A medical device manufacturer wanted to upgrade a legacy water circulation system for an MRI machine that they build and sell. The water in this system is heated and cooled in order to keep the patient comfortable during a MRI procedure. After reviewing the system, Valin’s automation engineers discovered they could eliminate the use of over 10 relays and 2 of the 4 power supplies.
