Less than 100km west of Milan, Italy’s fashion capital, is a city steeped in textile history. Biella is a small northern Italian city which can trace its role in wool and textile production back to the 11th century.
Developed by Kotek in Norway, this control project is a fish farm feeding system that has been implemented in many locations around the world from Norway and Scotland to South America, Canada, and China.
The primary goal of the project was to control and monitor the flow of water remotely. With the use of Horner products, DataMech’s aim was to build a water management system that remotely controlled all the local water pump stations, well pump stations, water tanks.
Centrifugue is a chemical separator and it's used to separate solids inside of a fluid taking advantage of the density differences and weight. Invertek is using all the benefits of XL series to make this kind of machine more flexible and powerful.
Automation of the Modbus system integrated with KEB inverters, this allows advanced temperature control over Modbus serial connection. KEB use a Horner OCS controller for their control system and SmartMod for temperature sensors.
Accurate temperature control is crucial for applications in the Textile industry. In the Dye Machine application described here, simple ON/OFF control isn't enough. There is a need for accurate temperature profiling. This is where the XLT with its fast response time and advanced math operations fits perfectly.
