Machine Counter System
This system has been designed to primarily replace the two counter systems used on Arvors, but we will happily modify it for any other requests you may have for different machines
The Counter system consists of a batch counter, resettable by the operator that can count batches up to 9999
It can count in two modes, these can be selected via the password protected menu.
The first mode is the simple "input = count" mode
The second mode was designed for machines that require non interrupt index operation, when the count signal is received it is stored by the system, and the counted when a cam signal is received, this enables precise batch output timing, this was either done via "Keely cards" or a machine PLC system.
Next we have the totaliser, this will operate at the same time the batch counter operates, and is resettable by the operator, it will count 9999999 operations
The final feature is a production hour counter, this is resettable via the password protected menu, it will count to 9999 hours 59 minutes 59 seconds and enables supervisory production time monitoring,
The system is made from a Delta 3" touchscreen (panel cutout 118.8 x 92.8 mm ), a Delta DVP 14SS2 PLC, and a serial comms cable.
Power supply requirements are 24 Vdc REGULATED,some machines have this supply, some don't, if you're unsure please ask us for assistance.
We can supply a range of low cost regulated power supplies
