Every component of the checkweigher from Fine-Spect must meet the requirements of food production, such as being completely covered with foam or cleaned by a powerful stream of water. With an equipment protection level of IP66 and its watertight, hygienic plugs, the FIT7A offers ideal preconditions for these requirements. Fine-Spect chose the HBM load cell in part because of its high availability, precision and speed. FIT7A features extensive signal processing functions with different trigger measurements. The notch filters eliminate interference from the motor and belt conveyor. The load cell also communicates with the PLC via CANopen so that the checkweigher is able to display measured values, statistics and analysis on a touchscreen. That provides important results and insight into how to optimize the production process and minimize rejects.
