03.09.2018 K-Vision controller can now support two independent feeder lines

Coperion K-Tron, Niederlenz, Switzerland, has added new features to its proven K-Vision™ software. The K-Vision controller is a graphical operator interface for controlling multiple devices such as feeders or feeder refill (vacuum receivers) in a process. With the release of K-Vision Software version 2.0, the K-Vision is now able to handle a total of 24 devices in one or two lines.  This is a major upgrade over the previous version which managed a maximum of 16 feeder controllers in a single line. K-Vision offers a quad screen display mode for viewing multiple pages on one feeder or a single page on multiple feeders. Support for over a dozen languages – including Chinese and Japanese – is included, and additional languages can be added on request.

Designed for simple operation and fast and easy start-up, K-Vision offers graphic visualisation of process information, utilising flexible, easy to use trend graphs. This feeder interface offers event logging and supports all of the different feeding control types for both continuous and batch operation.

K-Vision offers a variety of remote access options. A second K-Vision can be connected via Ethernet as a remote interface for visualisation and control of feeder and line parameters. K-Vision also comes with a VNC server, allowing any VNC client – on a PC, tablet or smartphone – connected to the same network to be used as a secondary user interface. In addition to the current connectivity options, including VNC, Ethernet/IP, Profinet, Modbus TCP as well as others, K-Vision now also has email capability. No optional hardware or software is necessary. It is a standard feature.
