Maxson Automatic Machinery has upgraded its product offerings to include both Ethernet and serial ports that allow remote diagnosis of drive, logic control, operator interface, and safety faults. The sheeter’s drives, logic controller, and operator interface have thousands of self-0diagnostic annunciated faults that identify the specific location or cause of a problem. These faults can be viewed remotely either through a modem using the serial port provided or using the Ethernet port tied into the site’s local area network. In cases where an electrical program has been corrupted, the damaged algorithm can be replaced or modified from Maxson’s distant location using a downloading procedure. See maxsonautomatic.com.
