Control System of Sintering Furnace Based on Lonworks Net
This paper introduces a computer control network system which can control sintering process of four PTFE molding furnaces accurately. System in-out signals such as sintering temperature, on-off signals of dial motor and aeration motor were connected to Lonworks via net nodes, and network variables were used to construct a configuration and interlinkage between the net nodes. We chose a combined-control strategy in which On-off control or Fuzzy-control or Fuzzy-PID control strategy were selected automatically, so the needs to sintering time, cooling speed, steady-state precision etc were accurately achieved.
