is the feed rate I, from which the flow rate is determined. Fig. 2: The belt

Fig. 2: The belt load of the weighbridge is not legal for trade

The material is transported over a weighing platform located beneath the belt, limited by 2 carrying idlers. The load on the platform exerts a force on the load cell LC through one or more weighing idlers. The mea- suring displacement is approximately 0.2 mm. The measuring rolls are linked with the frame construction via parallel plate springs. The load cell output voltage is proportional to the platform load. It is recorded with a suitable measuring amplifier.

The load distribution on a single-roll weighbridge is shown by the white triangle. Only half of the force from the weight of the material is passed into the measuring idler. The following conversion formula applies to the effective bridge length with single-roll weighbridges:

Leff = Lg / 2

Leff = effective weighing platform length Lg = total weighing platform length

Weighing platforms with more than one weighing idler will have a different factor than 1/2.

Therefore the belt load in kg/m totals:

QB = total load on the weighbridge.

QB = total load on the weighbridge.

Turning recording the total or setpoint specification on or off

This can be selected with the P02.06 Feeder Start and FALSE Feedrate Setpoint parameters (however, only with charging systems).

Monitoring for minimum and maximum limit values

For feed rate, belt load and belt speed The limit values, relay outputs and event classes can be separate- ly defined for all 6 possibilities.

Mains power failure

Scale data, calibration data, counter readings and quantity pulses not yet issued are kept for an unlimited time after a mains power failure and the time is kept for approx. 5 days.

Belt speed

The belt speed is recorded with a speed pick-up.

Zero settings

The zero point fault of the belt weigher comes from soiling that adheres permanently or from other con- stant factors. The zero setting records the zero point fault on an empty belt over one or several whole- number belt circuits. This corrects the regular measurement in normal operation.

Zero setting takes place with an empty belt conveyor with a program which runs automatically.

Zero setting should be started manually at regular intervals if automatic operation is not preselected.

The maximum permitted zero setting correction is monitored.

Zero drop out

Suppressing totalizing for measurements around zero so that the counter remains constant during no- load belt operation. The function can be turned off.

General Diagram

Tare

Taring is a calibration procedure that determines the impact that the empty belt has on the measuring signal, the basic tare. After taring, the total remains unchanged over one belt circuit with the empty belt. Call-up is password protected.

Measuring at dispatch: VAP

The weighing platform is not located directly at the material discharge point for design reasons. This means that if the belt load changes, the measurement for the feed rate will not precisely equal the cur- rent feed rate at the dispatch point. Measurement is shifted to the material discharge point using a spe- cial velocity-dependent delay element. No special measuring sensors are required to do this.

Batching mode

Batch mode conveys a preset amount of material. The conveying process ends once the batch setpoint has been reached. The batching process can be controlled via the belt conveyor drive or bin feeder.

The turn-off point and dribble feed utilization can be adapted automatically.

BIC belt influence compensation and belt drift

This function makes it possible for the belt to record and compensate for dynamic zero point influence with an additional belt circuit sensor and a metallic marking flag in the belt. This increases the scale's short-term accuracy.

Display filters

For feed rate, belt load and belt speed

Maintenance guidelines by overlaying an event in the display

for the voltage supply's operating time, the scale's operating time and the next zero setting.

Calibration

It is not necessary to calibrate the pick-up input. Certain design data such as on the load cells, velocity sensors and conveyor belt inclination must be entered. The system uses this data to calculate all stan- dardizations required for the displays. It can be controlled or readjusted using two different methods.

Control with material: the result of a material inspection is entered into the system and it serves to correct the measurement result.

Control with calibration weight: standardization is controlled or can also be corrected if the technical data (such as the lever ratio or belt conveyor inclination) is not precisely known. In later operation, the program also becomes suitable for verifying mechanical changes such as the weighing platform being twisted due to movement of the foundations.

8.38.38.38.3 TareTareTareTare TWTWTWTW

The taring program uses one or several whole-number belt circuits to record the zero point fault of the weighfeeder. This value is used to correct the ongoing measuring results in normal operation. We should distinguish taring from zero setting.

