OEM Controllers

Overview

OEM Controllers

MC12 Master controller capable of controlling up to 16 peristaltic fillers. Utilizing functional and user-friendly software, with a choice of four languages, the MC12 communicates through an easy-to-read LCD-display. The system can be connected to a printer for logging of production data.

The MC100 controller enables machine manufacturers to control Flexicon fillers directly from their own PLC/HMI. MC100 is a pump control module capable of controlling up to 16 Watson-Marlow Flexicon Pumps. As MC100 is designed with the purpose of incorporating a Watson-Marlow Flexicon filling system into a filling Line, MC100 has no operator interface. Therefore, an operator cannot start or stop the connected pumps, nor set the recipes or display actual parameters on a MC100.

The MC12P is the heart of Flexicon's multi filling system and can simultaneously control up to sixteen individual Flexicon filling units. Utilizing functional and user-friendly software, with a choice of four languages, the MC12 communicates through an easy-to-read LCD-display. The system can be connected to a printer for logging of production data. With no difficult corners or angles, the MC12 is remarkably easy to clean. The MC12P is recognized as very reliable and value adding solution by filling machine manufacturers worldwide.

Features and benefits

  • Communicates with PLC/HMI via industrial field bus (for example Profibus)
  • Allows adjustment of filling parameters or programs via an existing PLC / HMI
  • Allows data collection from all processes/functions on the entire filling line
  • Filling weight signals for automatic recalibration of individual fillers can be received via existing PLC
  • Controls up to sixteen filling units (all versions of PD12 and PD22)
  • Filling in parallel, serial or individual mode is standard
  • Programmed according to GAMP
