GF Signet 5600 Series Batch Controller

Batch Controller
5600 Series

The Signet 5600 Batch Controller provides control capability and process fine-tuning in a familiar package. The programming interface uses a four-button keypad and an intuitive procedure for adjusting a batching system to the best performance possible.

The standard ¼ DIN package houses an analog display panel that features a batch status indicator with count-up or countdown dials. The backlit LCD displays flow rate and volume information and batch status, as well as calibration and setup instructions. The front of the unit is NEMA 4X/IP65 and is hard-coated, high-impact and UV resistant polycarbonate.

The 5600 operates on 12 to 24 volts ±10%, regulated, either AC or DC . Removable terminal connections make wiring the 5600 easy. Connect any Signet flow sensor with a frequency output, then add connections to two relays for two-stage shutdown or overrun alarm functions, connect a remote start-stop switch and use the end-of-batch pulse to trigger the next step in the process. A 4 to 20 mA output is also available. Advanced features include a user-set security code, an automatic calibration option, and overrun compensation.

• Permanent and resettable totalizers
• Non-volatile memory
• Easy batch volume entry
• Remote start, stop & resume
• Two-stage shutdown control
• Manual or automatic overrun compensation
• Estimates time to batch completion
• Overrun alarm and missing signal alarm
