The Bopp & Reuther MDS-PLC from HMA Instrumentation can control up to four measuring instruments and four valves. Parameters are configured and displayed via the MDS-PLC. The visualisation is available in various languages. It is possible to connect MID Series magnetic-inductive in conjunction with the UV14 converter module, FMD Series mass flow meters, OD Series oval wheel meters and other measuring instruments with pulse output.

The areas of application for all controllers include the controlling of dosing and filling processes. They are applied in dosing and filling machines of varying designs, for example linear fillers or rotary fillers. These measure the flow rate and control the valves.

The MID terminal configures the MID-MDS system and displays the programmed data and measured values. If required by the machine manufacturer, this function can also be assumed by the PLC that controls the machine.

The MID-MDS system consists of a rack and different plug-in cards. The cards have the following functions:

  • DR11master card (controls all processes)
  • LS23 valve card (controls the valves)
  • UV12 measuring card (converts the measuring signal of the MIDs into pulses)
  • QBxxx-cards (for connecting the cables)

MDS30: Up to six channels (control panel enclosure)
MDS49: Up to 12 channels (control panel enclosure or 19″” rack)
MDS84: Up to 18 channels (19″” rack)
Racks can be interconnected to achieve a larger number of channels (up to 548).
