In 2001, the "Matsushita Communications Czech" company began construction on the new Panasonic assembly plant in the industrial zone situated near Pardubice. At that time, it was the largest foreign investment in the Czech Republic.
DIGIPRO s.r.o. of Roznov pod Radhostem implemented a new HVAC monitoring and control system for the cell phone and car audio system production plant. The control system includes thirteen TECOMAT NS950 RAPID PLCs with CPM-2B central units. Measuring and control system circuits provide optimal heating, ventilation, and air-conditioning for the entire plant, including office buildings and the storehouse.
The visualization was created by the Reliance SCADA/HMI system, which allows monitoring operations made by the operating staff, recording significant operating data and analyzing emergency and malfunction conditions.
Furthermore, the main control room PC reads data, archives it and transfers it to other two monitoring stations. The control system also provides measuring the total energy consumption and control of the quarter-hour maximum.
We are very happy to say that the investor's satisfaction as well as the system operation made so far has shown that the Reliance system fully meets the project requirements.
