miniPond 3P: Approved Multifunctional Process Weighing controller
Specifically developed for process automation, the miniPond 3P weighing controller performs the necessary functions for verifiable weight measurement, dosing and totalization for automatic scales in industrial processes. The integrated time-optimized dosing process relieves the higher-level control system and thus enables more accurate and faster operation.
The 3 available operating modes for automated weight registration, one-component dosing or filling and for discontinuous totalization of bulk materials in railcars, trucks or ships are supplemented by selectable dosing settings for filling and dispensing processes. In addition, there are practical automatic functions for zeroing or taring, for free-fall compensation and for checkweighing with tolerance evaluation.
The miniPond 3P controller offers numerous customization possibilities for different tasks and, thanks to its sophisticated control algorithms, is able to flexibly adapt to changes in the product properties, such as material density or flow behavior, during the filling process. Digital filters for optimum processing of the weighing signals and proven, powerful evaluation algorithms ensure maximum measuring accuracy, even under difficult conditions.
During operation, the miniPond 3P weighing controller automatically monitors a number of process parameters which help to optimize the filling system. The miniPond 3P controller provides high repeat accuracy also for goods with critical filling characteristics – especially as disturbing influences are reliably suppressed, e.g. in the case of process fluctuations or switching operations.
The integrated alibi memory documents the last 84,000 filling results and meets the requirement for traceability of legal-for-trade weight values when used in the subsequent EDP system.
Easy link-up to a PLC or control system with full access to functions, data and parameters via fieldbus. In addition, monitoring and operation are also possible via the local terminal or the integrated web server.
