Siemens presents new version of Braumat process control system  (Company news)

Picture: Siemens is presenting its new version 8.0 of the Braumat brewery process control system at the BrauBeviale in Nuremberg

- New version 8.0 facilitates integration of Simatic S7-1500 controller as well as mixed operation with Simatic S7-400 controller
- Improved production and batch transparency with new MES reporting options
- Enhanced safety concept with new functions
- Lean Edition for micro breweries and craft brewers

Siemens is presenting a new version of the Braumat brewery process control system at the BrauBeviale in Nuremberg: The latest version 8.0 is based on the Simatic S7-1500 controller and has been optimized in the areas of reporting, weighing systems and security. Already installed Simatic S7-400 controllers can still be used, including in mixed operation. Existing Braumat installations can be expanded or modernized with Simatic S7-1500 controller. Production downtimes caused by new installations are thus avoided.

In order to enhance the reporting options, a batch report with a basic choice of process parameters has been integrated. Users can now create reports with the help of MS Excel. Braumat V8.0 is also now connected to the established PMQuality option. This means that MES (Manufacturing Execution System) and MIS (Management Information System) functions are now available for calculating KPIs (Key Performance Indicators) such as plant availability. In the new version, storage location management is integrated together with dosage management in the recipe system, enabling the efficient and flexible automation of mixing processes. Recipes are automatically adjusted according to storage location availability and the quantity specifications of the batches to be produced. High-precision, self-optimizing weighing operations are fully automated with the integrated Siwarex weighing system. The Braumat V8.0 process control system continuously checks recipes and quantities for the individual production processes, thus reducing overdoses of malt, hops and diatomaceous earth. A combination of password protected Simatic S7-1500 controllers, encrypted communication on the terminal bus as well as extended user management and company ID registration via an RFID card reader increases security during the production sequences.

New Braumat V8.0 is available in both a standard and lean edition: With Braumat Lean, micro breweries and craft brewers can benefit from process automation from just a quantity of four units and one Simatic Open Controller. This can be expanded up to 40 units as required. Braumat Lean can also be operated as a compact, single user station or for remote areas of large breweries, such as laboratories. With the Standard edition, it is possible to create complex plant structures with redundant client-server features and server visualization. The Lean Edition of Braumat V8.0 can be expanded to the Standard Edition. After just a few days of training, users are able to configure new Braumat plants. For other food and beverage sectors such as dairies, cheese factories or soft drinks, the Sistar version 8.0 process control system is available.

As a long-term partner in the international brewing and beverages industries, Siemens is demonstrating at this year's BrauBeviale being held in Nuremberg from November 12 through 14 how its innovative brewery automation processes enable the first step into digitalization. Visitors to booth 419 in hall 7 can experience the path to digitalization themselves: Exhibits stretch from the lean version of the Braumat process control system for the automation of micro breweries, to a standard Braumat system with a Manufacturing Operation Management (MOM) solution and energy management, to cutting-edge technologies such as cloud and edge computing.

Cost-effective, compact level transmitter with intelligent processing for improved accuracy  (Company news)

- Improved accuracy and repeatability
- Increased asset utilization and decreased operational waste
- Wide range of applications in environmental, chemical, and food and beverage industries
- Hart 7 communications

Sitrans Probe LU240's four-button user interface or remote configuration with Simatic PDM ensures fast and easy setup. Operators will save time and maintenance costs with Sitrans Probe LU240's transparent lid: in manual observations, users can observe values directly instead of by removing the device's lid. For those applications requiring process temperature data, Sitrans Probe LU240 now gives users both level and temperature readings. The device is also battery and solar-power friendly due to a low start-up current of 3.55 mA and minimum 10.5-volt operation.

In dirty applications or those with buildup, the transmitter's maintenance-free active face technology keeps the sensor clean and is also unaffected by wind, rain, snow or temperature changes. And for rugged applications in harsh environments, it is IP68 fully potted and encapsulated with a PVDF sensor resistant to corrosion, chemicals, and extreme shock.

Digitalization integrates critical field data into a plant's entire operations, unlocking new opportunities to analyze processes and identify areas for improvement. By connecting Sitrans Probe LU240 to a control system, operators can monitor level measurements from the comfort of the control room or on the go using a solution from the suit of Siemens automation or remote products.
