A new line of Ross SysCon recipe controls now allows operators to monitor and control the human machine interface (HMI) screen from a smart phone or tablet. Available as an option on all Ross mixing, blending, drying, and dispersion equipment, these systems can be configured to automatically send text or e-mail messages regarding operating status, production concerns, or alarm notifications. Pictured is a NEMA 12 control panel built for a PowerMix planetary disperser. Start/stop/speed controls, speed and load displays, temperature display, cycle timer, vacuum pump on/off controls, and emergency stop are all accessible from the panel and multiple mobile devices. The interactive phone and tablet apps developed by Ross SysCon are designed to help operators and managers save time while staying connected wherever they are in the plant.
