IND560x Hazardous Area Weighing Terminal

The IND560x hazardous area weighing terminal brings uncompromising power and versatility into Division 1, Zone 1, and Zone 21 classified areas. Choose from analog or digital weighing technologies and communicate via serial, Ethernet, and a variety of PLC interfaces. Easily program the feature-rich IND560x or create custom software applications. Whatever the need, the IND560x is the perfect solution for hazardous area weighing.

Increase processing speed

The IND560x features an ultra-fast A/D conversion rate. With TraxDSP tunable digital filtering to suppress environmental effects on weighing accuracy, enjoy precise, repeatable measurements from milligrams to tons.

Control processing

Internal discrete I/O options establish direct control of automatic and semi-automatic processes fully within hazardous areas.

Easy to Connect

Fast PLC integration and network access to the hazardous area are available via the ACM500 communication module.

Minimize Weighing Errors

SmartTrac graphical display, operator prompting, and one-touch access to terminal features through softkeys work to improve productivity and minimize errors.

*Some communication operations only available with ACM500

I/O Internal solid state discrete I/O options offer a total of 4 inputs and 6 outputs. Choose from one of three options: Active Inputs/Active Outputs, Active Inputs/Passive Outputs, Passive Inputs/Passive Outputs

Active Inputs are powered internally by the IND560x and are designed for use with simple hazardous are switches

Active Outputs are powered internally by the IND560x and provide 12 VDC switching at 50 mA total. These are intended for use with low-power, intrinsically safe solenoids

Passive Inputs and Passive Outputs require power to be provided externally through an appropriate barrier. Entity parameters must be confirmed

Total I/O control expandable to 12 inputs and 18 outputs using ARM100 modules and RS-485 from the ACM500
