The IND780batch stand-alone batch controller from Mettler Toledo, Columbus, Ohio, is said to provide advanced batching control technology while adhering to the ISA SP-88 Batch Standard. It is a powerful and flexible stand-alone terminal for single or multi-scale batching. It provides both manual or fully-automated (machinecontrolled) batching control.
Manual mode leads operators through set formulation recipes of up to 999 ingredients, using tolerance checking, material identification via barcode input, and operator prompting. Automatic control handles up to 28 ingredients with recipe-specific control, including conditional control tasks, go-to commands, recipe rescaling, timing functions, and control of discrete inputs and outputs to allow the controller to interact with other equipment in the process.
