SIWAREX FTA Weighing Module

Brand: Siemens AG
Does not ship to United States
SIWAREX FTA is a calibratable and versatile weighing module for SIMATIC S7, C7 and PCS7 automation systems.

SIWAREX FTA function module integrated with SIMATIC S7/PCS7, uses process control features such as integral communication, diagnostics and configuration tools. By setting a parameter in SIWAREX FTA, an individual scale type can be activated.
Features
  • Uniform structure and universal communication through the integration in the SIMATIC S7 and SIMATIC PCS 7
  • Application in the decentralized system concept by connecting to PROFIBUS DP / PROFINET through ET 200M
  • Weight or force measurement to resolutions of 16 million parts
  • Precision of 3 x 6000 d, calibratable
  • Fast dosing with fast communication
  • Calibratable display with SIMATIC HMI Standard Operator Panels
  • Stepless or incremental dosage control
  • Exact dosage switching signals (< 1 msec)
  • Definable input and output parameters
  • Definable parameters for the most diverse of applications
  • Flexible adjustment for different requirements
  • Simple parameter definition with the SIWATOOL FTA program
  • Theoretical adjustment without adjustment weights
  • Modules can be exchanged without readjusting the scale
  • Scale progress recording/logging
  • Calibratable Alibi memory
  • Can be used for Ex-applications
