After the implementation of the whole system planned out by IMA Soluciones Tecnológicas based on ABB System 800xA, the operators can handle a large amount of information on the plant under the same system. All the necessary information can be found on the integrated and configurable environment, according to the types of users accessing it.
The biggest change that the system has brought is the flexibility of the user interface, which can be modified depending on the user.
This allows each user to focus on the actions to be taken, with all the information necessary for that particular action. There was an instant reduction in the probability of errors, resulting in an increase in productivity.
Marco Donoso, Tissue Electrical Control Maintenance Manager of CMPC, had this to say about the IMA Soluciones Tecnológicas and ABB solution, “The distributed control system System 800xA is
known in our two plants, and in our experience this is the system that gives us greater confidence and security.”
The biggest benefit to CMPC from the integration of 800xA was that their engineers and operators will be able to operate the interface in a personalized way, according to the particular requirements of each user, a feature that wasn’t available with any other solution in the local market.
The other advantage with System 800xA is that energy savings, either electric or thermal, is very apparent. The system brings a significant decrease in energy usage, which very important for
