The SCHMIDT® PressControl 700 for single workstations is used for the control and monitoring of pressing and joining processes. In addition to precise assembly tasks, the fast acquisition of extensive process data and bidirectional data exchange is becoming more and more important.
The SCHMIDT® PressControl 700 real-time controller communicates with the process components via the high-performance and fast field bus EtherCAT with a transmission rate of 100 Mbit/s and a transmission speed of 0.5 ms. With this, the press control meets the requirements for fast processing of large data volumes. The leap into other fieldbus worlds is realized by using optional fieldbus gateways.
Process visualization takes place directly on the PressControl 700. Via the Ethernet interface, the control communicates with MES systems and external PCs as well as PRC DataBase and PRC FileXchange software.
The press control system is optimally designed for SCHMIDT® press systems. Thanks to the integrated PLC and process visualization, the best possible compatibility and performance is achieved. All components are tested and matched to each other in the network and are therefore ready for immediate use.
