New at K 2004, the eDaq Control Center from Priamus provides real-time monitoring of up to 64 cavity pressure circuits, cavity temperature, and machine signals, and the signals can be transferred to a PC using an Ethernet connection. In addition, Priamus says digital output signals permit real-time control of valves, such as in gas-assist molding, liquid silicone molding, or cavity venting. The eDaq also provides switching signals to allow process-dependent control of sequential injection in applications such as auto bumpers and side panels, or other large parts.
The eDaq is machine-independent, which Priamus says makes it a cost-effective alternative to retrofitting individual machines, even for a relatively high number of circuits. Various monitoring functions can be combined with this system. A Master Plug automatically adjusts monitoring limits, and additional settings can be made via a password-protected Web interface. The control automatically detects all Priamus cavity pressure sensors on a mold and the cables and connectors are color-coded to simplify and safeguard connections. Priamus Molding Monitor software, which runs on a PC or laptop, is available as a unit with the eDaq unit.?RN
