Controller Upgrade for Net Weigh Scales

IPS offers controls and scale upgrades for a wide variety of net weight scales, including simplex, duplex, quad and other configurations of scales. All controls include well-defined and field-proven interfances to bag placers and/or robots, and will work with virtually any type of feeder, including gravity, vibrate and belt fed or a combination of these. Our Controller supplier has many years of experience in operating net weight scales, and have provided controls to some of the largest US manufacturers of net weight scales. Our list of upgrades include machines with LVDT's or purely mechanical scales with trip switches. We can provide complete mechanical and electrical upgrades to your existing scales, saving your company up to 50% of the cost of a new machine. Using the Model 4693 Universal Filler Controller, we can operate a single or duplex set of net weigh buckets from a single controller, or string multiple controllers together and provide totally integrated control for up to a quad scale with either single or two-up bag placement. The 4693 controller offers a wide variety of options and accessories, including environmental upgrades for corrosive or hazardous areas, printer packages to list each fill weight & summarize at the end of a run, or Ethernet or serial ports for data logging purposes. As part of the purchase price, IPS will send an experienced technician or engineer to your site your site to survey the equipment and discuss the upgrade prior to arrival of the upgrade kit. The site visit allows us to familiarize ourselves with your equipment and application, and gives your plant personnel an opportunity to better understand the upgrade and ask questions before the upgrade begins. What’s included in the upgrade: Depending upon the equipment being upgraded, we will include: Model 4693 filler controls Scale assembly (includes load cell & flexures – no moving parts) All hardware; nuts & bolts, enclosures, tubing, fittings, controls, etc. Labor to install the upgrade and train staff in its use Typically an upgrade takes between 1 and 3 days to complete, based upon the equipment, application, and number of fill spouts being upgraded. We will also require the full-time assistance of at least one of your company’s maintenance people. This helps the job go faster, but more importantly, leaves you with a staff member that is intimately familiar with the upgrade and its components. All upgrades offered by IPS include scale controls that can be easily upgraded to provide detailed and comprehensive data logging and down-time reporting functions. Multiple 4693 controllers on different types of scales can be connected to this same software, providing complete data collection and analysis for your production scales. Additionally, the Model 4693 Universal Filler Controller is identical to our line of checkweigher controls, bulk bag filler controls, net weigh scale controls, gross (valve) bag filler controls, and other types of filling and weighing scales. All hardware is interchangeable, and cross-compatible, regardless of scale type. This provides a single low-cost set of spare electronic parts, and common operation and calibration across all scales.
