Laumas’ New Digital Weight Transmitter with EtherCAT port



Laumas Elettronica S.r.l. (Italy) - TLBETHERCAT has an integrated EtherCAT port so it can be easily integrated in an EtherCAT network for AUTOMATIC AND NON-AUTOMATIC WEIGHING APPLICATIONS.

TLBETHERCAT can be used for all weighing applications where there is a Programmable Controller (PLC) with an EtherCAT port. For example, TLBETHERCAT can be used for all weighing applications where there is a BECKHOFF Programmable Controller (PLC) with an EtherCAT port. TLBETHERCAT can be used for all weighing applications where there is a OMRON Programmable Controller with an EtherCAT port.

Thanks to its slim form (only 22 mm wide!), you can mount many TLBETHERCAT units on Omega DIN Rail in a very little space. TLBETHERCAT has an integrated display and 4 keys for easily configuring, testing, weighing verifying and programming.

TLBETHERCAT can be used in both following ways:

  1. You can use TLBETHERCAT to read the load cells signal and send weight counts (up to 1000000) to the PLC and proceed with all the calibrations (zero, sample weight verify, net visualization…) on the PLC.
  2. You can calibrate the weighing system directly on TLBETHERCAT (with instrument display and keys or via EtherCAT commands) and send to the PLC the calibrated weight. In this case PLC can also send commands to TLBETHERCAT, e.g. Net visualization, Semiautomatic Zero, etc.

TLBETHERCAT is CE-M approvable and it has been approved according to 2009/23/EC; OIML R76:2006; EN45501:1992.

TLBETHERCAT has an optional memory alibi that can store up to 85000 weighings (Gross Weight, Net Weight, Tare, Predetermined Tare). The memory can be accessed via ETHERCAT commands from the PLC or directly, so to realize a complete traceability of weighings also in legal applications for trade according to 2009/23/EC; OIML R76:2006; EN45501:1992.

TLBETHERCAT has also 2 integrated digital inputs and 3 integrated digital relay outputs that can be read and written by the PLC so to realize a little I/O unit. And it has also 1 RS485 Modbus RTU configurable serial port.
