Scaletron Industries, Ltd., a manufacturer of corrosion resistant scales and volumetric feeders, has announced the addition of the Scaletron AccuPro 6000-TS™ Touch Screen Digital Scale Controller designed to provide accurate monitoring of water treatment and other chemicals when used in conjunction with its complete line of drum, tank, platform, ton cylinder and spill containment scales.
“The AccuPro 6000-TS™’s easy to use interface features touch screen input with a multi-level menu system that brings a new level of simplicity and accuracy to chemical weighing applications”, stated Edward Dougherty, President at Scaletron Industries. “In addition, the AccuPro 6000-TS™ helps insure both operator and plant safety by accurately providing the critical data needed to determine chemical usage.”
Available with one or two channels, each with 4-20mA standard, the controller can be configured to simultaneously monitor levels in two separate chemical containers independently. The AccuPro 6000-TS™ provides excellent accuracy of ±0.1% to ±0.25% of full scale capacity.
Featuring an easy to read color LCD touch screen display, the software allows the user to monitor net weight or gross weight in a variety of formats including pounds, kilograms, gallons, or liters in addition to mA out, tare adjustment and set point values.
In addition, the user may combine different base designs on different channels of the same controller, regardless of the number of load cells in the base design. The user may apply the controller to filling applications, as well as loading applications.
Other standard features include an audible alarm and leak detector input plus Modbus TCP communication support via ethernet for full remote monitoring capabilities.
Options include up to four set points per channel, which are programmable for high or low level alarms with relay contacts.
To provide protection from corrosive chemicals, the controller electronics are housed in a NEMA 4X, UL approved enclosure and can be remote mounted up to 200 feet from the scale base frame. The AccuPro 6000-TS™ controller is ideal for measuring the usage of chlorine gas, sodium hypochlorite and other chemicals used in a variety of applications including wastewater treatment, municipal water treatment, industrial process water treatment, municipal and commercial swimming pools and the weighing of chemicals and gases in the chemical industry.
