Service Reminder: PLC Battery Change

CHANGING YOUR PLC BATTERY

The PLC controls the critical functions of all DCM IG series grinders. In order to keep your machine running without interruption or losing important data, we recommend changing the battery in the PLC unit at least every five years.

The PLC is located near the center of the electrical cabinet. First, identify the PLC type on your DCM grinder, then take a look at the images below to locate the battery and find the correct DCM part number.
