Upgrade to 4th Gen SmartBlend™ Technology
The Conair SmartBlendTM SB-1 was a very innovative control at the time of its release nearly 25 years ago. It was a color touch screen control on a blender, that held 50 recipes! Coming from thumbwheels and recipes hand-written on index cards, this was a huge advancement.
Over the last two decades, the SmartBlend control has drastically improved. The SB-4 control is far superior to its predecessors. The SB-4 is not only much more reliable, it can store 3000 recipes, and 4000 materials, making changing processes quick and simple.
Simple, more versatile control
The SB-4 control is intuitive, easy to set up, operate and troubleshoot. All setpoints are displayed simultaneously. You just enter the percentages on the blender touchscreen control and the blender does the rest. The system automatically weighs the recipe ingredients in the proper sequence and maintains the correct blend relationship.
Store up to 30X the recipes in one control
Create and assign up to 3,000 easy-to-recall recipes and 4,000 materials with custom alpha-numeric IDs while the SB-1 control can only store 50-100 recipes. SB-4 will report resin usage data to a file on a PC or a USB flash drive. With SQL Reporting Capability the SB-4 control has the ability to collect each blender’s batch, resin usage (by name or recipe), and generate consolidated summary reports of this information across all blenders on the system.
Alarm storage and recall
Alarms are meaningful, with helpful messages to keep the blending operation running trouble-free. The SB-4 tracks up to 100 events and reports alarm time and error type, and are set according to user-defined parameters.
