AMIGA Software to control machinery using the MDR Control Interface protocol.The software consists of an operating system which is configured by a number of text files for easy maintenance.

The system operates on the principle of "distributed processing" - the Intelligent Control interfaces are programmed to carry out their respective functions and the CPU (the Amiga) operates in a supervisory manner. This allows high speeds locally enabling each input channel of the system to sense and independently operate functions at up to 2000 changes of state per second.

The supervisory software can be set to display fault diagrams/pictures indicating the problem and user defined information in the event that an action does not take place in the specified time. Three stage emergency stop/start procedures and remote control facility.

This software has been refined and in use in continuous industrial applications since 1989 and is thus well "tried and tested".

The software may be user configured, alternatively MDR offer a programming service. Please email us with your application.
