Weighing Indicator Controller with up to 16 Set Points (ADW-SP16)

Weighing Indicator Controller with up to 16 Set Points (ADW-SP16)
  • Up to 16 setpoints, each with an associated SPCO relay (on DIN rail module)
  • Individual set point, In-flight and hysterisis values
  • Programmable from the ADW keypad
  • Relay contact rating 230V @ 5A AC
  • Communications and Printer Driver
  • Simple one pass auto calibration for minimum set-up time on site
  • Provides excitation of 10V @ 160mA to drive up to 6 x 350 Ohm load cells
  • Variable gain input sensitivity from 0.5 to 200 mV/V
  • 6 wire input to compensate for zener barrier and cable losses
  • RS232 or RS485 communications for setup, data transfer or label / ticket printing

The DIN rail mounted remote relay units offer an increased number of set points over that provided by a standard ADW15 strain gauge indicator/controller.

This allows for multi-action operations such as batch and recipe control.

The software of the ADW-SP16 gives the user freedom to program the number of set points for their requirements. A single ADW-SP16 will control up to 16 set points, programmed from its front panel.

Set points can be individually set up with In Flight compensation and hysteresis values.
Separate 'Output Latch' and 'Output Action' for up to 14 of the 16 set points is available, adjustable from the front panel of the ADW-SP16. A special mnemonic allows the user to specify the number of set points to be used.

All relays are pluggable and connections are made via field screw terminals.

Calibration Automatic digital by use of keypad and 1 (or 2) known weights. Manual calibration can also be selected
Auto Tare By pressing keys ' > ' and then 'R' , display will zero. Auto tare value can also be viewed and manually changed if required. Auto tare value is retained on powerdown.

The Relay Output Module
The module consists of 8 relays rated at 230 volts 5 Amps - SPCO, Alarm via 30V 50mA NC contact, DIN rail mounted for a G or top hat profile. Each relay is plug-able and connections are made by 2.5mm field screw terminals.
Indication of relay status is shown by LED's. Trip points volt free contact. The module can be situated up to 2 metres from the ADW15 load cell indicator controller.
Communication Port CP Operation
All display data can be accessed via the communications port along with relay, PID power and EEPROM status. All user configurable data can be changed including EEPROM enable/disable and relay reset.
