New Evolution(TM) Weight Indicator/Controller Offers Built-In Fieldbus Communications

Ethernet, PROFIBUS® DP, DeviceNet(TM) and serial interfaces are standard on Model E1070.

Fairmont, MN-August 16, 2004-Avery Weigh-Tronix, Inc. has introduced The EVOLUTION(TM) Model E1070 Indicator. The new E1070 Indicator offers a versatile indicator/control platform designed for the heterogeneous industrial communications environment with built-in standard fieldbus interfaces for Ethernet 10/100, PROFIBUS DP and DeviceNet. The E1070 is the ideal solution for weighing, control and data sharing in networked applications such as tank weighing, truck scales and checkweighing. With a 100X per second analog-to-digital conversion rate, the flexible Model E1070 can also provide digital monitoring of individual Weigh Bar® analog weighing points with the optional Avery Weigh-Tronix SensorComm(TM) digital junction box, offering unparalleled flexibility in truck scale and batching applications.

"The E1070 offers a very attractive set of features in a sub-$1000 platform", said Gary Barke, Avery Weigh-Tronix, Network Application Engineer. "Not only do you get complete industrial network communications in one instrument, you get it standard-whereas others make this level of connectivity an expensive option." Barke added that the Model E1070 switches easily from job to job, from providing control information to PLCs or relays, counting, peak weight, to checkweighing applications with a multi-segment fan graph for fast verification.

The Model E1070's rugged stainless steel case is rated NEMA 4X, making it ready for washdown and wet applications. Other features include Harmonizer(TM) digital noise filtering, self-diagnostics, remote display capabilities, a bright, six digit/seven segment LED display with large 0.8-inch digits, dual serial ports for transference of weight information to peripherals devices, printers or computers, and soft-touch operational keys. In addition, the model E1070 is Legal for Trade.

The Model E1070 is one of several indicator/controllers in the new Avery Weigh-Tronix Evolution Series. Go to www.wtxweb.com/indicators to learn more.
