The system can be set up as a single scale or multi scale batching system and will control up to 4 liquid meters instantaneously.
It supports multiple batch file processing and will create queue files that can be assigned for immediate batching or to be processed
at a later date. Some additional features include down-stream control with an unlimited number of load-out bins, mixer discharge
rate and grinder particle size settings for each ingredient. The user also has the option of manually operating the mill by double
clicking the mouse button on a motor, gate or screw conveyor.
During the batching cycle a graphic screen illustrates
the real-time inventory level for each bin, along with animated flow status indication. Interruption buttons on the screen are designed
to give the user full control during the batching process.
This software package is designed for the feed industry and
includes the Maximix Feed Management Software in addition to the complete automation process control software.
The PCM software
is also available with a custom control panel as a complete computerized batching system from dealers in US and Canada..
Complete Batching Control Panel
The HMI Process Control Manager software is specifically designed for mill designers, dealers or mill owners to integrate a PLC based fully computerized batching system into their custom control panel. It includes the HMI graphical software to interface the desktop computer with a Rice Lake 920i scale indicator and a Directlogic® PLC. By interfacing directly to the customers PLC we have designed this system to be extremely flexible and cost effective. The flexibility of the system is only limited to the feed mill batching requirements and to the imagination of the end user.
