, with capacities starting at
3,000 cfm, in both single and multi-stage,
these compressors can provide discharge
pressures ranging from 25 to 400 psig.
The remaining two compressors are the
Z-pack models, equipped with built-in
Modbus communications. This created a
problem in networking the compressors
together, since the Allen-Bradley SLCs are not
Modbus compatible. The System Integrator,
Shanghai Yuandong Science & Technology,
contacted Rockwell Automation Shanghai and
ProSoft Technology®.
Shanghai Yuandong installed ProSoft’s 3150
Modbus interface module into the SLCs
onboard the Atlas Copco compressors, which
then allowed all of the compressors to link to
the HMI Host Station via the DH-485 network.
“By using ProSoft Technology’s 3150-MCM
module, we were able to directly connect
Allen-Bradley’s SLC with Atlas Copco’s
compressors using the Modbus protocol,”
said Chen Zong Liang, General Manager of
Shanghai Yuandong. “With central control,
it was possible to stagger the actions (start,
load, unload or stop) of every compressor
according to the charge situation.”
“Not only did this help increase production,”
said Lenus Hong, Regional Manager for
ProSoft Technology, “It created a cost savings
in terms of electricity and maintenance costs.
All of this translates into higher profits.”
When asked how the ProSoft Technology
module improved the plant processes,
i.e. functionality, speed, convenience, or
financial benefits, Liang simply replied, “It
just can’t work without it!”

Triangle Machinery Company wanted
to provide a control solution that was
non-proprietary, enabling packaging
professionals easy access to update
applications when needed. Triangle
Machinery required the flexibility of a
Programmable Logic Controller and the
processing speed of an industrial computer
to have optimal performance in their Vertical
Form Fill Seal Bag Machines (VFFS) application.
Triangle Machinery found a solution in the
Rockwell Automation ControlLogix PLC with
ProSoft Technology’s PC56 in-rack PC.

The industrialized PC56 computer delivers
the processing power required to control
the speed of the Multihead weigher. The
PC56 connects directly to the backplane
of the ControlLogix PLC, which gives
the application an extremely high data
rate exchange between the PC56 and
the ControlLogix PLC. The speed of the
calculations for the Multihead weigher is
pivotal to the speed and efficiency of the
VFFS application, as some of the larger
applications have up to 24 buckets per
Multihead weigher.
•Ideal for migrating existing PLC/SLC
applications
“The PC56s high speed communications
across the ControlLogix backplane permit
the tightly integrated PC-based application
Triangle Machinery was looking for,” said
Ken Majerus, Regional Sales Manager for
ProSoft Technology®. “The PC56 is the ideal
solution for this type of analytical and data
centric applications.”

Flow & Field Application Solutions
Application Story
Flow Management for
Camisea Pipeline
Facing one of the greatest pipeline challenges
in Peruvian history, ISI-Solutions, the
system integrators for the project, knew the
application needed to rely on a cost-effective
automation solution that combined the power
of control and flow computers to integrate,
operate and maintain pipeline control.
Camisea needed an internationally recognized
name brand solution with local distribution.
“We recommended the use of a Rockwell
Automation platform early on as we wanted
to add a highly functional backplane and
flow computer,” said System Integrator
Fernando Dorgan. “The challenges were
significant. Camisea’s pipelines needed
flow management control with a solution
that could fit the Allen-Bradley backplane.
What really made the Rockwell Automation
platform functional for Camisea was ProSoft
Technology’s involvement in solving
Camisea’s flow computer needs with their inrack AFC Module.”
The pipeline SCADA system has two control
centers, the primary control center will be
the Lurín Main Control Center (MCC) at
Lima City Gate (Lurín), and the secondary
will be the Ayacucho Contingency Control
Center (CCC), located in the surroundings
of Ayacucho city. The latter will be used in
case of a major problem at the MCC location,
or interruption of communications to the
MCC. Local Control Systems will control both
Camisea pipelines and bring information to the
SCADA Host system at the control centers to
supervise those pipelines and their associated
facilities: receiving, pumping, scraping, and
block valves stations.
Since both pipelines run parallel and close to
each other for 550 km, in many instances they
will share a common local control system
(i.e., a common RTU or PLC).
Local Control Systems will be implemented
with ControlLogix™ and CompactLogix™
family of programmable controllers from
Rockwell Automation.
