The purpose of this system
is to monitor and record data from a solution treat oven to improve
quality control. There are six different zone temperatures as
well as belt speed being monitored during batch processing.
A Micrologix 1500 is used for data control and calculations.
An HMI station with RSView32 is used for product information input
as well as displaying real-time and historic trend data related
to each batch. The trend screens provide the ability to view data
in a line graph format over specific time increments. Historic
data can also be viewed in a spreadsheet format. Batch data such
as average zone, minimum, and maximum temperatures are recorded
to a SQLServer2000 database.
