The Central Computer and Operator Station is a key component of a Gravitrol System. The Gravitrol Central Computer communicates with the Weigh Hoppers and Drive Modules over a high-speed serial interface. The extruder-mounted Weigh Hopper sends a continuous stream of weight readings back to the Central Computer for processing. Based on this information, Gravitrol periodically adjusts the speed of each extruder through the Drive Control Modules (one per extruder) to maintain the desired rates.

The Operator Station is used by the operator for recipe entry, line operation/monitoring and alarms handling. In addition, remote interface capabilities allow Gravitrol to be integrated with a complete plant Supervisory Control System.
