This project will interface with a moisture analyzer and a data collection system located on our plant local area network.
A moisture analyzer is used to measure % moisture content in a product. Previously, the readings were manually recorded by an operator after the measurement was complete. These measurements are critical to the process stability and performance.
The interface is built around the W6100 ethernet shield which allows communication over our plant local area network. This allows the % moisture readings to be historized on a PI data collection system. The PI data collection system node (ethernet TCP-IP Modbus interface) is used to communicate with the W6100 ethernet shield .
The data can now be easily analyzed by engineers for trending and making calculations on the data. The data is now useful for making improvements to the process and troubleshooting process problems.
