Abstract
A process automation system based on PlantPAx platform was developed for a lyocell staple fiber plant with annual capacity of 15000 tons. The system has realized simple operation and optimization of the plant, full-automatic startup and shutdown of the plant units, control and diagnostics of malfunctions, logging and documentation of all operation sequences and process data. With the application of distributed architecture, redundant technology and Ethernet/IP industrial Ethernet, it has shown high performance and high reliability during the pilot production in 2015.
