New batch application software

March 2002 IT in Manufacturing

The constantly growing number of batch-dependent processes in various industries, from food and beverage to chemistry or pharmaceutical, has created a need for continuous recording and analysis of measured data. While there are several ways to achieve this objective, cost can often be a stumbling block. Addressing this problem, instrumentation specialist Endress + Hauser has developed a batching application package for its Memo-Graph data recorder intended for measuring almost all batch process parameters needed to ensure optimum quality in manufacturing.

Besides the recording of the signal level (min/max/average), values of the active channels (eg temperature, pressure or level) and quantities (flow), it provides the values required for efficient batch controlling, including duration, start/stop time, name and batch number. With the help of the GLC10xA software package, customers can identify individual process batches, examine and search for historical data, and print charts for further analysis. Using the Memo-Graph serial communications port, process data is retrieved and automatically imported into ReadWin. Additionally, it is possible to record and display analog and digital signals at the same time.

The batch application package for the Memo-Graph functions as a complete library system for all process data gathered.
