Belt scale weighing systems are essential to most bulk materials handling facilities, from food processing plants to cement manufacturing and mining sites. The new Thermo Scientific Ramsey Flex electronic integration solution enables reliable, cost-effective, easy-to-use weighing with bespoke functionality.

Ramsey Flex is the “brain” of the belt scale and operator interface, enabling process management and control in the field, local control room, or remotely. It can be used for new belt scale or retrofit projects, with Thermo Scientific belt scales or those of many other suppliers. It can also be used for single-conveyor projects or complex multi-scale systems.

Key features of Ramsey Flex include:

• A large, touch screen HMI, making it easy for operators to access information, switch between functions, and perform operations

• Industry 4.0 connectivity, including compatibility with MODBUS and PROFIBUS, for centralized control room operation or remote access

• Multiple options designed to improve cost efficiency in various applications, including the ability to share one integrator across two belt scales, or to use a blind integrator where HMI is not required

• Multi-language display for efficient training and support, including Arabic, Russian, Portuguese, Simplified Chinese, and others
