Based on a modular and scalable concept, it can be used as a stand-alone weighing system or be integrated into the most complex automated systems.
eNod4-B is able to manage belt scales or belt weigh feeders. It includes a load cells input and encoder input for the belt speed calculation. With these data, eNod4-B calculates the flow rate, totals the amount of material passing over the belt and manages a dosing cycle. It also integrates a self-tuning PID controller providing a very accurate flow rate control.
eNod4 offers full connectivity to Modbus-RTU, Modbus TCP, CANopen, PROFIBUS-DP, PROFINET, EtherNet/IP and EtherCAT networks. It can be optionally combined with touch screens of the eNodTouch range. Available in several sizes, these HMI can be used to configure from 1 to 6 eNod4 and allow the use of eNod4 without PLC.
eNod4 is provided with eNodView software for its implementation and configuration. This tool also offers advanced functions of signal acquisition and simulation allowing mechanical disturbances analysis, digital filtering optimization and PID parameters adjustment.
With this new weighing controller, SCAIME expands its offer dedicated to machine manufacturers and engineering companies. The eNod4 range is now able to handle the applications of weight level monitoring (Model T), checkweighing and grading (Model C), gravimetric filling (Model D), belt weighing (model B) or continuous dosing (model F ), covering all weighing needs of the supply chain.
