A new example of the usage of a wide range of controller's possibilities is placing it in the control room of two ski lifts. MultiCon monitors operating parameters, informs on abnormal situations and controls the actuators of the lift.
The following model works well in the application: CMC-141-PS42/E/CP2/FT2/HM2-0B1
HM2 module consists of two inputs of the operating time counter, which are activated during the outage of the lift.
FT2 module consists of two flowmeter pulse inputs to control snowmaking process and two current inputs to control ambient
CP2 module consists of two counter inputs used to monitor the number of outages.
USB port located in the front section of a device facilitates acquisition of recorded data.
Each input of the operating time counter (HM2) is activated by a signal from the safety system that stops a given lift. Those signals are also counted by counter inputs (CP2). Data concerning a respective lift are logged once a day and deleted right after, therefore a report is generated, specifying the number and total duration of outages during a day. Flowmeter inputs (FT2) receive signals from the flowmeters placed in snow cannons. Their data logging (in this case with the period of 1 min) is activated only for the operating time of the snow cannons by sending a signal to the digital input built in the supply module. The user receives a report considering the flow rate during the snow cannon operation and the total amount of the water used.
