Rockwell Automation Tradeshow Exhibit
XLReporter is integrated into Rockwell Automation's Water and Wastewater exhibit to demonstrate its reporting capabilities when applied to these industries.
XLReporter is part of the PlantPAx exhibit which is a plant wide control system that utilizes a common
automation platform to seamlessly integrate both process and discrete control as well as plant wide information.
The exhibit demonstrates the capability of PlantPAx applied to various industries such as Water and Wastewater treatment.
XLReporter reporting and manual data entry applications are accessible from a menu added to the PlantPAx displays.
XLReporter reporting software for Water treatment facilities produce regulatory, compliance, operational, and management reports.
Commonly used reports are in easy reach with “out-of-box” templates. State forms are imported right into the Design Studio which is packed with familiar workbook features such as charts, formats, and formulas.
Scalability makes it suitable for all facilities, from a small facility automating their reporting process to save time to a large municipality delivering information using the web portal.
Easy access to data from RSLinx®, FactoryTalk® Linx Gateway, FactoryTalk® AE, FactoryTalk® View SE Data Logs (ODBC), and standards such as OPC and OLE-DB. In addition, the FactoryTalk® View SE Data Agent provides a high performance interface to live data, file sets (DAT), and FactoryTalk® Historian.
In Wastewater, a substantial amount of reporting data is entered manually by operators. XLReporter’s manual data entry feature is used to replace pen and paper with electronic forms. Operator rounds, laboratory results, process readings and operator comments are a few examples of forms better utilized in a database than a filing cabinet.
Reports and dashboards for wastewater treatment are usually based on manual data, process data, and calculations and when reports are generated they are performed automatically or on-demand. XLReporter satisfies all these requirements.
This is a monthly report required for each well/chemical combination. The chemicals used are added to combat bacteria, promote healthy teeth and reduce the erosion of pipework.
Some columns in the report are derived from cell formulas. For example, the Dosage is determined using the treated water totals and the density of chemicals added.
Fluoride has been proven to protect teeth from decay. Bacteria in the mouth produces acid when a person eats sugary foods.
This acid eats away minerals from the tooth’s surface, making the tooth weaker and increasing the chance of developing cavities.
The monthly Fluoridation report ensures that the facility has added the recommended quantity of fluoride to the treated water.
