Wintriss Controls’ press automation controller
Acton, Massachusetts – Wintriss Controls Group recently introduced its new SmartPAC PRO press automation controller. The SmartPAC PRO features a large, easy-to-use vivid touch screen interface, dual-core processors, user-configurable dashboards, virtually unlimited tool setup storage, the ability to share setups among networked SmartPAC PRO units and more.
The SmartPAC Pro’s new tool summary screen enables users to view the entire contents of each programmed setup on a single screen, providing users the ability to place notes for the job, and all content can be exported to a USB disk as comma-separated values.
Users can also create custom home screen dashboards to display the information they use most often. These dashboards can be named and saved in the favorites menu, and quickly recalled at any time.
The new SmartPAC PRO architecture supports advanced connectivity features such as remote access from PCs and mobile devices, email messaging, and compatibility with Wintriss’s IIoT production tracking OEE ShopFloorConnect software solution.
A Wonderware hosting option enables the SmartPAC PRO to run independently-created third-party HMIs for associated automation, reducing the number of screens required on the press.
SmartPAC PRO compatibility is maintained with previous Wintriss legacy SmartPac 1 and 2 modules, including the DiProPAC die protection system, ProCamPAC programmable limit switch, WaveFormPAC tonnage signature monitor, WPC 2000 Clutch/Brake control, and others.
The new SmartPAC PRO enclosure is also available with an optional Industrial Pendant Arm for mounting on presses.
