Schenck Process Disocont Tersus continuous feeder control

Friday, 07 January, 2011 | Supplied by: Schenck Process Australia Pty Ltd



Schenck Process has added intuitive touch-screen operation, intelligent interfaces and optimised modularity to its Disocont Tersus measurement, control and regulation for device continuous feeding.

The modular structure features several optional add-ons. Users can simply combine the units they require to produce an optimised and cost-effective solution for their particular application. The software has been enhanced to automate additional functions. The modular system adapts to applications of any complexity and for ease of use the controls for standard applications have been reduced to the bare essentials.

Users can deploy the system in such a way as to fulfil their exact requirements. The Disocont Tersus system is already available for loss-in-weight feeders and screw weighfeeders. Special units will soon follow for weighfeeders, mass flow metering and feeding units, solid flow meters and feeders, conveyor belt scales and hopper scales.

The electronic unit can be integrated in an existing scales mechanism to form a compact functional unit.

The intelligent optimisation of the interfaces substantially reduces the engineering workload. Only one unit needs to be planned, there is no need for a switch cabinet and the amount of wiring required is minimal. All the engineer has to do is lay the power supply and data cables.

For maximum flexibility, the system comes with different housings for on-site use and installation in existing switch cabinets. The operating module may be a permanent part of the equipment, or a mobile unit. The control system may be wired or wireless depending on requirements.

With Disocont Tersus, users can see exactly what is happening at a glance and make all the necessary settings. All functions are graphically illustrated on the colour display, from commissioning to set-up and diagnostics. In short feed runs, the system is adapted to a change of bulk material with the help of the program. In continuous operation, the system optimises itself automatically.

The system comes with plug-in fieldbus communication modules that enable it to share data with the control system. A PC or notebook can be connected to the system for service purposes and LAN, WLAN and Bluetooth connections are also available as standard.

The communication bus inside the scales allows all the components to be flexibly positioned. Service engineers can replace all the units without any need for readjustment or reconfiguration.
