February 18, 2010

The Model 1080 weight indicator/controller is a cost-effective data management and process control solution that utilizes modern communications protocols in standard and custom-configured floor scale, bench scale, vessel and specialized weighing applications. Offering built-in Fieldbus interfaces — including Ethernet 10/100, Profibus® DP and DeviceNet™, as well as support for ODVA™ Protocols — the 1080 meets current application needs while accommodating future growth. Its analog output option and RS 232/422/485 interface allows the 1080 to provide data transfer for legacy equipment. Additionally, the 1080’s compact form factor allows it to be easily installed in panel-mount applications where space is at a premium. Supporting up to eight 350 ohm weight sensors in a single scale configuration, the 1080 offers exceptional flexibility through a suite of specialized applications.
