PLC Plant Control Panel

The Perry PLC Plant Control Panel is an advanced piece of technology that gives the drier operator a clear, visual representation of the machines and routes, along with offering advanced diagnostic capabilities & remote control, when the panel is connected to the internet.

You can upgrade a PLC Drier Control Panel to become a full PLC Plant Control Panel, which will allow the control panel to control an entire plant, including machines by other manufacturers.

The Perry PLC Drier Control Panel comes as standard with both the Perry Savannah Series Continuous Mix Flow Driers & the Perry Belt Drier. The difference between the two panels being the visual representation of the drier & products available in the crop set-up pages.
