zenon in Food & Beverage - Your Individual Recipe for Efficient Production and Control


The HMI/SCADA system zenon by COPA-DATA is designed to implement even the most comprehensive specifications of the Food & Beverage industry - such as the Weihenstephan standard, the FDA 21 CFR Part11 regulation or the ISO 50001 standard - in an effective and secure way. Documentation, archiving and access restrictions are guaranteed to be performed in accordance with current laws, without any additional efforts or third-party programs.

Simple handling, easy extensions and secure networking across heterogeneous equipment and multiple production lines increase the efficiency and security of engineering and maintenance tasks, and support users in achieving a better OEE.

In order to fulfil solution requirements beginning from the core of the Food & Beverage lot-based processes, we designed the Batch Control module in zenon which follows the ISA-88 standard approach. Batch Control in zenon supports the interfacing with existing or new equipment, based on the high connectivity enabled by zenon communication drivers.

The flexibility of the entire solution is made possible by the separation between the equipment and recipe procedural control. This means that the changes in a batch recipe can be realized without changes in the equipment automation and, in general, without any supplementary engineering. Due to integration into zenon Supervisor, Batch Control offers a varied of enriched solution functionalities.
