Total Process Control – It’s You in the Driver Seat, Cruise Control On
InfoScan can oversee virtually any process that can be electronically measured and controlled. The process is continually monitored and controlled to achieve the desired setpoint, usually with the least amount of energy possible. The result is optimum system performance and reliability, 24/7.
Control schemes may be open or closed-loop. Pictured below, the output of a closed loop process directly affects input measurements. Controlling the water level in a tank by manipulating an inlet valve is an example of closed-loop control.
Control schemes are easily implemented using our Graphical Programming Language (GPL), Scripts, or a combination of both. Libraries can be created for standard control strategies, making it super easy to add new systems to your facility.
Control sequences can reside on the InfoScan server, or at the controller for a distributed processing solution. Controller-resident sequences also ensure the process control is not interrupted due to communication failure.
Features & Benefits:
- Component library simplifies programming
- Distributed processing model, with controlled shutdown in the event of critical input failure
