The BatchTron I’s many setup menus allow you to customize the batch controls on the fly.  Consequently it can fit almost any standard plant configuration.  Dry batch or wet batch (with mixer).  “Regular” accumulative scales or decumulative batching (aggregate bins on load cells).   If this model appears less versatile than you need, consider BatchTron II or III.
