Control and software
We use modern PLC (programmable controller systems) from well-known manufacturer with high quality electronic scales as a part of PLC system. The major benefit for this is with option for “Remote Diagnostic/ Ethernet-connection” (alternatively TeleService TS II adapter) that then the complete system can be remote diagnosed including scales and servo parameters.
Erkopack filling stations are operated by using HMI operation panel. Data corresponding to each product to be packed is stored and saved to product recipes. When product is changed, a new recipe is selected from operation panel and machine automatically changes new dosing parameters.
Our PiE program (Packaging information Explorer) collects and saves data from bagging station. Data is stored to database and can be viewed later or online.
