Schenck Process GmbH (Germany) - New controller generation with award-winning user interface.
CONiQ® Control is a highly flexible control and automation system with many options for use in industrial measuring, weighing and automation technology. Herewith Schenck Process standardizes the use of a common controller platform for a wide variety of processes for the first time. The hardware and software components are optimized with regard to the user interface, connectivity (IIOT), configurability and calibration capability.
The range of applications extends from a wide variety of measuring and weighing technologies to logistical automation solutions and applications in the field of continuous processes that will soon be available – concentrating especially on bulk material handling.
The first available application can be used for is precise, legal-for-trade weighing and automation solutions in the field of static weighing and identification of freight, trucks and cranes.
The new controller’s main advantage is the user-guiding, web-based interface, which won the reddot award 2019 for its intuitive interface design.
Launching CONiQ® Control, Schenck Process now offers:
- Award-winning user interface: The touch control interface intuitively guides the user through their task, simplifies and accelerates operations and allows short training times.
- Remote access: Access to the control unit is available using Ethernet or WiFi connections. The web-based user interface also enables operation via mobile devices. Additionally, remote access without app or software installation improves maintenance services, resulting in faster response times and a reduced downtime.
- Customized modularity: In line with increasing standardization requirements of end- and OEM-customers, both hardware and software are modular and can be combined to suit relevant applications. CONiQ® Control has a fieldbus interface for easy system integration and is available with different housing variants. This allows the controller to be adapted precisely to various applications and environments. The functions of the controller are determined by the software, expansion modules used and parameterization.
As a global market leader in industrial weighing and feeding applications, Schenck Process focuses on digitizing existing products and developing new smart ones while combining technology and application processes in a smart and connected way.
