The Maxxis 5 from Sartorius Intec combines accuracy, connectivity and functionality to provide a process controller unlike any other. Specifically designed to solve many of the problems faced by today’s manufacturers, the Maxxis 5 easily takes control of all modern automation processes. As a multiple use device, the Maxxis 5 is pre-programmed to control a diverse range of complex applications. Sartorius’ expert team of software engineers, in conjunction with industry specialists, have created software solutions that allow the unit to seamlessly integrate into any process. However, users who require it can utilise the easy to use IEC61131 programming language to implement their own unique functionalities.
– Process Controller for the automated control of weighing processes with up to four scales – Wide range of opportunities for flexible integration such as option cards, housings and EX approvals – DAT, multilingual easy-operation interface, backup function, service reports, simulation – BATCHING Application with manual and automatic recipe management – With an additional license: Internal alibi memory, OPC server, tilt correction – Supplied with Ethernet TCP|IP, Modbus TCP, RS232, RS485, USB, SD Card, 4 digital I|0
A complete range of potential applications
With a Maxxis 5 connected to 2 process vessel scales.
Within a recipe, up to 4 scales can be controlled simultaneously. The recipe stores all process steps and the Maxxis 5 can run the production without any other systems connected.
A printer can be used to printout the batching reports, or alternatively the reports can
be exported to a PC.
With a Maxxis 5 connected to 2 platform scales.
The Maxxis 5 guides the operator through the recipe. The display visualizes the status of the dosing, e.g. via bargraph. Users can utilize a barcode scanner to check if the right material has been used, and connect an additional report printer or label maker to the process controller.
With the recalculation function mistakes made by the user can be corrected immediately, eliminating product giveaway.
Batching with Fieldbus
With a Maxxis 5 connected to process vessels and a PLC.
The Maxxis 5 runs the recipe, however the control function of the digital I/O s is managed by a PLC, e.g. Siemens. Via Profibus-DP both systems maintain communication with one another. With this connection the PLC can integrate the process control within other processes.
