Camfil APC's touchscreen controller monitors industrial dust collectors
A new touchscreen controller from Camfil Air Pollution Control (APC) provides full monitoring and control of all functions of an industrial dust collector and associated equipment. The controller comes with a touchscreen interface that allows ready access to all of its functions. It has been designed for use with Farr Gold Series dust collectors, or other types of collectors if integrated with a motor starter or variable frequency drive package.
A built-in differential pressure sensor monitors the primary filter pressure drop. Four analog inputs can be used to monitor the secondary filter as well as other devices, such as leak detectors, flow meters and compressed air pressure monitors. Six digital inputs are also included to monitor hopper level, smoke detection, remote cleaning and other functions.
Four relay outputs are provided to signal faults from any of the digital or analog inputs or from internal device faults. The 4-20 milliamp output will remotely monitor air flow or pass through any analog input to a remote location. The controller can also monitor fan power consumption, and can provide data logging of system performance with multi-language capability.
