Automated control over all processes with SISTAR

SISTAR control system enables fast, fully scalable and at the same time simple and reliable process automation for the food and beverage industry. The standard edition of SISTAR is used up to the largest food and beverage production facilities at globally distributed locations. SISTAR as Lean Edition fits perfectly for smaller applications and operations, e.g. small dairies, cheese dairies, bakeries, beverage or animal feed producers.

Grows in step with your production requirements

The easy, seamless scalability of SISTAR makes tasks such as recipe control, mixing, dosing, material management, and reporting much simpler. Starting with low-cost entry into the world of process automation, you can expand to the full SISTAR system range that suits your needs.

Fast reports and MES/MOM integration

Built-in batch reports and other ad hoc reports are providing the needed transparency for an efficient production. Additionally, the PM-ADDON PM-QUALITY enables online generation of reports with easy operations on demand.

Several connectivity options like SQL adapter or OPC UA are used for a seamless integration of the OPcenter execution system to use MES/MOM functionalities.

Excellent investment in security and long-term availability

SISTAR supports the new SIMATIC S7-1500 controller family. SISTAR also enables maximum plant availability and productivity, since SISTAR and Windows operating system updates can be performed during live operation without interrupting the production process. An expansion of systems with installed SIMATIC S7-400 controller is of course possible.

Respond faster to new demands with ease

The powerful, scalable, and easy-to-manage SISTAR process control system enables end-to-end automation of recipe-controlled processes. That makes tasks such as recipe control, dosing, material management, and reporting a whole lot simpler. That means companies can achieve the flexibility needed to produce the growing number of seasonal and personalized products efficiently.

Fully automated material transfers

SISTAR uses Route Control for fully automated material transfer including the needed navigation. Besides the material movement Route Control is ideal for efficient clean-in-place operations.

Maximum performance for the smallest businesses

SISTAR Lean from Siemens is the world’s smallest complete process automation system, which is ideal for small foodstuff plants or sections of plant capable of being integrated into the overall system at any time.

It uses the SIMATIC ET 200SP open controller or an industrial PC, and can be expanded from four to a maximum of 40 units as required. SISTAR Lean is limited to one controller, but otherwise offers the same functions as the standard SISTAR system.
