The SIWAREX FTC (Flexible Technology for Continuous Weighing) weighing module integrated in SIMATIC S7/PCS 7 uses process control system features such as integral communication, diagnostics and configuration tools. SIWAREX FTC is the optimum solution for demanding continuous weighing applications. Weights can be measured with extreme accuracy in up to three ranges.
Uniform structure and universal communication through the integration in the SIMATIC S7 and SIMATIC PCS7
Application in the decentralized system concept by connecting to PROFIBUS DP / PROFINET through ET 200M
Weight measurement or force to resolutions of 16 million parts
Precision (0.5 µV per e)
High measuring rate of 10 ms
Parameter definable input and output functions
Flexible adjustment for various SIMATIC requirements
Simple parameter definition with the SIWATOOL FTC program through the RS 232 interface
Module exchanging without readjusting the scale is possible
Scale progress recording/logging
Intrinsically safe load cell supply for Ex-Zone 1 (optional)
Application in Ex-Zone 2
Extensive diagnostic functions
Typical applications: conveyor scales, loss-in-weigh scales and bulk flowmeters for belt load measurement, flowrate measurement, belt volume measurement, material loading and bidirectional force measurement.
