BatchTron-II performs automatic
tolerance checks on all ingredients and is totally self-tuning for fast,
precise batching every time. Over a period of several batches it adjusts
the opening and closing of clam gates and butterfly valves to obtain the
required accuracy at the highest speed. It has automatic moisture
compensation for aggregates, delivers separate formulas and batch sizes
to different user stations, has programmable alarms for plant functions
such as mixer running, gates and doors sticking, programmable timers for
adjusting mixer ingredient sequencing and many other things.
BatchTron-II can be calibrated in English or Metric, and can report in
both units when required.
Overshoot correction - system automatically trims all ingredients
to keep mix design constant. Water manual adjust by
water/cement ratio window.
Hundreds of programmable alarms
for plant functions such as conveyors and mixer not running, gates and
doors sticking. Alarms shut down operation until you verify that the fault
has been cleared. They help your operator find the problem quickly.
front panel has only two manual switches - POWER circuit breaker and EMERGENCY
STOP push button. All other functions, such as material feeds and
conveyor belts, are controlled from graphic touch pads on the screen.
The two or three 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 mixer, allowing true "hands-off" operation.
Because the heart of the system is an industrial PLC - not a frail
computer - BatchTron is truly rugged and will run for many years without
service of any kind.
Real power, plus reliability in a
Operation is simplicity itself.
Like the pages of a book, BatchTron-II'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.
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 GO button
and start the plant machinery again. All these features and much more make
BatchTron the best value ever in batching systems.
- Aborted batch restart, uses ingredients already in scales, completes
- Memory card stores batch reports securely - no
need to maintain connection to a PC computer. Just let BatchTron
store results and download them whenever you wish.
BatchTron-II is a truly
simple-to-use batching system with all the features of expensive,
computer controlled systems at a fraction of the cost. It uses an
industrial PLC, not a computer, for rock solid performance and
tremendous reliability as well as impressive batching power. It operates
completely automatically at high speed and can also be run manually or
part manually when the need arises.
Of the hundreds of
BatchTron and other PLC systems in service over 20 years, only two PLCs
and 3 touch screens have ever failed.
