MS8356 is suitable for including in dosing or batching systems by weight method. The input signal is formed by bridge weight sensor which is supplied by the device. The sensitivity and the power supply of the sensor are hardware fixed and have to be specified in the order code.
The analog output which is galvanically insulated from the analog input transmits the measured process variable. Most commonly used is uniform signal 0 ÷ 20 mA DC; 4 ÷ 20 mA DC ; 0 ÷ 10 V DC which has to be specified in the order code.
The device has four galvanically insulated from the measurement part digital inputs START, S1 and S2 and DUMP which are designed respectively to start the measurement, selection of specified in advance set-points with set of parameters for dosing and start dumping.
The controller has three digital outputs, which are user configurable.
Galvanically insulated from the other circuits RS485 by MODBUS RTU communication allows the controller to be included in systems for centralized monitoring and control of processes.
