Sedomat 5500+

Advanced touch screen controller with modular I/O

The new Sedomat 5500+ gives a better user experience by offering a modern design and user-friendly interface. Now being water-proof to IP67, it guarantees high quality and reliability for rugged environments. Having RFID support, it offers new possibilities in data acquisition.   

The Sedomat 5500+ is the most powerful instrument in the Sedomat controller family. With a large and easy to use touch screen the Sedomat 5500+ offers high performance ideally suited for the automation of complex dyeing machines. Active parallel functions are virtually unlimited, reducing process time through optimized control of machine parts such as tanks and dosing stations.

The ideal choice for a manufacturing environment, internet web browser technology running on the Windows CE operating system means the Sedomat 5500+ can be controlled remotely from any PC on the factory network. Standard interfaces including Ethernet and USB make physical connection easy and simple.

The modular I/O of the Sedomat 5500+ is easily configured match the exact requirements of all types of dyeing machine (yarn, fabric, jigger, dryer, etc.).

Open connectivity - standard protocols


  • 32 hours/day:
    By simultaneously executing two batches and several functions, the next batch can be prepared, while the current batch is still active.
  • Connection to the SedoMaster central management system.
  • Integration with chemical dispensing and automation of dye kitchen.
  • Master/slave-operation.
  • Storage of a virtually unlimited number of dyeing programs.
  • Logging of temperature curve, functions, alarms, etc. Visualization of process information on Sedomat 5500+ or on a remote PC.
  • Support of different languages and character sets, e.g. Chinese.
  • Linear, progressive and degressive dosing curves.
  • Control of temperature, speed, pH, flow, pressure, etc.
