Toscotec has launched a new generation design of its Distributed Control System TT Brain DCS. The product reportedly offers innovative functions and add-on customized tools. Numerous tissue producers are already efficiently operating their tissue machines through this upgraded DCS, says the company.

TT Brain DCS is an open system developed on standard Advanced Process Libraries (APL) by Siemens. Based on specific customer requests, Toscotec has designed several additional customized functions that have been successfully integrated into the DCS, including tracing systems for jumbo and rewound rolls and recipe management systems.

Apart from machine operators, Toscotec’s new DCS offers useful functions to various users, including maintenance managers and technicians, process engineers, energy managers, production engineers, etc.


TT Brain DCS integrates with Voith’s QCS e BTG Group’s dataPARC, and it can also easily exchange data with the paper mill’s Manufacturing Execution Systems (MES) and Enterprise Resource Planning system (ERP).

Based on customer feedback and extensive in-field experience, Toscotec developed a forward-thinking message management system that shows only messages (including warnings and alarms) that operators need to view to be able to diagnose the issue at hand. TT Brain DCS offers alarm filtering points for every system or piece of equipment that enables operators to instantly understand problems. Diagnostics on the DCS have never been this easy. Instead of sorting through hundreds of messages to retrace the root cause of the problem, operators can now quickly filter by the machine-affected area and are assisted by the underpinning optimized logics that generate messages.
