Our Line Control Autocure 4.1 ensures optimum capacity and high dilectric strength with minimum production cost.
Our Line Control Autocure 4.1 consists of a Line Control Unit (LCU) with a fail safe PLC, an industrial field bus for controlling distributed I/O and drives, a user friendly movable control panel with a Siemens touch screen, a NOMOS Process Supervision Unit (PSU), an Uninterruptible Power Supply (UPS) for PSU (5 – 10 minutes), and a remote PSU unit.
The LCU hardware is based on the Siemens PLC. The software contains all logical sequences and calculations for performing. The process sequence control function is an important benefit, which ensures high cable quality during ramps maximizing the amount of quality cable from start to finish of the process and reducing the need for operator supervision. To initiate process sequences, the operator only has to click the corresponding button, the alternatives being START (slow speed), PROD (production speed), SLOW (e.g. for reel change), and END (automatic after curing and cooling). Synchronization of all machines is based on an actual process sequence phase. The line control also takes care of the extruder and tube heating temperature, as well as the logics and interlocking of machines, valves, pumps, and the system diagnostic of hardware modules and bus nodes.
The PSU consists of an industrial PC connected to a PLC and software developed for cable production supervision. The PSU's highly interactive interface ensures quick settings, high quality repeatable production, complete alarm control, controlled maintenance and historical reporting for production management. The PSU and its two flat displays is placed in a separate control room. One display is for normal operation while the other displays the process status.
The has PSU modular functionalities, such as process monitoring, an alarm system, production history, a recipe system, time based data logging, and areporting system. The PSU Remote Control Unit can be placed in a comfortable location on the line. It includes a touch PC and it functions in parallel with the PSU computer.
The remote service connection is made in a secure way via internet or GPRS/EDGE connection. It gives the possibility to make remote service, diagnostic, software update and troubleshooting functions for the line automation system, almost in a similar way as with a local connection. The remote service includes the required hardware and the functionality tests of the connection. If the GPRS/EDGE connection is used, the customer must provide the required SIM-card. The price of the remote service is negotiated case by case.
Maillefer has recently acquired a Cable Checker unit for our new R&D lab. The unit is essentially a microscope connected to a hot oil bath for high resolution analysis of all parts of the cable. This equipment is particularly suited for inspection of extruded XLPE (cross-linkable polyethylene) insulated Medium, High and/or Extra-High Voltage cable samples. Both trouble shooting and quality control inspection are done with very high accuracy. Read more
