Allen Bradley based controls. Low speeds usually under 300 packages per minute will use the Compact Logix controller. High speeds usually over 300 packages per minute will use the control Logix PLC. There may be conditions at low speeds were control Logix may be used, that will be determined by engineering and the customer requirement. The controls use ethernet to communicate between the components. A touchscreen for Humane Machine Interface is also connected to the ethernet switch. The HMI will allow personnel to troubleshoot and adjust the machine. The controller will have a modern software package installed. The software can be adjusted on site to accommodate the needs and requirements of the customer.
