The IBS Batch Controller is 85-265VAC or 12-40VDC powered batch controller for liquids that incorporates an eight (8) digit 14.2mm LED (light emitting diode) display. The instrument can be configured from the front panel to batch volumes from 0.001 to 999,999.99 litres.
The IBS is a powered batch controller for liquids that incorporates an eight (8) digit 14.2mm LED display. The instrument can batch up or down and provide the excitation power supply for the flow sensor. The IBS can operate in local manual mode by front panel touch switches for Batch Start, Stop and Resume or in remote mode as this function are brought out to the rear terminal strip that will enable the control of the batch by PLC.
The instrument accepts an input from 0 to 2KHZ and is dip switch selectable for open collector, reed, Hall and turbine signals (from 20mV peak to peak).
The IBS incorporates an eight (8) digit 9mm digit height high contrast (LED) display with a wide viewing angle and a viewing distance of 5 metres.
Bluetooth link is included to interface to a tablet or printer for recording of flow data
The instrument incorporates a background running total that is stored in eeprom memory during loss of power. This total can be displayed by the front total touch button and reset by a normally open push button between terminals 1 and 7.
The instrument incorporates a low flow alarm. If no input pulses are received in a user programmable period the low flow output becomes active and the batch is cancelled and LF ERR is displayed.
85 to 265VAC 47-63 Hz universal supply or isolator DC input from 12 to 40VDC. A transducer power supply of 8 to 20VDC at 30mA is incorporated in the instrument.
Panel mounting extruded plastic enclosure of case dimensions 96 mm wide by 96 mm high by 118mm deep with a panel cut out of 92 mm wide by 92 mm high.
The IBS is user friendly to operate. The batch size is set in from the front panel. Pressing the start button will energise output relay one and start liquid flow. Relay two will energise after its time delay is exceeded. The display will increment in value as the batch progresses to the finish starting the end of batch output. Relay two can be programmed to start and stop anywhere in the batch cycle. The batch can be halted at any time with the stop button and restarted with the resume button which will re-energise the relay one and two causing the batch to continue from where it stopped.
