New 7197PCP-DIN-NX Controller Improves Operational Efficiency by Allowing Centralized Control of Volumetric Dispensing Pumps
This network capable progressive cavity pump controller provides Ethernet control with TCP/IP protocol for Smart Factory integration.
Nordson EFD, a Nordson company (NASDAQ: NDSN) and leading precision fluid dispensing systems manufacturer, introduces the 7197PCP-DIN-NX controller for 797PCP progressive cavity pumps. This controller provides Ethernet connection with Transmission Control Protocol / Internet Protocol (TCP/IP) for Smart Factory and Industry 4.0 manufacturing integration.

“This is enabling technology that allows our customers to be more lean, more efficient, more productive and more versatile as we prepare to enter fourth industrial revolution,” said Claude Bergeron, Senior Product Line Manager, Nordson EFD. “By helping manufacturers prepare, we ensure they won’t get left behind as Smart Factories transfer significant value to end users.”
The 7197PCP-DIN-NX controller allows operators to control all volumetric dispensing parameters directly from a Programmable Logic Controller (PLC) or other manufacturing plant controller. This saves time by allowing the operator to program multiple fluid dispensing controllers from a centralized location and change dispensing parameters “on the fly” at any point.
Through the PLC, operators can also record and download process feedback and verify rotor movement, which essentially tells the operator that the progressive cavity pump is running. This can help improve process control. For example, if the pumps stop running, the operator can troubleshoot before the interruption greatly impacts productivity.
The controller’s small size and design for mounting on DIN rails inside machine cabinets maximizes working space on automated production lines.
Its Line, Volume, Weight, and Timed dispense modes provide versatility for a wide range of assembly steps that may require applying fluids, such as adhesives, coatings, gap fillers, sealants, and more, to a part.
When paired with 797PCP volumetric dispensing pumps for one-component or two-component fluids, the system delivers fluid volume accuracy and repeatability at ± 1%. This gives manufacturers assurance that the volume they need to dispense is applied within the tolerance they need, every time.
