Product Announcement from Oerlikon Leybold Vacuum USA Inc.
Apart from monitoring the turbomolecular pump, conventional controllers on the market today only accept the read out of a pressure sensor. Further configuration for the high vacuum pump system usually needs to be designed and implemented by the operator. With the new VACVISION universal vacuum controller it is now possible to simply, configure and control a turbomolecular pump system by yourself. An internal process controller automatically monitors vacuum operation. The control functions include standardized, pre-defined process arrangements which can be configured in detail. The signals from the forevacuum pressure sensors may be utilized to start the turbomolecular pump and the high vacuum transmitters.
This universal controller is capable of automatically detecting up to three active gauge heads, has the ability to control a total of five valves as well as forevacuum and high vacuum pumps. VACVISION offers the possibility of connecting vent and purge valves as well as heating and cooling systems of the turbomolecular pump. Through several universally deployable digital and analog input and output signals, further external components can be driven. With these multiple connection options, highly varied vacuum diagrams can be configured with the utmost flexibility.
The new compact VACVISION universal vacuum controller is equipped with a large 4.3'' touch panel TFT graphic display (480 x 272 pixels) and offers intuitive user guidance through the use of a modern configuration menu (wizard). Simple hardware interfacing with a fully automatic detection of peripheral instrumentation with plug and play function makes this instrument a true alternative to commercially available programmable logic controllers (PLCs).
The VACVISION replaces a PLC controller, control and power contactors and the need to invest in a separate visualization and user software, thereby providing to the customer a cost-effective all in one solution.
VACVISION will be presented at the Pittcon, Orlando, USA from March 1 - 4, 2010 and at the Analytica in Munich, Germany from March 23 - 26, 2010.
