Objective: To obtain several analog and digital inputs and outputs in tire curing process and to develop algorithm for the tire curing process and then interfacing PLC to HMI and SCADA to establishing communication between PLC and cloud so that the PLC is accessible from remote location. Methods: On the effective study of the plant, the PLCs are calibrated and programmed using Rockwell software package, a model of tire curing machine is simulated in Factory Talk View Studio platform and the corresponding behavior of curing machine to change in inputs are studied remotely. Further using Open Automation System software the data from PLC is stored and retrieved from cloud to ensure loss of data and remote operation of PLC. Findings: In the current system, the plant operations cannot be remotely monitored. Through the implementation of cloud technology Real time data can be monitored and recorded thus loss of data is greatly minimised. Troubleshooting becomes much easier for site engineers as they need not be present at the hazardous machine environment. Data can be moved from anywhere to everywhere. Open Automation System provides high end security of data. In current system the SCADA screen will be available only within the plant to monitor the on-going processes but in the proposed methodology the SCADA screen can be accessed by authentic users globally. Applications/improvements: The areas of data monitoring and recording systems are improvised by the implementation of cloud computing and IoT techniques, it is suitable for process industries with high risk factors in the work environments where the site engineers face difficulties in programming or troubleshooting PLCs.
