Measure, control and log data with Multicon
October 2017, PLCs, DCSs & Controllers


The Simex MultiCon range of advanced controllers offers the capability of controlling and data recording in one compact device. Although the MultiCon has been designed for advanced applications in industrial automatic control engineering, the device can also be used in smaller systems. It can be equipped with three isolated RS-485 interfaces which make it a perfect solution for distributed systems, with the MultiCon working as a CPU and when using an Ethernet interface the device can be monitored via the Internet. The wide range of input and output modules allows customisation of MultiCon to suite customer needs.

With colour TFT display and touch screen working on the user interface becomes a pleasure. The controller also allows the use of PC keyboard and mouse operation, as well as free DAQ manager software for a user friendly experience.

MultiCon’s CMC-99 has up to 48 measurement or digital inputs and 60 virtual channels whereas the CMC-141 has 50% more I/O and virtual channels. Users are able to decide how they would like to configure the virtual channels. They can be used for direct measurement readings, mathematical functions, timers, profile creation, set points or virtual objects.

ScadaLite functionality has just been added to the MultiCon as an innovative feature that allows users to manage a process directly from the display. Essential information can be presented in a graphical form enriched with animations, dynamic graphs and the most significant numerical parameters, as well as audible alarms.

The ScadaLite implementation is simple, users upload a graphical design or a photograph of the application and then just distribute the measurements/indicators – all done in a few minutes directly on the MultiCon screen.
