K-Tron introduces the Premier LSR Controller. It consolidates several applications into one system allowing the LSR to control either a Premier self contained loader or a single central receiver for pneumatically conveying a wide variety of bulk materials. The controller is lo-cally mounted with all 24 V(DC) unit devices pre-wired. An auto-switching power supply accepts 115 or 230 V(AC). The front panel of the controller includes a potentiometer to set draw times, on/off switch, and multicoloured LEDs indicate power/alarm, loading status and dump status. Available materials of construction for the enclosure are polycarbonate and stainless steel. The LSR Controller allows nine different operating modes selectable with internal rotary switch and 10-position dip switch. It provides precise, reliable control filling by time or level and various discharge configurations including gravity or powered gate. Control parameters include pulse cleaning, purge (line clearance) valve, ratio loading, level sensor, fill valve, by-pass (vacuum breaker) valve and one vacuum pump motor when controlling a single central receiver. Using a serial connection the LSR can also be networked to external devices.
