REMOTE MONITORING OF CO-FIRING FURNACES
This article deals with the software and hardware design of a measurement and logging system for two older co-firing furnaces PEO 601 and PEO 602, which are still in use at the Department of Technologies in Electronics and which need to be monitored remotely. The furnaces from the technological point of view matches the requirements of the laboratory experiments and technological processes provided at the department, but we need the ability to monitor and log the actual temperature in them, as well as to check, if the temperature during the co-firing process was in correspondence with the defined profile of it.
