The upgraded firmware for all models provides a modern and intuitive graphical user interface. Easily operated by nearly anyone on the production floor, its prompts lead operators step-by-step through a procedure. User-management profiles allow language, rights and key configuration settings for flexibility in work style and quick employee changeover.
Scale respective data interfaces connect up to four weighing platforms and easily integrate with existing IT or process-control systems. A USB-Host interface allows the simultaneous connection of multiple USB devices, such as printers, barcode readers and keyboards to maximize flexibility for individual needs of different workplaces. The "alibi-on-the-fly" functionality stores weighing data on an USB stick in real time to avoid time-consuming downloads of weighing data at shift’s end. Optional rechargeable Lithium-Ion batteries providing a significantly longer mobile operation time of up to 29 hours. Paired with the WLAN option—now available for all models –the scales are suited for mobile applications.
The ICS4 and ICS6 product lines are available as ready-to-use compact scales in many different capacities and sizes, or as weighing terminals in different application levels. The terminals allow the connection of the entire METTLER TOLEDO platform portfolio, including the recently launched PBK9 high-precision weighing platforms.
