VAC AERO’s latest advancement in vacuum furnace controls is a hybrid system based on the Honeywell HC900 controller to regulate mechanical and thermal functions integrated with the Honeywell Experion HS software to provide Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition (SCADA) using a large color touch screen LCD for operator interface. The operator interface is provided through a large, color touchscreen. Using this system, process information is accessible by operators at the furnace and by process engineers via the network. This provides comprehensive control and monitoring capabilities for higher productivity, reduced costs, and increased quality.
VAC AERO’s Furnace Control System is Versatile and Operator-Friendly
VAC AERO’s programmable, logic based control system is comprised of proven hardware components, suitably hardened for an “industrial shop” environment and optimized to cover all normal operating and alarm conditions. Process information is accessible by operators and across a company’s network for process engineers, allowing control and monitoring for higher productivity, reduced costs, and increased quality.
The new system has several features intended to improve security and reduce dependence on human operators. For example, it can be configured to send an e-mail message or call a pager in the event of an alarm condition. It has customizable operator sign on and sign-off functions with multiple levels of access security. It also has extensive reporting capabilities and can generate reports in flexible formats including mathematical and statistical functions.
VAC AERO control systems have been operating reliably through thousands of service hours. All control system innovations are fully tested and refined in our own heat treating facilities before being offered to our customers.
