Mul­ti­func­tion con­trol­ler – one for all!

Pro­gramma­ble logic con­trol­lers are, in a sense, the brains of the modern fac­tory. But not all tasks require a full-fled­ged PLC. With the mul­ti­func­tion con­trol­ler, HESCH has the­r­e­fore deve­lo­ped a modern con­trol­ler plat­form for indus­trial pro­ces­ses that clo­ses the gap bet­ween a stan­dard con­trol­ler and the PLC.


Your pro­cess engi­neers think in func­tion blocks – so does the HESCH mul­ti­func­tion con­trol­ler! With the HESCH mul­ti­func­tion con­trol­ler, your pro­cess engi­neer can map com­plex pro­cess sequen­ces intui­tively, quickly and com­ple­tely wit­hout pro­gramming know­ledge.


Reduce costs – pre­serve know-how!

Up to now, the usual way of fin­ding an indi­vi­dual solu­tion for tem­pe­ra­ture regu­la­tion and sequence con­trol has usually been via pro­gramma­ble logic con­trol­lers, also known as PLCs.


An exter­nal PLC pro­grammer must be con­sul­ted for each adapt­a­tion. This often results in high costs, as the average daily rates are around 800 to 1000 euros. In addi­tion, trai­ned PLC pro­gramm­ers usually do not have the neces­sary pro­cess know­ledge. The­r­e­fore, your pro­cess engi­neer has to explain the pro­cess in detail and thus reve­als your know-how to out­si­ders. Sub­se­quently, an ela­bo­rate eva­lua­tion is neces­sary. Again and again, this leads to a loss of com­mu­ni­ca­tion bet­ween tech­ni­ci­ans and pro­gramm­ers. Even after com­mis­sio­ning, a PLC pro­grammer must be con­sul­ted for each adjus­t­ment.


Pro­mote your inter­nal know-how ins­tead of trans­fer­ring it to the out­side via PLC pro­gramm­ers. With the HE 5697 MFC, every pro­cess engi­neer is able to create, opti­mize and moni­tor com­plex pro­cess con­trols in a very short time.


The mul­ti­func­tion con­trol­ler offers the solu­tion!

The multi-func­tion con­trol­ler from HESCH breaks through these cost dri­vers and enables your pro­cess engi­neers to imple­ment your desi­red pro­ces­ses wit­hout any pro­gramming know­ledge. These can thus be adapted, opti­mi­sed and fur­ther deve­lo­ped at any time in a cost-neu­tral man­ner.
