Operator control and monitoring of laboratory systems with the IPC327E
There are many individual processes in the laboratory that must be continuously monitored, controlled and recorded. Because such an environment often has little space for a commercially available computer, smaller models are often used. Because laboratories often have special ambient conditions and processes must often work reliably over a long period of time, the computers are also subject to special requirements. The SIMATIC IPC327E is perfectly suited for such an environment.

You can use this application example for a large variety of tasks in the laboratory.
Some examples for the possible uses:
- Monitoring laboratory processes
- Visualization of process values
- Monitoring and controlling experiments
- Applications with multiple devices simultaneously
How does it work?
In this application example, the IPC327E is used to monitor and control six bioreactors simultaneously. Software is installed on the IPC that is responsible for visualization and control; (example: OD, pH value and temperature). The visualization can be navigated and setpoints can be changed by means of USB input devices; the IPC saves the continuously recorded test data on a server with an integrated database for long-term storage.
You need the following components to implement the application example.
