PROFINET IO® interface option for popular weighing terminal

The popular IND780 weighing terminal from Mettler Toledo, based at Columbus, Ohio/USA is now available with an optional PROFINET IO® interface and most existing weighing installations ­using IND780 can be upgraded to PROFINET IO® connectivity. This news is also important for businesses that would like to extend the lifetime of their weighing equipment when network technology has been modernized.

The IND780 with the PROFINET IO® interface has received a conformance certificate from a PI test laboratory, ­ensuring conformance to the latest specification for PROFINET IO® devices. A General Station Description file, as a sample for Siemens Step 7 PLC interface code for use with IND780 PROFINET IO®, is available from Mettler to assist with weighing terminal implementation.

The IND780 provides interfaces for up to four independent measuring channels for scales or flow meters. In addition, the device provides a wide range of communications interfaces, including 4-20 ma output, serial, Ethernet TCP/IP, and USB. A simple operating system with an enhanced graphical display and SmartTrac™, the IND780 improves the speed and accuracy of manual or semi-automatic operations with three display modes that relate weight status to target graphically.
