Control room (MIS level)
Large quantities of data have to be rapidly processed or visualized in the control room. The powerful Rack PC SIMATIC IPC547C reliably handles visualization of the production line, display and recording of plant faults, recipe management, as well as the documentation of quality data.
The SIMATIC IPC847C provides a high performance and, with up to 11 PCI/PCI-Express slots, high expandability for vision systems for fast inspection e.g. of bottles for faults, for positioning and printing of labels, or for level monitoring.
Plant monitoring and operation
Wet area: HMI station
The Panel PC SIMATIC HMI IPC677C with WinCC visualization software and stainless steel front is highly suitable for the wet area, e.g. for cleaning, filling, and for individual transportation of open bottles. Mounted on the boom, it is responsible for monitoring and operation of the machines, e.g. for visualization of faults or for maintenance work.
Dry area: HMI station
The Box PC SIMATIC IPC627C reliably handles plant monitoring in the dry area as well as control of crate filling and transportation. A remote flat panel monitor connected up to 30 meters away permits plant monitoring on site.
