Product features Weight indicator X3

Flexible and diverse for individual configurations: The weight indicator X3 is fitted with three freely configurable digital inputs and outputs as standard. These can be used with an application-specific limit function and associated values to avoid over and under filling. The weight indicator also has option slots for interfaces and input/output cards. EasyFill for one-component dosing of liquids, powders and granules reduces programming time in the PLC, enabling fast and flexible process changes.

Applications

  • Fill quantity control
  • Filling and Dosing

Certifications

  • ATEX
  • NTEP
  • OIML

Including EasyFill application

EasyFill is a basic software application for one-component dosing of fluids, powders and granules with user-specific configurable target value, tolerance and overshoot value. Processes can be directly controlled using the integrated digital inputs/outputs. Control for implementing simple dosing processes efficiently and easily is guaranteed thanks to numerous options/interfaces for integration into your production network.

Assignment via IP address

There are flexible solutions for IP address allocation: it is either set manually by the operator, defined as an auto IP directly by the weight indicator X3 or taken from the assigned DHCP server. If the IP address is not known when allocating automatically, the Minebea Intec Indicator Browser included with the product enables you to search for the right transmitters in the network.

Simple online operation

Using an integrated website, users have access to a wide range of weighing process functions using the weight indicator X3:

  • Display the website integrated with the device using the IP address in your browser
  • Display and change device configuration
  • Calibration of a device using a range of methods
    • with load cell data (‘smart calibration’)
    • with weights
    • with mv/V
  • View and print the overall configuration
  • Display weight on the PC screen
  • View and readout of Alibi memory and readout of fault memory
  • Store/download a device configuration as PC file

Versatile interfaces

To guarantee integration into existing control systems:

  • Standard: Ethernet TCP/IP interface with integrated Modbus TCP protocol
  • Optional: Field bus interfaces Profibus DP, Profinet, DeviceNet or Ethernet/IP

OPC server included – for connection to higher-level systems.

Calibration via PC in under a minute

The integrated functionality ‘Smart Calibration′ allows efficient calibration of the silo and hopper scale via PC. Weights are not required for this.

Fundamental data

LABORATORI DERIVATI ORGANICI (LDO) specialises in the production of pharmaceutical principles assets (API) of animal origin. To build a new factory and enter the US market, LDO needed to meet FDA requirements with regarding API production.

 

More about the challenge

Challenge

To obtain the FDA approval it is important that drugs are manufactured under conditions and practices required by the Good Manufacturing Practices (GMP) regulations. The plant is fitted with equipment, instrumentation and devices that need to comply with FDA requirements so as to be able to obtain the approval of North American authorities.

 

More about the solution

Solution

The Minebea Intec load cells and weighing electronics in Hygienic Design provided a weighing solution that was conducive to LDO’s needs: it obtained the Italian AIFA approval in 2016 and has now also achieved FDA compliance for API production, allowing it to open up to the large new market that is the US market.

 

More about the customer

Customer
