NSF and EHEDG have also made a positive appraisal of the device. "The IND429 terminal has been developed
for the heavy washdown environment applications needing a single analog or high precision transactional weighing or dynamic animal weighing terminal," states Product Manager Adrienne Olwert, "this terminal offers a great advantage for our customers by offering an ethernet and/or battery operation."

Complete versatility
Not only is the IND429 safe for use in many environments, it works with a diverse range of existing METTLER TOLEDO bench and floor platforms. The IND429 enhances the transactional weighing product line by offering a terminal which can interface with either an analog scale or high precision (IDNet) scale. The IND429 delivers precise repeatable measurement data from milligrams to tons in six cost-effective packages that easily integrate into existing systems.

Advanced connectivity
The IND429 offers an Ethernet TCP/IP interface for heavy wash-down applications providing very competitive solutions. It also comes standard with an RS-232 serial port for further data collection or ticket printing.
