PC vs PLC Systems
Depending on your needs we’ll help you choose either a PC or PLC system tailored to your site.
Reotemp’s EcoProbe™ System is customized to meet your facilities unique needs. Reotemp’s proprietary wireless system can be customized to increase transmitting power for even the largest of facilities.
Each facility has its own unique layout and setup, which means we’ll need to customize the antenna we use to fit your needs. On any application, we use only high quality antennas that are above and beyond what is needed. This ensures you’ll have consistent readings. It also accounts for the occasional interference typically found on composting sites (large equipment driving between probes and the receiver antenna, probes at various angles, etc.).
Reotemp’s receiver organizes data packets from EcoProbes located in the field. Typically, the receiver is mounted to an internal wall of the control building. The receiver is either hardwired into the PLC or wirelessly transmits its data to a personal computer. Depending on your facility needs you choose either a PLC or PC system option.
CompostWatch™ PC Software
For PLC systems, Reotemp partners with a 3rd party to create and customize HMI software to your facility. For PC systems, Reotemp offers windows-based software called CompostWatch PC.
CompostWatch PC software displays live temperature readings as they come in from the radio link. It also displays a log history of the readings and the history can be viewed graphically or exported into standard Windows applications such as Excel. Unlimited phone support is offered for the CompostWatch PC software. We stand behind our products.
