Innovec Controls: leading quality equipment for process control

Industrial Process News is proud to feature Innovec Controls for its industry leading standards of quality and reliability across its entire range of instrumentation.

Established in 1987 by Rob Newman, Innovec Controls is an Australian designer and manufacturer of process control instruments and LED safety lighting products, which are known throughout the world for their high quality and unbeatable reliability. Using this leading technology, Innovec Controls is committed to its mission to increase customers’ productivity and add true value to the industry.

By providing reliable, accurate and user-friendly instruments, Innovec Controls offers outstanding solutions with application-based designs and ranks among the leading providers of innovative products for niche market segments, a position which is enhanced by the company’s strong reputation for quality products and competitive prices.

Since its inception, the company has grown impressively and expanded its customer base to include numerous industries across the globe. Operating in markets in Australia, North America, Scandinavia and Asia, Innovec Controls remains intent on expanding its reach even further, and has witnessed impressive advancements over the past year. “The last 12 months have been all about growing our export markets in the UK, India and the USA, and we have seen a sales growth of 40%,” said Rob. “In the future, we are planning to enhance our presence in Asia to expand our reach even further.”

The company supplies technology solutions to a vast range of customers, offering liquid batching and additive injection in explosion proof and standard housings, level measurements using ultrasound, and pressure sensors with communication using the mobile phone network to the cloud. Innovec Controls also manufactures LED safety lighting for Metro trains, and locomotives for freight haulage and trams.

As would be expected, Innovec Controls is committed to ensuring its customers can always trust its products. To guarantee this, the company maintains a rigid code of health and safety practices, having recently received updated ISO9001:2015 certification where we comply to this standard by an annual audit. The current certification lasts until June 2020 when our next audit will occur. “We always operate under this quality system, and our products are widely recognised for both their quality and their reliability,” explained Robert.

One of Innovec Controls’ particular ranges is its batch controllers and flow measurement, which includes products ranging from totalisers with an integral printer, which are used in truck mounted dispensing systems, to the IBS and IBL batch controllers, which are used for accurate control and two-stage batching in liquid transfer or repetitive filling of containers on a production line. These can interface to all industry standard flow sensors, be supplied in explosion proof or standard housings, and are user programmable, with digital or analogue inputs and relay or analogue outputs.

With a continuous programme of research, development and innovation, Innovec Controls will soon be releasing a new version of its IBS Batch Controller, which will feature numeric data entry. The IBS is an 85-265VAC or 12-40VDC powered batch controller for liquids, incorporating a Blue Graphical OLED display. It can be configured from the front panel to batch volumes ranging from 0.001 to 999,999.99 litres.

Another product of note is the IBLEXD Batch Controller, a fairly recent addition to Innovec Controls’ offering. The instrument can accept inputs from 0 to 1KHZ which is input type selectable for all the common sensor types from 20mV peak to peak.

The IBLEXD blends a 64 x 128 Mono Graphics (LCD) display with a fully integrated RGB (Red, Green and Blue) back light offering a wide viewing angle with a viewing distance of up to five metres. The panel switches at the front of the instrument are EXD approved with positive action. For rare emergency situations, the IBLEXD has a flawless backup plan to ensure that information is not lost. The instrument conveniently stores background running total in EEPROM memory during loss of power and incorporates a low flow alarm. The low flow alarm displays LF ERR if no pulses are received within a programmed period of time and the batch will be cancelled.

Innovec Controls maintains a consistent presence at trade shows throughout the world and attends a busy schedule of events including Sensors and Instruments in Birmingham, Stoc- Expo in Rotterdam, and Tank Storage Asia in Singapore. The company is currently renovating and upgrading its website, and the new version will be going live in mid-October.
