Taipei, Taiwan, August 23, 2007 - MOXA is pleased to announce the release of two new success stories from the manufacturing automation market. The stories focus on the petrochemical and mining industries, and are real case applications that use Moxa’s solutions for naphtha cracking and coal mining applications. Both stories are now available on Moxa website in the Manufacturing Automation theme site.Optimized Manufacturing with Networked DCS system at Naphtha Cracking PlantThe first story involves FPCC (Formosa Petrochemical Corporation), the largest petrochemical group in Taiwan, which uses Moxa’s network devices to create an Ethernet network as the main communications medium for the plant’s DCS (distributed control system). The major control problem associated with naphtha crackers is to regulate the conditions in the cracking process to control the ethylene output. In order to optimize the manufacturing output from the Naphtha Cracker, one of the many challenges faced by the designers of FPCC’s “Naphtha Cracker” was creating an extra-reliable Ethernet network for transmitting important control and device management signals. In this story, you will see how the ruggedized Ethernet solutions from Moxa satisfied the users’ requirements for this industrial application.Using Ethernet to Build Hazard-free Monitoring Networks for Mining SitesThe second story comes from one of China’s main national “95” construction projects. The Zhangji coal mine in Anhui Province is using Ethernet technology to form a reliable network backbone for its monitoring and control systems. All of the production and environmental monitoring information at the mine must be collected synchronously through a reliable network, with coal mine site reporting the production and environmental status. The project has achieved several new records on applying new technologies, high manufacturing efficiency within small territory, and the most economic investment with high-end, efficient facilities, making the Zhangji Coal Mine a benchmark for the mining industry. The two success stories are available on Moxa’s MA theme site at In addition, the stories will be included in Moxa’s 2007 Success Story Book.
