Configuration Software WinCC Application in Concrete Production
In order to make concrete production more stable and efficient, a weighing and monitoring system is constituted which provides visualization of process and a powerful Human-Machine Interface by SIMATIC WinCC. After WinCC configuration software has connected with PLC effectively, data can be transmitted to and received from PLC through communication by HMI screen. Then, PLC can control the field devices independently rely on its high reliability and high anti-jamming capability. This kind of monitoring system is more efficient than other non-automatic control systems, and it improves accuracy and reduces the production time. Monitoring concrete production through WinCC can save manpower, reduce raw material waste, improve the level of automation and production efficiency. It provides a new control method for concrete production.
