EQUIPMENT FOCUS Process Control System


The SIMATIC PCS 7 process control system is flexibly expandable, from the SIMATIC PCS 7 Lab compact control unit for the laboratory, to SIMATIC PCS 7 Box compact control technology solutions for pilot proj- ects and pilot systems, to large distributed multiserver/multiclient systems. SIMATIC PCS 7 is based on the proven SIMATIC S7 controller units These systems offer deci- sive advantages, especially during the con- struction and approval of new production sites. Because the same automation struc- ture is used for mass as well as for individu- al production processes, the approval pro- cess can be simplified and time to market significantly reduced.

F4T version 3.0 is available with encrypted data log records to help meet various indus- try requirements. Other benefits of the data logging feature include the ability to log di- rectly to a USB memory stick, transfer data log files over Ethernet or to the USB host ports and select which parameters to data log. Version 3.0 also releases the graphi- cal trending functionality. Users can create up to four trend screens and they have the ability to scroll through a matching color legend of parameters on the trend chart. There is also a snapshot screen capture fea- ture. The trend chart image can be saved to a USB host port location for viewing, email- ing or printing options. The F4T is Watlow’s ¼ DIN temperature process controller with touch-screen technology that delivers im- proved functionality, providing users with a powerful, flexible and easy to use device in one versatile package. It features a 4.3- inch, capacitive color touch panel with high resolution and graphical user interface that provides customized control for demand- ing applications.


Watlow www.watlow.com Protein Sequencers Offer Enhanced Sensitivity


The PPSQ-51A/53A protein sequencers employ the company’s SPD-M30A photodiode array detector for higher sensitivity. The detector fea- tures a capillary cell that is 8.5 times longer than standard cells, which increases sensitivity and enables the study of longer protein sequences. PPSQ series protein sequencers separate PTH- amino acids isocratically. Isocratic sequence analysis provides more stable retention times. That means peaks detected in previous cycles can be cancelled using chromatogram subtrac- tion, making it easier for users to identify the correct amino acid. Performing PTH-amino acid analysis in isocratic mode also enables labora- tories to reduce liquid waste and running costs through mobile phase recycling. New PPSQ software can be configured to meet a labora- tory’s needs whether it is regulated, research and development, or academic. The software enables compliance with FDA 21 CFR Part 11 guidelines with regard to security, user man- agement, and audit trail requirements. Easy-to- use data analysis functions simplify operation, data processing and reporting. These functions allow the reprocessing of chromatograms, the overlaying of multiple chromatograms, chro- matogram subtraction, and automatic estima- tion of amino acid sequences. Additionally, the PPSQ-51A/53A sequencers provide customized reports and yield graph display for a quick and comprehensive view of data.
