ACTIVE ARC

ELECTRODE CONTROL SYSTEM

ActiveARC is the solution which BM Automation offers for the adjustment and automated management of arc furnaces for steel manufacture jobs. ActiveARC is an integrating system of digital control of the regulating parameters of the electric furnace, so as to obtain the best compromise between power consumption and production. Actually, the advanced control algorithms used would at the same time permit reducing electrode consumption and the least amount of time for casting. The system is complete with advanced level 2 management of the process, in such manner as to calculate all the required parameters to operate the oven in full autonomy, starting from adding ferro-alloys, the optimum set-up of the tap-changer and all parameters involved in the casting process.
