Single feeder operator interface

February 28, 2007

Designed as a single feeder operator interface for the Schenck AccuRate DISOCONT® control, the new OP1 provides users with operation, calibration, trending, and basic diagnostics in one easy to use system. Start-up is simplified by utilizing the integrated OP1 tutorial that walks the operator through each step. A graphical color touch screen display contains the latest in HMI technology and multi-level password protection allows a supervisor to select and protect read or write parameters for operator access only. The OP1 has the option to be packaged in a panel mount unit with the DISOCONT® control or configured independently in a NEMA 4 type enclosure, which allows for a remote mount interface. Other features of the new operator interface include four Mbytes of flash memory, four global function keys, and a lighted LCD display.
