The Source Diagnostic Tool

Astec introduces “The Source," a hand-held tool that simulates most of the electrical signals coming into an asphalt plant control system.

  • Simplifies plant setup and troubleshooting by providing the user with the ability to simulate components without the need to waste material
  • Zero to 30 milli-volts to simulate a weigh-bridge signal
  • Zero to 10 DC volt signal can emulate a MBU; also controls the speed of a variable speed drive
  • 24 volt 0 – 4100 hertz pulses simulate the inputs from a tachometer or encoders;  provides a tach connector that will simulate an AC pump, or a feeder
  • 4 – 20 milli-amps output signals are handy for any current output field device
  • Provides control signals that simulate heat controllers, current transformers, action packs and any other current sources
  • Alerts user if that current circuit is open, simplifying 4 – 20 milli-amps control problems
