Controls Lower Levels

Controls for all aspects of baggage handling systems are provided through our in house specialists.

Control systems are usually based on Programmable Logic Controllers (PLC), we have experience in using the worlds leading manufacturers of PLCs and are therefore likely to be able to complement our clients chosen automation approach.

This experience extends to various standards of networking to allow large mutli-controller schemes to be built as well as small standalone schemes.

Over many years of providing baggage handling systems we have extensive refined libraries of software, covering almost all aspects of baggage handling control, including innovative leading edge control techniques. This allows us to implement control schemes cost effectively with low risk.

Emulation, the use of computers to simulate the baggage handling system to allow the actual PLC code to be tested, is used to allow thorough testing of software before going to site. This significantly reduces the time required on site to commission a system, as well as reducing the risk of undetected software issues, the result being a shorter, smoother transition into operation and minimised disruption to operations during these stages of the project. Emulation, also allows customers to witness tests before moving to site, with the very visual nature of Emulation often customers are able to perfect their own vision of their operation and any changes made efficiently again before moving to site.

It is also now commonplace to provide computers for operational and maintenance diagnostics purposes to allow the system to be operated efficiently. Many of our previous projects have incorporated such systems as part of our control system.

In anticipation of its Baggage Handling System upgrade, works on which have already commenced, Malta International Airport is conducting a series of exercises to ensure a seamless transition period, while also testing its preparedness in the event of baggage processing malfunctions.

While there is only a slim possibility of complete baggage processing malfunctions, MIA is conducting preparedness exercises, aimed at testing the robustness of the company's business continuity plan. These ensure that the airport team, stakeholders operating at the terminal and back-up infrastructures are fully equipped to handle such a situation in a way that causes minimal inconvenience to passengers.

The investment in a new state-of-the-art Baggage Handling System, supplied by industry leaders Daifuku Logan, will also be laying the groundwork for full compliance with the European Civil Aviation Conference's provision stipulating that by 2020 every European airport must possess a hold baggage screening capability that combines x-ray and computed topography technology.

The new Baggage Handling System will pave the way for the forthcoming installation of eight new check-in desks which will increase the airport's throughput and efficiency. This infrastructure project will also allow MIA to continue adding capacity in future expansion plans.

The BHS upgrade forms part of MIA's Terminal Reconfiguration project through which the company has invested €12m in infrastructural improvements with the aim of further enhancing its guests' airport experience.
