miniPond 3C: Approved Checkweighing Controller
The miniPond 3C weighing controller provides the necessary functions for trade-approved weight determination in automatic checkweighers. The high internal resolution, processing speed and signal filtering ensure fast and accurate measurements. With the registration of the product weight, it is assigned to one of five tolerance zones.
The weighing electronics control the complete checkweighing process. Weighing can be started either via a position sensor or control signal, for example from a light barrier, or via a weight threshold. Further process steps, such as tolerance signaling or rejection in case of underweight or overweight, can be controlled by the configurable digital I/Os.
Presets for different articles and check weights can be conveniently selected from 100 parameter sets. The controller offers a totalizing function and counter, logging of actual weights as well as monitoring and statistical functions.
Digital filters for optimum processing of the weighing signals and proven, powerful evaluation algorithms ensure maximum measuring accuracy, even under difficult conditions. The automatic stability detection ensures that only correct weight values are registered and stored.
The versatile miniPond 3C controller can be used stand-alone or networked and can be customized to the specific task at hand through parameter settings. Clear, application-oriented menus and dialogs allow intuitive operation. The integrated web server and effective diagnostic tools facilitate commissioning, parameterization, remote access and remote maintenance via a network. Easy link-up to a PLC or control system with full access to functions, data and parameters via fieldbus.
