Sentinel Series Controller

PLC based for control & monitoring of all process conditions

 
   

The Sentinel Series Controller is an integrated package utilizing a powerful Programmable Logic Controller (PLC) for all process control, monitoring, and coordination in conjunction with a touch-screen operator display unit. The Sentinel provides the operator with a concise point of control for all processes related to a reactor system. In its standard configuration the unit controls and monitors the reactor internal and external temperature, the speed of the mixer, and the reactor pressure.

BENEFITS

The Sentinel Series Controller is an integrated package utilizing powerful Programmable Logic Controller (PLC) for all process control, monitoring, and coordination in conjunction with a touch-screen operator display unit. The Sentinel provides the operator with a concise point of control for all processes related to a reactor system. In its standard configuration the unit controls and monitors the reactor’s temperature, the vessel external temperature, the speed of the mixture, and the pressure within the reactor.

The Sentinel series can also be grouped together and operated via a single workstation computer. The workstation computer is configured to give the operator complete access to each connected Sentinel Controller including all operational capability, recipe functions, data acquisition, and configuration. The workstation will store all of the data acquired from each of the Sentinel Controllers.
