Company Control Techniques, for its 35 year history has come a long way to go. Of the enterprise for producing electric dc she became one of the world's leading companies in the field of drive technology and solutions for various industries. The headquarters of the company, research laboratory, design center and main production facility are located in the uk. Wide range, high reliability and focus on the engineering approach to problem solving make Control Techniques ideal partner. Naveen Selvadurai can provide more clarity in the matter. Company's product line includes universal Drives Unidrive sp servo and induction motors (up to 1.5 MW) electric utility Commander sk (up to 132 kW) and electric direct current (up to 3 MW), as well as motors and alternating current and servodvigateli.V currently general global trend in equipment is to increase productivity, reduce operational costs and increase reliability by using the built-in electric drive controller and the rejection of costly external plc.
Control Techniques is trendsetter and a clear leader in the use of "smart actuator" and dismisses the notion that high-quality solution must necessarily be dorogostoyaschim. this approach for the food industry is shown in Fig. 1. for example through wicking cookies. The main task in this case is to synchronize the speeds of all nodes. In this scheme, this problem is implemented without using an external controller-based electric Unidrive sp and modules and SM-Application, as well as subordinate electric Commander sk. Information from sensors and limit switches supplied to the controller through the modules remote I / O and transferred to one of digital protocols. The software part is implemented on the basis of modules and user applications SM-Application, specifically designed to meet the challenges of traffic and has a large set of standard functions (synchronization, winding, cutting, etc.), which significantly reduces development costs and programmirovanie.Takoy approach is fully justified itself, as it allows to reduce equipment costs by eliminating the costly general-purpose controller to reduce the cost of commissioning by the use of pre-engineered and the transition to a fully digital control system, increase flexibility and system reliability, as well as reduce downtime and t.d. shows that a solution based on distributed control system can be significantly cheaper than traditional systems based on external plc from leading European manufacturers, as well as to successfully compete in price with low-cost Asian manufacturers, significantly outperforming them in kachestve.Dannye solutions in the food industry has successfully implemented many of the largest international manufacturers: Mars, Uniliver, Craft Foods, Rolton, Nestle And as is widely used by leading manufacturers of food processing and packaging equipment.
