EC307 touch-screen control system for extruders and extrusion lines - Based on Sigmatek® Control Panel with integrated PLC
The heart of the control system is the ETV Control Panel (TFT colour touch display) with integrated PLC and real-time capable communication via an Ethernet-based VARAN bus.
The standard version controls up to 7 freely selectable extruders with 15 heating zones each along with a total of 24 heated tooling elements and downstream drives, melt temperatures and melt pressures. The temperatures are shown graphically and in tables and controlled by an integrated 3-point controller with heater current monitoring. All drives can be operated in synchronous operation or by a ramp function.
