Weir Technik uses our latest technology based on Evolution MMXV1. This has been adapted as an in-field replacement of all our previous Operating Systems prior to 2005 (System 1-4). With the intention over time of phasing out the support of these older systems, we have designed an upgrade path so that machine replacement is not the only option. All upgrades come complete with a 3 year warranty.
The system has six available security codes for the different areas, Program selection, Productivity, Diagnostics, Program settings, Global settings and Machine settings. Various security options are available including the ability to change the security codes and to enable or disable certain security codes.
All machines have an internal storage capability, which stores parameters such as factory settings, that include number of lanes and folds depending on machine type.
Parameters can be stored on a USB memory device for safe keeping or can be transferred to a computer. Register sheets are available that will decode the parameters downloaded from the machine.
Program and global parameters can be transferred to any other H J Weir machine taking the machine type in to consideration.
Factory Based Defaults are created on final testing of the machine, therefore if any of the settings have been changed and undesirable machine effects have been witnessed, the machine can be reverted back to factory defaults within the machine settings area.
Each of the I/O modules can be accessed via the Touch Screen Controller, which gives the ability to monitor the condition of the input or output modules. Inputs can be monitored and outputs can be forced, also overload or short circuits can be easily identified.
If the system has detected a blockage on the crossfolder, an alarm will sound, stop the crossfolder and display a message on the Touch Screen Controller identifying whereabouts the blockage can be located.
Each machine has a simple productivity feature. It is also possible to view the quantity of rejected items during a period of time. Each program stores its own count and does not transfer from program to program.
