The sensors are compact, robust and feature state-of-the-art technology. They include a smart sensor with comprehensive diagnostic functions and provide easy access for maintenance and system extension. The modular and proven automation platform ComCore rounds off the scope of supply. ComCore allows an easy integration of the QCS into the customer’s automation system, providing clear information and easy access to papermakers.
