Up to four central dryers and 48 drying hoppers can be viewed and controlled from up to four remote access screens.

NOVATEC, Baltimore, Maryland, introduced an FX2 NovaNet™ version of its original FlexXpand control that provides access and control of all NOVATEC auxiliary equipment.

Control is provided through 7" or 12" high-resolution color touchscreen PLCs, and the system also is remotely accessible with a networked smart device or PC. FX2 NovaNet provides control of up to 160 NOVATEC receivers, 20 vacuum pumps and offers many options, such as source-to-destination ID proofing. Processors can start using the system on a small scale and expand it as they grow without any extra programming.
