The new control eliminates the need for a laptop PC to change standard program timers or monitor the PLC I/O for troubleshooting, while free PLC programming software from Lantech allows full access to the control's code for in-depth changes. "This control gives the customer digitally precise control of wrap patterns, overlap and overwrap from the touchscreen," says William Caudill, Lantech Product Manager for Automatic Systems. "And in an automated environment, the control can also switch between wrap patterns as it receives information from upstream equipment. The control's fault tracking capability lets the user see operational trends as they develop, and 'help' screens keyed to displays facilitate training and troubleshooting. Most system changes can be executed without a laptop PC, but when in-depth edits are needed, our free PLC programming software saves the user thousands of dollars."
