SIWAREX DB

Junction Box

SIWAREX DB digital junction box brings the benefits of digitalization down to the individual analog load cell, including simplified service and reduced downtime. With SIWAREX DB, you can connect a scale with up to four load cells, making it possible to gather and analyze weight measurement data more comprehensively than ever before. SIWAREX DB is easy to add to your existing automation environment – just connect it to SIWAREX weighing electronics for direct integration into SIMATIC S7 or PCS 7 automation systems. Diagnostics and error reports for each connected load cell are shown centrally at the SIMATIC controller or the HMI panel. Due to its rugged housing with IP66 degree of protection, SIWAREX DB is well suited for weighing applications in demanding industry environments.
