Whether it’s poultry, cattle, or pigs – the animal feed manufacturer focuses on providing organic quality when it comes to feeding farm animals. It has to pay special attention to traceability and high product quality to ensure its products receive organic certification. That’s why BHS Control Systems ensures that its control systems are up to date. In 2020, a major update was carried out to upgrade the old PVS 2.12.1 control software to the WinCC Open Architecture Version 3.15 SCADA system from Siemens. The connection to goods management systems was also modernized. The system was updated over a weekend to ensure that downtime was kept to a minimum. Production could gradually be restarted first thing on Monday morning.
As an organic animal feed manufacturer, the company places particular demand on what the software solution can offer in terms of traceability. The highly customized setting could continue to be used after the extensive update had been performed. BHS Control Systems always implements individually tailored control solutions based on WinCC OA and via programmable logic controllers (PLC).
