BATCHTRON III - features

BatchTron-III uses a powerful industrial PLC, not a computer, for rock solid performance and tremendous reliability as well as lightning fast batching power. It operates completely automatically at high speed and can also be run manually or part manually when the need arises.

Of the hundreds of BatchTron and other PLC systems in service over 15 years, very few PLCs and 3 touch screens have ever failed.

Accuracy and speed

The fastest and most accurate batching you have ever seen.


BatchTron-III panels have only three manual switches - POWER key switch, EMERGENCY STOP push button and RUN lighted pushbutton.  All other functions, such as material feeds and conveyor belts, are controlled from graphic touch pads on the screen.  The full-load-cell scales, water and admix meters are all displayed on the touch screen, eliminating the need for separate indicators. A powerful Omron PLC controls material feeders, discharges scales and runs the mixers, allowing totally unattended operation. 

Tremendous power, plus unheard-of reliability in a simple console or wall-mount cabinet.


Operation is simplicity itself.  Like the pages of a book, BatchTron-III's many screens unfold at the touch of a finger.  The "page" arrows at the corner of every screen carry you through the control screens to menus for every function. Enter values on the keyboard and return to the batch operator screen.

The BatchTron family even protects your operation after a power failure by returning to the point where it stopped, ready for you to press the RUN button and start the plant machinery again.  All these features and much more make BatchTron the best value ever in batching systems.
