Give a clear weight message to your pump, valve or gate using hysteresis on your setpoints

Give a clear weight message to your pump, valve or gate using hysteresis on your setpoints

Release date: 22 Jan 14

 Without a hystersis setting a weight can be just over or under the setpoint causing it to trigger. If the setpoint is connected to a pump, valve or gate, as the weight fluctuates the output will cause the attached device on turn on and off repeatedly - this can burn out devices, cause overfills or stop a process from stablising and at worst be a safety hazard.

Great news! Both the R400 and R300 series indicators support hysteresis on the set points. It defines the amount of weight required for an active setpoint to become inactive again. For an OVER setpoint it will be the amount the weight must fall below the target to turn off. For an UNDER setpoint it will be the amount of weight over the target that is required for the active output to turn off.
