iQuest awarded Customer Excellence Award for Cobb County’s Noonday WRF WinCC project

iQuest was awarded the coveted Customer Excellence award for excellence in integrating Siemens WinCC HMI at Cobb County’s Noonday WRF Facility. Bob Meads, President and CEO of iQuest accepted the award from Richard Myers of Siemens at a special ceremony held at Charlotte’s NASCAR Hall Of Fame on the evening of June 9th. iQuest was nominated for the award by Mike Tiller of Siemens. The WinCC application was a direct conversion from a previous iFix application and was the latest step in Cobb County’s efforts to perform a technology upgrade of their automated systems. The automation system at Noonday already utilized Siemens S7 300 and 400 PLCs; upgrading their older iFix HMI to WinCC allowed them a more robust HMI platform, with greater capabilties for standardization, communication, reporting and scalability.  The SQL Server 2005 interface allowed iQuest to quickly import existing tags and alarms from the old system, and to make global changes to naming conventions for tags to facilitate standard faceplates and control screens. VBA was used to automate the generation and configuration of common GUI components, such as gates and valves. The total conversion time for the project was completed on schedule, with minimal issues.
