Buttons on the panel and their usages

Start
This button is for starting the process and set the cylinder at the initial state.

Emergency stop
The process of the machine can be stopped by pressing the emergency stop under malfunction or improper manner by operators to avoid any incident and injury. Once the button is pressed, the machine must be reset by pressing the reset button.

Reset Button
To guarantee the cylinder satisfying the initial condition and ready to start the process, the reset button will set the cylinder to the desired state.

Mode selector
To switch to manual in case of the failure of the GOT or by operator preference, a mode selector is designed on the panel to switch the machine from GOT mode to manual mode, vice versa.

Manual cycle setter
To set the number of cycle manually in case of breakdown of GOT, a setter is designed. By counting the number of times of the setter pressed, the number of cycle is set to the PLC.

Manual timer selector
In the manual mode, the operator can only select the filling time as 5 seconds or 10 seconds by a switch.
