PTIQ is the latest software innovation for utilising Plasma Technology systems. Introduced to replace the PCx series of software applications, its modern design and powerful feature-set greatly improves the user/ownership experience, and the all-new architecture provides a solid foundation for all future development. As support (coverage) for systems/hardware is increased, and new functionality is added, PTIQ will increasingly represent a core value proposition of Plasma Technology products.
NOTE: We are experiencing a bug issue with the PTIQ software. This issue is limited to a very specific type of recipe editing, so most customers will not encounter the issue. Please click here to help you debug the issue.

We are experiencing a bug issue that has been identified with the PTIQ control software. The issue affects all versions of PTIQ up to and including 2021.13.02. This issue is limited to a very specific type of recipe editing (using sub-steps within a recipe step) so most customers will not encounter the issue. Please click here to help you debug the issue.
What are the hardware upgrades that we need to have to be able to upgrade to PTIQ?
This will be evaluated by case-by-case basis. Certain system types, particularly more recent ones, are more likely to be supported without additional development. Older system types may lack support for specific components, while other may not be supported entirely (thus replacement is worth consideration).
In addition to component level support, X20 PLCs (1584 or later) are also required, as is 8GB of PC memory and a 1080p display.
With existing PC4500 software, LogViewer log files can be viewed on another PC if manually transferred to another PC. It would useful if remote users could more easily access data files and analyse it. What will the new software offer?
We will soon be packaging the Datalog viewer as a standalone product so that it may be installed on a separate PC. We are looking to make the process of transferring files much easier.
You'll find out about the benefits of upgrading to PTIQ and what it can do for you.
