Our solution

TUPUNATRON has designed a control system using the SCAIME weighing technologies and the EcoStruxureTM automation architecture from Schneider Electric.


  • 12 weighing load cells with mounting kits
  • 4 eNod4-D DIN controllers
  • 1 Schneider M251 PLC
  • 1 SCADA software for automation


The entire production process, dosing and mixing, is controlled by SCADA software, an M251 PLC and eNod4-D weighing controllers.

The connectivity between the eNod4 controllers and the M251 controller has been validated as part of the technological partnership between SCAIME and Schneider Electric for weighing applications.
