Energy consumption control system of Chart Ferox, a.s.

The control system consists of 10 process stations connected via RS 485 network, using Amit PLCs (ADIS,ART 4000,APT 3100,AMINI and V/V DM modules). Some stations have APT 1000 display panels. The control system regulates the building heating and hot water production by the framework of 5 local boiler-rooms (2 x 400 kW, 2 x 300 kW, 160 kW), complemented by ROBUR hot air units and infra emitters (MANDÍK a KASPO).


The control system provides:

the regulation of quarter hour electricity consumption maximum
switching on/off the lighting (based on sunshine, working hours and weekends)
regulation of natural gas reserved capacity consumption with the accuracy of 1%
controlling the technology of
container pressure testing
high pressure N2 generator from liquid nitrogen
sound signalisation of breaks
sound signalisation of the start/end of working hours
sound signalisation of fire alarm
air conditioning system in the paint-shop
signalling failures via SMS message in GSM network
measurement and archiving the consumption of energy.

Two sewage plants will be connected to the system very soon. The monitoring and control will be done via PROMOTIC SCADA system with remote Web access.
