FTSW100 is a complete software solution for spectrometer based process monitoring and control.
FTSW100 performs fully automated acquisition, analysis, I/O control, and reporting of analytical results related to a process stream. The analysis of components within a process stream is accomplished by chemometric analysis of infrared data acquired from ABB FT-IR and FT-NIR spectrometers. The data for status and component concentration is relayed to a local display and/or to an external control system or controller via I/O interface supporting standard protocols such as: OPC, ModBus RTU (slave), ModBus TCP (client and server), CanOpen.
The modular architecture for the FTSW100 Process Software provides a solid robust foundation for critical 24/7 analytical needs. The configuration is done specifically for an intended application with acquisition, analysis, sequence, and I/O interface defined. The AppServer is the core to FTSW100 with integration to the configuration and results databases, user console interface, FT-IR or FT-NIR spectrometer, and I/O interface.
