Weight transmitters are often utilized in various departments throughout industry and predominately used in the process control industry and are an ideal product for maximum efficiency and value. These din rail mountable high speed devices with weight indication displays are typically connected to PLC's or other transmitters. While we don't offer Mettler Toledo, the weight transmitters offered by Central Carolina Scale, are versatile high performance instruments designed to connect directly 1, 4, or sometimes 8 loadcells. The large number of weight transmitter choices we offer provide excitation voltage which is needed for load cells. High precision weight transmitters convert the full scale weight signal into a 4-20mA output, 0-10V output, 0-5V output and/or communicate via RS-232, Analog Output, RS-485, Profinet, Profibus, Devicenet, Ethernet IP, etc... Connections are usually made either on the side, front panel or back panel of the weight transmitter.
For PLC systems that require weight data from a scale, Rice Lake Weighing Systems compact size SCT-10 weight transmitter delivers equivalent signal-conditioning function without the bulk of a full-size scale controller. Rice Lake's SCT-10 is DIN-rail mountable within a cabinet or control panel, where it can convert a scale’s load cell signal to serial or analog output. Scale operators find the analog output signal particularly useful for monitoring hopper filling and discharge. Unlike many other transmitters, Rice Lake SCT have their own integrated display, with annunciators for unit and weighing status, and push buttons or toggle switch and digital rotary for zero, tare and setpoint entry—ultimately simplifying scale setup, calibration, and operation.
