Siemens’ Compact Weighing Module for peripheral systems - Fast, accurate measurements of weights and forces



Siemens (Germany) - The new Siwarex WP321 from the Siemens Industry Sector is a compact, versatile weighing module for the distributed I/O Simatic ET 200SP. With its freely configurable design, Siwarex WP321 is ideally suited for platform scales, for filling level measurement in storage silos and bunkers and also for weighing tasks in potentially explosive areas up to zone 2.

With its compact design and flexible scope for application, Siwarex WP321 provides a high-speed, accurate solution for measuring weights and forces, with a resolution of up to +/- two million parts and a measuring rate of ten milliseconds.

The narrow module width of just 15 millimeters permits flexible, individual weighing applications within even the smallest of spaces. Customer and industry-specific solutions for weighing processes are quickly and simply implemented with the aid of the project engineering package and the “ready-for-use” application. This allows the scale parameters to be simply accessed and edited using a special function module from the CPU.

Using the Siwatool software, the scale is parameterized and commissioned directly on site. Three freely definable limit values provide additional process reliability in application.

Back-up files can be created by the user, simplifying the exchange of modules for repairs or servicing, and simultaneously enhancing plant availability.
