Minebea Intec offers a complete range of weighing electronics. Each of the electronics is developed with the user and application in mind. Our offering ranges from scale indicators for simple weighing tasks to programmable electronics for the automation of weighing processes.
What is meant by weighing electronics?
The term weighing electronics refers to products that evaluate signals from load cells or transmit or display measurement results/weight values from weighing instruments. With the help of the weighing electronics, the measurement results can be calibrated and, if necessary, re-calibrated (also known as adjustment).
Minebea Intec has a broad portfolio of weighing electronics which offer the optimum solution for every application. The range extends from simple weighing transmitters, which reliably process high-precision weight values from silo and hopper scales, to process and weighing indicators, which quickly and accurately display weight values, to weight controllers, which in addition to numerous interfaces and options can also offer the possibility of programming applications yourself. Weighing electronics are connected either directly or via cable junction boxes to load cells or a weighing platform. In addition, several scales can be connected to one weighing electronics device.
What are the areas of application for weighing electronics?
Weighing electronics are used in a variety of industries to ensure reliable evaluation of the signal from load cells or industrial scales. Depending on the application, a different product is recommended: Weighing transmitters often only process signals from analog or weight values from digital load cells and, thanks to their space-saving design, offer simple integration into existing production systems. Some transmitters are equipped with a simple display on which the weight values are displayed and which is used for status monitoring on site. An example of this is the CSD-92 transmitter, which can be installed on DIN rails to save space and, despite its compact dimensions, offers an FSTN liquid crystal display that can be freely configured.
Process or weighing indicators, on the other hand, are a device for convenient, digital display of weight values. Indicators can also be used to control numerous applications, such as filling, counting and checkweighing. The configuration of the models is easy with modern electronics: process indicators such as the X3 can be configured remotely via an integrated website. Features such as Smart Calibration allow adjustment to be carried out completely without weights. Reliable and fast processing of weight values with up to 120,000 steps is also guaranteed with the X3.
Weighing controllers, on the other hand, not only offer a convenient display, numerous connection options via interface options such as TCP/IP, ModBus TCP, ProfibusDP or Ethernet/IP and digital and analog inputs and outputs, but are also ideally suited for controlling or automating complex weighing processes. Users can also program the controller themselves using the IEC61131 programming language and optimally adapt its application as required. As a multi-purpose device, the Maxxis 5 already offers six pre-installed applications, so that the device can be integrated directly into processes after delivery.
