Mettler Toledo announces the addition of the IND429 to its existing line of industrial weighing terminals. The IND429 offers versatility, connectivity and safety for use in almost any industry and application. Boasting such sanitation and hygiene standards as IP69K, GMP and EHEDG, the IND429 is the clear choice when the utmost safety and reliability are needed.
Compliance for any industry
The IND429 terminal carries multiple safety ratings. With IP69k, this terminal is suited for use in the harshest environmental conditions. The device is dust-tight and can be cleaned with high-pressure equipment, perfect for the food and chemical industries. IND429 also meets Good Manufacturing Practice (GMP) compliance standards and was evaluated as “very well suited to GMP-compliant work.” by the Steinbeis Transfer Institute at the University of Berlin. The IND429 was specifically designed for use in hygienically sensitive areas. Its smooth surface and the materials used in its construction allow it to be cleaned easily and completely. NSF and EHEDG have made a positive appraisal of the device. “The IND429 terminal has been developed for the heavy washdown environment applications needing a single analog or high precision transactional weighing or dynamic animal weighing terminal,” states Product Manager Adrienne Olwert, “this terminal offers a great advantage for our customers by offering an ethernet and/or battery operation.”
Not only is the IND429 safe for use in many environments, it works with a diverse range of existing METTLER TOLEDO bench and floor platforms. The IND429 enhances the transactional weighing product line by offering a terminal which can interface with either an analog scale or high precision (IDNet) scale. The IND429 delivers precise repeatable measurement data from milligrams to tons in six cost-effective packages that easily integrate into existing systems.
The IND429 offers an Ethernet TCP/IP interface for heavy wash-down applications providing very competitive solutions. It also comes standard with an RS-232 serial port for further data collection or ticket printing. The interfaces are installed in a protected position at the back of the terminal and area accessible via IP69k protected sockets.
