Talk to our PAC experts about Siemens Belt Scale And Load Cell Applications

Siemens Belt Scale and Load Cells

With Siemens field-proven SIWAREX weighing electronics, SIWAREX load cells, conveyor belt scales, solids flow meters and weighfeeders, Siemens weighs your world – with first-class solutions that help you accomplish almost any weighing task. Reach out to our EBH Process, Automation & Controls (PAC) experts about your weighing applications especially if you are having a hard time finding your previous supplier of belt scale or weighing components. It was announced that Thermo Scientific Ramsey belt scales have been discontinued effective June 26, 2023 so if you are looking for an alternative solution for discontinued Ramsey belt scale or static weighing controllers.

Siemens belt scales are simple to set up, including a high accuracy triple idler scale that are not mechanically coupled together, requires minimal maintenance (with no moving components), and deliver precise results. With their distinctive load cells in a parallelogram style, Siemens ensures minimal hysteresis and exceptional linearity.

EBH can provide on-site belt scale and load cell audits and/or commissioning and walk down services. Siemens belt scales and weighing components have been proudly manufactured in Canada for over 5 decades. With a team of experienced belt scale professionals of over 20 years, Siemens Canada is the center of weighing intelligence, research and development worldwide.

Siwarex weighing electronics are comprehensive range of weighing electronics for hopper, platform, batching, bagging and belt scales as well as solids flow meters and loss-in-weight applications.

Product Highlight – BW500

Make It Work Together With The Siemens Milltronics BW500 or BW500/L

Siemens Milltronics BW500 is an integrator for use with both belt scales and weighfeeder whereas, Milltronics BW500/L is an integrator for use in basic belt scale or weighbelt applications. Both operate with a belt scale and a speed sensor. Our BW500 controllers have no problem accepting/working with Ramsey’s load cells and scales.



Milltronics BW500 and BW500/L operate with a belt scale and a speed sensor. Belt load and speed signals are processed for accurate flow rate and totalized weight of bulk solids. BW500 can take on lower level control functions traditionally handled by other devices, and it supports popular industrial communication buses. Its proven load cell balance function eliminates matching of load cells. The PID function may be used for rate control on shearing weighfeeders – where belt loading is constant – but can also control pre-feeding devices. Operating in tandem with two or more weighfeeders, the BW500 may be used for ratio blending and controlling additives. Batching, load out, and alarm functions are also provided by the BW500.


Key features and benefits of the BW500 and BW500/L include:

  1. Reliable Performance: These instruments are known for their reliability in demanding environments. They are designed to withstand harsh conditions such as extreme temperatures, dust, and vibration, making them suitable for heavy-duty industrial applications.
  2. Easy Installation: The BW500 and BW500/L are user-friendly and easy to install. They come with simplified wiring connections and intuitive setup menus, enabling swift and hassle-free installation and configuration.
  3. Low Maintenance: With no moving parts, the instruments require minimal maintenance. This reduces downtime and enhances operational efficiency.
  4. Accurate Measurement: The BW500 and BW500/L employ advanced weighing technologies to ensure accurate and consistent measurement. They utilize unique parallelogram-style load cells that minimize hysteresis and provide superior linearity, resulting in precise weight readings.
  5. Integration Capabilities: These instruments can be easily integrated into existing control systems or SCADA (Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition) systems, allowing seamless data transfer and integration with other processes.
  6. Diagnostic Capabilities: The BW500 and BW500/L offer comprehensive diagnostic features, enabling quick identification of any issues or faults. This helps in troubleshooting and maintaining optimal system performance.


Siemens Milltronics BW500 and BW500/L weighing instruments are reliable, accurate, and durable solutions for continuous weight measurement in industrial applications. They provide the necessary tools to monitor and control bulk material flow effectively, contributing to improved efficiency and productivity in various industries.
