A human-machine interface (HMI) and an operator workstation (OWS) provide different levels of user access for NDC Infrared Engineering’s Ethernet-enabled Series 710e NIR gauge.

NDC’s Series 710e gauge is used for critical process parameters such as moisture, fat, protein, sugars, temperature, coatweight and coating thickness.

The HMI provides supervisory access to up to 16 networked Series 710e gauges, while the OWS connects to an individual gauge.

NDC has developed the two interfaces to ensure that users get the most from their investment for online measurement and process control.

Both multi-lingual interfaces feature 1/4 VGA high-resolution colour touch screens to provide access to a range of measurement information, diagnostics and other functions, appropriate for the level of access required.

All variants are available in high-impact polymer housings, rated to IP65, and are suitable for use in ambient temperatures to 50C.

Optional stainless housings meet the need for safety and hygiene in food processing and other environments.

The OWS displays single- or multi-component gauge measurement values and enables operators to access key process functions such as diagnostics, auto-reference checking and a short-term graphic trend function to establish suitability of process conditions for sample collection.

The HMI enables manipulation of product settings such as calibration values, alarm settings and all functions featured on the operator workstation.

It also provides scalable analogue outputs and digital input/output (I/O), as well as Fieldbus connectivity options, including all common Ethernet-based protocols and Devicenet, Profibus and Canbus Open.

NDC has designed the Series 710e to be connected to virtually any common control protocol.

In addition to permanent network connections, both the HMI and OWS feature an RJ45 Ethernet cable socket to allow connection of a computer running NDC’s GaugetoolXL gauging management software, so that GaugetoolsXL features such as data logging, sampling, calibration and long-term trending can be used.

Other Series 710e devices include the switched eight-way hub for convenient multi-gauge networking and the user port, which provides additional fully configurable analogue, digital or Fieldbus connectivity, wherever it is needed.
