Bench Scales with Remote Display
Bench scales with remote display are easily configured using METTLER TOLEDO indicators. Choose from IND231, IND236 or IND570 in safe areas and IND256x or IND560x for hazardous areas. The remote indicator for your digital bench scales with remote display can control the host indicator via clear, tare, zero, and print key presses, while the applications on the host indicator continue to function as normal.
Configuration Utilizing Serial or Ethernet Communication
Remote display configuration using serial or Ethernet communication involves three distinct setup processes:
- Physical connection between indicators
- Configuration of the Remote indicator
- Configuration of the Primary indicator
Depending on the communication interface utilized, the setup steps will vary slightly. Refer to the user guide for the remote indicator to ensure proper configuration.
Traditional Production Environments
When properly configured, the IND231, IND236 or IND570 can function as a remote indicator for another indicator of the same model or for another METTLER TOLEDO product capable of transmitting METTLER TOLEDO Continuous Output. Remote communication is supported over both Ethernet and serial interfaces. This allows you to have a digital bench scale with remote display in standard production environments.
Hazardous Area-Approved Displays
The IND256x scale indicator can be configured as a remote display with an optional passive-current loop interface for Zone 1/21 or Division 1 hazardous areas. The IND560x is also available for bench scales with remote displays, but only an active current loop interface is approved for use in the IND560x. Both allow for up to 300 meters of communication distance and support clear, tare, print and zero operation.
IMPORTANT: Proper barriers or approved METTLER TOLEDO communication modules are required for safe installation and transmission of signals. Please refer to the Installation Manual for the relevant indicator.
