Technical description of the installation
Each crane uses a BIT2312 WiFi modem to create a wireless connection to the factory network. The standard program PLCControl.Exe running on a PC server is constantly monitoring the 2 cranes. This PC server is connected to a 2-wire network installed throughout the factory.
At each appropriate location a control box enables the crane operator to operate the 2 cranes. The operations include up, down, left, right, speed, etc.
The PC server registers the location of each crane using DPBIT50 digital input components and DPBIT40 output components in conjunction with standard relays and sensors. Based on this information the PC server allows operation from the appropriate control panel only.
