Thomas Engineering "Compu-Lab" Pill Coater Data Logger
AutoSoft Systems is pleased to announce the interface of its Process and Lab Information Management System [PLIMS], AutoData, with Thomas Engineering's Compu-Lab pill coating equipment. 
All Compu-Lab's are equipped with a 37 pin AmphenolŽ connector. Traditionally, this connector mated with a 12 channel strip chart recorder. 
AutoSoft's electronic enclosure replaces the strip chart recorder. The following parameters can be measured: 
Pan Load Delta-P       Hardware enclosure:         
Exhaust Dew Point      
Exhaust Temperature                      
Inlet Dew Point                        
Pan/Room Delta-P                        
FPM (CFM)                         
Inlet Temperature                       
Atom. Air Pressure                       
Solution Flow                      
Pan RPM                  
This NEMA 4 enclosure, custom designed and built by AutoSoft, seamlessly interfaces with Thomas Engineering's Compu-Lab equipment through the 37 pin Amphenol connector pictured in the upper left corner above. This enclosure is mounted within 10 feet ofthe Compu-Lab, and can be up to 5,000 feet away from the Windows XP Pro computer which displays results. Communication to the computer is via RS-485, and is a simple twisted pair unshielded cable. The enclosure is powered by 110 VAC 60 Hz standard U.S.A. electrical power. A standard 3 prong outlet is supplied (also pictured in the top left).                 
AutoData is a full-featured LIMS for small workgroups ( < 20 users). The data collected from the Compu-Lab can be fully integrated with other lab data for detailed analysis. AutoData readily exports user-defined subsets of the data to Microsoft's ExcelŽ. 
AutoData's interface with the Compu-Lab includes real-time strip chart recorders and a configuration screen that accommodates multiple configurations. 
AutoData's Data Logging Configuration Screen:                   
Here, the user enters the calibration of the 1-5 VDC signals generating from the CompuLab. The exact operation of this screen is described in more detail in the AutoData operation manual..

On-screen Strip Chart Recorder: 
This is one of 9 strip chart recorders that can be displayed. The configuration of these charts is done using the Data Logging Configuration Screen described above.                     
The computer can be supplied by AutoSoft, or AutoSoft technicians can install AutoData on any Windows XP Pro computer with an open serial port. Laptop computers work very well for this application.
