    IBW

    Batch Controller

    The IBW Batch Controller is an 85 to 265VAC or 12-40VDC powered batch controller for liquids that incorporates a six (6) digit 18mm LCD (liquid crystal) display and integrated back light. The instrument can be configured for quadrature input with reverse flow detection or single channel pulse train, It can also batch in up or down mode. The IBW provides the excitation power supply for the flow sensor.

    • Programmable for quadrature input or single channel pulse train
    • Background total
    • Programmable delay on relay two start and pre-stop
    • Batch set from front panel in programme mode or in run
    • Can operate as a blend controller
    • Automatic over run compensation in whole litres only
    • Dip switch selectable input: turbine, reed switch, open collector, Namur & CMOS logic
    • 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
    • 85 to 265VAC 47-63 Hz supply or factory fitted 12 to 40VDC isolated supply

    The IBW Batch Controller is an 85 to 265VAC or 12-40VDC powered batch controller for liquids that incorporates a six (6) digit 18mm LCD (liquid crystal display). The instrument can be configured to batch volumes from 0.001 to 999,999 litres. The IBL can operate in local manual mode by front panel touch switches for Batch Start, Stop & resume or in remote mode as these functions are available for external control.

    Input Details
    • The instrument accepts an input from 0 to 2KHZ and is dip switch selectable for open collector, reed, Hall, Namur and turbine signals (from 20mV peak to peak).

    Display

    The IBW incorporates a six (6) digit 18mm digit height (LCD) display with integrated white LED backlight with a wide viewing angle and a viewing distance of 5 metres. The front panel switched are an embossed membrane type with positive action.

    Communication / Printer Interface

    The instrument incorporates a Bluetooth interface to an App and Tablet or drive a ticket printer with client header, batch total, accumulated total, current time, current date and batch number.  

    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.

    Low flow alarm

    The instrument has a low flow alarm. If no pulses are received in a pre- programmed period the alarm is activated, the batch is cancelled and LF ERR is displayed.  

    Environmental Parameters

    0 to 70 degrees Celsius and 0-90% RH NON condensing. Front facia is weatherproof to IP65.

    Operation

    Four membrane switches on the front panel allow the batch quantity to be set and batching operations to be started, stopped, resumed and reset. When the batcher is running the DISPLAY button can be used to show the background total and the Batch Set button to change the batch quantity.

    Performance enhancements

    The instrument has a universal AC power supply that allows it to be powered from 85 to 265VAC and 47 to 63 Hz. Alternatively it can be supplied as a DC powered instrument that operate from 12 to 40VDC.

    One or two stage valve operation

    Two output relays are provided for single or dual stage valve control. Relay one will energise at the start of the batch and de-energise at the end of batch. Relay two will energise at a programmed delay after batch start and de-energise at a programmed quantity prior to completion of the batch. This function allows a slow start and slow shutdown of the batch operation.
