MiND: Digital Control for Industrial Processes

What is MiND and how it optimizes industrial processes

The Frigel Group has brought many innovative developments to its process cooling solutions for different industrial sectors: chemical, pharmaceutical, food, beverage, PET, automotive, etc.

All of its product lines now include full digital control technology, along with many enhancements to nearly all of its product categories.

MiND is an extraordinary product and its benefits are many. Since we introduced this innovative tool to our customers, we have seen a great impact on their productions, as they can now measure the efficiency and operational consumption of their systems.

Thanks to the data collected by MiND , our customers can easily identify inefficiencies in their cooling process and make adjustments or adaptations to maximize performance and minimize consumption. This is possible through a web-based interface, designed for customers, which gives them the ability to access MiND and view their Frigel and non-Frigel equipment, when communication is possible, at any time and from anywhere. any computer in the building or remotely. We all know that familiarity with your own process and daily performance is the key to your successful operation today. In fact, we have seen clients who were able to make a big difference to their bottom line after implementing MIND, as they finally had a better understanding of what is happening in their factories.

Advantages of MiND digital control

This digital integration platform, together with central HMI and dedicated monitoring software, enables remote access to all of our refrigeration systems . Remote management of all important parameters predicts and simplifies maintenance, allowing performance to be optimized  and proactively saving operating costs .

Main advantages

  • Maximize performance and minimize consumption
  • Proactively optimize the performance of each machine and/or device
  • Measure efficiency and operating consumption
  • Simplify and speed up service interventions, even remotely
  • Possibility of integrating the data collected with the company’s supervision systems.

Main features of MiND

  • Remote control and ability to change the settings and working parameters of all machines (in the case of Frigel units with native integration such as Microgel Digital, TDK and RSD-RSM).
  • MiND web-based interface Ability to share all data stored in MiND with other company monitoring systems via Modbus TCP/IP protocol 
  • All data and information from Frigel equipment stored in a local database 
  • Ability to access all data locally and remotely 
  • Real-time and historical operating parameters, alarms and event readings always available
  • Possibility to download data and graphics (JPG, PNG, SVG or XLSX and CSV) 
  • Opportunity to enable communications also with non-Frigel equipment such as power meters, Bowmeters and other sensors via Modbus TCP/IP protocol 
  • Possibility of implementing comparative analyzes of all stored data.

How your control panel works

The  Frigel Group  In the user interface, there is a dynamic dashboard for each Frigel machine / control system (Microgel, 3PR, Multistage, etc.), where it is possible to observe the status of the machine and the main working parameters updated in real time .

Logs with real-time temperature and pressure list display:
