BATCHTRON I - the little batch controller with big performance
Get best value out of your plant by running it with the best controls. Re-engineered
from the top down, BatchTron I has all the features that make its bigger
brothers so powerful and easy to use, while keeping the cost to an
absolute minimum. From ready-mix to portable and products plants,
BatchTron I gives you outstanding value for money.
Now with a color touch screen.
Unattended operation - no operator needed in most plants - BatchTron can react
to batch calls from mud bin sensors, demand stations or Mobile Control tablet
Eliminate expensive down time.
BatchTron's PLC and touch screen gives you reliability that
just isn’t possible with computer-based systems.
What is a PLC?
- Eliminate batch weight
errors and wasted product with automatic self-tuning that keeps your
plant at peak trim all the time.
- Programmable alarms
for plant functions such as conveyors and mixer not running, gates and
- All the controls - all of
them - are right on the screen, making broken switches and loose
wires a thing of the past, and it can be upgraded on-line. So
- No extra cost scale
indicators either. The scale displays are all on the touch
screen, making it even more reliable, and they’re all digital;
no error between external weight indicators and the control system.
- No fans, no inlet for fine
dust. Even the best filters let in the finest dust, which gets
into the connectors and stalls the system. We know the
problem. We don’t let it happen.
- Pre-programmed to fit many
plants. Whether yours is a dry plant, premix plant with mixer,
has an aggregate holding hopper over the mixer or just a belt feed,
you can select it from the menus. The number of aggregates,
cements, waters and admixtures determine the expansion required and
the cost. Don’t pay for what you don’t need.
- Upgrade at any time.
Expansion units can be plugged in, giving you instant upgrade to
more ingredients and more features if you need them later.
- Download new software.
With STI (Service and Training by Internet) or modem service, you
can connect to our upgrade service instantly. Change from dry
plant to premix or vice versa. Take advantage of new features
when you need them.
color touch screen
We have upgraded
BatchTron I with a 7" color touch screen
touch screen, larger than the previous 5.8", with clear animated graphics to picture your plant as it
operates, making it even easier to use. Several languages are available.
Due to advancements in touch screen technology, this all takes place without any
increase in cost.
Touch and go
Load a formula, choose the batch size and press GO. It’s that easy
to make a batch. Everything else is automatic. Or touch a
feed button to feed aggregates into the scale. Touch the discharge
button to discharge the scale. Start or stop the mixer; on-screen
buttons allow individual automatic or manual operation of every
function, not just one AUTO/MAN switch that forces you to run manually
when a fault occurs. This allows minor breakdowns like faulty
limit switches to be bypassed without affecting the rest of the system
and keeps you running automatically except for the one function that you
bypassed. Now you can program sequences of different formulas too;
for instance, different colored mixes for block and pavers.
Enter, retrieve, modify and copy formulas from one memory location to
another. Modify ingredients or formulas on the fly. It’s
fast, accurate and easy with BatchTron’s touch keyboard.
