Example Project

UGL Unipart Jacking Road

UGL Unipart nominated Fast Automation to be their preferred automation provider and as such awarded a large automation project for the automated maintenance of trains. The system utilises a Siemens S7-300 safety CPU and WinCC flexible touch panel. One difficulty with the automated movement of such large items is safety. The project required a Main Control Panel and 8 large remote panels each with 140 Safety IO on them. Another interesting feature of this system was the radio control pendants with safety
