Dosing controllers type FLEX now for mobile applications

DC version

In the meantime the FLEX series of instruments exists out of three models, namely the
1. standard FLEX with active sense and a variable number of inputs and outputs.
2. FLEX-2100, with a passive sense and a fixed number of inputs and outputs.
3. 2 and 4 channel FLEX, suitable for 2 or 4 weighers, each with a passive sense and a variable number of inputs and outputs.
In many applications the power supply is not a mains but a battery, 12 or 24 V d. Examples you find in road traffic, internal transport, shipping, the offshore industry, hoists and transportable equipment. The absence of mains however does not mean there is no need for weighing. That’s why the existing range expands with a version, fit for voltages between 9 and 24 V dc. The well-known characteristics, a flexible controller with a high measure and control speed, having an operator terminal with a “touch panel”, several communication entries, inputs and outputs remains unchanged. Furthermore software versions, such as the choice out of destructive and non-destructive material investigation, control of weights, grading, dosing, filling, continuous and discontinuous belt weighing, mass flow control, bunker weighing and so on are present. In brief the specifications are:
* operation by means of a TFT touch panel, multi-colour, high resolution and, depending of the application, the choice out of several screen lay outs.
* a fast measuring instrument, 2000 conversion/s.
* several digital outputs, under which Ethernet and Profibus DP.
* An enclosure for panel mounting with a watertight front (IP65) or
* As an alternative, a watertight stainless steel enclosure.
* 10.000 d in accordance with the NAWI and MID directive.
When the weigher leaves for “far away” the only thing you have to do is to enter some address information and the instrument recalculates the calibration to the gravity over there.

Company information

PENKO Engineering B.V.
PENKO Engineering B.V.
PENKO Engineering B.V. specialises in the development and manufacture of high accuracy and reliable electronic weighing and dosing systems typically designed for use in process industries. We also provide OEM companies with a wide range of weighing and dosing measurement, display and sequencer components and products for integration in automated machinery. The ever increasing cost of materials, growing stringent environmental regulations, consistent quality and track and traceability, insist that process industries pay more attention to quality conformity. The basic and most reliable measuring method to warrant all of the above is still defined by weight, regardless of whether the product is a liquid, a solid mass, granules, a powder or a gas. Over Thirty Years Weighing Experience Established over thirty years ago, PENKO was acquired in June 2004 by ETC (Electronic Theatre Controls) of Middleton, WI, USA. Our ambitions have not changed - we are dedicated to supplying the best technology weighing and dosing solutions to clients who depend on continuous and batch control manufacturing processes. Our client base includes the food & beverage, pharmaceutical, packaging, metals, pulp & paper and petrochemical industries. We work closely with OEM’s and system integrators who supply the process industry. PENKO Engineering B.V. is a Dutch company within the global ETC Inc. group of companies based in a factory in Ede, Netherlands. Our company is represented in many major industrial countries through a global network of dealers and agents, fully supported by our own field sales and service teams. PENKO is a member of Vereniging Nederlandse Leveranciers van Weeginstrumenten (VLW), the Association of Dutch Suppliers of Weighing Equipment.
