Macau Refuse Incineration Plant Weighbridge Billing System
This project aims to replace the existing old weighing scale and incorporate Siemens PLC to collect vehicle’s trash data and transmit collected data along with vehicle’s license number, trash category to Honeywell SCADA system. Achieving this level of upgrade requires the migration of an old manual register method into a new methodology using RFID technology
The addition of a RFID technology enables a process without human operation, saving labour cost and eliminating the possibility of human error.
In addition, adopting a new PLC will save hardware replacement cost as old weighing machine parts has begun to phased out. Graphical control using computer can create different report to suit customer purposes, which older variants cannot.
