Frequency Input Batch/Ratio Controller, Tailored for Mass Flow Meters

The 515 BR03 application is a batch ratio controller for delivery of preset quantities at preset quantities as preset ratio’s using mass frequency inputs.

Batch control can operate in preset or on-off modes, while flow control can be set to various loop control modes.

This batch ratio controller provides the operator with clear local readout including flowrate deviation and can be controlled via communications in more automated systems. There is quick access to commonly used preset values directly from the front panel if access has been authorised.

The PI control of the process flow is via a 4-20mA proportional valve or pump controller. It has integral wind-up protection, a deadband, output hold and ramp time that can be programmed to reduce wear on valves and actuators and provide for bumpless operation.


There are three types of control modes in which the process flow is dependent on the main flow. These are RATIO, BLEND-1 and BLEND-2 modes where the relationship between the flows are as follows:

Ratio Control Mode.
The process flow is a ratio of the main flow (0 to 400% range).

Ratio% = —————- × 100

Blend Control Modes.
These modes cater for blending points before and after the main flowmeter. The process flow is a ratio of the net (combined) flow (0 to 80% range).

Ratio% = —————- × 100
