2018 Siemens Automation Summit

ACE invites you to join us at the 2018 Siemens Automation Summit - a user conference for manufacturing professionals who use Siemens automation technologies and are interested in cybersecurity and safety. You will share best practices, network with Siemens management and your peers, consult one-on-one with technical experts, receive free training, and have the opportunity to interact with the latest products and solutions from Siemens.

Event Dates: June 25 – 28, 2018
Event Location: JW Marriott Marco Island Beach Resort – Marco Island, FL

As a Siemens Solution Partner, ACE has been invited to lead a Breakout Session. ACE’s Chris McCaslin will lead a discussion entitled “Building Up Steam While Opening Up New Doors: New PCS 7 with APACS+ Terminations.” The presentation will focus on how ACE minimized the downtime associated with retrofitting PCS 7 hardware in place of APACS+ systems by utilizing custom wiring solutions via APACS+ migration cables (provided by Siemens) for a forest products boiler system. The methods used to “hybridize” the system during the phased retrofit project will be explored to give an understanding of the tools used to keep information flowing smoothly. The benefits gained by migrating to a PCS 7 Advanced Process Library (APL) configuration, including the interlock block functionality as well as accommodating new HMI design concepts native to the APL, will also be discussed.
