Work began at this site in 1997 in response to a maintenance problem with the facility’s Packing Sorter that is responsible for delivery of all mail order requests for this clothing provider. Since that time, additional work has included the upgrade of the Packing Sorter control system from a DEC PDP-11 to an Allen-Bradley PLC-5/60L with an RS View application operating on a Windows NT computer. This turnkey project also included the addition of two new Accu-Sort bar code scanners, one on line and the other as a hot back-up, and 4 new packing stations. Complete documentation of the control system was also provided with an Operations Manual, as well as the conversion of over 60 drawings to AutoCad. This project was commissioned without production interruption during their Christmas peak. The Allen-Bradley Data Highway Plus interface was used for the communications between the PLC and the RS View computer, as well as the bar code scanners. Continued work has been performed to include the expansion of the DH+ network to 12 other PLC’s and computers, along with the inclusion of a new Shipping Sorter to the RS View application. More recently, 14 new packing stations have been added to the Packing Sorter bringing the total to 51 of a possible 65. Other work has included upgrades to the controls of various conveyor systems in the facility as requested. Twenty turn-key projects have been performed at this site.
