The batch controllers, available from Accuweigh Load Cells, Industrial Scales and Weighing Systems provide automatic and manual control for filling eight ingredients including cements and polymers. Based on a Ranger 5100 batching indicator and mated with a PLC, this batch controller accurately fills each of the required ingredients into the travelling skip which is mounted on industrial load cells.

The batch controller is panel mounted into a dustproof Rittal enclosure which also contains all the associated switches, interlocks and selection switches required for the automatic operation and the full manuals over-rides for each function of the batch controller.
The Ranger 5100 batch controller has automatic in-flight adjustment for each ingredient and provides extensive batch reporting for each batch run; including target weight settings, actual batched weigh and weight variances for each ingredient. The batch controller also provides daily/shift production reports as well as full material usage reports for each ingredient.
