    IBC

    Batch Controller

    The IBC Batch Controller is a 120/240VAC or 12-40VDC powered batch controller for liquids that incorporates an eight (8) digit 14.2mm LED (light emitting diode) display. The instrument can be configured from the front touch buttons to batch volumes from 0.001 to 999,999 litres and K factors from 999,999 to 0.01 can be utilised. The instrument can batch in up or down mode and provide the excitation power supply for the flow sensor.



    • Batch in local or remote mode up or down from set point
    • Simple touch switch programming with English statement prompts
    • Low cost - High performance
    • High contrast LED display of 8 characters of 14.2 mm digit height
    • Low flow alarm with batch cancel
    • Programmable end of batch signal with an end of batch pulse of 0.0 to 99.9 seconds
    • Background total
    • Batch set from front panel in programme mode or in run
    • Batch set from front panel with selection for one of 10 batch quantities
    • Pulse output per litre
    • Dip switch selectable input: turbine, reed switch, open collector, Namur & CMOS logic
    • Applications include water treatment, dosing, food ingredient batching and bottling
    • Isolated sensor supply that can be adjusted from 8 to 20VDC
    • Plug in screw terminal electrical connections
    • K factor 999,999 to .01 and set point 0.001 to 999,999
    • 120 or 240VAC 47-63 Hz supply or factory fitted 12 to 40VDC isolated supply
    • Emc compliant

    IBC Batch Controller is a 120/240VAC or 12-40VDC powered batch controller for liquids that incorporates an eight (8) digit 14.2mm LED (light emitting diode) display. The instrument can be configured to batch volumes from 0.001 to 999,999 litres and K factors from 999,999 to 0.01. The instrument can batch up or down and provide the excitation power supply for the flow sensor.

    The IBC can operate in local manual mode by front panel touch switches for Batch Start, Stop and Resume or in remote mode as these functions are available for external control.

    Input Details
    • The instrument accepts an input from 0 to 5KHZ and is dip switch selectable for open collector, reed, Hall, Namur and turbine signals (from 20mV peak to peak).

    Display

    • The IBC incorporates an eight (8) digit 14.2mm digit height high contrast (LED) display with a wide viewing angle and a viewing distance of 5 metres.

    Totaliser Memory

    • The instrument incorporates a background running total that is stored in eeprom memory during loss of power. This total can be displayed by the front total touch button and reset by a normally open push button between terminals 1 and 7.

    Low flow alarm

    • The instrument incorporates a low flow alarm. If no input pulses are received in a pre- programmed period the low flow output becomes active and the batch is cancelled and LF ERR is displayed.  

    Environmental Parameters

    • 0-70 degrees Celsius and 0-90% RH non-condensing.
    • Front facia is weatherproof to IP65.
    • Optional clear weatherproof boot to give panel protection to IP67.

    Power Supply

    • 120/240VAC 47-63 Hz or DC to DC converter isolator from 12 to 40VDC. An adjustable transducer power supply of 8 to 20VDC at 30mA is incorporated in the instrument.

    Mounting Details

    • Panel mounting extruded aluminium enclosure of case dimensions 144 mm wide by 72 mm high by 85 mm deep with a panel cut out of 139 mm wide by 66 mm high.

    Batcher Operation

    • The batch size is set in from the front panel. Pressing the start button will energise output relay one and start liquid flow. Relay two will energise after its start value is exceeded. The display will increment in value as the batch progresses to the finish starting the end of batch output. The batch can be halted at any time with the stop button and restarted with the resume button which will cause the batch to continue from where it stopped; but not reset the batch counter.
