The machine|system is intended exclusively for weighing. It serves for weighing and classifying as well as transporting away conveyed goods with the dimensions and weights stated in the specifications. Weighed products (e.g. molded parts) are checked for compliance with a weight tolerance. The programmed weigher classifies the weighed products based on preconfigured tolerances > and generates a potential-free signal (correct filling| incorrect filling). The weigher will determine and output one weight value for each weighed item.

Any other use beyond this is considered improper use.


The scale is a measurement instrument and must be treated as such. No objects may be stored atop the weighing table. Impacts and mechanical forces on and against the weighing platform must be absolutely avoided. –
The machine was designed for industrial use only. Foodstuffs|Edibles may only be weighed while packaged. –
Non-solid products can only be weighed while packaged. –
The evaluation of the weighing results is the responsibility of the machine operator.

10 Operating instructions Weighing in motion User Information Electrical Hazards Electrical hazard during all work on the machine: – Assembly and installation – Commissioning – Cleaning and maintenance  WARNING – Service and repairs – Disassembly The voltages at the machine can lead to serious injuries that can be deadly under some circumstances and|or damage the machine. Before any work is performed on the machine, the machine itself as well as any upstream or downstream components must be disconnected from power in accordance with VDE guidelines.

Interrupt the compressed air supply (optional).

Take all steps necessary to secure the equipment against unauthorized power-up.  WARNING Electrical hazard when opening the machine. The voltages at the machine can lead to serious injuries that can be deadly under some circumstances and|or damage the machine. The main switch must be set to “OFF” before opening the control cabinet. The control cabinet must be securely locked after completion of the work. The control cabinet must be securely locked during normal operation. The machine may only be opened, installed and connected by trained and qualified personnel.

WARNING
Electrical hazard to personnel touching parts that are energized due to faults. Electrical hazard from the application of external high voltage (incorrect operation). The voltages at the machine can lead to serious injuries that can be deadly under some circumstances and|or damage the machine. External high voltage can cause electrical shocks which can lead to burns, injuries and death in some circumstances. All metallic parts that can be touched by the operator are integrated into the grounding conductor system.

The grounding conductor system must always be properly connected by the operator.

The grounding conductor system of the entire machine must be inspected on a regular basis at intervals to be specified by the operator. CAUTION
Electrical hazard due to electrostatic events, i.e. sparks or disruptive discharges resulting from a high potential difference in an electrically insulated material that cause a very brief high electrical current pulse. Injuries due to electrical discharges and|or damage to electronic components. Use only transport media approved by Sartorius.

Work on electrical components may only be performed by a qualified electrician.

Operating instructions Weighing in motion 11 Mechanical Dangers CAUTION Danger from an unexpected startup or functional process due to: – Intended machine functions – Control errors and|or operating errors. Injuries from shearing action. Injury from being caught and entangled, e.g. by the transport medium. Injuries from being crushed and hit. Any rejection device present must be secured through physical measures in such a way that it is not possible to reach into the rejection area.

If it is not possible to secure the rejection area, it must be ensured that only personnel with appropriate safety training is permitted to operate the machine. The operators must have read and understood the technical documents. CAUTION
Danger from electromagnetic fields due to a lack of electromagnetic compatibility (EMC).

Unexpected or faulty function sequences. Disruptions in the surrounding machines. EMC-compliant design of the machine. EMC testing of the machine. CAUTION
Danger from connection and transition points between the machine and customersupplied equipment. Injuries from hands being crushed. Hazard areas must be secured by the operator. Transition points must be designed safely: It must not be possible to reach into such areas, and if this cannot be prevented through physical measures, it must be prevented by means of safety equipment.

CAUTION
Danger from pieces of clothing getting caught on or entangled in moving parts or machine transport media.

Injuries from clothing being entangled. Closely fitting clothing reduces the risk of clothing being caught or wound up. For all work: Wear safety shoes and closely fitting clothing. Hair and jewelry must be worn such that they cannot be entangled by moving parts. If required, personal protective equipment should be worn (PPE). CAUTION

2.3 Removing|Installing the Weigh Cell Transport Lock Load receptors for devices WM6..., WM35GEP... and WM35IEP.. are secured using 1 overload protection. Load receptors for devices WM60..., WM120... and module WM35LFP... are secured using 4 overload protection units. The overload protection units are removed after the machine has been set up and before commissioning. Loosen and remove the covers (SW 13 and/or 19). Using the supplied metal strip WM35GEP..., WM35IEP... (thickness: 0.3 mm) spacing (0.3 mm) WM35LFP... (thickness: 0.3 mm) spacing (0.3 mm) WM60... (thickness: 0.3 mm) spacing (0.3 mm) WM120...

(thickness: 0.3 mm) spacing (0.3 mm) set the spacing between the screw and the load receptors. Secure the setting using the locknut.

In normal operation, the air gap set by the metal strip is used as an overload protection. Note: The metal strip is located in a PE pouch in the control cabinet. Replace covers and re-secure the screws. Before transporting the machine, make sure that the load receptors are secured using the overload protection (screws). Transport to the Installation Site ATTENTION
Never lift the machine at the transport belt! Only use the sling points (see image) for transport. When you operate the machine for the first time, after internal transport or after a long idle time, you must carry out test runs in all available machine operating modes.

Operating instructions Weighing in motion 29 Product Description 4. Product Description 4.1 Application Range, Description 4.1.1 Overview The WM modules WM6|35|60|120, when used in conjunction with the WM 22 evaluation electronics, combine to form a checkweigher for determining the weight or completeness of products.

All WM modules offer a variety of interfaces. This enables smooth, centralized integration of WM modules into existing or new quality assurance systems, for 100% traceability in production monitoring.

4.1.2 Machine Design A WM module consists of the following design elements: § Weigher frame with control unit § Weigh cell § Indicator § Control electronics Optional structural components include, for example: § Touch guard (optional) § Reject or sorting mechanism (optional) Products are transported via a conveyor belt and weighed while passing over the weighing belt. The weighing belt and the customer infeed and outfeed belts must all have the same belt speed so that the parts to be checked are transferred smoothly to the weighing belt and then moved away again. The individual components are described in more detail below: Weigher frame with control unit Solid tower housing of steel, powder-coated, protection class IP 65.

The weigher frame is available in different heights so that you can implement different transport heights. The desired working height can be adjusted in increments of 50 mm, from 450 to 1100 mm (special heights available upon request). Threaded leveling feet are provided for fine adjustment of the height. The display and operating terminal is built into the control unit. Weigh cell Strain gauge weigh cells from Sartorius, characterized by the following features: – Maximum precision and extremely short stabilization time – Maximum stability, robustness and overload protection –
State-of-the-art electronics with digital signal processing for particularly effective filtering
