New projects include Tropical Bioenergia S.A., which has approximately 1000 PROFIBUS nodes connected to SMAR DFI302 DF73 controllers with SYSTEM302-7, a hybrid control system with decentralized architecture, which enabled this facility to quickly double production.In September 2007, Santa Elisa Distillery and SMAR signed a contract for the complete automation of 4 new plants This distillery is owned by the Santelisa-Vale Group, one of the major sugar-ethanol producers. The deal involves the supply of SYSTEM302-7 plus all instrumentation using PROFIBUS.
