The Hydro-Control VI is a stand alone unit designed for moisture control in concrete production. In addition to the RS485 input from either a Hydro-Mix or Hydro-Probe Orbiter moisture sensor, the Hydro-Control VI also has 5 digital inputs and 7 digital outputs which are used to control the functionality of the unit. It can be connected to a batch control system via an RS232 serial link to allow automatic recipe selection or the transfer of mix cycle information. An optional expansion board is available which allows recipe selection via digital inputs and provides 2 analogue inputs and 2 analogue outputs.
