Siemens PLC - Setting Parameters

Each Vmax system is tested and checked at the factory prior to shipment to ensure trouble-free operation. In the unlikely event you encounter a problem, we recommend that you consult with your local distributor for parts/service. Remember, when calling for service, parts or system information, always have the pump or system model number and serial number ready.

DEKKER uses the Siemens LOGO! programmable logic controller to perform several functions, such as turning pumps on and off based on feedback from a vacuum transducer, alternating the lead/lag pumps in a multiplex vacuum system, or providing minimum run time to protect pump motors from frequent starts (10-minute minimum run time is typical).

When the system is running, the normal screen should be the Value screen.
