The Autoclave Management and Control System (AMCS) has been designed to offer precise digital control of the autoclave and oven processes used in the processing of composite components.

Developed in conjunction with Honeywell, the system provides a hardware platform with fully integrated logic, control and data-acquisition components.

Its SCADA-based software ensures that the system is easy to use and incorporates new features, as well as fully digital data management for compliance with NADCAP standards.

AMCS particularly targets operators of autoclaves controlled by FGH Controls instruments – production of which has been discontinued.

As spares for this control system become harder to obtain, AMCS is said to offer a route to improved performance but with a gentle learning curve.

To simplify the upgrade process further, existing libraries of programs in FGH’s Autoclave Manager software are fully compatible with AMCS and can be simply uploaded without modification.

AMCS’s advanced software is said to be able to cut energy costs significantly – for example by slowing the control fan when full power is not required.

Primarily aimed at the aerospace and motor sport industries, the system offers multi-zone control of the highly critical processes that make up the cure cycle, offering cure profiles of up to 20 segments each.

Full event logging of user and process actions is provided.

Current status can be monitored from networked PCs and the controller can email events and alarms, as well as issuing SMS alerts.
