Weighing module SIWAREX FTC

Description

SIWAREX FTC (Flexible Technology for Continuous Weighing) is a versatile and flexible weighing module for conveyor scales, loss-in-weigh scales and bulk flow meters. It can also be used to record weights and measure force. The SIWAREX FTC function module is integrated in SIMATIC S7/PCS7, and uses the features of this modern automation system, such as integral communication, diagnostics and configuration tools.

The SIWAREX FTC weighing module is the optimum solution wherever high demands are placed on continuous weighing procedures. Thanks to its outstanding measuring properties, weights can be measured with extreme accuracy in up to three ranges.Typical areas of application are belt load measurement, flowrate measurement, belt volume measurement, material loading and bidirectional force measurement.
