IND780 Advanced Weighing Terminal

Power and performance for advanced weighing applications

 

Powerful Weighing Software

The ability to monitor and control up to 4 scales with independent scale settings, an advanced database for managing store tare & target values, plus thousands of weighing records which can then be exported into higher level applications is the core of an advanced terminal that has the flexibility needed to integrate into a broad variety of weighing applications.

 

Effective User Interface

The QVGA color display with easily configurable soft-keys, as well as standard interface to both external data entry devices and bar code readers provides a high productivity method for users to interact with the weighing system.

 

Flexible Configuration and Custom Programmability

A broad variety of interface including fieldbus, Ethernet TCP/IP, serial, USB, and up to 40 inputs and 56 outputs using both internal and external I/O is possible.  A pulse counter input provides further sensor integration possibility and the ability to run custom software on this terminal provide a powerful ability to create a weighing solution that tightly fits with production processes.

 

Flexible Control Options

The ability to connect to a broad variety of fieldbus networks, and the internal discrete I/O provide a solution for gain-in-weight (filling), loss-in-weight (dosing) and level indication applications.  These terminals are suitable for  flexible integration into a variety of industrial applications.

 

Multi-Scale Flexibility in Harsh Environments

The IND780 is the go to terminal for connecting multiple scales in a Hazardous Area classified as Zone 2/22 or Division 2. A maximum of four scales can be connected. Supporting connection of analog and precision scale types provides flexibility in managing weighing processes in tough environments. Due to its non-incendive approval the IND780 is capable of connecting directly to power, PC, ERP, PLC and printers in the Non-hazardous Area without the need for barriers by using wiring methods allowed for Zone 2/22 or Division 2.

IND780 Q.iMPACT Material Transfer Controller
