PLC Connectivity

RS232 Serial
The 201 can be configured for continuous or on-demand weight requests. Commands may be sent for all weight functions such as ZERO, TARE, etc.

RS485 Serial
The 201 can be configured for continuous or on-demand weight requests. Commands may be sent for all weight functions such as ZERO, TARE, etc.

Digital Outputs
The 201 has four digital outputs that can be configured for checkweighing UNDER, ACCEPT, and OVER status.

Digital Inputs
The 201 has four digital inputs that can be configured to perform functions such as ZERO, TARE, GROSS/NET, UNITS, or PRINT. A PLC could be connected to these inputs to trigger these functions.

Analog Output
The 201 has capabilities for 0-10VDC and 4-20mA that can be configured to track the gross or net weight values.

Modbus TCP
The 201 supports Modbus/TCP to allow a PLC to receive weight and status information. The PLC may send commands such as ZERO and TARE to the 201 using Modbus/TCP.

Modbus RTU/ASCII
The 201 supports Modbus RTU/ASCII to allow a PLC to receive weight and status information. The PLC may send commands such as ZERO and TARE to the 201 using Modbus RTU/ASCII.

Ethernet Raw Socket
The 201 can be configured as a TCP/IP server to accept socket connections. The TCP/IP server port may be selected during set up.

USB Device
The 201 has a USB-B mini device connection, so it can be connected to a PC and, with the appropriate driver, will appear as a virtual COM.

Web Page Configuration and Diagnostics
The 201 includes a Web server that displays the current weight, digital and analog I/O states. The Web server allows remote configuration of various settings. The Web page also includes diagnostics of network connections that is useful for installation and troubleshooting of Modbus/TCP or Ethernet/IP
