PMC-D/PMC-D20

Overview

The intrinsically safe Cat® PMC-D control is used on shearer or plow faces to provide high level AFC (armed face conveyor) and plow automation. Each Drive unit needs to be equipped with one PMC-D control unit and equivalent I/O to operate the CST drives or UEL gearbox functions. In such a system a Cat PMC-V provides the Human Machine Interface (HMI) to interfere with the PMC-D controls to operate manual mode, visualize and change parameters and show actual process values. Within a PMC-D system minimum one and typically up to 3 PMC-Vs are in equal operation. The PMC-D system can control extremely sensitive the speed and torque of highly powered AFC CST drive. Using Profibus network all PMC-Ds and PMC-Vs in a system could exchange process data over long distances with high frequency.
