Compared to volumetric measuring methods, weighing is the most accurate technology to determine the amount of high viscose materials. SLP85xD family load cells are ideal for integrating into linear or rotary multi-head filling machines. Typical food products that can be filled are fruit juices, edible oil, low fat emulsions, like sauces, and heterogeneous products, such as yogurt. Sanitary aspects are also important design criteria in food processing. The filling of chemicals, lubricants and cosmetic products can also be filled at a very high accuracy.
Plug & Communicate with Most Common PLC Systems
SLP85xD is dedicated for use in automation. Connectivity via PROFIBUS DP, Ethernet / IP or PROFINET IO RT is incorporated in the space saving, compact unit.
Comprehensive Overload Protection Assures High Uptime
SLP85xD family load cells have a robust, integrated overload protection, which protects the load cell against overload forces up to 100 kg in upward and downward directions.
Fast Weighing and Data Transfer to PLC
Up to 1200 filtered weight values per second can be transmitted from the load cell directly to the PLC. This data allows the control system to perform sorting & grading processes, including completeness control.
Diagnostic Features for Quality and Performance Assurance
The load cell monitors its status and forwards information to the PLC in case of an issue which might cause unreliable weight values or a failure in the future. Three LEDs indicate this information directly on the load cell.
Integrated Filling Control with Digital In- / Outputs
SLP85xD offers the possibility to control filling processes autonomously with digital I / O’s for steering the dosing device. This ensures high performance filling and reduces the reaction time.
Cleaning with High-Pressure Water Jets and Chemicals
In accordance with IP69K, the robust stainless steel load cell body and high ingress protection with hermetic sealing permit aggressive disinfection procedures which are typical in the food processing industry.
