Gravimetric feeder control
April 1, 2010
The Model HI 1756-FC single-feeder control module mounts directly into an Allen-Bradley ControlLogix chassis. It is a closed-loop rate controller that can be used with auger, belt and vibratory-based feeders, converting them from volumetric to gravimetric feeding. It features five-point automatic rate calibration, automatic feeder refill and various alarms including rate tolerance and disturbance using the PLC’s rack I/O. The device was developed with the ControlLogix add-on profile, which allows end users to configure the instrument for the application through PLC software on a PC.
