Powerful Weighing Software

The ability to monitor and control up to 4 scales with independent scale settings, an advanced database for managing store tare & target values, plus thousands of weighing records which can then be exported into higher level applications is the core of an advanced terminal that has the flexibility needed to integrate into a broad variety of weighing appplications

Effective User Interface

The QVGA color display with easily configurable soft-keys, as well as standard interface to both external data entry devices and bar code readers provides a high productivity method for users to interact with the weighing system

Flexible Configuration and Custom Programmability


A broad variety of interface including fieldbus, Ethernet TCP/IP, serial, USB, an up to 40 inputs and 56 outputs using both internal and external I/O is possible. A pulse counter input provides further sensor integration possibility and the ability to run custom software on this terminal provide a powerful ability to create a weighing solution that fits with production processes

Flexible Control Options

The ability to connect to a broad variety of fieldbus networks, and the internal discrete I/O provide a solution for gain-in-weight (filling), loss-in-weight (dosing) and level indication applications. These terminals are suitable for use with either AC or 24VDC input power, providing for flexible integration into a variety of industrial applications





Features and Benefits

Flexible Multiple scale, I/O and communication options
Advanced Ethernet, USB and SQL data replication for powerful system integration
Fast Quick multi-processor for weight comparisons
Performance-driven Repeatable results for up to four scale

IND780 Advanced Weighing Terminal

Power and Performance for Advanced Weighing Applications

The IND780 is a highly flexible terminal capable of supporting simple to complex, stand alone to integrated weighing and control applications. A wide range of communications interfaces are available, including serial, Ethernal, USB and a variety of fieldbuses



Optimize 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


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
