The new IND560dyn and IND9D56 dynamic weighing controllers from METTLER TOLEDO can be used with a variety of METTLER TOLEDO scale conveyor systems, or other suitable scale conveyor systems using analog load cells. This flexibility makes it easy to create a tailored solution for specific applications.

The new IND560dyn and IND9D56 dynamic weighing controllers from METTLER TOLEDO can be used with a variety of METTLER TOLEDO scale conveyor systems, or other suitable scale conveyor systems using analog load cells. This flexibility makes it easy to create a tailored solution for specific applications.

The IND560dyn EXPRESSWEIGH® scale terminal is used to weigh random weight packages as they pass over the METTLER TOLEDO 9477 or other suitable scale conveyor. The configurable output can include averaged weight, consecutive number, time and date, package ID and package dimensions. The IND9D56 EXPRESSWEIGH® controller offers connections for photo-eyes and other I/O devices to create a complete solution as part of an integrated dynamic weighing system.

For applications where package sensing and sequencing is provided by another device in the system, IND560dyn offers the ability to accept start and stop weighing commands from an external "master" interface. As a result, it is easy to create a customized solution that works with production, filling, packaging or shipping lines of any age, location, or configuration.

The IND560dyn EXPRESSCHECK® scale terminal and IND9D56 scale controller provide 3-zone checkweighing for up to 25 target IDs. Configurable tolerances and reject timers are easily entered, and the bright, easily-read operator display shows a clear graphical indication of the comparison between each package's weight and the target value. The powder-coated, mild steel construction and IP54 ingress protection are standard features of both the IND560dyn and IND9D56. Additionally, both units carry NTEP compliance to 3000d.

A bar code can be read as the carton approaches the scale and the appropriate target ID automatically recalled, allowing for automated dynamic checkweighing of a mixed stream of items.

METTLER TOLEDO provides a standard offering of integrated industrial scale terminals, terminals integrated with common accessories and customized solutions to meet the weighing needs of almost any industry and any application. METTLER TOLEDO has been supplying packaged industrial scale terminal systems for over 20 years, providing the market with integrated systems to suit many of the most common applications. Available in a wide variety of configurations with short lead times, an integrated system can save valuable engineering and purchasing time compared to a custom in-house design.

Included with these systems is complete engineering documentation, and the assurance that they have been designed and tested to meet strict METTLER TOLEDO quality requirements. For some systems, third party approvals such as UL and Factory Mutual are included providing the end user with further cost savings. Solutions with customer specified components are also possible, providing further flexibility on how the weighing system is integrated into an OEM application.

METTLER TOLEDO is recognized as the global leader in weighing solutions for industrial, retail and laboratory applications. The company plans to continue its focus on developing customer-oriented weighing solutions that harness the power and flexibility of the leading technologies.
