concrete-plant-automatic-controlGet the most production, accuracy and profitability from your concrete plant with a Batchtron automatic control system. With customized graphics and internal hardware designed specifically for JEL Manufacturing concrete plants, the Batchtron automatic control system provides rugged, high quality automation that is easy to use and hard to break and ideal for your Ready Mix or Precast concrete plant.

PLC Based Logic – Far superior than PC based control systems for industrial environments. The Batchtron’s PLC control has no rotating parts and  does not rely on Windows software which is a common reason other concrete plant control systems become outdated and unusable.

7″ Color Touch Screen Operation – A batch from your concrete plant is started and accurately completed with a few simple touch’s to the screen.  Select the pre-programmed formula, the batch size and press Go.  More detailed information about any part of your plant and even manual operation of your plant can be accessed by touching the image of the equipment on the screen you wish to access.

Compact Design and Small Footprint – The PLC, color touch screen, and all of the other electronics for the Batchtron are installed in a single desktop cabinet.

Manual Concrete Plant Control System

manual-concrete-plant-controlIdeal for concrete plant owners not needing to print tickets and less concerned with production speed and accuracy our manual concrete plant control systems let users operate each function on your concrete plant using a switch or button while not obstructing the view of the built in scale indicators.

Easy Water Control – Enter the amount of water you want in your batch and press go.

Basic Conveyor Safety – Conveyor belt start is delayed 0-30 seconds while a horn sounds to warn people the conveyor is about to start. The delay amount of time can be custom set to the operators preference by accessing the inside of the manual panel.

Precision Aggregate Batcher Gate Control – Inching gates are used and controlled by our manual panel to allow operators flow control of their aggregates from the hopper to the conveyor belt which helps control belt overloading and truck overfilling. As an added safety feature our manual panel doesn’t enable the aggregate batcher gates to open unless the conveyor belt is operating to prevent the need to start the conveyor belt under load.

Cement Discharge Control – Bimba valves are used to restrict the exhaust air speed of your cement batcher gates to give operators the ability to slowly open their cement gates and quickly close them.

Trade-Up to Batchtron – We offer trade-in credit on your manual panel when you decide to upgrade to a Batchtron automatic concrete plant control for up to 2 years from the date of purchase based on the condition of panel at the time trade.
