Model 3060 Touchscreen Indicator

Fairmont, MN - Avery Weigh-Tronix introduces the Model 3060 Touchscreen Indicator, pairing unprecedented programmability with superior readability to solve diverse agriculture weighing applications. The NTEP-certified M3060 is the first agriculture touchscreen scale indicator, providing legal-for-trade measurements right out of the box for standard weighing applications. It also boasts powerful programmability: through Avery Weigh-Tronix's partnership with leading agriculture software developers, users can realize high-accuracy onboard weighing for applications ranging from feed to field.

The M3060 can be programmed using emerging agriculture software programs (sold separately*) for grain cart, animal weighing (RFID), seed tender, manure spreading, TMR mixers, feed batching, feed management and herd management. Users can also install custom software to establish user interfaces complete with recognizable icons and intuitive layouts, easing operator training and accommodating even the most unique application requirements. Featuring a 7-inch backlit, multi-colored touchscreen, the M3060 delivers exceptional readability in full sunlight-with maximum brightness three times that of most laptops. Its cast aluminum and polycarbonate enclosure ensures the indicator withstands tough environmental conditions.

Combined with custom software programming, the M3060 facilitates data management and control through features such as audit tracking. The M3060 keeps track of system changes and stores them in a log-allowing users to easily monitor past and current modifications. Collected data can be shared using the M3060's three serial ports, USB port and Ethernet port. The indicator also features two CompactFlash® slots: one for internal memory and another to facilitate Wi-Fi communications.

Its unparalleled application flexibility and communications capabilities ensure the M3060 adapts to agriculture weighing needs that change with each new season. Additional features that make the M3060 indicator a rugged, simple-to-use solution include:
o Durable indicator enclosure made of cast aluminum with high grade powder coat paint and a tough polycarbonate back case
