Support for Pluto Poultry StreamLine
30 Sep 2015
Support has been added to the Innova Trimming module for the new Pluto-based Poultry StreamLine control software. The new control software has been designed and implemented to be fully compatible with the Innova Trimming module in terms of configuration and data registration. A Pluto-based StreamLine can therefore be connected to Innova and configured in similar way as other flowlines. All existing reports and control screens are fully compatible with the new Poultry StreamLine.
- Station infeed control. Innova sets the online state of a station on the line based on the availability of the station in Innova. The infeed state can also be controlled manually by the operators from the RT-220 terminal screens.
- Product buffers and discharge control are configured with the Line Output settings of the active Trimming program.
- Full QC support. Innova is notified about pieces coming from the line and will request pieces to be delivered to the appropriate QC station. If a piece is successfully delivered to a QC station on the line, the piece appears on the Innova Trimming QC station.
