The whole system is controlled and operated with a PLC Siemens S7-400 in hotbackup via optical fiber. Also the Profibus network is redundant to ensure continuous operation of the system. As an operator interface is going to be built an Intouch Wonderware supervisory system that can monitor and archive all system variables as well as view states and alarmsof various components. The automation system will also include the insertion of a GSM modem totally controlled by the PLC to interface with the operators of the system through SMS messages.
