The user-friendly configuration software takes only seconds to install and provides the means to monitor numerous process variables in real-time, configure inputs/outputs and all associated features, save common recipes and broadcast them to one or many pre-assigned unit addresses.
The benefits to the user are a significant reduction in the units' setup time, online real-time analysis of the process which enables the unit to be fine tuned for improved control, and diagnostic monitoring of variables such as internal power, current and voltage.
To reduce the need for stocking multiple products with different input types, firing modes, heater break and current limit settings, it is possible to standardise on a smaller number of units and configure them at the time of need.
From opening the box to a fully configured unit only takes a few seconds, saving valuable commissioning time. Improved process control results in lower costs, either by reducing scrap or increasing product through put, being able to monitor the process online makes this possible.
Real-time process variables such as power, current and voltage are graphically displayed together with the ability to adjust the input power, firing rate, current limit and power scaling online. A soft-scope within the configurator enables the user to graphically log two user-selectable process variables on a trace with sampling rates from 100ms to 10s, and allows the user to save the results for later analysis. The software comes on CD with a dedicated serial communications cable and is suitable for use with the CD3000M, CD3000E, CD3200 & Multidrive thyristor units.
