Golconda manufactures ASTA (The Association of Short-circuit Testing Authorities) certified Motor Control Centres. The flexible design means compartments are configurable at the factory or on-site using withdrawable trays for easy maintenance.
Our MCC panels are manufactured to Form 4b (types 4 to 7 according to the clients needs) where all functional units and the bus bars and incoming/outgoing terminals are separated from each other.
Motor control gear as specified by the client can be fitted according to the plant and the fuse switches are all equipped with a test feature. Intelligent control from the SCADA or PLC system can be provided.
The HMI is the all-important interface that allows the user to monitor, control and adjust the system. Its design is crucial if the plant is to be easy for the operator to control.
At Golconda we work closely with the client to precisely define the HMI using our standards as a template and adapting these to the customer’s own needs.
Golconda engineers SCADA systems generally using Rockwell’s RS View@32™ or Wonderware™ by Invensys. Other systems are available including Citect or Intellution iFIX if required.
We are an officially appointed systems integrator for Rockwell Automation and other PLC manufacturers. Our software engineers undertake regular product training to ensure that development facilities are always kept up to date with the latest products.
We provide Rockwell systems based on CompactLogix™, ControlLogix™, FlexLogix™ or MicroLogix™ hardware and develop software using Rockwell’s RS Logix 5000, RS NetWorx and RS Linx. We also provide solutions using Siemens (Series 7), etc.
PC and PLC Hardware is carefully chosen in consultation with the client to provide a tailor made solution which gives the right balance between cost, capability, future expansion and local field support. We provide centralised or distributed systems according to the demands of the application or the clients preference.
Golconda design, manufacture, test, install and commission control panels ranging from a small, wall-mounting unit for simple machine control up to a complete PLC based process control system with ASTA certified Motor Control Centre. Panel housings are selected from industry standard ranges or custom built to suit clients' requirements. Components are taken from proprietary ranges such as Telemecanique, Group Schneider & Omron, which are all fully certified.
Applications include process control, batch weighing with recipe storage and logging, monitoring, etc.
Twenty-five years experience of applying PLC solutions to everyday control problems give Golconda’s engineers the practical skills and know-how that customers appreciate when it comes to rapid, trouble free start-up on site. Why not let Golconda’s experience work for you?
