MIPAC working wonders with Invensys’s Wonderware Information Server

Tuesday, September 09, 2014
MIPAC is assisting plant managers to access and act on real time process control reports via a smart device.

Glencore’s Ernest Henry Mine recently engaged MIPAC to introduce Invensys’s Wonderware Information Server technology which generates a live snapshot of how a plant and its equipment is performing and allows for immediate management.

For example, a mine operations manager will know where a bottleneck in production is or a maintenance manager will learn the run time of equipment and can plan which equipment can go for maintenance or be shut down.

It avoids double handling of data and is easily tailored to individual sites.

As an add-on you can even send information about critical breakdowns to someone’s phone or SMS.

The Server easily integrates with the Wonderware system platform but it is also suitable for use with other system platforms.

MIPAC can readily commission this product for mineral processing plants and food and beverage manufacturers.

To learn more about how MIPAC can make this server work wonders for your company, feel free to email me.

Independence helps MIPAC’s clients stay in control

Tuesday, November 12, 2013
MIPAC is always able to recommend the best-possible control platform for our clients because we are independent.

Being vendor agnostic means we consider the pros and cons of each platform and our clients are advised to progress with the most-appropriate one.

MIPAC engineers are highly qualified, very experienced and familiar with a wide range of control systems and technologies including:

  • Distributed Control Systems (DCS) — e.g. Foxboro and Yokogawa
  • Programmable Logic Controllers (PLC) — e.g. Modicon and Siemens
  • SCADA systems — e.g. Citect and Wonderware.

Click through to our news story to read some case studies which show how MIPAC’s independence results in tailored control solutions for our clients.
