Supervisor – Syncro

Supervisor – Syncro

Fosber’s corrugator is controlled by the Syncro supervisor system. Syncro can be supplied either as a pure wet-end control system, a pure dry-end control system or a total corrugator control system. Automatic wet-end features of Syncro include bridge management and calibration, synchronisation of speed and splices, partial reel label printing, roll stock management interface, roll stand monitoring, paper break detection, wet end order change as well as full displays for machine status, alarms and diagnostics. Fosber’s Syncro dry-end control supervisor provides detailed production reporting, intelligent diagnostics, pallet label print-outs, and data links to the wet-end, office and scheduling networks, and materials handling control systems. Syncro can even be further expanded to offer a fully automatic process control system.
Physically, the Syncro control system is comprised of a control panel, positioned adjacent to the other dry-end machine control panels, thus offering easy access to the operator. A certain number of client PCs with cubicle displays can be added to the main Syncro server PC Ethernet network so they can be located in any preferred area on the corrugator line. This allows the corrugator to be controlled and managed also from areas outside of the control room.

The Syncro architecture is designed with two separate networks on which all the necessary devices are connected. One network is dedicated to all the devices that enable Syncro to synchronise all the machines on the line and to monitor production progress in Real Time. The other network is for data exchange purposes that allow Syncro to interface to the various control systems present on the line such as machine/office/printer supervision controls) etc. The standard Syncro architecture can be expanded to meet the customer’s requirements and to assist in facilitating various operator tasks.
