When power is applied to the HMI Control Panel the Log-In screen will appear.
The Log-In screen keypad has two access levels.
Admin – Has access to everything.
Operator – Has access to the Overview, Maintenance & Motion Screens.
The Overview screen provides current status and operation of the wash-down system. The following can be used as a guide the Overview Screen layout.
Faults/Message: Ready only status of each wash-down system
Water Valve: Open/Closed
Operating Mode: Local/Remote/Auto_PLC
Loaded Sequence: Current running sequence
Elevation: Current Elevation Position in Degrees
Rotation: Current Rotation Position in Degrees
Home: Home command runs wash-down system to reference Elevation/Rotation axis to zero degrees
Park: Predefined position to place wash-down system when wash sequence is completed
Stop Sequence: Stop sequence o selected wash-down system
Pause Sequence: Pauses sequence of selected system
Start Wash-Sequence: Starts sequence of selected wash-down system.
Home All: Home the Elevation/Rotation axis of all three systems
Park All: Park all three systems to predefined position
Stop All Sequences: Stop sequence of all three systems
Pause All Sequences: Pauses sequence of all three systems
The Pattern Screen allows the user to create custom wash-down patterns for virtually any object that requires wash-down.
Typical pattern profiles are shown and can be used to define a new user pattern by duplicating and modifying the data.
The patterns have four connected lines or arcs that can be defined and modified.
The predefined profiles allow any type of pattern to be generated by the operator for use in their wash-down application.
The Pattern Screen allows the operator to enter data directly to define the patterns or can use the arrows to move the wash-down system and define the pattern in a Teach and Learn method.
The Sequence Screen allows the operator to define a sequence using the custom patterns developed from the Pattern Screen.
Each sequence will be stored in its own file and handled entirely on the file system.
The Sequence Screen also allows the operator to use Time Delays, Speed, Park, and Go To statements to create rather intricate sequences.
Moreover, by using multiple Go To statements provides the ability to define a sequence without actually using a pattern.
The Setup Screen is used to setup the wash-down system and I/O configuration for assigned Beckoff I/O modules.
This screen is for experienced users and any changes could have undesirable effects on operation of the wash-down system.
In order to access this screen the operator must have Admin level access through the Log-On screen.
The Slice I/O Screen displays the status of the assigned I/O and is useful during maintenance and troubleshooting.
The operator uses the Setup Screen to define the I/O and assign predefined labels (CCW, CW, Up, Down, etc…)
The Maintenance Screen has Operator Access.
Through this screen the operator can change the following:
Turn Water Valves On/Off
Home All Monitors
Park All Monitors
