PAC solution controls classification process
When Canadian National Railways looked to upgrade the process control system for its classification yard operations, it turned to a National Instruments PXI platform controlled by LabVIEW Real-Time and reconfigurable I/O modules with onboard FPGA technology to meet the challenging control system requirements.
The control system upgrade was implemented by Avema Technologies. The unique, innovative solution uses reconfigurable I/O and a LabVIEW FPGA Module, along with 5B Series and SSR Series signal conditioning modules.
Director of industrial and real-time solutions Shahzad Sarwar says: "Making extensive use of the LabVIEW FPGA Module for this demanding signal conditioning, data acquisition and deterministic control application, along with using LabVIEW Real-Time on a PXI platform, we have implemented a challenging mission-critical system with National Instruments cost-effective, versatile technology.
"The NI solution meets and exceeds the present system requirements, and remains promising for future performance enhancements."
