Fast, flexible control system software with OEM assurance
In today’s competitive operating environment, we know your business needs to manage its equipment as efficiently as possible. That means using control system software that is fast, flexible and allows you to identify and solve problems. And, as we enter Industry 4.0, it means a solution that brings your operations into the digital world. The good news is our ECS™ product control solution will do exactly that.
What is it?
We’ve got more than 40 years’ experience in the field of automation and we’ve used that know-how to develop our product control software solution. Alongside many of the well-known features required for a machine control system, we’ve taken a number of features traditionally found at the plant level, including advanced trending, on-board historian and stoppage root cause search, and made them available for you at the equipment level.
Unlike a traditional local control panel, our solution integrates seamlessly with OEM assurance, uses modern communication and is built on uniform engineering standards.
How can ECS/ProductControl help my business?
Commissioning new equipment involves extensive testing and troubleshooting. Our product control solution gives your engineers the advanced tools and assistance they need to get the job done fast.
And when faults occur, it is critical to establish the root cause as quickly as possible. That’s why our software provides tools that enable fast troubleshooting with less effort. These advanced features give operators easy, efficient access to comprehensive information so they can quickly identify the problem.
With our software solution, you’ll also be able to fully automate your FLSmidth equipment to ensure it operates at its full potential, and eliminating the risk of operator error. This will help increase your productivity while freeing your operators up for other roles.
The result is a digital, connected control system software that’s fast, flexible, minimises downtime and helps your business run at its peak.
