Flat screen enclosures-Factory Information Systems Protection

Factory information systems are ways in which to acquire date, using a computer system in a factory – perfect for batch or continual production applications.

There are several main systems for shop floor data acquisition, these are as follows:

  • SCADA
  • SAP

SCADA.

This system is a centrally based system that controls entire sites and can run from one site to sites over many countries. The computer system is deployed throughout the factory using shielded data cable, so any electrical interference does not affect the speed of the data network. The data cabling is then terminated were the computers are to be located; these are normally sited in a PC enclosure for operator input. These computer enclosures protect the computer and screen from any harmful particles in the air as well as fluid and are available in both IP56 and IP66, the first number (IP56) is for heavy dust and splash protection, whilst IP65 is for wash down with a high pressure water jet.

Then above the production isles there are large flat screens that display the current production data for that day, now a normal TV would just get damaged with the air borne hazards, so they have to be fitted into a flat screen enclosure, these offer waterproof protection and depending upon the factory’s products can be either fully wash down and the unit can either be cooled by either a thermostatic cooling system, cooling tubes run from compressed air or an entire air conditioning unit.

SAP.

SAP is the fourth largest software company in the world, SAP has one of the leading Enterprise Resource Planning software packages used by the worlds major manufacturers. It is a computer based system that monitors intangible assets, human resources, materials and financial results.

The ERP software sits on the server and is distributed throughout the Local Area Network to the computers in the specific locations as well as on the large flat panel screens that displays the current production runs for each specific production line. Again flat screen enclosures are used.

LCD Enclosures Global are a leading manufacturer of LCD enclosures that also includes flat screen enclosures as well as LCD display enclosures.

LCD Enclosure Global – anything else is a compromise.
