Voith eases modernization of S5 controls for paper machines
It would be clearly more expensive and difficult to replace some sensors and the entire central control unit with I/O hardware. As the migration of existing CPU components into new systems with the aid of OnC StepCore57 takes place gradually, the complete migration based on the kit principle can take place at a later time. That makes investment projectable and manageable.
The gradual system modernization and expansion can be done during the planned shutdowns. Integration into existing control systems of all Siemens generations also takes place in the process. The knowledge of Voith employees regarding the paper manufacturing process and automation technology is available during the entire migration. A smooth project workflow is thus ensured.
StepCore57 is offered in three packages, differing in their scope of delivery and service: Basic, Comfort and Premium. These flexible packages can be customized to suit the individual requirements of the plant.
