Indianapolis, Indiana, February 14th 2008 - When one of the United States’ largest sports drink manufacturing plants needed to upgrade their alarm paging software they contacted Fields Engineering & Computer Services, a systems integration company specializing in automation and manufacturing-database programming. The Engineering & Maintenance Manager at the facility outlined the needs of the updated system:
  • The ability to retrieve real-time, event-driven alarms and data from all PLCs throughout the facility.
  • The ability to broadcast the alarms and data through an alpha-numeric paging system via email messaging.
  • The ability to send pages based on groups (Production, Facilities, Warehouse, etc), work schedule, and type of information.
  • Page the information (a minimum of 350 unique data points) with minimal delay from trigger to page reception.After careful research of the facility’s needs Fields Engineering & Computer Services chose Control-See’s U.C.ME-OPC software for the plant paging application. According to Chris Fields, president of Fields Engineering & Computer Services, the U.C.ME-OPC software met all of the facility’s objectives. Furthermore the software utilized an easy-to-use development interface as well as direct importing of tags from SCADA programs such as InTouch and RSView. Overall the project yielded significant cost savings in development time, paging costs and faster response time to critical plant conditions.
