Fresenius Medical Care prefers the external stand
alone control-technology to keep a maximum of
flexibility with the exchange of the mould. This is the
reason why only stackable controllers MCS12+ are working since 2000. A long term temperature analysis with the visualisation program FECON helps to observe and optimise the process. Fresenius Medical Care uses the software PocketParacon from FELLER ENGINEERING on PDAs with Bluetooth technology. This is a fast and economical way to manage the recipes, download and upload temperature- and parameter-settings.
