Mining Operation

End of Life PLC Upgrade Project

This project involved the replacement of all Quantum CPUs to M580 CPUs across the coal mine site. This forms Stage 1 of the large step process to change-out all the existing Quantum-based I/O to X80 I/O going forward.

Paradigm undertook the control system design, testing and commissioning to integrate M580 CPUs and associated communications devices from existing Quantum base installation. This is whilst maintaining the existing IO hardware investment and existing large Modbus+ networks (drives and Momentum RIO), convert mobile machines, washplant, train load out and infrastructure Quantum PLC installations to M580 PLCs.
