NETZSCH Iris

Modern and intuitive control concept with multitouch display
 

Based on a 12" color graphic display with multi-touch function, NETZSCH Iris facilitates monitoring and control of the process sequence.

In addition to intuitive adjustment of the machine operating parameters, other functions such as batch logging and formulation management, energy consumption estimation, machine availability display, preventive and operational maintenance control as well as historical data combined with real production time and trend graphics are available.

An integrated error management system provides instructions and help for problem solving.

History function

  • Log list of all past alarms and warnings
  • Ranking of alarms within a defined period of time
  • Display of the historical process parameters as a process line diagram
  • Presentation of the process values on a dashboard, when the machine comes to a stopp due to an error
  • Chronological list of the last 30 batches and detailed display of the production parameters
  • Availability display for machine utilization including maintenance times

Maintance function

  • Display of preset or customer-specific maintenance intervals, which regularly informs the user about relevant and important maintenance dates
  • Detailed display of the maintenance message for the affected machine components as well as progress bars since the last maintenance
  • PLC status indicator for firmware, communication status, etc.

Formulation Management

  • Formulation management for the input of up to 99 formulations, each with individual machine parameters depending on the product-dependent production process:
  • Input of preset values (mill/pump speed, pressure and temperature limits, capacity limits)
  • The machine is automatically ramped up to these process values at startup
