Model SBC-3000 Weigh Feeder Controllers encompass leading-edge technologies and functional algorithms that provide unexcelled weigh feeder performance to satisfy the most demanding process requirements across a very broad range of applications. And with an unprecedented number of standard and optional features, accessories, and interfacing capabilities (including native Ethernet and Profibus connectivity), these controllers also provide unparalleled versatility, ease of use, and operational reliability. In particular, they are ideally suited for those applications that require central computer control with minimal hardware.
The Model SBC-3000 Controller operates a single Acrison Weigh Feeder. The Controller integrates a single circuit module with a bright, state-of-the-art TFT color graphics display (measuring 7” diagonally), in a package designed for panel-mounting; the assembly is dust-tight/water-tight.
The Model SBC-3000-CM Controller operates a single Acrison Weigh Feeder. The Controller consists of a single circuit module designed for applications that utilize a central computer, PLC or DCS for monitoring and control, which do not require a local operator interface. A local Keyboard/Display unit is available as an option.
The SBC-3000-CM Controller is typically supplied in a card rack, the size of which depends upon how many controllers will be required for a given application. Frequently used in conjunction with Acrison’s Acri-Data Multi-Feeder Supervisory Control System.
The VME-style card racks typically used with SBC-3000-CM Controllers will accommodate either 6 or 17 CM Modules, as well as option modules. These card racks can be supplied with flanges for plate-mounting in an optionally supplied enclosure, or mounting in a user’s existing enclosure, or on the front of an enclosure, or in a 19-inch rack mount. When mounted on the front of an enclosure, a bezel is provided.
The SBC-3000 and SBC-3000-CM Controllers share many design features, including identical weigh feeder control software. The core computational heart of these two controllers is identical. It provides non-volatile program memory and set point storage using state-of-the-art, low power, flash and ferro-electric memory technology. In addition, the program can be quickly updated using a PC or laptop, if required.
The use of today’s advanced technologies enables SBC-3000 Controllers to utilize a single program that is configurable to control any Acrison Weigh Feeder model. The program also includes, as standard, serial/network interface protocols, and all languages currently available from Acrison, thereby providing complete compatibility between the various functions and options.
SBC-3000 Controllers support operation with either AC variable frequency or SCR/DC motor controllers using serial or analog interfaces.
The SBC Controllers provide many functions and features derived from nearly four decades of experience with microprocessor-based weigh feeder controllers. While all functions are fully described in the Operating and Instruction Manual, the following describes some of them:
The following options are available with SBC-3000 Controllers:
SBC-3000 Controllers are certified to meet the following standards when supplied in suitable enclosures and with approved power supplies:
