Single Channel Indicator Can Control Two Circuits for Use in Batching Operations

The Model 1020-B Batching Controller is an advanced digital indicator designed to work seamlessly with Scaletron Platform Scales. The 1020-B indicator is designed for a batch-out process where the user would like to dispense pre-determined amounts with accuracy, into a line or another container. The indicator can be configured to display in tenths, ones, or tens units, and the units available are: pounds, kilograms, grams, gallons, liters, or milliliters. The display is a two line, alpha numeric display that provides prompts as well as data values. The 4-20mA value is scalable and can be changed in the field, but is commonly used to reflect the total net weight. The relays that are the heart of the batching control are SPST NO+NC relays which can be used to control other latching relays for power control.

A system for batching may be set up by combining a Scaletron platform scale with the 1020-B. Accuracy for these systems is ±0.1% to ±0.25% of full scale capacity. Indicators come pre-programmed and fully calibrated to the base, with the parameters set according to the buyer’s specifications. Operators may make some changes in the batching fill menus as well as the 4-20mA setting menu to suit their changing needs. The controller is equipped with a pushbutton method to restore factory calibration without the need for test weights in the field.
