Milton Keynes-based Dustcontrol UK Ltd (www.dustcontroluk.co.uk
), a dust extraction specialist, has entered a new era of smart technology with the launch of two new comprehensive control systems that can be used on 90% of its stationary units world-wide.
The company says that its new Smart Panel and Base Panel will be game-changers in the way its stationary machines are operated, offering a high degree of functionality and automation as standard.
The Base Panel is a standardised and configurable product with a clear and simple definition of functions and built-in frequency drive. It has been developed as a compact and efficient control system suitable for th company’s central vacuum systems.
Taking Dustcontrol UK into the era of industry 4.0, the Smart Panel comes in a compact, standardised format and delivers a configurable solution suitable for the majority of Dustcontrol’s more complex installations.
It will be used in combination with an energy-efficient, externally mounted frequency converter for starting and controlling the motor.
James Miller, Dustcontrol UK managing director, said: "The new modern control systems will make our stationary units more efficient than ever. We will now be able to offer a connected, comprehensive solution for both service and maintenance, filling in the demand of a more automated solution applicable to nearly every imaginable set-up.”
He added: “The Base Panel has been necessary to guarantee simple effectiveness and ensure that our customers with smaller central vacuum systems get the best solution for their specific system.
“The Smart Panel will provide our customers with a system that offers extended standardised functionality and connection possibilities in an energy, cost-efficient, and environmentally friendly way.
“Ultimately, the new technology will give us significant benefits in terms of preventative maintenance, as well as helping us provide better service and support to our customers.”
Smart Panel is delivered ready to be connected to Dustcontrol UK’s cloud-based solution, enabling data logging, monitoring and control of the system. Connection can be with either a fixed connection or a 4G connection via a SIM card. The comprehensive solution including service and maintenance will be available this autumn.
The company, based in Milton Keynes, has over 45 years’ of experience in developing dust extraction solutions and centralised vacuum systems to fit client requirements in the food, pharmaceutical, manufacturing, and engineering industries. They are experts in capturing dust at its source - both where and when it is created.
