From the day after Christmas on through fours days past the New Years holiday, two teams of Delta Engineers were busily working long 12+ hour days testing, repairing and certifying Modicon remote I/O and Modbus Plus networks during a plant holiday shutdown. This project included over a dozen production lines, each with both, remote I/O systems and ModBus Plus systems. Almost all of the Modbus Plus systems had multiple (up to 4) segments. This made for a total of 59 separate and individual certifications performed.
All of these systems had been experiencing issues and required repair. Many previously unknown issues and problems were found and repaired. Additionally, dozens of undocumented changes, modifications, replaced/updated equipment, spare connections and hidden splices were located, documented, and repaired where necessary.
Upon bringing the plants production lines back up, after being down for 10 days, all of the newly certified systems came up with no issues or errors.
Shown here is the collection of certification reports, one for each line and system, that were provided to the client. The documents show and detail the repairs, all of the test results and any recommendations for the network. These reports prove to be invaluable in times of additions, modifications or troubleshooting.
