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.

 

What FLSmidth products is it available with?

Our ECS product control solution is the standard employed for most FLSmidth supplied mining and cement equipment. It is available with our ranges of crushers, grinding mills, coolers, stackers, vertical mills as well as many other products.

A tailor-made control solution for your FLSmidth equipment

We know you need to get equipment online quickly, we know your business can’t afford delays due to technical failures, and we know you want to get the most out of your operations and lift your productivity. That’s where our ECS product control solution can help.

OEM solution
Our control platform and software has been made specifically for your FLSmidth equipment so you can be sure it offers the complete protection and functionalities you need to get the most out of your operations.
Faster commissioning
Our software gives your engineers advanced tools to help with testing and troubleshooting during commissioning. That helps speed up installation and allows you to get your equipment working productively, as quickly as possible. And because some components of the control hardware and software come pre-installed in FLSmidth equipment, wiring and installation efforts can be reduced by up to 70 per cent.
Rapid troubleshooting
When your equipment fails, you need to identify the cause of the problem, fast. We’ve equipped our software with advanced features taken straight from our ECS platform to ensure your engineers can find faults quickly and easily, allowing you to get your operations back online sooner. With our control solution you’ll have exclusive access to FLSmidth’s team of expert support staff, who will be available 24/7 to assist with any troubleshooting.
Flexible applications
Our ECS product control solution is specially designed to be flexible to your business needs. It can be easily integrated with numerous other systems to adapt to the individual configuration of your project and is compatible with the major PLC manufacturers. This hardware independence makes it much easier to upgrade systems in the future as you won’t be dependent on one supplier.
