SYSCON-PlantStar System


The Portrait member of the family of PlantStar systems offers the added features of process monitoring and evaluation to its comprehensive manufacturing planning and scheduling tools.

Building upon the strong foundation of its planning solutions Portrait supplies the capability of monitoring discrete sensor input as well as Open Process Control or OPC to record, evaluate and display key process data for each piece of equipment being monitored by the system. The data gathered by the system can be used to feed PlantStar’s SPC/SQC subsystem and provide high-speed process profiling that can generate alarm conditions via voice paging, emails and other real-time visual and audible alarms.

The Portrait system is only limited by the number of process conditions that can be captured from each individual machine being monitored by the system.
