Product Announcement from Rice Lake Weighing Systems

CB-2 Concrete Batch Control-Image

The CB-2 is a versatile, efficient concrete batching control system ideal for ready-mix and block plants. The CB-2 is capable of controlling portable plants, stack-up plants, central mix, dry batch, as well as precast plants. From weighing raw material to automatic printing of tickets and reports, your entire operation can now be cost-effectively controlled from this proven reliable controller.

Driven by Rice Lake's intelligent 920i HMI controller, the CB-2 delivers real-time statistical data through various network options. With its robust processing power and expanded networking capabilities, the CB-2 easily communicates with printers, PCs, keyboards, and other peripheral equipment.
