IVAC Group Vacuum Furnace Control System Overview

 IVAC Group Vacuum Furnace Control System is built using an Eurotherm/Indusoft hardware/software architecture.

The main Hardware/Software components are:

HMI – INDUSOFT SCADA system is installed on a Windows 10 Pro 64 bit virtual PC:

  • Act as an Interface between operator and control system;
  • easy to use touch screen interface for local and remote operation
  • Monitor real time furnace status;
  • Record and display of all process variables and alarms;
  • Permit manual control of the furnace;
  • Client-server functionality offers remote monitoring and control the process.
  • Multiuser level password protected login access;
  • Recipe management;
  • Permit remote access over Internet connection.

PLC – Eurotherm E+PLC400 that will control the furnace functionality:

E+PLC400/HC900 are modular PLCs designed to meet the stringent regulatory requirements of thermal and other advanced manufacturing industries.

Includes advanced function block libraries for:

  • Heat treatment applications
  • Batch data management
  • Setpoint programming
  • Vacuum control
  • Control and data recording
  • ‘OEM security’ and customization

Unique PID control functions are built in, enabling faster commissioning and tighter control of the overall process, as well as easing conformance to regulatory and end-customer requirements, including:

  • PID to help maintain tight control at specific setpoints
  • Intelligent auto-tune for optimal control and commissioning
  • Specialized cutback function for overshoot control

Provides multi-setpoint control via a setpoint program and sequencing of the vacuum pumping system, with temperature cycles. Plus, it provides leak-rate detection and pumping-time systems to aid the optimization of cycle-times. This IIoT ready system also allows enhancement with predictive maintenance functionality.

Data management to helps manufacturers meet strict regulatory process data requirements

Ethernet communication.
