The Czech company MCAT AUTOMATION s.r.o. implemented a new control system of enterprise energy consumption in the Pilsner Brewery.
A new control system provides monitoring and measuring of these facility parts, which contribute to the Pilsner production process:
All monitored and measured facility parts are supplied by the Inmat devices. Inmat devices are connected through the Teco PLCs. All gathered data from PLCs is transferred into the Reliance SCADA/HMI system, installed on the Control System's computer for this purpose. The Reliance system also behaves as a DDE server for InSQL database where the data is stored.
