Weighing Indicator | Controller for Fast Fill Operations (ADW-FFW)
Weighing Indicator | Controller for Fast Fill Operations (ADW-FFW)
  • For fast fill accurate control
  • Fast 100 updates per second input
  • Fast & slow feeds
  • System speed optimisation
  • Auto tare
  • Auto calibration
  • Auto ‘In Flight ‘ compensation
  • 'Weight complete' output
  • Stand alone or control with PLC

The ADW-FFW Weighing Indicator is the ideal solution for control of high speed and high accuracy filling by weight for strain gauge or load cell applications. Either in a stand alone mode or in conjunction with a PLC.

On receipt of the start fill signal weightment is auto tared, and the relay contacts for fast and slow speed are closed, The system is optimised by a routine to ensure that, fast feed is held as long as possible.
In-flight compensation is applied to the slow feed and automatically adjusted to minimise final error.
When pre set values are reached, contacts turn off the fast and slow feeds.
A 'weight complete' signal is given when within pre selected setting values and time, Auto Tare will take place only when the value falls within a pre set auto tare band.

Input Details
Calibration Automatic digital by use of keypad and 1 (or 2) known weights. Manual calibration can also be selected
Sensitivity Preset via DIL switches between 0.5 to 200mV/V
Excitation 10V DC nominal, 150mA maximum
Compensation By ± sense wires to compensate for cable, connection volt drops and any variation in 10V supply
