Replace PLC/DCS systems safely and without downtime

Replace PLC/DCS systems safely and without downtime

When replacing PLC/DCS systems, it is vital to avoid cabling errors and to keep plant downtimes to a minimum during the migration process. PLC/DCS migration interfaces from Weidmüller provide you with a secure way of replacing the control level. Even adaptations or changes to the infrastructure can be performed simply and quickly without any need to intervene in the field cabling.

Space-saving bridging system

Convenient PLC/DCS changeover within a few hours

The PLC/DCS migration with our new migration interfaces does not require any additional space in the control cabinet. The rack system takes the place of the old controller and combines the connection level and the new controller into one compact unit. All connection components are easily accessible by simply folding down the upper level.

Space-saving bridging system
Your benefits
  • No additional space required in the control cabinet
  • Lower level: connection of the existing pre-assembled PLC/DCS cables to the new adapters, upper level: PLC/DCS is placed
  • Pre-assembled PLC/DCS interface cables connect the adapter cards with the new PLC/DCS
  • The correct retrofitting components for each PLC/DCS

Service

Simple system configuration

Simple configuration tables from Weidmüller make it easier for you to choose all the elements you need. The lists are based on the ratio of old to new PLC/DCS cards and precicely describe the rack system, the front adapters and the pre-assembled cabels.

White paper on migration solutions

With Weidmüller PLC/DCS migration interfaces, there’s no need to make any changes to the field cabling, so this shortens the amount of time needed to upgrade the entire plant. Indeed, what used to be a PLC/DCS migration process that lasted a good few weeks is now an update that can be completed in just a few hours – including the system tests. Production facilities can return to operating as normal even after the briefest of downtimes. Request the free white paper and learn more about our solutions.
