IBC Control Gets Faster and More Responsive

The IS-IBC1 bubble control from D.R.

The IS-IBC1 bubble control from D.R. Joseph Inc., Grand Prairie, Texas, has been upgraded with a 32-bit processor that’s 100 times faster than before. This lets it calculate bubble size seven times more often than the previous generation. It also has a new interface with an Ethernet port, which lets it integrate easily with blown film extrusion control and data monitoring. Standard protocols are Modbus RTU and Modbus ASCII. The new hardware is also retrofittable on older IBCs from D.R. Joseph or other OEMs.
