R&R Engineering are a leading Control Systems Integrator and Switchboard manufacturer.
We Design, Manufacture, Deliver and Commission a full range of LV switchboards and control and monitoring systems associated with several different industries.
The above example is one of several different types of Borehole Pump Control Panel manufactured for local company Northern Innovations and installed at a local Dairy Plant.
This panel provides all the automatic controls for controlling the flow of water pumped from 3No borewells drilled on the client’s own land. These particular pumps are supplied from Direct-On-Line Starters in the panel with RCD protection although other projects have used Variable Speed Drives to supply the motor which can prove more accurate and energy efficient.
Automatic control was achieved via the Siemens Remote I/O hardware and accessed from the panel mounted HMI which all networks back to the clients main PLC. This Remote I/O picks up various signals from the plant including the borewell level sensors, pressure transmitters and feedback from the pump starters. This enables accurate control of the amount of water being pumped from the borewell to be used in the clients cooling systems. Programming of this system was carried out by R+R Engineering.
Provision was also made within the panel for breaking into the clients Fibre Optic network cabling to enable communication from this panel back to the clients main Control Room.
Similar systems have also been provided for various Coca-Cola plants located in Nigeria and included provision in the panels for air-conditioning units.
This project was delivered to site in early 2018 and commissioned by R&R Engineering to complete the full turnkey package offered by our experienced team.
