AG426P – Belt Weigher Transmitter – Profibus

September 13, 2013

The PR426 Belt Weigher Transmitter connects with 1-4 strain gauge load cells fitted to a belt weigher mechanism from which it generates a calibrated weight signal. It also connects with a proximity switch or shaft encoder, from which it receives pulses in proportion to belt movement. From these two inputs and from calibration and control data held in its system memory it continually calculates the rate of flow of material over the belt and the total quantity of material transferred.Optionally, in applications where belt speed variations are insignificant, the indicator may operate from an internal tacho pulse simulator.



  • Security code protected calibration, totals and control parameters, all stored in non-volatile memory.
  • Profibus-DP communication to PLCs and computers.
  • Flow Rate calculation in Kgs/Hour or Tonnes/Hour.
  • Automatic Zero Adjustment.
  • Both Resettable and Non-Resettable Totals.
  • Adjustable filtering of both weight signal and tacho signal.
  • Local buttons/display provides access to all data settings.
  • Remote access to data and calibration via Profibus DP.
  • DIN Rail or wall mount options.
