Introducing TopDry Terminal, bringing increased control and access to TopDry settings and historical data. TopDry Terminal is the standard control for AutoFlow and AutoBatch TopDrys, and is available as an option on Manual Batch TopDrys.
Utilizing the same top of the line, Allen Bradley CompactLogix PLC used in our Zimmerman Tower Dryers, the TopDry Terminal features an easy-to-read, large color touch-screen. WatchDog remote monitoring and control is standard for the first time on TopDry with the TopDry Terminal (owner supplied internet connection required). The system uses advanced graphics and animation to give a visual representation of the TopDry’s operation, and these same animations are also used remotely via WatchDog.
The TopDry Terminal is completely automated with full control over the fill system, fan(s), heater(s) and dump chutes with monitoring and safety equipment in place. It can be controlled by straight-time, grain temperature using four electronic temperature sensors or a combination of both. With the microprocessor-based AutoFlow System, you can control two fans and heaters, two separate load augers and two aeration fans. The system will indicate the cause of any malfunction and automatically shut down.
