Developed to streamline powder processing, the Universal Feeder Controller automatically controls weighing, dosing, and feeding from up to four different feeders simultaneously, eliminating the need for separate controllers for each feeder. The new feeder control system operates in gravimetric and volumetric feeding applications in both batch and continuous processes and may be setup to manage these different applications at the same time from a single, easy to use HMI. Access, monitoring, and adjustments may be performed on-site or via remote operation.
Suitable for automating food, chemical, pharmaceutical and virtually any powder handling processes, the flexible Universal Feeder Controller is pre-configured for fast, easy installation yet may be customized for each process to control actuators, sensors, and additional machinery as needed. The process instrumentation fully integrates with all current automation networks and supports Internet of Things functionality, and big data acquisition and analysis. Predictive maintenance, quality control, and continuous improvement may be automatically improved.