Taring:

Recording of the base tares (i.e., the weight of such things as the mechanism or belt conveyor) when starting up, servicing and doing maintenance

Zero setting:

Recording the operational zero deviation such as soiling

The maximum correction stroke of the zero setting program is limited while that of the tare program is not. After taring, the permissible correction deviation of the zeroing program is based on the new reference value.

Conditions:

1. There may not be any material on the belt conveyor under any circumstances. The prefeeder can be controlled with Feeder ON/OFF function.

2. Clean the scale's mechanical equipment within the scales zone. Deposits may remain that develop again immediately in regular operation.

3. Switch off batch mode

4. The belt conveyor must be running. Notice is given automatically.

You can use this program to control the turndown of the system. This is done by loading the weighing plat- form with a known calibration weight and automatically calculating the average platform load over one or several whole-number belt circuits.

Evaluating the results

Error < 1 %

Set/Act = 0.99 - 1.01 The scales are in good working order and no further actions are necessary.

Error < 5 %

Set/Act = 0.95 - 1.05 Enter the Set/Act value in parameter D 02. Of course, this only makes sense if the result of a material control has not yet been included in the parameter.

Error > 5 %

Set/Act < 0.95 or Set/Act > 1.05 Departures of several percent indicate incorrectly entered technical data (such as levers or not knowing precise belt inclinations) or mechanical errors (such as alignment or tension).

The current value of the P04.02 Range Correction parameter is not taken into account in the check. This is why the control program will show the same KOR fault quotients after correcting with the value input in

P04.02.

A technical data sheet is part of the scope of delivery. It contains all important nominal and calibration data acc. specification. We will therefore list only a few important pieces of information and some recommenda- tions at this point. It makes sense to go through all of the parameters and consider the value entered.

Parameter block Dialog Behaviour:

Dialog language, display units and availability or security of the function block functions. The parameters values will be converted automatically if the dimensions are changed.

Parameter block Rated Data:

Pulses per length P02.04 is important to calibration.

The dimension data should be adapted to the Nominal Flow Rate. Flow Rate Units P02.01 resolution should

not be greater than 4

The output frequency should not be any more than 10 Hz if an external volumeter is connected.

5 decimals for a quiet display.

Parameter block Calibration Data:

All calibration and evaluation data are important and must be entered exactly. Most of the details can be found in the technical data sheets. The effective platform length and the inclination of the belt must be measured on-site. The inclination of the belt may only be entered for systems in which the load cells are arranged perpendicular to the belt. On vertically-installed load cells, the effective angle equals 0°.

load cells, the effective angle equals 0°. The inclination of the belt can be determined easily

The inclination of the belt can be determined easily using a spirit level and a measuring tape. It is advanta- geous to measure multiple times and to take the mean value of these measurements (h1, h2, …) as the value 'h'.

The Angle P03.07 angle is then a = tan -1 (h/l)

For angle < 20°, a = 55 h/l applies

Parameter block Calibrat. Results:

No input is needed. P04.02 Range Correction should be on 1 at initial calibration. We recommend that once you have entered the rated data you check whether the load cell becomes overloaded by the rated feed rate.

1. Switch on the belt conveyor and scales. The switch-on process depends on the preselected Feeder Start P02.06 source.

2. A rotating cross appears in the header as a progress indicator. If not, there is no clearance or the ON button was not pressed.

3. Take any event messages which appear into account and remove the error.

4. Check the following:

Tachometer: The output frequency of the tachometer generator has to be less than 3,000 Hz with acti- vated measurement. The value must approximately correspond to the information in the data sheet. Load cell: The non-standardized initial value for the load cell amplifier may not be larger than 2.85 mV/V even at nominal load of the weighing platform. It must change if the weighing platform is placed under load (e.g. the calibration weight). If the value is too large, the load cell is overloaded. If the value is nega- tive, the load cell may be wrongly connected. The load cell load in percent, sourced from the sum of the load cell nominal capacities, should not be larger than 100 % with nominal belt load.

