Managed System Services Extranet topic page - Your access to exclusive content for process automation

  • Entry
The Extranet provides you with access to further exclusive content in the Industry Online Support. You can thus benefit in various project stages from additional service tools, technical descriptions, sample projects and much more.

Extranet articles and Extranet article areas are only visible to contract customers.

Example projects

Example projects contains pre-made, standardized and readyinterconnected equipment modules and Control Module Types. Using this sample solution as a basis, numerous instances with different parameter assignments can be generated and widely integrated in adapted form in automation solutions. The PCS 7 project is configured to be hardware-independent and can be flexibly incorporated in existing projects.

Stirred Tank Reactor
The unit template provides a template that comprises all typical components of a stirred tank reactor, their open- and closed-loop control, the necessary logic and interlocking as well as the visualization. It is modularly structured and based on standardized equipment modules.

PCS 7 Unit Template "Stirred Tank Reactor" using the example of the Chemical Industry
This automation solution has been developed for a fermenter in discontinuous operation in the field of white biotechnology. "White biotechnology" is used for industrial manufacturing of products by means of biotechnological processes, using microorganisms or cells which produce the desired product by nature.

Distillation Column
The quality of material separation is measured by the purity of the separation products, i.e. after concentration by low and high boilers in the head and bottom outlet. The measuring of these concentrations by means of online analyzers is so complex, that it is omitted in most plants.

Plymerization Reactor
During the manufacturing process of polymers, the monomer, comonomer, hydrogen reactants as well as the catalyst and cocatalyst, among others, are added and stirred in the reactor. The use of an MPC control (Model Predictive Control), improves the quality of the manufacturing process or the product.
PCS 7 Unit Template "Polymerization Reactor" using the example of the Chemical Industry
This example project presents a fluidized bed dryer, with which the energy consumption can be optimized by using an MPC (Model Predictive Control) controller. Drying operations require a high amount of energy, which is why optimum and economical drying (as dry as necessary) is the objective.
