Glass Cutting and Manufacturing

As the tools and processes to produce specialized glass products have become more complex, the incorporation of different manufacturing products and specialized machinery requires a comprehensive I/O solution. Glass cutting and glass manufacturing companies must have a partner like Sealevel, with decades of experience and proven success in I/O product development and manufacturing.

I/O Solutions for Glass Cutting and
Glass Manufacturing

Glass and glass components make up much of the modern world. Because of its ubiquity, it is easy to overlook the unique properties of glass. These properties – including its relative strength, transparency, scratch resistance, and its chemical resistance – make glass an excellent material for both modern construction and increasingly sophisticated applications. As applications have become more complex, glass cutting and manufacturing tools and processes have become more intricate, often requiring a wide variety of technologies. This necessitates configurable I/O, especially when upgrading or adding components to existing installations. For more than 35 years, Sealevel has developed and manufactured serial communications, digital I/O, and rugged computing products that are not only trusted not only by manufacturing companies, but by military contractors, commercial customers, and OEMs across a wide variety of industries.

Robust I/O Solutions

Sealevel offers digital and analog I/O products and data acquisition devices with optically isolated inputs, Reed and Form C relay outputs, TTL interfaces to solid-state relays, and A/D and D/A functionality. Our I/O solutions support configurations from a few inputs to inputs across an entire glass fabrication network.

Embedded Computing

Designed for I/O-intensive applications, our industrial computerstouch panel PCs and COM Express solutions offer unmatched computing power combined with configurability. The HazPAC 10 Rugged Panel PC has a NEMA 4/IP64 rating protection from sprayed liquids including rain, snow, splashes, hose downs, and other pressurized water streams.

Serial I/O Solutions

Sealevel synchronous and asynchronous serial adapters are trusted for commercial applications where reliable, high-speed communications are required – especially in CNC glass cutting and grinding machinery. Solutions are available in traditional bus-based form factors or easy-to-use USB and Ethernet protocols.

Sealevel Expertise

Specialized glass products have rapidly increased in demand. The complexity of the processes and specialized machinery used to manufacture these products has increased at nearly the same rate. Incorporating new technologies and updating existing glass manufacturing and cutting facilities requires a comprehensive I/O solution.

Serial I/O

All Sealevel synchronous serial products are engineered with strict attention to timing to achieve the most reliable, high-speed communication possible, critical for process and quality control in glass manufacturing applications. Choose from a variety of RS-232/422/485 multi-interface products that support HDLC/SDLC and other protocols. Our SeaLINK industrial Ethernet serial servers offer the easiest way to connect RS-232, RS-422, and RS-485 serial devices to your Ethernet network.

Digital & Analog I/O

Monitor and control real-world signals with any computer using Sealevel digital and analog I/O products – crucial for controlling all the disparate components of the glass cutting and manufacturing processes. Select from field-proven optically isolated inputs, Reed and Form C relay outputs, TTL interfaces to solid-state relays, A/D, and D/A functionality. Our digital and analog I/O products come in a wide variety of host connections: host via wireless, Ethernet, USB, RS-485, or RS-232.

Automation & Control

We got our start in automation and control more than 35 years ago. Our digital and analog I/O products allow you to precisely track and monitor many different real-world signals. Sealevel monitoring solutions provide real-time data for immediate action and collect historical information over time, furthering preventive maintenance goals and increasing the efficiency and longevity of the specialized machinery utilized in glass cutting and manufacturing.

Embedded Computing

Designed for I/O intensive applications, our industrial computers, touch panel PCs and COM Express solutions offer unmatched computing power combined with versatile configurability. Sealevel’s HazPAC 10 Rugged Panel PC features a 5-wire resistive touchscreen that is waterproof and impervious to flames, chemicals, and solvents. The surface is also abrasion and scratch-resistant, improving reliable performance in control and HMI applications.
