Product outline

F820 is a weighing indicator designed for industrial weighing system.
F820 has high technical specifications, equipped with various functions like high-precision amplifier with ultra-low drift, high-speed sampling, weighing sequential control functions, control I/O useful for automated weighing machines, and so on.
With using special PC software, setting of the controller can be performed while monitoring the process in curve/waveform; thus, the time required for initial setup can be greatly saved.


Visualize the weighing process!

Fluctuations of weight can be displayed and monitored in curves. Since waveform and I/O status can be monitored at the same time, you can find out the cycle time and check weight fluctuations when SP1, 2, CMP signal turns ON/OFF.


Enlarged waveform display
You can select and zoom a section to check in zoom.
With the enlarged view, you can check if weight readings is stable enough and if Set Points and the sampling rate are set properly.



Filter effect
Filter settings can be changed, and the effect of filters can be simulated on PC to check if noise and vibration are effectively attenuated.



Edit/save settings
Settings of F820 can be edited and saved on PC (saved in CSV format).
It is convenient to save the settings for backup and export it to other units.



Statistics


Cumulative weight is calculated. Statistic like maximum, minimum, average (mean) weights are also calculated and displayed in this mode.

Logging


Waveform display to monitor weight fluctuations over a long period of time.
A maximum of 72 hours data recording.

Features

High-performance filters to attenuate vibration
Fast and accurate weight measurement can be achieved in an environment with a lot of vibration. Digital low-pass filter and moving average filter can be adjusted in fine increment.


High-speed sampling & high-resolution display
It is equipped with an A/D converter with the sampling rate of 1200 times/sec. and a high-speed digital processor (sampling speed can be changed to 300 times/sec. as well). Also, high display resolution of 1/10000 is guaranteed in all input range.


Ultra-low drift
With high-precision amplifier, ultra-low drift of 0.1μV/℃ has been achieved!


Store 100 sets (codes) of settings
Up to 100 sets of parameter settings including, Final, CMP., Free Fall Compensation and so on are stored on internal memory. By key control or sending a signal from external devices, you can switch from one setting to others.

Measurement sequence function
Sequential control is possible without PLC and other external devices. By setting various parameters and using various timers, you can configure sophisticated weighing system.

■ Feed and discharge gate control
F820 has sequence control functions useful for direct control of feed or discharge gate like auto feed adjustment in case the total weight is under the target weight.

■ Twin net weigher mode
F820 is equipped with functions useful for twin net weigher (bagging machines) such as “clamp” signal output, alternative discharge and so on.
