SQL Server, RTIP & SCADA


Problem

  • Draw towers (DTs) produces optical fibres at very high speed .
  • To monitor the quality of fibre, multiple sensors was fitted at various stage of production.
  • These sensors collect data about Lumps, Draw Breaks, Airline, BFD, and many more parameter.
  • Using these data management could get insight on various KPIs like up time, Machine Efficiency, Draw yield, Pack yield, Optical yield, Optical yield, and Overall Efficiency.
  • This data feed into database through Sensors > PLC > Historian > SQL Server.


Benefits

  • After production , during testing of optical fibre, defect data was provided in excel.
  • System output was displayed to Operators and Management on SCADA and RTIP.
  • Sterlite has its production units at multiple locations across the India.
