If there are numeric or text-based parameters to modify, screens with numeric or alphanumeric input pads, and dialogue window pops up, and disappears again after completing the entry.
ENGEL control units give users the ability to add display modules and functions to existing screens, or to create completely new screens. A special Mask Editor on the EC 200 and the CC 200 simplifies this process. You can add variable groups to existing masks, and then add actual values, target values, markers or switches to the variables groups. These functions help the operator to customise the display to match his personal requirements or those of the company.
Anybody who wants to enter or modify parameters or settings on the machine, must first log in on the control unit sing a special user ID. Every user is assigned a language, ser name and user level. The control relies on contactless RFID technology. Changes made at the machine are automatically logged by the control unit, along with the date and time.The RFID access system speeds up the user login process, and protects the machine and robot against incorrect settings.
A help system with graphics supports operations and maintenance of the injection moulding machine. Pressing the help key pops up a dialogue with targeted support, explanations or instructions that always refer to the current function.
The EC 200 / CC 200 control unit gives users the ability to add notes to mould data sets. The notebook function gives you the ability to store specific information for production use in a safe and clearly visible way. You can even establish your own mould and production process-related help system.
Many machine function parameters can be set in different ways. And the touch screen is a particularly convenient input setting tool: After expanding the graphical window, you can modify the parameter profile on screen with your finger tip or a stylus. This means that you can move profile key points or the whole characteristic between two points.
