George T. Hall Company recently upgraded a 25 year old Modicon 984 PLC system at a cement plant utilizing the Modicon M580 PAC. The M580 offers improved functionality with multiple protocol options, Ethernet remote I/O, improved cybersecurity and an advanced programming tool called Control Expert. Utilizing the I/O conversion adapters the field wiring remained in place minimizing down time and risk. The existing software application was also converted to retain the prior investment in software development furthering the ROI of this conversion. The improved functionality and future proof solution made this an all-around win for the customer.
