PressControl 5000

Control Unit SCHMIDT® PressControl 5000

SCHMIDT® PressControl 5000 is a control unit for the operation of compact, standardized single workstations as well as complex, highly flexible assembly automation systems. The realization and the extension of assembly lines is considerably simplified using SCHMIDT® PressControl 5000 in connection with SCHMIDT® ServoPress modules. All configuration and operation parameters are managed and documented via the control unit SCHMIDT® PressControl 5000.

Features SCHMIDT® PressControl 5000 RT

  • Modular and can be networked
  • Can be space-saving integrated in the switching cabinet
  • Processing of all process data in real time
  • Reliable production without further periphery equipment
  • Open communication with the periphery:
    - CANopen
    - Profibus DP
    - DeviceNet (optional via external gateway)
    - Ethernet, optional WLAN
  • Communication with other systems:
    - Master SPS
    - ERP
    - CAQ / statistic system
  • Activation up to 6 ServoPress modules or NC axes via CANopen
  • Multi-functional process control PLC for an individual design of process. The cycle time is 1 ms independently of the length of the program code. The PLC is in permanent dialog with the measurement data acquisition and the CNC in real time.
  • Integration of more than 2000 I/O’s
  • Integrated measurement data acquisition and process monitoring
  • Connection to database server via Ethernet possible
  • Permanent use of the operating panel SCHMIDT® PressControl 5000 HMI or temporary use of commercial PC’s (e.g. laptop) for parametrization, programming, service, diagnosis with initiation and error search, as well as process analyses and -optimizations (momentary recordings of the ongoing production)

Features SCHMIDT® PressControl 5000 HMI

  • High-resolution process visualization via 19" TFT display for the depiction of several processes
  • Individual design of the user interface, e.g. in connection with other system components
  • Direct access to process image
  • User-friendly, intuitive menu guidance via touchscreen
  • Operating modes:
    - Set-up mode via integrated, high-resolution hand-wheel function (mechanical)
    - Cycle mode via function key
  • Integrated hand wheel (for set-up mode):
    Can switch to any CNC axis with selectable resolution­ to simplify set-up of an operation. The press ram can approach a desired target based on distance or force increments via hand wheel.
  • Number pad via integrated membrane keypad for the input of numerical values and choice of functions
  • Function keys/softkeys:
    Presets a freely programmable membrane keys to simplify handling.
  • Track ball, substitutes an integrated mouse, robust element adapted to any work environment
  • Industry-compatible, even in harsh environments
  • Protection class IP 54
