IND780drive Vehicle Weighing Terminal - Overview - METTLER TOLEDO

IND780drive Vehicle Weighing Terminal

Advanced Multi-Scale Vehicle Weighing Terminal

The IND780drive is a powerful terminal capable of handling various types of vehicle weighing applications without the use of a PC. Two separate scales can be controlled for inbound and outbound vehicle transactions, with either permanent or temporary vehicle Tare records.

IND780drive screen imageThe IND780drive industrial terminal is a single- or multi-range, high-performance weighing terminal for use with analog and/or METTLER TOLEDO® POWERCELL®/MTX® scale bases. The IND780drive may be used with one or two platforms connected, allowing both platforms access to the same database.

The terminal has permanent and temporary memory locations for storing vehicle IDs and weights. These can be recalled to complete a transaction and print a ticket. User-definable database tables enable application and variable data to be stored permanently or temporarily and recalled on demand. Traffic control logic is included using either lights triggered by weight or gates triggered by input from embedded loops, together with vehicle positioning detection.

Use the built-in predictive maintenance and diagnostics features as a preventative strategy to predict errors and plan scale maintenance, rather than react after a scale is already down.

Features and Benefits
  • A simple operating system with an enhanced graphical display – Reduced training time, better process visualization and fewer application errors add up to reduced cost
  • Traffic light or gate/loops control - Internal digital I/O controls vehicle traffic for up to two scales concurrently, meaning no other external programming controls are required
  • Internal target/ setpoint I/O controls - Direct material transfer controls incorporate the vehicle filling process in the vehicle inbound/outbound transaction to improve speed and accuracy of the process
  • Large database memory - Stores numerous vehicle, transaction, commodity and customer records in the Compact Flash memory card for long term retention
  • Standard USB and Ethernet connection - USB interface enables quick data entry via a USB keyboard and Ethernet allows easy access to the database’s records via a network.
  • Tare expiration control - Avoids measurement errors by ensuring that vehicle tare records are updated periodically
