June 17, 2009
Rate Controller is now available factory installed in a stainless steel (Nema 4x) enclosure. It can be configured as a blind unit or with a keyboard and display. A load cell summing board or intrinsic barrier assembly can be added to eliminate the need for a system junction box or for use with hazardous Class I, II, III DIV 1 and 2 applications. The controller comes standard with EtherNet and optional EtherNet/IP TCP/IP, DeviceNet, Allen-Bradley Remote I/O, Profibus or Modbus TCP/IP networks. It includes WAVERSAVER® to eliminate the effects of surrounding vibration for fast, stable weight display, C2® electronic calibration without test weights, a Secure Digital (SD) based Secure Memory Module card for fast transfer of configuration data, an embedded web server for instrument access over a web browser, and INTEGRATED TECHNICIAN® for system diagnostics and troubleshooting.
