Plant conversion from S5 to S7 - brilliantly simple!

At the famous German manufacturer of spreads, Zentis in Aachen, the remaining S5 control technology had to be upgraded to S7 control technology. Here Zentis was looking for a solution in which the existing S5 peripherals could be preserved so that the necessary conversion measures could be kept to a minimum and without long plant shutdowns.

The solution they were looking for here was found with the VIPA IM 306DP interface modules. The existing digital and analog S5 modules could be kept and, with the help of the VIPA IM 306DP via Profibus DP, simply coupled to the parent control.

It was also an advantage that the conversion work could be done faster and downtime reduced to a minimum. Frank C├╝pper, investment advisor at Zentis, expressed his satisfaction with the solution found and wants to adopt it in other parts of the plant.
