Description

SIWAREX WP321 is suitable for tasks typical of non-automatic scales: Level measurement in silos and bunkers, and platform scales can be seamlessly integrated in the automation environment.

 

The internal update rate of 100, 120 or 600Hz allows a fast and accurate force measurement, too. Scales can also be installed in hazardous areas (with Ex-interface SIWAREX IS). The configuration package and the “ready for use” sample application offers very fast development and implementation of customer and industry specific solutions.

 

SIWAREX WP321 can be integrated and used in SIMATIC Step7 V5 as well as in TIA Portal.
