SWB605 PowerMount Weigh Modules

Predicting the Future – Diagnostics Prevent Costly Errors

Batching tanksLoad cell failure during production can not only throw off batch quality, but it also can cost your business valuable time and money. New load cell technology monitors your weighing constantly, alerting you to potential failures before they happen.

Analog weighing technology can leave you wondering how accurate your data really is. With analog load cells, data from each cell is averaged and the data from individual cells in a tank – or floor – scale weighing system is lost. If one analog load cell fails, it usually goes undetected until a periodic calibration. That means weighing errors can go undetected for a long time, causing bad batches, costly product giveaway or illegal underfilling.

The PowerMount™ weigh module is a further step in leveraging POWERCELL® technology for reliable production and for quick recovery. SWB605 PowerMount weigh modules using POWERCELL technology alerts you when a failure has occurred or when it could occur in future. This allows you to plan maintenance and services instead of simply reacting to failures, which cause lost production time. SWB605 PowerMount ensures every load-cell deviation is discovered right away. Operators can be alerted to variances with an email, text message or log file entry.

Individual Load-Cell Monitoring

SWB605 PowerMount delivers load-cell diagnostics data and true high-performance weight values that can be monitored individually for errors. When uptime matters, SWB605 PowerMount continuously reads the load-cell signal to verify proper functionality. Without this continuous monitoring, out-of-symmetry errors and out-of-range temperatures can wreak havoc on product quality, causing significant cost.

It can take hours to replace an analog load cell. POWERCELL load cells are designed in a way that they take just minutes to replace, cutting downtime to almost nothing. SWB605 PowerMount with POWERCELL technology ensures reliable production, allowing you to avoid faulty batches and to recover quickly when failures do occur.
