AMSWeb Tally HMI

AMSWeb Tally

The AMSWeb Tally is an easy-to-use, full-featured lumber sorter management system that combines the respective strengths of the ControlLogix PLC and a Windows computer. The PLC stores the current run-time parameters and performs critical functions while long-term data storage and data-serving functions are performed by the AMSWeb Tally computer.

Using the familiar webpage format, the AMSWeb Tally provides users with local and remote access to the reporting system. Because a standard web browser such as Internet Explorer is used to access the system, additional clients can be located in the sorter/stacker area, remotely in a supervisor's office, or in a corporate head office; all without expensive software costs.
