Automated Weighing and Predictive Maintenance as Focus Topics of METTLER TOLEDO at POWTECH.
A new compact weight transmitter from METTLER TOLEDO saves space inside the control cabinet and provides full connectivity to PLC systems with high accuracy at an exceptional speed. New weigh modules from 220 kg to 90 tons offer predictive maintenance features and are easy to install.
METTLER TOLEDO GmbH, Nänikon April 2016 – METTLER TOLEDO is pleased to present at the Powtech Fair in Hall 1, Booth 529 the new ACT350 weight transmitter which is designed for the needs of machine builders. It provides 600 filtered-weight values per second without need for additional software filtering in the PLC program to eliminate vibrations. Fieldbus connectivity via Ethernet/IP, PROFINET RT or PROFIBUS is incorporated in a compact DIN-Rail unit saving cabinet space. That enables fast and precise filling, sorting and batching processes increasing throughput and profitability.
The SWB605 PowerMount™ weigh modules for capacities from 220 kg to 90 tons continuously monitor load cell performance, discovering variances before they impact productivity. This allows manufacturers to stay in control of processes and avoid mistakes before they cost money. Their POWERCELL® load cells have on-board microprocessors to adjust the weighing signal to compensate for environmental changes. Plug and play connectors directly at the load cells make installation fast and easy.
