All Flexicon equipment, from basic conveyors to sophisticated plant-wide process systems, are offered with DIGITAL PROGRAMMABLE CONTROLS, including:
  • Programmable Logic Relays (PLRs)
  • Programmable Logic Controllers (PLCs)

PLR-based controls packages are generally employed on individual equipment to monitor and control basic to semi-sophisticated functions. The PLR eliminates the need for analog timers and mechanical relays, offering numerous benefits, and can be utilized as an economical substitute for a full PLC in less complex equipment systems. PLCs, which generally offer a greater number of input/outputs and more processing power, are typically employed to monitor and control more sophisticated equipment systems such as multiple ingredient weigh batching/blending systems, larger pneumatic conveying systems and integrated engineered systems including multiple equipment types.

The Controls Department customizes individual equipment as well as systems for maximum productivity according to each customer's bulk handling requirements by integrating full-scale fabrication capabilities with state-of-the-art control technologies:

  • Easy-to-operate interfaces, from push buttons to human-machine-interfaces (HMIs) with touch screens and graphic representations of equipment inputs and outputs, all customized by application
     
  • 100% Bench testing to ensure proper monitoring and control functions using actual inputs/outputs such as simulated scale systems, various types of sensors and electric motors
     
  • Advanced exchange of process data between equipment controls and the customer's plant-wide process control program such as downloading of weigh batch recipes and other operational parameters to plant floor equipment, and uploading of weight deviations, alarm signals and any type of feedback required for plant optimization
     
  • Components that are logically configured and labeled for easy-to-follow troubleshooting by plant personnel
     
  • NEMA 4 and NEMA 7/9 control panels
Plant personnel can download programs to start, stop, slow, speed-up, delay, advance or cycle equipment functions.
