Selection of an automation contractor for an elevator or granary is one of the most important tasks facing the owner. This task is important mainly because automation is a key and final stage in new construction of modernization of an existing elevator. The ability to perform design, equipment supply, mounting and commissioning of ACS equipment — all automation of a turnkey elevator – is an advantage that companies with experience and appropriate permits, and certificates can perform.

Design of elevators and granaries: sections, mandatory scope of work

Standard design scope for elevator objects includes automation of the following processes in grain processing and storage during technological equipment work:

If we consider the scope of work not from technological processes, but from the whole complex, then they can be divided into the following:

  • Power supply of an elevator;
  • Automatic process control system of the elevator (automation of the elevator);
  • Illumination of an elevator and auxiliary premises;
  • Grounding and lightning protection;
  • Video surveillance.

What types of elevators / granaries are available? The main differences

INFOCOM LTD automates all types of elevators. Depending on the type, the hardware-software complex and the required degree of reliability of the control system are determined:

  • Grain receiving (it is also called procuring) elevator — receiving grain from farms.
  • A transshipment or port elevator — an elevator when changing transport routes (reloading from railway transport to sea vessels (there are very high requirements for fault tolerance, since the idle time of a sea vessel is large)
  •  Basic elevator — long-term storage of grain.
  • Production elevator at the mill, feed mills and similar plants. For the storage of grain in a volume that can process the plant.

Work performance and guarantees

INFOCOM performs  full scope of automation works starting from Requirement specification for design up to the  system comissioning into operation. The earlier automation company is engaged in project the more correct are all solutions for the automation system and possibilities of technological equipment are realized.

After completing the work, we carry out all installation work (cable trays, cable routes, cabinets for automated process control systems, local control panels) and commissioning. After all the work has been completed, we offer warranty and post-warranty maintenance of automation systems, upon request..

Our training center suggests trainig for operators, maintenance engineers in Siemens Simatic and WinCC for automation system service.
