Configuration and function expansion



The new generation of graphical interface applies data visualization design to observe and track data changes in fermentation experiments in real time. The dynamic parameters and status graphics that users are most concerned about are comprehensively updated and upgraded. Users do not need to enter the secondary interface. They only need to observe the digital dial to understand the key data of the fermentation process at a glance. At the same time, animation and dynamic demonstration of the working status of the tank are carried out to increase interactivity and intuitiveness. Through the system interface, users can accurately grasp the important parameters and status of experimental work, so as to quickly perform subsequent operations.

  • Important data dial display: Animated display of fermentation status such as stirring, heating, aeration, etc., allowing users to understand at a glance.
  • PV/SP values displayed on the same screen: Users can easily view and compare PV/SP values without switching screens back and forth.
  • Data export function: Alarm, correlation, audit, curve and other data can be exported to facilitate users to conduct data analysis and recording: supports setting administrator permissions to ensure data security. Supports switching between Chinese and English to meet the needs of different users.
  • One-button operation: One-button fermentation, one-button sterilization and tank lid lifting system and other functions simplify the operation process and improve user experience.
  • Customized design of parallel control system: supports arbitrary switching of multi-tank tanks, stage tanks, and single tanks, making it convenient for users to control with one click
