Focused weighing solutions



IND560 industrial weighing terminals from Mettler-Toledo feature conventional strain gauge or high-precision electromagnetic force restoration weighing technologies, PLC or PC communication interfaces, and digital I/O control.

Columbus, OH —Newest addition to Mettler-Toledo ’s existing line of industrial weighing terminals is the IND560, which features conventional strain gauge or high-precision electromagnetic force restoration weighing technologies, PLC- or PC-communication interfaces, and digital I/O control. Options may be combined with panel or desk/wall/column mounting to meet most weighing applications in a variety of industries.


Device delivers precise repeatable measurement data from milligrams to tons in a package that integrates into existing control systems. It offers an A/D conversion rate of 366 Hz, TraxDSP digital filtering technology, and an I/O bus update rate of 50 Hz. It is suited for controlling filling and dosing applications in manual, semi-automatic, or automatic operations. SmartTrac graphic system with large display prompts operators for action for quick configuration of standard filling sequences. IP69K desk unit is protected in harsh environments.


Multiple connectivity options are offered. Direct PLC connectivity is available using 4-20 mA analog output, Allen Bradley RIO, Profibus L2 DP, or DeviceNet protocols. Interfaces are also provided for serial data via RS-232/422/485 and Ethernet TCP/IP networking.
