Digital Transmitter Family For Weighing And Force Measurement With Multiple Industrial Ethernet Ports

Baykon TX2 DIGITAL TRANSMITTERSBaykon (Turkey) introduced their TX2 transmitter family, which is coming with different communication interfaces including CANopen. The product features several weighing functions.

The CANopen device is suitable for static or dynamic weighing and force measuring. It features weighing functions such as zeroing, tarring, power-on zero, net indication at power on, motion detection, etc. The company’s xFace Windows-based software enables configurable vibration suppression digital filter settings and calibration with test weight or electronic calibration without test weights (eCal). Via the CANopen interface the transmitter can communicate to a host controller, e.g. PLC or PC.

The TX2 digital transmitter family is designed for static or dynamic weighing and force measurement processes to provide fast and accurate digital data through RS-232C, RS-485, Ethernet TCP/IP and bus systems as Profibus, Modbus TCP, Modbus RTU, Profinet, CANopen, EtherNet/IP, EtherCAT, CC-Link, Powerlink.

The load cells implement a 24-bit delta-sigma ratiometric A/D conversion and 10-step adjustable digital adaptive filter. The conversion rate is up to 800 measurements per second. The device is powered by 10 VDC to 28 VDC. The temperature range is -15 °C to +55 °C and the DIN-rail mountable enclosure is IP20-rated.

Industrial Communication SystemsThe Industrial Electronics Handbook, Second Edition, Industrial Communications Systems combines traditional and newer, more specialized knowledge that helps industrial electronics engineers develop practical solutions for the design and implementation of high-power applications. Embracing the broad technological scope of the field, this collection explores fundamental areas, including analog and digital circuits, electronics, electromagnetic machines, signal processing, and industrial control and communications systems. It also facilitates the use of intelligent systems―such as neural networks, fuzzy systems, and evolutionary methods―in terms of a hierarchical structure that makes factory control and supervision more efficient by addressing the needs of all production components.

Enhancing its value, this fully updated collection presents research and global trends as published in the IEEE Transactions on Industrial Electronics Journal, one of the largest and most respected publications in the field. Modern communication systems in factories use many different―and increasingly sophisticated―systems to send and receive information. Industrial Communication Systems spans the full gamut of concepts that engineers require to maintain a well-designed, reliable communications system that can ensure successful operation of any production process.

Delving into the subject, this volume covers:

  • Technical principles
