Airport Baggage Conveyor/Baggage Handling System Upgrades
Outdated and obsolete PC computer hardware, software and PLC (Programmable Logic Controller)-based automation systems require periodic retrofits to newer technology components that can be supported and maintained. With PC computer hardware, multiple software applications, and PLCs serving as the central control for BHS systems, the challenge is how to replace outdated and/or obsolete components without impacting existing operations.
Brock Applies a Proven Zero-Downtime Approach to System Retrofits. Our approach includes:
- Off-site system testing using emulation software
- Off-site factory acceptance tests where our clients test drive and validate the new system
- Installation of the new system in 'parallel' with the old system to ensure quick and complete reversibility at any time during commissioning
