proNTo can be used for different plant configurations: from the single user system with one computer up to complex plant configurations with several computers, which are configured for different tasks. Depending on the plant complexity several weighing systems can be integrated: manual-weighing station for weighing processes within the production process and truck scales for incoming and outgoing goods. The required separate components and networks structures can be combined and adapted individually.
Of course a remote maintenance is possible for all systems via ISDN or VPN (Virtual Private Network).
Single user system
The graphic alongside shows an example for a single user system with the most important components. Among others PLC, weighing electronics and a computer that can realize several functions such as plant computer, database server and process-server at the same time.
Complexe plant configurations
The graphic alongside shows an example for a complex plant configuration. The following components from part of the installation: one or several PLC, weighing electronics, different weighing workstations, e.g. manual weighing station and truck scales. Several computers can realize different functions, depending on the individual requirements: one computer can be configured as database server and further computer can be configured as plant computer. Furthermore, disposition- and quality management will be allocated to different computers.
