New Weigh Module for Automated High Precision Weighing
Product News Jun 28, 2011
METTLER TOLEDO has launched the new WMS high precision weigh module. Ideal for fast and precise filling of pharmaceuticals and check weighing of parts, the WMC is easy to integrate in automated processes in laboratories and production. It is available in capacities up to 400g and a readability of 0,0001g.
The module is tailored to the needs of machine and equipment manufacturers for easy mechanical integration. Its 59 mm width corresponds with the commonly used space for parallel arrays used in multi line applications.
Plus the off centre weighing platform offers the flexibility to install the weigh module along side filling or other processing devices inside a machine.
The weighing platform can be changed easily, enabling fast changeover for different package formats.
Compliance with international standards for hygiene and safety
A robust stainless steel design, built in overload protection and the internal calibration device ensure the high precision weighing performance of the WMS. An IP54 rated labyrinth protects the weigh module against dust and spilled liquids during normal operation.
The IP66 rated wash down option seals the weigh module during cleaning. The weighing platform can be easily removed for cleaning thanks to a simple locking device.
The WMS is equipped with fast RS232 and RS422 interfaces. It has options to communicate with control systems via Profibus DP, Profinet IO, Ethernet IP and DeviceNet. It offers digital inputs and outputs for direct connection to sensors and actuators.
Easy and economical integration
The module can be combined with the ConBlock adaptor allowing it to be mounted on DIN and G-Rails inside the control cabinet. It has individual contacts for connecting sensors, actuators and interfaces. Each digital input and output has an LED to show its current status.
The ConBlock adaptor provides fast and simple access for commissioning and service and it makes electrical integration easy and economical.
