Recent upgrades have equipped Davis-Standard's EPIC III extrusion supervisory control system with extensive remote-access capabilities, allowing multiple lines to be monitored via a computer or cell phone from any location. Instant notification about line conditions, alarms, events, and other changes are sent directly to e-mail accounts or cell phones. This upgrade is offered on new EPIC III systems and for retrofit on those sold in the past three years.
"Processors have fewer engineers and technicians to support multiple lines," explains John Clemens, electrical engineering manager at Davis-Standard LLC, Pawcatuck, Conn. "This technology enables access to several lines in different plants so that one engineer, regardless of location, can monitor them effectively. It facilitates troubleshooting and can help customers avoid costly repairs and downtime."
