Plastic Injection Molding Machine Temperature Faceplate

Name: PlasticInjTempFaceplate_01.sym

Range (if applicable): 0-1000 (maybe higher)

Description:

This symbol is a temperature face plate used for plastic injection molding machines. Possibly used in extrusion machines also.

It has the unique feature of changing the background of the entire face depending on the alarm condition. Use multiple copies of this symbol to show many zones or heaters.

Notes:

  1. These are made of 100% native InduSoft Web Studio objects, no pictures.

  2. This symbol was created primarily for use on a PC running on a desktop or server operating system, but with some slight modifications, can be made to look great on Embedded Operating Systems. You will should have “Enable Enhanced Graphics” turned on in the Project-Viewer settings.

Ideas for improvement:

  1. Alternative color backgrounds

  2. Add a “Standby Set Point”

  3. Show the range of upper and lower limits

Here’s how to use this symbol:
Unzip and copy the .sym file into your Symbol folder of where InduSoft Web Studio is installed. This is usually “C:\Program Files (x86)\InduSoft Web Studio v7.1\Symbol” or similar. Either create a new folder or copy it into an existing one, such as “PlasticInjection”.
