Safe SubSystem Process Controller – S3PC
- Modular and configurable controller
- Supplied with a user-friendly Graphical User Interface with pre-configured programs (VNC)
- Can control :
– Up to 5 Cells or Sources
– Up to 16 Temperature PID loops
– Up to 24 Shutters
– Up to 3 Drivers motor regulation valve
– Many other equipment with dedicated extension modules
The S3PC is a modular PLC (Programmable Logic Controller) integrating the most advanced state of the hardware technology. The S3PC can control multiple cells or sources including their power supplies, shutters, temperature regulation and motorized process valve.
The standard S3PC Kit hardware configuration includes :
- A communication module RS422/485 for communication to power supplies
- 2 x PID channels for temperature regulation
- 6 x Digital Output 0-24V/0.5A for pneumatic shutter or valve control
- 6 x Digital Input 0-24V for interface with other PLC.
Based on customer projects, cards can be added to increase the number of sources to control, and allow the control of DC motor for valved sources, heaters, quartz monitor, flux gauge, etc.
The S3PC is designed to control up to 5 sources and a maximum of 6 heating zones per source.
It has a dedicated Graphical User Interface (GUI) that is available from a Virtual Network Computing (VNC) or from a dedicated touchscreen (optional) for a complete stand-alone solution.
The S3PC can be controlled remotely by a master process controller via the Modbus TCP IP protocol.
