Fuji Electric Co., Ltd. (headquartered in Tokyo, Japan; led by President Michihiro Kitazawa) is pleased to announce the launch of a high-speed control system for plants and systems in which its newly developed controller is applied.
2）Synchronous control of devices under multiple controllers to improve yield
In large-scale steel plants, multiple controllers are used to control 300 to 400 drive devices, and even a slight time lag in the control of these devices can affect the quality of the finished products. This system is the first in the industry to implement multi-axis synchronous control that simultaneously controls devices under more than one controller without time lag. (See figure below.) This contributes to improved production yield.
3）Better reliability thanks to the capability to prevent equipment outages in the event of a network failure
In a typical control system, all of the devices connected to the controller are located on the same network, which means that if there is a disrupted connection or any other network failure, they will all stop simultaneously. This system employs a loop configuration, which is a system that allows data to be transmitted even in the event of a network failure by avoiding the point of failure, which reduces the risk of equipment shutdown. This has improved system reliability.
