Features


F160 is a weighing controller ideal for the use in a limited space such as the inside of a control panel. In addition to a high-accuracy amplifier with extremely low drift installed, various high-specification functions such as high-speed sampling, and the weighing sequence function and control input-output which are convenient for automatic weighing machines, are packed into a compact body.

Compact size that can realize integration into a control panel

67 (W) × 185 (H) × 120 (D) mm

High-speed sampling & high display resolution

High-speed A/D conversion and powerful digital processing capability of 1000 times/sec..
High display resolution of 1/10,000 is assured for all input ranges. (Internally 1/40,000)

Super low drift

Zero drift of 0.1μV/°C is realized by high-accuracy head amplifier for loadcell. (Typical value [Typ]: 0.08μV/°C)

Interface ideal for connection with PLC
One option interface can be selected from CC-Link or BCD output.

Equipped with small display unit and setting keys

It is of compact design, but a display unit and setting keys are equipped to check indicated values and set the main unit.
(Setting from the host such as PLC is made possible by installing an optional interface.)

Weighing sequence function

Feeding and discharging gates can be directly controlled only by giving weighing instructions.
Higher-speed weighing and control system line, which is not affected by PLC command timing, can be constructed.

Substantial functions that support weighing

– Automatic free fall compensation: Actual free fall fluctuations that are one of the key factors of weighing errors are automatically compensated.
– Zero tracking: The slow zero drift and the zero point shift caused by temperature fluctuations are automatically compensated.

Characteristic selectable powerful filters

Bessel low-pass filter to eliminate mechanical vibrations and moving average-type filter to prevent weight value drift are equipped.

Vertically or horizontally mountable fittings
The attached fittings can be mounted vertically or horizontally.

Detachable two-piece type terminal block

A space-saving, screw-type terminal block is adopted for the loadcell connection section. The terminal block is of the two-piece type that allows its removal from the main unit.
