TraceVision® is eltherm’s innovative solution for control and monitoring of electrical heat tracing systems for use in any type of industry. It is safe and reliable, and the system’s modular approach provides maximum flexibility. TraceVision’s heat tracing controllers may be programmed individually and configured for each particular heat tracing circuit. A heat tracing system may be configured with up to 72 temperature controllers (type EL-HTC/22) capable of providing several operating modes, including ON/OFF, PI or ATPC (ambient sensing) control. Each controller may be individually programmed and key parameters including temperature set points and alarm limits, current alarm levels as well input from up to 12 temperature probes may be configured.
TraceVision® is based on an industrial PLC platform with multiple CAN-BUS I/O modules. The user may access the system using eltherm’s software, developed exclusively for and based on a client-server approach, allowing several sessions from several devices to be operated at the same:
TraceVision® Viewer: client software to allow the user to operate the system by connecting to the server (TraceVision® Manager)
TraceVision® Manager: server software which allows the connection to multiple Viewers, performs the following functions:
Manage the database which stores all the information of the particular project
Manages communications with the heat tracing controllers and interface with TraceVision® Viewer
Logs alarms and data from the heat tracing controllers to the database
TraceVision® software is compatible with any computer operating with Windows OS, and it runs smoothly even in machines with few resources.
