NEW COMO VIEW ALLOWS REMOTE MONITORING
OF PRODUCTION PROCESSES.
The new CoMo View from Kistler Instruments, a development
of the widely used CoMo Net production process monitoring
system, has a built-in 5.7" colour touchscreen that displays
process parameters in real time and provides operator
access to the menu of pre-set process definitions.
The new unit can accept a wide range of inputs from piezoelectric
and strain gauge sensors, voltage output sensors and potentiometric
angle and displacement sensors allowing any combination of
acceleration, force and pressure to be monitored as a function
of angle, displacement or time. Twelve freely combinable process
evaluation functions, including boxes, real-time thresholds, gradient
and integral, can be used to monitor block force, limit position and
threading or the entire curve. Real-time digital I/O's and high speed
process and curve data exportation ensures that process monitoring
remains reliable even at high sampling rates.
The built-in Ethernet provides easy connection to a corporate network
making remote set-up of monitoring parameters and data display
available on any PC or terminal on the local area network (LAN).
The use of an existing network simplifies low cost, centralised storage
of process data, especially in large, complex production facilities.
Equipped with web server capability, CoMo View provides a password
protected TCP/IP link to web browsers anywhere in the world enabling
anyone with appropriate access authorisation can view and manipulate
all of the functions and data in real-time. Remote maintenance and
diagnostics using the TCP/IP link makes servicing very economical
and cost of ownership exceptionally low.
The new Kistler CoMo View is suitable for quality assurance
applications in a wide variety of production processes.
Kistler Instruments is one of the worlds leading manufacturers
of piezoelectric and piezoresistive precision sensors covering
acceleration, force, pressure and torque. Established in
Wintherthur (Switzerland) in 1957, Kistler is represented in over
50 countries and has subsidiaries in Germany, France, Italy, UK,
Japan, USA, China, Korea and Singapore.
Heavy investment in research and development, 15% of staff
worldwide are engaged in research and development, has
generated a number of innovations using piezoelectric,
piezoresistive and capacitive techniques to provide solutions
to numerous force, pressure and acceleration measuring problems.
These innovations include the world's first commercial quartz sensor,
two-wire constant current technology to integrate sensors with
microelectronic circuitry, high-temperature pressure sensors for
use up to 400 deg C and three-component force measuring sensors.
