The choice of WindowsXP as the operating system allowed for the construction of a flexible system that is open to enhancement and can be adapted to suit particular customer requirements. Operation is easy and programming uncomplicated.
Use of a database means that both the number and length of programs are only limited by the size of the memory. Included as standard are wizards such as Coil, Ellipse and S-bends, which are able to generate an entire program from a mere handful of details. When creating a program directly, the system checks each entry to see whether a calculation is possible, indicating errors where appropriate. The graphical display is also constantly updated, allowing direct monitoring. Using the details entered, the program calculates the entire program sequence with the relevant adjustments, transitions, etc. Where variances arise during bending, the effective bend radius can be specified for the program, and a correction value is automatically calculated from this, the operation being adjusted as appropriate. To avoid scrapping workpieces, these can be rebent where needed. To help the operator, a wizard is included for this.
The mobile PC300 WindowsXP control system meets every requirement in terms of ease of operation, functionality and configuration levels. So efficiency is guaranteed! Remote diagnostics via Internet modem.