12.412.412.412.4 TestTestTestTest WithWithWithWith CalibrationCalibrationCalibrationCalibration WeightWeightWeightWeight

The test with a calibration weight makes sense because

1. mechanical or electrical faults are possible

2. calibration data can be unreliable (for instance, the leverage is not precisely known) and it is difficult to measure the belt inclination

3. data may be incorrectly entered

The calibration weight should be between 30 %

1. Enter Calibration Weight P03.08. On beltweighers with parallel leaf-spring guides, the effective calibration weight is the same as the actual value. In other cases, the effective calibration weight can be taken from the data sheet, or can be calcu- lated according to the chapter details/data flow images. The inclination of the conveyor belt has no effect on the effective calibration weight.

2. Call up the CW: Span Calibration program.

100 % of the platform nominal load and be accurate.

Some Possible Causes of Fault:

Warping of the weighing platform, improper alignment, interferences in the load cell cable.

If you suspect any of these faults, repeat the check with a different weight.

Non-linearity is an indication of such faults, linear faults are more likely to be cause by incorrect data.

Startup operation

12.512.512.512.5 BeltBeltBeltBelt VelocityVelocityVelocityVelocity CheckCheckCheckCheck

The velocity sensor frequency generator can be actuated in a number of different ways.

1. with a frictional wheel on the lower carrying run of the belt or

2. with the shaft of the drive motor

In the first case, the value Pulses per length P02.04 depends on the exact diameter of the frictional wheel; in the second case, it depends on the gear and looping factor of the belt. So the velocity measurement accuracy should be checked.

1. Establish the velocity of the conveyor belt using a stopwatch and a tape measure. Make several mea- surements to be sure and then calculate the mean.

2. Read the speed display over the same period of time wherever feasible.

3. Compare these readings with one another and correct P02.04 wherever necessary. (new value = prior value * speed measured/speed read)

This procedure can also be used to determine unknown characteristic values.

Check the space between the recording sensor and crown gear and reduce wherever necessary if there is a known Pulses per length and large deviations.

Each test or calibration with calibration weights can only approximate the actual operating conditions. A high- ly accurate continuous measurement can be achieved only by making several measurements with bulk ma- terial and a subsequent correction. It is corrected with Range Correction P04.02. The following image shows an example of an arrangement for verifying a belt-based continuous throughput.

for verifying a belt-based continuous throughput. Fig. 7: Arrangement for verification with bulk material The

Fig. 7: Arrangement for verification with bulk material

The following items must be observed:

1. The route from the continuous measuring point to the collecting point for the material must be clean

2. Any available diverters must not divert material.

3. If there are any feed screws or air slides between the weighing platform and the continuous measuring point, material must be conveyed for approx. 1/2 hour before any verification measurements are made This will allow the usual material build-ups to form on the conveying elements.

4. Dedusting must be set to a minimum

5. The containers or vehicles in which the material is transported onto a (legal-for-trade) commercial scales must be cleaned and re-weighed (tared) before each filling. The commercial scales must be sufficiently accurate to measure the quantity MW.

The new value P04.02 new is calculated from the old value P04.02 old using the counter progression MA from the continuous measurement and the mass MW calculated from the control scales as follows:

P04.02 new = P04.02 old * MW / MA

For example:

Old value of P04.02 = 1

A material quantity of MW = 4.9 t is conveyed over a time period of 15 minutes. The counter progression MA read off the device is 5.0 t.

P04.02 new = 1 * 4.9/5.0 = 0.98

The calculated value should be keyed into P04.02.

Tab. 1 : Using parameter sets

Note: Parameters not required for an application can be faded out or declared 'read only' using EasyServe in expert mode. EasyServe compiles a list of visible parameters that form an integral part of the system docu- mentation. They, together with this manual, make up the relevant documentation of the control system for an application. The parameter list in the operating manual contains all of the parameters, regardless of their actual use in an application.

In addition to the parameter set stored in the scales, we recommend that after commissioning you keep a copy of the parameter set in a mass storage medium using EasyServe.

The parameters are sorted into blocks for purposes of clarity. The parameter can be explicitly identified by means of its block and the number in the block in the corresponding version of the scales software:

P01.03: Parameter block 1, 3rd parameter

Parameters

Note: Each parameter also has a unique number (ID) with which it can be addressed over the serial inter- face. This number can be seen as a Tooltip in EasyServe when passing over the parameter and can be out- put in the parameter printout.

Gaps can appear between block numbers and parameters within the blocks.

In rare cases, the number of a parameter may change.
