FFU Service

A big research institution for Micro- and Nano-technologies in Nordrhein Westfalen enlarges their cleanroom capacity this summer. The additional cleanroom surface is covered by FFU's from NICOTRA||Gebhardt that are controlled and monitored by an existing FFU-control centre since last Tuesday.

The commissioning runs without any problem, besides to the correct addressing only some max-speeds needs to be set by hand, what is really no issue with our control devices for EC-fans.

Data link to Beckhoff-PLC via OPC-UA

Our local water supply company is realising a new waste water handling appliance in a small town. The control of the rake bare is our task inside the complex structure.

  • waste water handling rake bare
  • waste water handling configuration
  • waste water handling menu setpoints
  • waste water handling visualization

Two different operation modes are possible; either the difference of water level in front and rear the rake or the level of waste water in front of the rake is used to control. The drive of the rake is controlled by frequency inverter. The measurement of the filling level is realised by 2 radar sensors.

There is a Beckhoff-PLC used as industrial PC with 12’’ touchscreen. The I/Os are integrated by Ethercat, the link to the FMS is done via OPC-UA. All this is programmed by TWINCat3.
