Tamandua Project Design services include mechanical design, dynamics analysis, brake system design, instrumentation, and control system design. The control system design included the logic development, programming (Modicon Quantum), on-site commissioning, and performance testing. The control system included a supervisory system (FactoryLink) provided by others.
