4ControllerView feature in MultiCon, part 1
Quick and easy access to process data is the basis of any measurement system. In the MultiCon line devices, which are the basis of many industrial applications, data is grouped in individual views in many different ways.
The novelty worth getting acquainted with is the 4ControllerView feature - a new mode of presenting the state of logic channels for a given measurement group, designed especially for the use of MultiCon as a controller.
Each MultiCon line device has eight independent PID control loops. The 4ControllerView function displays 4 channels in the numerical value mode (including: two "major" and two "auxiliary" ones), and two in the binary mode.
The first two lines are the typical PID control values which are PV and SV, each with its own percentage indication, description, and process unit. The SV value as a variable parameter can be set directly from the screen in the dynamic configuration mode.
Other parameters necessary for the proper functioning of the controller and available in the 4ControllerView mode are an issue to be presented in the next newsletter. We will focus on them in part 2.
Remember, 4ControllerView is:
- differentiation of individual values importance and their role in a controlled process,
- easier key data reading from a distance,
- clear presentation of data from many logical channels groups.
The 4ControllerView functionality is available with the 5.09.1 firmware, downloadable from www.multicon24.eu
We invite you to read the MultiCon overview available on the MultiCon website and to watch video-tutorial on our YouTube channel how to use the new 4ControllerView functionality in the MultiCon.
