Fast, Accurate Weight Indicators Offer Industry Leading Features

Press release date: May 29, 2014

Avery Weigh-Tronix launches the ZM305 weight indicator. This IP69K dust and waterproof indicator model is available in two variants; the ZM305 GTN Inbound-Outbound, which offers inbound/outbound weighing suitable for vehicle weighing applications and the ZM305 Standard, a multi-purpose indicator with built-in applications.

Vehicle Weighing

The ZM305 GTN Inbound-Outbound offers users the ability to store gross, tare and net weights for up to 1000 container or vehicle IDs. Ideal for use in vehicle weighing applications, the ZM305 GTN Inbound-Outbound can be used for any application where container weights need to be recorded against a tare ID/register.

A suite of built-in applications

The ZM305 Standard can analyze, store, display and transmit crucial weighing data. The numeric keyboard and built-in functions fulfill common weighing requirements, such as counting, checkweighing and process control, while the ability to store multiple TAREs and IDs in its internal memory provides users with simple data storage and retrieval.

Multiple connectivity

The new indicators are extremely fast, accurate and can support up to 14 weight sensors over  a long distance. They feature multiple standard connectivity interfaces that include Ethernet, two RS232 serial interface ports and a USB port.  Analog output, USB Device, Current Loop/ RS485/RS422 or wireless Ethernet connectivity are also available as options.

Don Halbert, product manager for Avery Weigh-Tronix, commented: “The ZM305 is the latest addition to our popular ZM300 range of indicators. We’ve built upon the strengths of the existing indicator range by creating an inbound/outbound indicator specifically for vehicle weighing, as well a multi-function version which includes the ability to weigh in-motion in order to further meet the practical needs of industry.”

Industry-leading features

The ZM305 utilizes the industry-leading light emitting IBN display technology which provides high contrast and enhanced viewing angles, even in poor lighting conditions, reducing operator error. Both models include an air exchange solution to keep condensation from gathering inside the enclosure when subjected to hot cleaning in a cold environment.

With their unprecedented flexibility, ZM indicators accommodate the widest range of applications from general weighing and process control to applications subjected to high pressure or heavy washdown.
