The Control Console Package provides a % readout of the fill gate and controls the Open / Close percent for filling of the rail car. The selector switch controls the Spout winch Up / Down and the joy stick controls the spout telescope Up / Down. The console is mounted on the loading platform so the operator can make the necessary adjustments.
Monitor the % position of your gates for use in blending.
Prevents overloading / plugging of equipment.
PRINCIPAL OF OPERATION:
The PIXP and PIN4 position indicators with percent metering are designed to monitor the % amount your gates are open for blending and loading of equipment capacity.
PIXP is an explosion proof unit for use in hazardous locations in Grain Elevators, Mills and Plants.
PIN4 is a water tight unit for use outdoors where xproof enclosures are not required.
Operation is monitored by attaching the cable to the moveable gate. The movement of gate turns a potentiometer in housing to move the meter to percent of gate open. Unit will calibrate to gate size.
Position can be displayed locally with a percent pen meter or a 4-20ma input signal can go to an existing PLC system to display on the operators screen.

If you have a process with existing electric reclaim gates where you need to blend ingredients to feed a conveyor, Position Metering will accurately open gates to the same position every time. Also if you have the same ingredients in multiple bins that need to be blended together you can set the exact percent from each bin. This will allow you to control how much product is released to your reclaim conveyor and can prevent overloading or plugging.
