General Information

Introduction

The D030 is a straightforward but basic, panel mount batch controller. The operator can enter a batch quantity easily or execute repeating batches. During the batch, the preset value is displayed as well as the batched (or remaining) quantity and the units of measurement. The automatic self-learning overrun correction will ensure an accurate result for each batch again.

Display

The display has large 17mm (0.67”) and 8mm (0.31”) digits which are used to display the batched quantity and the preset value simultaneously. On-screen engineering units are easily configured from a comprehensive menu. A seven-digit resettable “day total” is available as well as an eleven-digit non-resettable accumulated total. All are backed up in EEPROM memory every minute.

The display is a transflective type, which means that a high contrast reading is guaranteed, even in full sunlight. The D030 has a smart display update function incorporated. Related to the lower temperatures, the update frequency of the LCD is tuned automatically to achieve a readable display even at -40°C / -40°F

Power requirements

The basic power supply for the D030 is 8 – 30V DC. Several other power supplies are possible: With the 24V AC/DC and 115 – 230V AC power supplies, an 8.2 / 12 / 24V DC sensor supply is offered. For analog sensors, a 4 – 20mA input loop-powered version is available. Finally, we offer a long-life lithium battery with a life expectancy that will last up to five years.

Configuration

All configuration settings are accessed via a simple operator menu which can be password protected. Each setting is clearly indicated with an alphanumerical description, which avoids confusing abbreviations. Once familiar with one D-series product, you will be able to program all models in all series without a manual. All settings are safely stored in EEPROM memory in the event of sudden power failure.

Fluidwell D030 DIN Panel Mount – Batch Controller with one control input

The Fluidwell D030 DIN Panel Mount Batch Controller is a straightforward but basic, panel mount batch controller. The operator can enter a batch quantity easily or execute repeating batches. During the batch, the preset value is displayed as well as the batched (or remaining) quantity and the units of measurement. The automatic self-learning overrun correction will ensure an accurate result for each batch again.

The D030 accepts most pulse and analog input signals for volumetric flow or mass flow measurement. The input signal type can be selected by the user in the configuration menu without having to adjust any sensitive mechanical dip-switches, jumpers, or trimmers. The analog input is available with linear and square root calculation and even as 4 – 20mA input loop powered.

Control output

One output is available for one-stage control of smaller batch volumes. The output signal can be a passive NPN, active PNP, or a robust, highly isolated electro-mechanical relay (NO/NC).

Enclosures

The D030 is supplied in a unique, robust IP66, IP67 (NEMA Type4X) class panel mount front enclosure made of die-cast aluminum, based on a popular DIN-sized enclosure of 144 x 72mm. The front enclosure withstands powerful water jets and even total immersion. The maximum thickness of the panel is 6mm (1/4”). The D-Series is the better alternative for your existing, not waterproof, front panel-mounted indicators
