SPX launches its EMMConnect Refrigerated Dryer Control panel
SPX has launched the EMMConnect Refrigerated Dryer Control panel for enhanced monitoring and controlof its principal range of non-cycling and energy-saving refrigerated air dryers. The unit features a user-friendly interface and provides advanced monitoring features including alarms, event and data log, master scheduler and maintenance reminders to provide control, while maximizing performance.
Among the features, the most significant innovation comes with the control unit’s connectivity options. The EMMConnect allows users to monitor the dryer’s operation from anywhere in the factory utilizing Ethernet or RS485 communication protocols. This connectivity allows operators to have a means to efficiently monitor the operation of critical process equipment and to be able to respond more quickly and efficiently to issues that may impact their critical process through networked communication with the dryer.
The backlit display continuously provides operating feedback providing information on date and time, hours to service as well as its total operating hours and vital parameters such as temperature and dryer per cent load. It provides protection for the dryers with alarms that allow operators to make adjustments and keep the dryer in operation. It also offers automatic reminders when it is time for scheduled maintenance, ensuring that the dryer runs efficiently for years to come.
When it comes to ensuring that the dryer is always running at peak performance its operation can be analyzed from the data log that continuously records its operating performance along with alarms and power events, which is stored together with times and dates. With its master scheduling function, users can create a custom operating schedule to match the operation of the facility, saving time and money.
