Simultaneous measurement and recording of different process signals
The versatility of the MultiCon controller/recorder is particularly manifested in the fact that one device can collect many different signals, up to 48 channels for the CMC-99 and 72 channels for the CMC-141 . Three slots for I/O modules means the user is not limited to monitoring only three types of signals. Our offer includes universal and versatile modules that combine, for example, analog and digital inputs on a single expansion card, which is particularly well proven in the food industry.
The following model is an example of the combination of cards being used and works well in the typical food processing application: CMC-141-PS42/ACM/RT6/UI8D8/FT2-081
The RT6 module consists of 6 RTD inputs used for temperature measurement in tanks with ingredients.
The UI8D8 module consists of 8 current inputs of type 0/4..20 mA, 8 voltage inputs of type 0/1..5 V, 0/2..10 V and 8 digital inputs.
The FT2 module consists of 2 digital inputs dedicated to flow meters and 2 current inputs of type 0/4..20 mA for general applications.
The ACM module is equipped with RS-485, RS-485/232, USB and Ethernet ports, providing many alternatives to real-time communication with the device and the possibility of downloading recorded data and monitoring processes in real time on any PC connected to the same network.
The device is used to monitor temperature, pressure and level in 6 process tanks as well as flow across 2 nozzles that fill containers with the final product. MultiCon also monitors production efficiency in real time. Therefore, comprehensive process measurement is provided, taking into account all the quantities that the user finds important. If the system requires expansion, the device still provides a few free measuring inputs for future use.
The device is designed for operation within an extended temperature range (-20°C to +50°C).
