Challenge

Create a PLC-based control panel mounted to a 2-Pump Vacuum System. 

Application

This job required a vacuum system for the Commercial Building industry that includes a custom mounting base with drilled mounting holes and pre-tapped holes.  Altogether, this system operates with 2-Pump motors and a vacuum to clean dust while working with granite and marble. As a result, it requires readouts and values for the proper procedure. 

MIS Solution 

Straightaway, MIS Controls’ advanced knowledge of PLC control panels aided the UL508A and NEC certified system assembly. Equally important, our team utilized various testing methods to ensure that the design meets all specific customer conditions. These methods included: 

  • Utilizing water to test for leaks in new environments and effectiveness of suction. 
  • Applying air pressure to the system to check for proper distribution and security of the enclosure. 
  • Allowing the customer to cycle the system at the MIS Controls facility as final quality assurance. 
  • Adhering to the UL508A and NEC regulations for assembly practices.

MIS Results

The final system consists of a PLC panel wired to the base-mounted air components of the vacuum and pumps. Overall, MIS is responsible for 25 systems over five months with a 7-9 week lead time for this project. Finally, with our highly experienced team, this system meets UL508A requirements and Code 3 of the NEC. In sum, we encourage custom designs that necessitate unique solutions.
