BatchTron-III panels have only three manual switches - POWER key switch, EMERGENCY
STOP push button and RUN lighted pushbutton. All other functions,
such as material feeds and conveyor belts, are controlled from graphic
touch pads on the screen. The full-load-cell scales, water and
admix meters are all displayed on the touch screen, eliminating the need
for separate indicators. A powerful Omron PLC
controls material feeders, discharges scales and runs the
mixers, allowing totally unattended operation.

is simplicity itself. Like the pages of a book, BatchTron-III's
many screens unfold at the touch of a finger. The
"page" arrows at the corner of every screen carry you through the
control screens to menus for every function. Enter values on the
keyboard and return to the batch operator screen.
The BatchTron family even protects your operation after a power failure by returning
to the point where it stopped, ready for you to press the RUN button and
start the plant machinery again. All these features and much more
make BatchTron the best value ever in batching systems.
