The Inline Continuous Board Scale CS 5000 makes automatic monitoring of the material distribution and the panel weight possible. The GreCon Continuous Board Scale CS 5000 is ideal for production lines with very high production speeds and in limited space conditions. Contrary to the usual board scales using weighing tables, the CS 5000 shows the weight distribution within the measured panel across production. The use of the Continuous Board Scale CS 5000 in endless production or in the measurement of single panels is possible.
Using the optional link to a GreCon thickness gauge, the average raw density and its distribution within the panels can also be calculated and used to optimise the process.

The continuous board scale operates in a non-contact way. For measurement, the material to be weighed is penetrated by X-rays. Depending on the material quantity and the specific weight of the material, the radiation intensity measured by the sensor changes. This is the measure for the weight per unit area (kg/m²).
GreCon measuring systems are equipped with GreCon online support SATELLITE. This provides safe, simple and fast remote support when there is trouble or to check the system. Each online support is logged and stored in the system's histor
For the data transmission to higher-ranking process control systems, different network connections, such as OPC or ODBC, are available.
The core of the software package is the visualisation software. It records, stores and graphically represents all measured data. The simple menu structure, which is identical for all GreCon measuring systems, makes intuitive operation possible. Clear information and graphics enable the operator to quickly and effectively adjust the running production process.
This is a product database in which different panel types and production parameters for the system can be stored.
