KIC Footprint 1-Click Oven Monitoring Description:

1-Click Oven Monitoring

The Footprint concept

  • The alternative to frequent profiling and thermal process windows is to monitor the machine drift
  • The Footprint system monitors the oven temperature variations along the conveyor
  • Conveyor speed is also measured in real-time
  • The key decision is to determine allowable versus excessive drift
  • The Footprint can make that decision for you by automatically measuring the acceptable drift, and only alert the user when the conditions reach danger level
  • Users can also select the basic monitoring mode with no alarms. The Footprint will simply record and display the changing conditions in the oven

Selectable programming modes for oven monitoring and drift limits

1. 1-Click Programming

  •  a. 1-click to start oven monitoring without alarms
  •  b. 1-click to start oven monitoring with default alarm setup. In this mode the software looks at the oven drift the recent period of time and sets the alarm accordingly

2. Load the settings of a previous monitoring run
3. Advanced programming

  • The user can select upper and lower limits to drift for individual TC sensors and conveyor speed

Monitoring function

1. Real-time oven temperature and conveyor speed variations are displayed on the screen. This ‘video’ can be stored for record keeping and it can be retrieved at any time
2. The oven drift is displayed graphically for each temperature sensor and for the speed sensor with the following legend:

  • a. Red line denotes the temperature zero point. This is the actual temperature that the sensor measured when the monitoring program was started
  • b. Gray line with green dot shows the current temperature
  • c. Gray shaded area depicts how the temperature has drifted above and below the zero point since monitoring started. No temperature was measured above or below the gray shaded area
