Model SBC-2000
Family of Weigh Feeder Controllers
General Description
The SBC-2000 Family of Controllers has been specifically
designed with an emphasis on performance, reliability,
compact size and overall ease-of-use. Offered in three
models to more effectively address the wide range of
user requirements, the SBC-2000 Family of Controllers
marks an evolutionary change for Acrison, encompassing the integration of new technologies, features
and functions, and at lower cost than previous generation Controllers.
The SBC-2000 Family of Controllers includes three
distinct models, with all having identical weigh
feeder control capabilities:
1) Model SBC-2000 CM : For control of a
single Acrison weigh feeder. The Model SBC2000 CM consists of a single circuit board that
can be provided in a panel or plate-mounted
card rack, or loose for user mounting. This
model is designed primarily for applications
that utilize a central computer, PLC or DCS
for monitoring and control, and do not require a local operator interface. (An option
is available for a local or remote keyboard
display unit [KDU], if desired.)

2) Models SBC-2000 DSP and SBC-2000
DSP/C: For applications that require a local
operator interface, the Model SBC-2000 DSP
integrates a Model SBC-2000 CM Controller
with a monochrome LCD graphics display and
a Lexan membrane keypad. The Model SBC2000 DSP/C Controller includes a metallic
console designed with a TFT color graphics
display and piezo electric keypad.

3) Model SBC -2000 MFC (Acri-Data ®
System): For applications that utilize Multiple Weigh Feeders, but may not have central
computer control, this model consists of one
or more (20 maximum) SBC-2000 CM or DSP
Controllers plus a 15" (up to 6 Controllers) or
17” (up to 20 Controllers) Color Touchscreen
for total remote monitoring and control of
the feeders.

All SBC-2000 Controller models include multiple serial
communications ports for customer use, as well as
both a built-in 10Base-T Ethernet port and a Profibus
DP port as standard features.
The Controllers support operation with either AC
variable frequency or SCR/DC motor controllers,
using serial or analog interfaces.
The Model SBC- 2000 Controllers may be optionally
packaged in a variety of ways depending on user
preference. Wall -mounted and free - standing enclosures are available, as are plate - mounted and loose
The VME-style card racks typically provided to hold
SBC-2000 CM Controllers (three sizes are available to
accommodate 2, 7 or 18 Controllers and option modules, respectively) can be supplied with rear flanges
for plate mounting (such as when installed in an optional enclosure), with front flanges for mounting
directly into a user’s panel, or on the front of an enclosure, or as a 19” rack mount. When mounted
using front flanges, an aesthetic bezel is provided.
Basic SBC-2000 Controller Design
The three SBC-2000 Controller models share many design
features and include identical weigh feeder control software because of their identical core components. The
core electronics is the computational heart of all of the
Controllers in the SBC- 2000 Family. It provides nonvolatile program memory and non-volatile set point
storage using state-of-the-art, low power, flash memory
technology, eliminating the need for less reliable battery
backup. In addition, the Controller Program can be quickly
updated using a PC or laptop, if required.
The use of today’s advanced technologies enables the SBC2000 Family of Controllers to utilize a single program that is
configurable to control any Acrison Weigh Feeder Model.
The program also includes, as standard, all serial/network
interface protocols and all languages currently available
from Acrison, thereby providing complete compatibility
between the various functions and options.
In order to reduce wiring requirements between the
feeder and controller, and to provide increased expandability, each SBC- 2000 Controller contains a dedicated
internal network. This network is used for communication between the controller and the applicable scale
and motor controller, and permits expanded analog
and/or digital I/O capability.
SBC-2000 Advantages
Many of the most significant design benefits of the various
Model SBC-2000 Controllers are not visible. Some of the
most noteworthy are:
• Minimized hardware design for both high reliability and
economy of space. One 19” card rack can hold up to 18
feeder controllers (modules).
• Minimal connection points from the Controller to the
feeder. Fewer connectors provide better reliability.
• “Hot Swap” design and front-accessible modules permit
easier maintenance SBC-2000 CM Modules can be replaced
without turning the power off.
• Low power CMOS logic and over-specified power supplies
provide cool running electronics for a longer product life.
• Redundant power supply option available for extra high
• Standard Controller has UL, CSA and IEC (CE) certifications.
• Electrically isolated serial and digital I/O are standard.
Standard Operating Features
SBC- 2000 Controllers offer many functions and features
derived from over three decades of experience with
microprocessor-based weigh feeder controllers. While
