The touch-screen equipped control system is based on a state of-the-art controller (Siemens or Allen Bradley) and has an OPC-UA interface for connection to higherlevel IT architectures. This interface makes the system fully Industry 4.0 compliant. The modular software is structured according to the system configuration and can be operated intuitively.
The control system works with stored formulation parameter sets, which makes it possible to switch between formulations with the push of a button. All essential system parameters such as fill levels, flow rates or quantities, pressures, temperatures, and outputs are visualized, recorded, and archived. Defined process parameters such as temperatures, power consumption or specific energy input, and thus the efficiency of the system, are continuously monitored by the control system. Optionally, the system can also be maintained via remote diagnosis and remote maintenance.
