CS-2500 Level 5

Customized State-of-the-Art Controls Systems

Use CCS' expert CS-2500 Level 5 to take full advantage of all functions on all models of Stokes tablet presses or adapt the CS-2500 Control System to any tablet press made by any OEM including Fette, Korsch, Hata and others.
In addition to providing standard press controls found on the CS-2000 Control System, the CS-2500 features the ability to generate detailed reports -- storing production data, parameter changes/audit trail, and current and historic alarms. These reports can be organized and divided into sub-groups such as interlocks, process, and machine reports. The CS-2500 can generate custom reports to track specific information required by your application.
A development license of XLReporter by SyTech is included with all systems so that end users can create and customize their own reports.
This control system has been designed with the latest technology using off-the-shelf components resulting in a system that is easy to operate and maintain. Using Allen Bradley ControlLogix PLCs and Factory Talk 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.
