CDI-1600 Digital Weight Indicator - Dual Scale Version | Image

Dual scale version

With the dual scale option, this indicator can display weight data from two scales simultaneously. Both scales are active and are independently weighing at all times. The display can be set to display the weight of both scales at the same time or the total weight of both scales. Connect up to 10 load cells per scale input (20 in total).

Capture additional data

  • Transaction data can be captured and added at time of weighing by using the CDI-1600 front panel, a Qwerty keyboard, barcode reader or other device connected to the CDI-1600
  • The indicator can be configured at set-up to prompt the operator with pre-set questions for data entry. These questions can be defined during the DWI set-up and configuration
  • This captured data can be output to a printer or remote host computer via a serial port or Ethernet connection
