Dri-Air Industries, Inc., East Windsor, Connecticut, a provider of compressed air and desiccant drying technology, has announced the SmartView Desktop App. This web-based application connects a company’s dryers through each dryer’s unique IP address. It allows control over multiple dryers – from just one screen – without any need to walk the plant floor.
Available with the SmartTouch controlled dryers, the SmartView Desktop App puts the control of all dryers from one central location; showing dryer status, dewpoint, hopper status, regeneration status and the dryer IP address. From this one screen, operators can start and stop dryers, set hopper temperatures on single and dual hopper portable dryers, and even customize names for each of the individual dryers.
Dri-Air Industries introduced the SmartTouch controls with Industry 4.0 communications in early 2020. The SmartTouch controller features a 7” color touchscreen with easy-to-use prompts for temperature, time and dewpoint display. It comes standard on the HP series dryers, dual hopper dryers and optional on the two-bed, Arid-X dryers. SmartTouch features include a -49°F dewpoint monitor, a seven-day timer for automatic start and stops, diagnostic functions with trending for temperatures and dewpoint, a resin library, OPC-UA open platform for maximum connectivity, available Wi-Fi connectivity and an available ethernet connectivity hub.
