ASM TP has the following features:

  • visualization of the current state of equipment and running of the technological process;
  • automatic cutting of the strip into measured lengths;
  • hand control of mechanisms with full control by means of ASM TP;
  • the mode «Automatic without cut» (is used for particularly important order, where the maximum cut accuracy is required, and the operator visually monitors the cutting of each piece. This automation system measures the desired length, stops and waits for operator commands «Cut»);
  • archiving of the technological process parameters for subsequent analysis in clarifying causes of abnormal situations.

The structure and composition of the ASM TP

     The principle of the automatic control system is a traditional for the industry. The main functions of management and data collection are made by the controller installed in the cabinet process automation. The controller is equipped with the necessary means for electrical isolation and conversion to digital signals from the sensors, as well as for the control actions. According to information channel STA-2 is connected with an industrial workstation located on the mill control board.

Hardware tools as part of ASM TP:

  • the console, which is an industrial workstation with LCD display and functional keyboard (AWS-8120, Advantech);
  • a box for technological automation.
     All output and signals are brought in the technological automation box STA-2, which is located in the engine room and has an attached design. In the box signals are sent to the board of normalization and galvanic isolation, than with the help of input boards (Grayhill modules, UNIO-95-5, Fastwel) they are digitized and the obtained values, given to real values (PCA-6144, Advantech), are transmitted by information communication channel to industrial station to displaying and archiving.


   Программное обеспечение АСУ-ТП основано на SCADA/HMI системе Trace Mode 5.

   The software of ASM TP is based on the SCADA / HMI system Trace Mode 5. During the work the mnemonic diagram of the technological process of industrial station is displayed on the display. Equipment and its current state is shown schematically on mnemonic diagram. The enabled equipment during its operation is highlighted.



   The following process parameters are displayed on the mnemonic diagram:

  • mode of operation APCS;
  • defined speed of the mill;
  • the actual speed of the mill;
  • defined length of the cut;
  • the actual length of the final cut piece;
  • the cut error (in the form of diagram with a color alarm when going beyond the norm);
  • the current length of a measured the strip (intended for the «Automatic without the cut» mode);
  • readiness NNP, magnetic tape transport mechanism;
  • the current position of the scissors.
   In addition the software allows you to display industrial station statistical information (number of cut dimensional pieces per hour, shift, day, month), observe the current status of technological process parameters in the form of graphs and record them in a file for later analysis.
