Introduction

This system is the miniature variant of the process monitoring & control solution by Rheonics. It consists of an industrial embedded PC mounted inside a stainless-steel cabinet with integrated 10.4” display and touch screen. The industrial PC runs a control application which measures viscosity, density using Rheonics inline sensors and optional pH/Level by external third-party sensors. The process is controlled by up to two electrical and two pneumatic outputs which can control valves/pumps/mixers/chillers, etc.

Industrial communication options include an Ethernet connection, WiFi and USB. Additional user interface elements include a buzzer + alarm light and 4 buttons including LEDs.
