Flashback Friday: RSView32 Water Bottling Demo

Welcome to The Automation Blog’s

“Flashback Friday!”

Today I’m highlighting my ten year old RSView32 Water Bottling Demo Project.

Shawns-RSView32-Horizon-Water-1x600Back in 2005 my colleagues and I wanted to run a custom hands-on seminar on using RSSQL (Transaction Manager,) BizWare Historian, and BizWare Plant Metrics.

The source of the data used in the labs had to be something simple that people from any plant could understand.

After much though, I decided that it would make the most sense to update my famous Juice Bottling Demo since I originally designed it to work with PlantMetrics.

So I added a bottle washer, a labeler, as two additional production modes, one which read orders from a CSV file, and one which used RSSQL bi-directional transfers.

That said, this demo is totally self contained and doesn’t requite anything other than RSView32 to run.

You can use the link below to see the original post from 2005, which also includes a link to the file:
