Floveyor manufactures grain transport equipment. ICON Technologies provided Floveyor with the control interface to a custom built machine used in the manufacture of their grain lift systems.
The control interface was based on the National Instruments Compact FieldPoint PAC platform. It provided the HMI to the complete system, acted as supervisory controller to a PLC hydraulic controller, acquired and logged high precision position data from a Sick position sensor, and generated unit test reports for each manufactured system.
