  • Supports up to 20 programmable, on screen prompts to assist an operator through complex operations.
  • Allows users to control devices directly in the hazardous areas without the need to use expensive barriers or purges.
  • Provides bi-directional communication between the weighing terminal and the higher-level automation system, such as PLCs (programmable logic controllers) or DCS (distributed control systems).
  • Can be connected using either a copper wire-carried current loop signal or a fiber optic connection.
  • Communicates with several devices using multiple protocols simultaneously: PLC, Ethernet TCP/IP and serial.
  • Is designed for the global market and is approved to local standards by FM (US and Canada), ATEX (EU) and NEPSI (China).
