The Rinstrum M020 range of Bluetooth accessories allow for short range RS232 to Bluetooth wireless connection. This can be between a Rinstrum indicator and remote display or an indicator working back to a PDA or PC. The devices are self discovering and no setup is required at the host device.

Application Scenarios:

  • Cable replacement  where a Bluetooth connection is used between an indicator and remote display or console.
  • Multi-roaming - where one master device may connect to different devices depending on which is in range.
  • Third party host  where the weight is to be sent to a device such as a PC or PDA.

R400 Series Weigh IN Weigh OUT Application Note

R400 Series Weigh IN Weigh OUT Application Note

Release date: 01 Oct 09

A K411 is used as a controller for a process that does a weigh in, using a front end loader, and weigh out at given time intervals. 

An example of this would be a bio gas application that uses a weigh in of various materials followed by a weigh out of the mixture on a timed basis into a fermenting silo.

Key Features used in this application

  • Batch out by time using the Real Time Clock
  • Multiple recipes
  • weigh in and weigh out using direction of fill on the stage
  • Multiple material support
  • Batch interlock
  • Over set pointing

Safety  Protect the batch out motor.  An over set point is used on the main vessel to ensure that the batch out will not proceed unless there is sufficient material. 

Safety  Emergency Stop.  An emergency stop is connected to the batch interlock.  Should the batch interlock be removed the batch process will halt.
