1009 - Product Distribution Packaging Line


Software Packages

  • Rsview32
  • VB 6.0
  • RSLogix 500

The purpose of this line is to package individual and multiple piece orders, (books, cd's, etc.) into a sealed box for shipping. The system also tracks the contents and applies a label to the outside of the box with a barcode printed on it identifying the contents.

A SLC 5/05 was used as a master that controlled communications between another SLC 5/05, one Micrologix 1200 and one Micrologix 1500 located in different pieces of equipment on the line. A centralized touch screen driven by Rsview32 provided all operators interfacing with the system.

The Intel PC running Rsview32 software handles all communication between the two-barcode scanners and the print engine.

Rsview was also used to handle all data logging, consisting of production and shutdown counts for each piece of equipment on the line.
