IND780 Harsh with traffic controlOptimize the amount of visible information with the graphical LCD display. Configure up to four scales and a metrologically approved sum scale, then view one or all simultaneously.

The IND780’s multiprocessor design provides the fastest A/D performance at 366 Hz, with TraxDSP digital filtering for rough weighing conditions. Configurable softkeys permit single key press operation of important features and functions. The built-in predictive maintenance and diagnostics features help predict errors and plan scale maintenance, rather than react after a scale is already down.

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. 

Features and Benefits
  • A simple operating system with an enhanced graphical display and SmartTrac™ – Improves the speed and accuracy of manual or semi-automatic operations, with three display modes that relate weight status to target graphically
  • An array of integrated functions - Including Step Calibration, CalFREE™, TraxDSP™ Digital Filtering and TraxEMT™ Maintenance Diagnostics Suite
  • Multiple measurement channels - Allow concurrent scale measurement and control in a single terminal for hardware and engineering cost savings
  • Internal target/setpoint I/O controls - Internal digital I/O for direct material transfer control imporoves speed and accuracy in weigh-in or weigh-out feeding processes
  • Target Table - Eliminates the need for repetitive data entry by storing numerous target and tolerance records for over/under checkweighing or material feed control applications
  • MinWeigh® - Ensures compliance and prevents inaccurate measurements by monitoring the scale for any weighments below a specified minimum
  • Cluster networking - Provides remote terminal access over an Ethernet LAN network, for flexible distribution of control and data
