The M8 Network Control

The M8 network control system was developed for medium to complex network configurations with up to 320 network participants. Every participant is connected via a bus module to the network and can be configured for a specific task. This guarantees the maximum flexibility for customized material handling systems.
  • M8 touch-screen – The high-resolution touch-screen simplifies user control, as well as the adjustment of process parameters and allows the user a comprehensive view of all attached units.
  • Line server LS-B30T – Provides for the control of up to 31 freely configurable bus modules, which can be connected in parallel to one CAN-Bus line. All functions which are available for the respective bus modules can be managed and controlled from the line server. A complete system can have up to 8 individual CAN-Bus lines.
  • Bus module BM-4/4 – Provides individual control of vacuum loaders, blower stations, central filters, dry air valves, purging valves, etc. Any function can be assigned to the 4 digital inputs and outputs of the bus modules and therefore, gives the system virtually unlimited possibilities of configurability for each particular application.

Networked Drying System

The M8 control system permits the connection of DRYMAX battery dryers with network cards to the central M8 control system. This allows the visualization of internal parameters and conditions on the generously dimensioned M8 control screen as well as the entry of temperature values for the various connected drying hoppers.
