Schlagel’s EDI Controls require 110v 50/60 Hz control power and appropriate motor power supplies. The controls offer a wide variety of features that enhance the operation of your distributor.
Electrical noise will interfere with the sensor signals causing error messages.
IS safety compliance is lost.
The EDI-C7 is designed around the fact that plant automation is becoming a necessity instead of just a convenience. The UIO sits between the PLC and multiple EDI distributor and/or VGC gate controls. The UIO then talks directly to PLCs using a serial or Ethernet connection. Many PLC protocols are supported so that operation of the distributors is performed without writing a single rung of PLC code. Most importantly, any error information is communicated from each distributor to the PLC so the necessary remedial action may be taken. The EDI-C7 network is fully compatible with existing EDI networks. Any distributor with an earlier version of the EDI control may be upgraded to take advantage of the C7 features.
See UIO Documentation Below for more details.
All EDI distributors manufactured since 1994 can be upgraded to operate from the latest version of the EDI control called C7.
The earlier versions of EDI controls used state-of-the-art technology to become the most reliable and affordable electric distributor in the market. Technology has advanced tremendously in the last 20 years and so has the EDI. We have completely redesigned the operating electronics, taking advantage of the newest processors and micro components to create the C7 control we use with the distributors we ship today.
The C7 eliminates all of the electro-mechanical devices on the earlier EDI controls. No mechanical functions (except for the motor turning the spout) take place during the distributors’ operation. There is no longer maintenance requirements or the possibility of a mechanical malfunction of those components.
You can upgrade your older EDI control to C7. Here are a few reasons for doing so:
Faster, smarter and reliable are the trademarks of the EDI-C7 control. The list of C7 features is too lengthily to list here but they are all available if you decide to upgrade your older control. We are committed to keeping a very critical part of your operation up to date with the latest technology and industry leading service and technical support. Please contact us with any questions or to get an evaluation and quotation on your upgrade.
