Minebea Intec introduces its new range of weight transmitters that features a touch display for the first time and a wider selection of interfaces for all applications. The Link E can be easily, intuitively, and quickly installed directly in the web browser via the network.

Weight transmitters are crucial pieces of equipment in the world of analogue weighing. They are used to calculate reliable weight values and automatically pass these on to control or software systems for further processing. With the Link E, Minebea Intec is now presenting its new fully overhauled series of weight transmitters. The development focused on easy process integration, intuitive operation, and precision.

Touch Display and Simple Configuration

The new Link E offers a high-contrast touch display that allows users to read the status and all functions directly. All information and settings are visible at all times and the status of the scale can be checked quickly on the integrated display. The Link E can be easily configured via a standard web browser by entering the IP address and without the need to install any further software. This data is password-protected and can also be saved on the PC for security reasons. The familiar “smart calibration” enables adjustment entirely without the need for weights. These functions reduce installation and access times to a minimum and enable mechanical faults to be uncovered.

Extensive Range of Interfaces

The range of interfaces is another new feature of the Link E. Nine standard interfaces and field buses – including Profibus, ProfiNet, DeviceNet, or Ethernet/IP – are available for easy integration into automation systems, so that users worldwide can find the right connection for their production processes. For integrators and plant constructors, this provides the benefit of not having to switch manufacturer and constantly having to learn to use other weighing systems. This guarantees fast and direct integration into higher-level systems and prevents errors. There are three digital inputs and outputs available for simple control tasks.

Range of Applications

The wide variety of interfaces, in particular, makes the Link E a good option for a range of industrial sectors. From plant engineering through logistics, users benefit from easy integration and flexibility. Examples of applications include storage tank monitoring, process vessel control, and weight transmission to operator terminals for software systems.
