OPERATING CONTROL GEARCASE


For the complete, safe and easy management of the system

The ultimate aim of an air cannon or a /PPI Pick-Power-Impulser system is to avoid the slowing down/stoppage of production due to a lack of incoming/outgoing inventory.

To ensure good efficiency, an air cannon system or /PPI system must operate continuously, in fact, serving as a preventative to the formation of deposits and compaction. This can only be obtained by programming a cyclic frequency of firing.

LOCAL MANAGEMENT

Thanks to an operating control gearcase PLC supplied by Barra Project International Srl it is possible to automatically control and monitor discharge cycles and alarms. Fitted in a tailor-made electrical box, it comes protected from elements of dust, moisture, temperature changes, etc. facilitating maintenance operations and allowing workers to operate in the safe area.

Operating control gearcases are equipped with multiple functions:
  • automatic cycle
  • semi-automatic cycle with selection of 4 units of 4 outputs with external connectors
  • continuous cycle - alternating cycle
  • local cycle manual start
  • pressure switch included - pressure switch excluded
  • alarm signal at start - end of cycle
  • remote connector
  • reporting of alarm location
  • ability for cascade connection of multiple units

On external panel: padlockable main power supply equipped with a live voltage LIFESAVER signal light, cycle input control with key and signal light indicating entered cycle.

CONTROL ROOM MANAGEMENT WITH DEDICATED SOFTWARE

The control gearcase PLC connects to a PC using dedicated software.
