Some Questions About The Plc Control In Microbrewery Equipment
Nowadays in breweries, more and more brewers want to have a PLC control. It can save some recipes and also set the saccharification temperature and time automatically. Here are some questions about PLC control for microbreweries.
1. Question. I know I’m asking for a Siemens touch screen and PLC, but I’d also like to know some other prices and options. Can you offer Alan Bradley or Schnider? -Can I get a price for an Alan Bradley touch screen and PLC? -Can I get a price for a Schnider touch screen and PLC? Sorry, but so far we can only use Siemens products. This is not a cost consideration, but we are already experienced in making programs with Siemens touch screens and PLCs. It is also used a lot in the beer brewing sector. Therefore, it would be very difficult for us to use another new brand. The program would be newly made. So I am sorry that so far we can only use Siemens.
Question. Can you send me the model number of the PLC, touch screen, etc. that you will be using and how many outputs and inputs these devices have? PLC is S7-1200. touch screen is KTP1200
Question. Is it also possible to choose to use a PLC and then use a computer screen and mouse to click on the motors to turn them on or off and change the speed instead of using a touch screen? This would work for me as well? It is easier to use the phone to check the screen contents and click the buttons.
Question. How upgradeable is the PLC and operating system? If I buy more tanks in a few years, can these be easily added in? It is best to add more controls for the expanded tanks at the beginning.
Question. How many outputs are there? -For the RTD module for temperature, it has 8 outputs, the AI module (for flow meters) has 8 outputs, and the DO module (for push buttons) has 32 outputs. A CPU allows a maximum of 8 outputs. An RTD/AI/DO module will be considered as one output of the CPU. For example, when you have two RTD modules, one AI module and one DO module. Then you will have 28+18+1*32=56 outputs. But they are different functions. Of course, you can have more modules, up to 8.
Question. If I want to change to have some automatic valves in the future, is this an option? -It is better to add them at the beginning, because each pneumatic valve needs solenoid valves and also needs to be connected to compressed air. Adding more modules and more pneumatic valve controls would be quite complicated.
Question. Can the operating system and graphics be changed in the future if I want? -It is possible.
Question: Do I get any software to change the operating system if needed? Do I get any software to change the OS if needed? -Yes, it is TaiV14. It is charged by the software vendor. 9.
Question: Do you provide support to fix minor bugs in the system? Do you provide support to fix and minor errors that may occur in the system? -Yes Thank you for reading.
