West Control Solutions is offering Calgrafix process monitoring and configuration software free of charge with its entire range of Cal temperature and process controllers. The software enables users to set up and monitor the Cal controllers in individual machines or complex automation systems.

Cal controllers and Calgrafix software are used in a variety of applications and industries, including environmental test chambers, plastic injection and extrusion machines, ovens, autoclaves, furnaces, kilns, scientific research and complex food processing environments.

The software enhances the functionality of the Cal temperature controllers, with functions including data logging, process data archiving, a chart recorder, a virtual instrument display and on-screen alarms and displays.

Key features and benefits

  • The data-logging software reduces installation and configuration time for multiple controllers in complex environments.
  • Once the first controller has been configured, Calgrafix supports a drag-and-drop graphic profile creation for the Cal 9600P temperature controller and programmer to simplify setup and save time.
  • The software can store recipes for different production processes, which can be activated with the click of a mouse when the production environment is being switched to a new batch.
  • The software provides easy access to detailed process data via the charting and logging features.

West Control Solutions works with a global base of equipment manufacturers and end users. The products are ideally suited to challenging and tough environments such as industrial ovens, furnaces and kilns, plastics and extrusion. As the products offer excellent levels of precise control and accuracy together with being attractive instruments with strong aesthetic consideration during design they are often commonly used in laboratory, testing equipment and food and beverage applications.

The products are supported by a dedicated team of technical support specialists. The team has more than 25 years’ experience in temperature control instrumentation, specifically supporting products in industrial applications. This knowledge provides customers with complete peace of mind that they will be able to maximise the functionality available within the products even for the most complex of applications.

In addition to the core product offering there is also a customisation team that is available for those occasions where a custom controller will fit your requirements better than a standard product. In these cases, a comprehensive specification will be created, considering all requirements relating to the look and feel of the instrument, the format and functionality that is required. For the majority of customisation projects either a standard controller or a previous custom design can be used as the starting point for the bespoke design. This allows customers to benefit from reduced design and manufacturing costs, resulting in more customers to gain competitive advantage through unique designs and advanced functionality.
