HED Isomax HMI

This system features UNIQUE/PERENY’s non-proprietary software specifically designed to integrate kiln control providing a high level of automation and ease of use. An industrial PC with touch screen serves as the primary operator interface to the kiln. The PLC (Programmable Logic Controller) uses discrete and analog I/O modules for control of the kiln independently of the PC. TCP/IP Ethernet communication serves as the network interface between the PC and PLC and provides simple integration into existing or future plant systems. The PC is also equipped with a modem for remote monitoring and trouble shooting of the kiln control system.

The HMI PLC/PC system components:

  • General Electric 90/30-Ethernet processor with I/O modules and base mount rack capable of expansion.
  • Industrial PC with touch screen.
  • Microsoft Windows 2000 professional operating environment.
  • General Electric Cimplicity HMI run time system.
