ProLeiT at BrauBeviale 2019

in Nuremberg, 12 - 14 November 2019, Hall 7 / Stand 7-619

ProLeiT, the solution provider for industrial automation, process control technology and Manufacturing Execution Systems (MES), will once again be showcasing numerous innovative ideas and product highlights at this year’s BrauBeviale – the leading European trade fair for the beverage industry being held in Nuremberg from 12 to 14 November 2019.

Visit Hall 7 / Stand 619 where ProLeiT will be demonstrating how the modular process control systems brewmaxx and Plant iT optimize the production processes of renowned breweries and beverage manufacturers. The focus of this year’s trade fair stand is firmly on the new system version 9.70, which offers innovative features and optimisations. At BrauBeviale, ProLeiT will also present various use cases in the area of mobile apps, Software as a Service, video assistance and AI, besides unveiling a new add-on that – independent of brewmaxx and Plant iT – facilitates everyday work, especially in small businesses.

Upgrade 9.70: New features and optimizations
A key feature of the new system version 9.70 is the OPC UA server. It is therefore possible to exchange process and production data quickly and securely with partner systems before processing the data further, if necessary. Partner systems can be, for example, SCADA, MES, ERP or quality management systems with an OPC UA client interface. This enables continuous communication from individual sensors and actuators to the ERP level. Built-in security mechanisms ensure maximum IT security – ideal for implementing Industry 4.0 applications.

Particularly practical for operators: With the new system version, there is an additional tab in the operating dialogue of automation objects that displays historical values as a measured value curve. Operators now receive the information right where they need it – which greatly simplifies and optimizes their daily work.

The High Attention Library was developed to detect faults even more easily and quickly in the process image. Once the feature has been activated, the process image is displayed in a discreet colour (white, grey, etc.). While alarm states are indicated by a bright colour (e.g. red). This means that faults or deviations in the target state can be detected immediately, even in extremely complex process images.

New add-on: brewmaxx Maintenance / Plant Direct iT Maintenance
The efficient and predictive maintenance of plants is elementary for companies in order to achieve maximum plant performance. With the brewmaxx Maintenance and Plant Direct iT Maintenance add on, ProLeiT offers a compact, fully configurable maintenance management solution that enables the evaluation and planning of all maintenance measures – both for individual automation objects, such as valves or motors, as well as entire packaging units, e.g. compressors or packers.

ProLeiT goes mobile: New apps optimise work sequences
“Mobilize the control room” – ProLeiT has adopted this motto and developed several innovative apps that facilitate everyday work in plants. For example, operating dialogues for brewmaxx / Plant iT are displayed directly on mobile phones. The operator therefore always has a perfect overview of the plant. The process area monitor, on the other hand, shows operators exactly where their attention is required within the plant. An app with recipe editor, materials management system and continuous batch tracking has been specially developed for small businesses. The app is therefore not only a valuable aid in daily production but is also ideal for preparing HACCP-compliant audits.


Plant Liqu iT: Recipe management for hybrid processes
Plant Liqu iT is ProLeiT’s reliable process control system for handling liquid processes. It contains additional automation classes that have been specially developed for the requirements of the beverage industry and covers functionalities such as configurable parameters, sequence-based processes, technology-related recipe control and automatic route control. When Plant Liqu iT is used in combination with the Plant iT material module, additional functions such as material master data management, inventory management and batch traceability are available.

brewmaxx Integrate MES, reporting and analyses
brewmaxx Integrate allows full insight into all your production processes. A key prerequisite for achieving this objective is continuous information management at MES level, which can be integrated and operated infinitely across process sequences and departments. brewmaxx Integrate can be used to merge and evaluate the required data from the individual production areas. Numerous properties, e.g. configurable reports for web browsers and mobile end devices, provide maximum flexibility and protection when implementing a company-wide MES reporting system.
