Weld Central® Controller

Weld Central® Controller

Available soon! The Weld Central® is a Process Optimization System that monitors and tracks key (time-stamped) process variables, including current, voltage, wire feed speed, gas flow & feed motor current. This information can be utilized for both process optimization and determining the weld cell OEE (Overall Equipment Effectiveness). Combined with the Wizard View® software, the Weld Central® is the ultimate weld cell performance monitoring system! Controller includes Wizard View® Software Package (1 license per controller).

Weld Central® & Wizard View® Features:

  • Monitor robotic or semi-automatic weld cells through a PC or mobile device using the Wizard View® software, where collected data can be viewed, charted & exported in a user friendly web browser interface
  • Intuitive dashboard displays all welding data in an interactive chart and shows overview of the total number of welds, wire usage, gas usage, power usage & arc on time for a selected time frame
  • Equipment agnostic – utilizes sensors compatible with all brands of wire feeders and power sources
  • More than just a data acquisition system – connect to a PLC or process controller to prevent costly weld quality issues and trigger alerts for weld faults or when wire or gas is low
  • Data may be tracked for each weld and assembly, and may also be exported to a CSV file
  • Four Active Outputs that can activate an alarm or stop the welding process through the PLC:
    • Arc Stability: Triggered when voltage, amperage, wire feed or gas flow exceed user defined thresholds
    • Weld Quality: Triggered when voltage, amperage, wire feed & gas flow meet user-defined limits
    • Assembly Passed: Triggered if data from all welds is within weld ID and assembly parameters
    • Assembly Failed: Triggered when data does not meet the user-defined parameters for an assembly
  • Three Active Inputs for resetting outputs, reset for new wire drum & reset for new gas canister (if applicable)
  • Internal memory on controller stores up to 4,000 weld summaries
