Summary
 
The Kasar DPC-1 is a cost effective and versatile instrument capable of serving a wide range of industrial counting or controller applications. It features user-friendly control of upto 8 Flow Metered channels. A version is available with a post cycle Wash-Down function if required.

The unit is supplied in a rugged IP66 panel mount enclosure. We can also supply a complete kit if requested.
Description
 
The DPC-1 is a cost effective solution for most industrial pulse-batching processes. It is capable of controlling upto 8 Ingredients via an Output Relay Tree. Additionally if contamination is an issue a programmed Wash-Down feature can be called.

Compact, versatile and easy to use, this microprocessor-based product is ideally suited for filling, batching or discharging by Flow Metering. The basic unit offers upto 5 inputs and 6 outputs. An RS232 serial output is available for data recording purposes.

From experience we know that no two applications for our products are exactly the same. We are always happy therefore to add extra functions or tailor our software to meet customers’ individual requirements.
