Software for belt scales
The Höfelmeyer BELT software continuously records the volume of bulk material conveyed on a belt scale. BELT makes it possible to connect a belt scale to an analogue load sensor.
The A/D converter has a high measuring rate and offers high accuracy and excellent insensitivity to electromagnetic radiation. The software runs as an independent system or in combination with a PLC or a control system. The device can be configured for easy recording of conveyor quantities or for dosing with volume pre-selection and adjustable overrun.
In addition, the BELT has a configurable connection for rotary pulse encoder for recording the belt speed. Encoders with PNP, NPN or NAMUR output can be used. Optionally, operation without encoder is possible.
- External counters can be connected
- Continuous data transmission or data transmission as required
- Three counters for e.g. feed rate, shift total and total quantity.
- PLC connection via optional analogue output, Profibus DP, Profinet, Ethernet/IP or Ethernet
