Despatch created a custom LCC benchtop oven and software system for a customer requiring the ability to scan product label bar codes and employee ID tags. The LCC system features special Protocol Manager™ software, individual “mini” PLCs with displays, and a touch screen operator interface.
Despatch’s custom configuration allows employees to scan in the product lot labels prior to loading the product into the oven. Photo sensors in the oven chambers confirm product presence. The operator then selects the desired processing profile and follows the displayed prompts. The system logic sounds an alarm and locks out the oven controls if a cycle is interrupted or a door is opened before the cycle is complete.
