Integrated Web server and Data Log System

The Master Controller V3+ has an integrated Data Log and Web Server system. It is possible to perform automatic data storage for proper process quality control, monitoring heating temperatures, output power, frequency, voltage, and inductor current.  An Ethernet TCP/IP port allows access to the internal web server of the Master Controller for remote programming settings and interface with SCADA / DCS systems.

  • Integrated Webserver with 2-port 100base-T Ethernet switch
  • No client software is required, only a web browser.
  • Zero configuration network for simple setup
  • Built-in Rich Internet Application (RIA) for Status Monitoring, Remote Programming, Logging, and Thermal Profile Management
  • Internal storage capacity for more than 100,000,000 data samples

Thermal Profile Management and Monitoring

  • Up to 20 Programmable Temperatures and Time Segments per Process
  • Up to 100 different storable processes
  • Maximum Power Output Programmable for Each Individual Segment
  • Temperature Tolerance Window Programmable for Each Individual Segment
  • Out-of Tolerance and End-of-Cycle Outputs for Each Process

Thermocamera Control

  • Interface with Thermo-camera via a direct Ethernet connection on the Master Contoller v3+
  • Management of up to two independent zones of interest (ROI # 1 and ROI # 2).
  • Ideal for temperature control on large surfaces or in applications where the location of the hot spot moves during the heating process (Max Temperature Spot Automatic Tracking)
  • Simultaneous measurement and control of two different areas used to prevent over heating
