B+L Industrial Measurements GmbH, designers and manufacturers of innovative, high specification weighing, dosing and control technology solutions are represented in the UK by measurement specialist Ixthus Instrumentation.
The German company’s comprehensive range of weighing controllers, modular systems and extensive support software are well proven across demanding process weighing tasks in filling and bagging, bulk loading, check weighing, process weighing, dispensing, silo and tank weighing and more and are characterised by high precision and exacting repeatability even under arduous machine conditions where weighing scale vibration or fluctuating load properties are present.
The dataPond 3F dosing/filling controller is aimed at fast filing and bagging processes in high performance machines and impresses with an extended scope of functions, local operation or fieldbus, and web-server functionality. Controlling and monitoring the entire process for dosing, filling and bagging of granulates, free-flowing solids or liquids, the controller’s 220 parameters set help to ensure accurate performance at cycle rates of over 2,000 fills per hour. The industry approved dataPond 3F fully meets the requirements of legal metrology for legal- and non-legal-for-trade categories R 61, R 51, R 107, and R 76. With up to four connected load cells, the weighing controller can accommodate almost any control environment through its complement of 16 digital I/Os, Ethernet interface and Modbus protocol with optional Profibus, Profinet or EtherNet/IP fieldbus interfaces and further protocols on request.
Other impressive weighing controllers from B+L include the miniPond 3F dosing/filling controller for medium to high speeds. Offering many of the features of the dataPond 3F this unit maintains offers a competitive solution for integration into Industry 4.0 related production machines where its extensive fieldbus capability is easily adapted, for example for condition monitoring applications at the local level or in the cloud.
