- “The world’s largest machine” uses automation software from Palatinate
- versiondog secures and monitors industrial control of the Large Hadron Collider
- User case study as webcast on November 25, 2020 from 3 - 3.45 pm
Landau, Palatinate, 23 November 2020. “With versiondog we have made significant gains in safety and quality in terms of the data availability of our applications with many of CERN’s programmable logic controllers”, says CERN engineer Jerónimo Ortolá Vidal. CERN, the European Organization for Nuclear Research, trusts AUVESY’s leading data and change management solution for industrial automation to secure and monitor industrial controls of the world’s most powerful particle accelerator, the Large Hadron Collider. With versiondog the research Organization monitors more than 500 automation components of the particle accelerator.
In a user case study representatives from AUVESY and CERN inform jointly about the successful implementation as well as data protection possibilities of versiondog. The webcast will take place on November 25, 2020 from 3 - 3.45 pm (CET). Registration is possible via the AUVESY website.
“We are pleased to be providing the potential of versiondog with the example of the world’s most powerful particle accelerator. With our software we enable top research to achieve comprehensive data and quality assurance in automation”, says Dr. Ing. Tim Weckerle, CEO of AUVESY.
“With versiondog we have made significant gains in safety and quality in terms of the data availability of our applications with many of CERN’s programmable logic controllers, ” explains Jerónimo Ortolá Vidal.
In 2008, the Large Hadron Collider was put into operation at CERN to advance cutting-edge research in the field of particle physics and to study the structure of matter. It is supported by 23 member states that have joined together in the Conseil Européen pour la Recherche Nucléaire. Over 12,000 scientists worldwide are currently working on various projects. The overview of all changes to the control systems is fundamental to CERN’s work.
