Package-sealing temperature controller is configured 'in a minute'
17 May 2015
West Control Solutions has introduced a compact controller that can be set up in one minute for many packaging, food and beverage and textile industry applications.
MAXVU offers faster set-up than rival products because its start-up configuration menu only shows the most vital parameters including sensor types, units, outputs, alarms and setpoint values, removing time spent scrolling through unnecessary options.
The controller is suitable for packaging tray and bag sealers, textiles applications (such as seam sealing and thermal bonding) and processes in the food and beverage sector including fryers, micro-breweries and chocolate tempering.
Its ease-of-use is supported by a large display. A novel button design on the 1/16 DIN product, with the buttons at left and right of the digits on the keypad, allows an 18mm upper digit and 10.2mm lower digit height in a 48mm high device.
The larger digits offer increased clarity and visibility from distance to view process information and alarm messages that help monitor a system is running effectively. A 96x48mm unit is also available with 18mm digits upper and lower.
With a 67mm depth, the compactness of the device also aids installation. Users with compact machines will find that the improved access to the large rear terminals makes the MAXVU unit much easier to wire.
Additionally, MAXVU includes a side configuration port allowing users to connect to a graphic or the wizard-driven, user-friendly PC configuration software to further simplify set-up, and the configuration can be saved to program additional units if required.
