Automation & Construction for Tobacco Threshing Plant

Innovative Solutions

We provided a complete automation and controls solution for a new tobacco processing facility. Specifically, we designed and implemented a control solution for the processing of raw tobacco. The system consisted of 36 ITAC furnished control cabinets containing Rockwell ControlLogix PLC hardware, motor starters, and variable frequency drives. The SCADA system consisted of Rockwell FactoryTalk View SE implemented in a server/client configuration which included redundant servers and four client PC’s.

Assured Success

Our design build approach allowed us to simultaneously engineer, fabricate and install, thereby shortening the schedule to start up. Best of all, the project was completed under budget. Since start up, ITAC has been the facility’s sole supplier of process control services.
