Cardinal Scale’s model 201 weight transmitter is a fast, accurate instrument for process control-based static and dynamic weighing applications. The 201 is capable of powering up to six load cells and comes with a 35-mm DIN rail mounting bracket. The U.S.-made 201 transmitter features a 0.5-in.-high, six-digit, transflective LCD display with up to seven different colors and is viewable in all lighting levels from direct light to total darkness. A variety of mounting options and ColorZONE control options make it ideal for quick visual verification of weight status. The model 201 offers sample rates of up 200 samples per second and standard communication protocols include serial interface RS232/RS485, mini-USB-B, Analog (0-10V or 4-20mA), Ethernet TCP/IP, EIP, and Modbus/TCP, making it easy to connect to a PC, PLC, and other smart devices. Four programmable digital inputs and outputs are included to make it even more flexible. Connectivity set-up is simple using the printed legend on the front of the 201 enclosure. Setup and calibration of the model 201 is fast and easy using both the on-screen indicator menu prompts or Web browser interface via IP address.
