Data Acquisition and Management System
In response to growing customer requests for more secure and consistent reporting, Sani-Matic developed a data acquisition and management system called SaniTrend.
SaniTrend provides a means of storing, retrieving and printing recipe data for Clean-In-Place (CIP) Systems, as well as other types of cleaning systems controlled by a PLC. It serves the food and beverage industries and complies with the Pasteurized Milk Ordinance, allowing it to be a legal replacement for circular chart recorders.
The SaniTrend program communicates with the CIP control system and collects recipe data, including events, cycle and operator information, analog data, and alarms. It does not communicate any data back to the CIP control system, except verification that the data acquisition system is active during CIP.
The system also provides easy access to the CIP recipe data generated. The data collected is recorded as a PDF to be stored on a PC computer or laptop. The graphic printout can be set up to print automatically at the end of each CIP cycle, or store the data electronically for reprinting on demand later.
