The Mantracourt weighing controllers and alarm modules offer precision control of weighing, temperature and other process variables together with a host of advanced features not normally found in this class of weighing controller. These weighing controllers offer simple calibration and configuration with options for additional outputs such as 4-20 mA/ 0-10 V analogue outputs and communications ports for connection to PC’s, PLC’s printers and remote displays.
With Mantracourt products the emphasis is on simplicity and ease of use. A simple 'QuickStart' section in the manual can be used to configure all the functions essential for controlling your process. This includes input sensor type, measurement range, control options and alarms - making 'Out of the Box' operation truly achievable. If you prefer, you can specify what you need at point of order and we will ship the unit preconfigured to your requirements.
LCA20 Load Cell Weighing Controller
One of Mantracourt’s most popular products is the LCA20. This load cell amplifier and weighing indicator (LCA20) offers options of local or remote LCD displays, isolated 4-20 mA 0-10 V analogue outputs, relay outputs for control or alarm functions and in-flight compensation commonly used in crane overload alarms. The RS232 or RS485 options provide for digital communications (including setup) and can support label or ticket printers.
Controls and Alarms
It is both a safety and a regulatory requirement to control. For monitoring of multi-load cell installations such as silos, tanks and other systems where the failure of a load cell could be catastrophic then take a look at the LCI.
LCI Load Cell Controller Modules
The LCI load cell controller modules constantly samples the individual load cell channels and activates an alarm if any failure conditions are detected. For a simple summing circuit with no trimming and no corner compensation, use the Load Cell Junction PCB, model JPP Load Cell Junction PCB, and for trimming and corner compensation, use the Active Junction Box, model JBA Load Cell Junction Box.
