Process Control in the food industry Amplicon

A leading manufacturer of hand cooked potato based snacks was looking for a method of monitoring the flow of packets of crisps along a production line, to ensure that the correct number were packed in a box.

 

The solution Amplicon

The problem of wastage plays an especially important part in the profitability of any company involved in the production of food. Amplicon was asked to provide a process control system comprising of industrial ethernet switches and digital I/O devices connected to proximity sensors along their production lines. These were required to count the crisp packets being boxed up at the end of the line. The Moxa ioLogik E2210 was specified to monitor these sensors and to provide a local alarming function that would indicate a problem with the flow of crisp packets along the production line. The E2210's Active I/O feature combined with their engineers' proficiency in HTML code, allowed a complex requirement to be handled easily. Signals were also relayed back to a remote control centre where monitoring and data logging could take place.

As this was an industrial environment, it was decided to use the EDS-308 industrial ethernet switch to connect the Moxa E2210s to the network. This was selected as the reliability of the network connection was considered to be an important factor. The final solution used a Moxa E2210 on each of the eight production lines, along with four of the Moxa EDS-308 switches.
