Easy-to-learn and intuitive configuration was the crucial factor why Sasol choose the Freelance DCS.
The project could be put in operation in a very short timeframe
At Sasol in Brünsbüttel the AC 700F controller has been installed to control a pneumatic conveyor system for aluminum oxide powder. This system was controlled using a PLC in the past. Sasol is a convinced, long-standing user of the compact Freelance DCS and thus decided to use the AC 700F controller when replacing the PLCs.
Customer requirements were the transfer of the existing application into the new controller, the subsequent optimization of process control through the use of diagnostic features and short setup and installation times.
In addition, the system was to be configured by one of the customer’s application engineers, who had never worked with the Freelance DCS before. After a short training period and with ABB’s support during the start-up phase, it was possible to successfully put the project in operation in the shortest timeframe.
