CS-2000 Level 4

Customized State-of-the-Art Controls Systems

Use CCS' standard CS-2000 programming to take full advantage of all functions on all models of Stokes tablet presses or adapt the CS-2000 Control System to any tablet press made by any OEM.
The CS-2000 control system incorporates all off-the-shelf Allen Bradley components, lowering the total cost of ownership of the tablet press or control system upgrade. This makes the system easy to maintain while simplifying the sourcing of replacement electrical components.
This control system has been designed with the latest technology, using Allen Bradley ControlLogix PLCs and a FactoryTalk View HMI software interface. The system provides complete control of the tablet press. The system also complies with 21 CFR Part 11 for data collection and E-Signature.
