The new version, developed specifically for simple applications with belt scales, has two relays. It calculates rate, totalized weight, belt loading and belt speed. The relays are programmable SPST form A contacts rated 5A at 250 V AC non-inductive, reversible. An automatic calibration function saves time during operation. Both versions store parameter data in a non-volatile Flash memory; measurement and control data is always available, even if the unit loses power. The standard Milltronics BW500 comes with five relays, offers additional PID control and batching in its functionalities and is specially designed for complex applications.
The Milltronics BW500 and BW500/L belt scale integrators of the Siemens Industry Automation division provide unequaled accuracy based on the patented electronic load cell-balancing feature, providing improved efficiency in simple and complex applications.
First launched in 1999, Milltronics BW500 is widely used in the food, cement, aggregate and mining industries. Operating with any belt scale or weighfeeder with up to six strain gauge load cells or LVDT (linear variable differential transformer), the BW500 processes belt load and speed signals for accurate flow rate and totalized weight of bulk solids. The new BW500/L can be used with one or two-load cell belt scale systems. Both versions can be connected to industrial networks via Profibus DP, Allen Bradley RIO and DeviceNet. They are also compatible with Sitrans RD500 remote data manager.
Both versions’ patented electronic load cell-balancing feature make them a world leader in system accuracy. Used with the MMI belt scale, Milltronics BW500 is ideal for fast-moving belts, short idler spacing, and light or uneven belt loading. Combined with Milltronics MSI and MMI belt scales and a speed sensor, Milltronics BW500 has various approvals for custody transfer and legal for trade applications, including OIML (International Organization of Legal Metrology), MID (Measuring Instruments Directive), NTEP (National Type Evaluation Program), and Electronic Indicator/Totalizer approval from Measurement Canada.

For the first time, a team of researchers at the Max-Planck Institute (MPI) for Polymer Research in Mainz, Germany, has succeeded in making an integrated circuit (IC) from just a monolayer of a semiconducting polymer via a bottom-up, self-assembly approach.
In the self-assembly process, the semiconducting polymer arranges itself into an ordered monolayer in a transistor. The transistors are binary switches used...

For photographers and scientists, lenses are lifesavers. They reflect and refract light, making possible the imaging systems that drive discovery through the microscope and preserve history through cameras.
But today's glass-based lenses are bulky and resist miniaturization. Next-generation technologies, such as ultrathin cameras or tiny microscopes, require...
Scientists from the University of Zurich have succeeded for the first time in tracking individual stem cells and their neuronal progeny over months within the intact adult brain. This study sheds light on how new neurons are produced throughout life.
The generation of new nerve cells was once thought to taper off at the end of embryonic development. However, recent research has shown that the adult brain...
Theoretical physicists propose to use negative interference to control heat flow in quantum devices. Study published in Physical Review Letters
Quantum computer parts are sensitive and need to be cooled to very low temperatures. Their tiny size makes them particularly susceptible to a temperature...
