Background

DELIN Elettronica is a system integrator headquartered in Modena, Italy.

Established in 1983 as a distributor of electronics systems for industrial automation, the company has since moved its focus from sales to engineering and now offers its system integration capabilities in both automation and process control applications.

The company has recently seen success using equipment from Rockwell Automation at an installation for gas dehydration, glycol regeneration and low-temperature separation within an extraction facility in Otumara, Nigeria.

The project, which started at the end of 2011, immediately saw a collaboration between Rockwell Automation and Delin Elettronica.

It intensified along 2012 when faced with significant standardisation imposed by the end-customer which therefore required a relevant evolution in the control system architecture.

The PlantPAx® distributed control system from Rockwell Automation was recommended due to its modernity, scalability and flexibility, combined with the opportunity of providing process and safety management in hazardous area.

Challenge
  • Technical specifications imposed by the end-customer demanded a considerable evolution of the control system architecture, with safety management at SIL 2 Level, full redundancy and smart equipment management on Foundation Fieldbus
Solutions
  • Remote I/O in redundant configuration
  • EtherNet/IP Infrastructure with DLR technology
  • Rockwell Automation Library of Process Objects
  • High End process controllers in standard and SIL2 configuration
  • Foundation Fieldbus
Results
  • Project standardisation
  • Availability of real-time information on equipment diagnostics
  • Smart equipment management on Fieldbus Foundation
  • SIL 2 compliant Safety Management
  • Further strengthening of an longstanding collaboration for future projects
