SmartPAC 2, the flagship press automation controller from Honeywell Wintriss, is engineered with a built-in backup utility. The unit’s setup memory can be backed up over an Ethernet network on a user-selected server and later restored if an incident causes the memory to become corrupted. The backup capability is configured using the company’s previously released SmartView networking utility, which also allows users to view the status of the jobs running in networked SmartPAC 2s from any computer via the Internet.
Functions available to networked SmartPAC 2s include the ability of press operators to send text messages via pagers, mobile phones, and e-mail, and for firmware upgrades to be downloaded to the controller from a Wintriss Web site. Customers who want to create a paperless shop can purchase the Info Center option, which makes drawings, photos, and setup sheets available to networked SmartPAC 2s from the customer’s server.
