Weighing Terminal Can Withstand Tough Operating and Cleaning Conditions

Mettler Toledo has announced the launch of its IND226x, a weighing terminal that has received a full range of approvals for worldwide use in the chemical and pharmaceutical industries. With its IP66-protected stainless steel housing, the IND226x weighing terminal is able to withstand the toughest operating and cleaning conditions and has been approval for use in harsh industrial environments. Organisation Internationale de Métrologie Légale (OIML), National Type Evaluation Program (NTEP) metrological approvals and international Ex certifications each allow for global use of the terminal in the hazardous area of zone 1/21.

The IND226x provides far-reaching benefits to its users. Exact container filling is guaranteed, thanks to the dual efforts of a seven-segment LED display and an integrated over/under control weighing mode. Simple handling and processing are also ensured through functions such as MinWeigh, which guarantees weighing within acceptable limits, and CalFREE, which allows for electronic calibration with weighing modules. The IND226x is also compatible with all of Mettler Toledo’s analog weighing platforms.

The IND226x is equipped with the mountable IND serial data interface and the ACM200 interface converter, enabling its connection to PCs or printers via an RS232 interface. This capability is ideal for hazardous areas, as the IND226x can be connected as a remote display via the serial remote interface. The IND226x’s various power supply options allow for its use in a range of application areas — including mobile weighing via a mains-free rechargeable battery.
