Van Aalst Marine & Offshore based in Dordrecht specialises in the design and supply of pneumatic systems for the loading and unloading of dry materials such as cement and barite to and from, for example, drilling platforms.
Short lead times and very limited commissioning times require reliable software that is quick to configure and easy to put into use. The system also has to be easy to handle during operational use.
On the basis of the Schneider M340, JB Systems developed software which enables the software to be automatically generated using the engineering list supplied by Van Aalst. The right HMI screen is also generated from the PLC code by making use of “typicals”.
In addition, JB Systems developed a new intuitive HMI (Human Machine Interface) that is coordinated to the users in terms of operating philosophy. JB Systems specialises in User Interface Design for industrial installations.
