The system consists of any number of single process field controllers, individually controlled from a PC. The control program provides simple graphical control of multiple units. Individual controller names can be customized to facilitate use. Absolutely no programming or graphical hierarchy of any kind is required. The program can be set up for continuous control of each field controller, or control parameters can be downloaded to each controller which can then operate autonomously. Each controller can accept a variety of analog and digital inputs, and can control both electric and pneumatic actuators. The controllers communicate with the PC using a modular communications system, which can be hardwaired or with a wireless option. The flexible communications provides an extremely low cost means of implementing single point process control wherever it is needed.
