Novatec Inc. said its new FlexMaster series of controllers for conveying plastic raw materials can be easily expanded to include dozens of additional receivers, as well as pumps and purge valves, but it can be operated without special training.
FlexMaster also can be remotely accessed via an Ethernet connection, said Chuck Morgan, resin-handling business director. It can even e-mail alarms to any e-mail account on a personal computer, Blackberry device or smart phone.
The color touch-screen control panel, in its basic configuration, is hard-wired to as many as five vacuum pumps, 32 material receivers and 25 purge valves. Flexmaster can be expanded to add as many as 88 more receivers, 15 pumps and 64 purge valves.
Novatec is based in Baltimore.
