Corona Performance Monitoring System | MonTEC

MonTEC is an advanced system for Tantec’s corona treaters and plasma treaters that monitors the discharge performance from each individual treatment electrode.

A MonTEC system employs 8-channel transmitter modules powered by the applied high-voltage to the treatment electrodes, transmitting discharge data to the integrated 8-channel receiver modules. An essential part of the system is a microprocessor managing all received data from the electrodes with datatransfer to a main machine control, i.e. a PLC-unit or computer.

Once the monitoring system is calibrated with the dedicated electrode system consisting of single or multiple electrodes, a process window can easily be programmed and displayed with minimum and maximum discharge values for each individual electrode.

The MonTEC provides real time data and offers full control and traceability of treatment parameters. The measured data is easily transferred to a main PLC or computer using the RS232/RS485 interface.
