Given our long-standing partnership with Apex and our previous success in this area, they brought us in on the job to help with automation of the wastewater solution.
We created a fully featured PLC/HMI solution which we incorporated into their MCC, creating a seamless, fully-automated product. The solution included over 50 I/O, two 22kW Softstarters and one 40kW VSD. It also has built in remote access to allow the Apex Engineers to dial in whenever required to tweak the operation of the plant and address any alarms – wherever and whenever they happen to be. The solution gave Apex a significant cost saving in not only capital expenditure, but also in ease of project management; with on-time and on-budget delivery and only having to deal with one point of contact for all their electrical engineering and design requirements.
