Mettler Toledo’s weighing control terminal for chemical processes

May 2018 Mass Measurement

The IND780 weighing terminal from Mettler Toledo can now interface with Profinet IO for seamless data exchange. The IND780 is a highly flexible terminal capable of supporting simple to complex stand-alone to integrated weighing and control applications. Now capable of communicating with Profinet IO, the terminal combines speed and performance with advanced communication options.

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, is available from Mettler Toledo to assist with weighing terminal implementation.

The IND780 provides interfaces for up to four independent measuring channels for scales or flow meters. In addition, it 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 graphically relate weight status to target.
