3G Enabled Industrial Control System

Client Background

 

The client is a leading player into Oil & Gas, Power and Solar & Energy Management Systems. The client also has diverse business interests with subsidiaries in Automotive systems, Infrastructure and Pharmaceuticals industry.

Project Information:

 

Monitoring and control of critical Industrial Processes is very important. The client was working on a process automation project and they needed a system with below specifications:

  • Multiple Digital and Analog Sensors connectivity options
  • 3G Connectivity (PCMCIA form factor 3G module)
  • MicroSD card for local Storage
  • 7″ TFT LCD Display with touchscreen
  • Wired connectivity of 10/100 Mbps Ethernet and USB 2.0
  • RS485 Communication for Modbus
  • RS232 for debug and console
  • 12V Voltage Output

As there was no off-the-shelf system available, client decided to get this system developed. Client chose Teq Diligent as a partner for this development based on past experience of successful project execution.

Solution:

 

Teq Diligent worked closely with Client’s field team to understand the process requirements and spec finalization. The scope of work involved delivering working prototype and working with client team for system testing in field. The solution offered included:

  • Freescale (Vybrid Series) Processor based system
  • 0-24V Isolated digital Inputs
  • Universal Analog Inputs (5-20mA Current/0-5V Voltage)
  • 4x Isolated Digital Outputs
  • Connectivity: 3G Module, Ethernet, USB OTG, USB Host, RS485, RS232
  • 7” LCD with touch screen and SD Cards for storage
  • Firmware development
  • Application for Cloud Connectivity
  • Mobile App for remote data monitoring

Benefits:

 

The system met field requirements and client was able to successfully achieve the process automation. The project was delivered on schedule to meet client’s project delivery time-lines. Teq Diligent’s experience working on industrial systems helped complete the project in time.
