Our PLC-based control systems comprise programmed modules which are interlinked to form the control system. This modular approach to programming control allows reuse of logic, enabling speedier control system development; a major improvement over traditional control systems.
Modular programming also enables faster commissioning. The traditional ‘ladder logic’ approach allows some simulation but operators would have to wait until the offshore handling equipment was fully installed before checking the complete control system. The modular approach also allows the control system to be simulated and fully tested on-shore where problems and modifications can be made before the handling equipment is shipped offshore.
