Weston Serial Industries, Mill Management & Control System Upgrade

Enfield, NSW

Weston Milling is a leading Australian food product manufacturer. The Enfield site is undergoing an automation systems redevelopment program that will modernise the control system, removing existing legacy system risk and improving information management within the production environment.

The site’s existing control system (> 3000 I/O) had become difficult to maintain considering the limited number of PLC spares available – not to mention the HP Monitrol SCADA system which was a single point of failure for the entire distribution operations.

The site implemented a distributed range of controllers dispersed over six floors, along with a Microsoft SQL Server database which was used as the repository for all data/information repository requirements. As there was a need for distributed reporting, Microsoft Reporting Services was used. Citect’s flexibility enabled this interface to be embedded within the SCADA project – leading to an overall integrated look and feel to the solution.
