CONTROL SYSTEM FOR GENERATORS IN A NUCLEAR POWER PLANT
Wajax needed expertise in control system design for a pair of generators deployed as the third emergency power supply at the Point Lepreau Nuclear Generating Station in New Brunswick. The client also needed a project manager to ensure the smooth installation and delivery of this complex system.
The software architecture was designed according to the IEC 61131-3 standard and encapsulating as much as possible the control blocks (Add-On Instructions). This makes it easier to reuse the codes and thereby validate them. The project was managed in a collaborative way with the end customer and the various stakeholders, through a project manager under a web portal accessible to all.

COMPLETE FACTORY AUTOMATION AND DATA SUPERVISION AND ACQUISITION SYSTEM In February 2010, Dunn-Edwards awarded Centris the mandate to fully automate the paint production processes of their new plant in Phoeniz, Arizona. The project started with a phase of architecture and requirements definition, followed by the complete specifications writing, from the receiving of the raw …Learn more
As part of a major update to Bombardier’s American customer’s rolling stock control systems, Centris has been mandated to migrate the passenger vehicle control platform to a newer version, ready for the next 15 years of operation. The mandate was to migrate the ISaGRAF ™ platform already used by Bombardier into these latest-generation vehicles and …Learn more
In 2013, Pratt & amp; Whitney is embarking on the development of three important highly automated production lines for their Longueuil plant. Centris is mandated to develop a communications interface between the main SCADA (WinCC ™) which manages all the operations of the three lines and the ERP centralized management system (SAP ™). This important …Learn more
Lumenpulse is an undisputed leader in high-end LED lighting. Concerned with the irreproachable quality of their products, it commissioned Centris Technologies and its partner, CGO Mécanique, to design and develop automated test machines to seal products intended for outdoor use. The Centris team, together with the CGO engineers, have developed a custom-made machine that performs …Learn more
CONTROL SYSTEM FOR VEGETABLE WAREHOUSE Liné Machines needs a small communications interface box for their Flexitool product. This communication interface must also act as an amplifier for certain control signals from the engine, to the different instruments. This allows network connection of multiple Flexitools and control them through a centralized PC. Two small circuit boards …Learn more
CONTROL SYSTEM FOR VEGETABLES WAREHOUSE The mandate was to design and build a new vegetable warehouse controller. This controller had to be equipped with a user interface and contain the logic necessary to perform the air conditioning of the warehouse (potatoes in this case). All to allow a better conservation operation throughout the winter and …Learn more
PRODUCTION FLOOR INFORMATION SYSTEM The mandate was to provide a system for collecting production data, calculating key indicators, and displaying them on screens distributed throughout the plant. This system called PIDS (Plant Information Display System) had to connect to machines used simultaneously on four production lines. These machines (6 in number) had to be modified …Learn more
DEVELOPMENT OF TEST BENCHES The two mandates entrusted were to realize a test bench for wheels and another for crawler traction systems. To perform the tests, forces are applied at specific locations, either by hydraulic pistons or by pneumatic balloons. Soucy can thus measure the wear and temperatures generated. Through a visualization screen, the operator …Learn more
