Mettler Toledo: It takes less than 3 minutes to integrate an ACT350 weight transmitter

The tutorial video shows how to connect the Mettler Toledo  ACT350 weight transmitter to an Allen Bradley PLC via #EtherNet/IP fieldbus in using the Studio 5000. The ACT350 weight transmitter is a weighing electronics for scales, weigh modules and load cells. The device can be installed inside the electric control cabinet on DIN-Rails. It provides fast and simple connectivity to most PLC Systems. DSM files are available to connect to Allen Bradley PLC systems. The dual port Industrial Ethernet of #ACT350 supports daisy-chain and ring network topologies and simplifies installation of multi transmitter weighing applications. The weight #transmitter is ideal for designing customized weighing applications such as conveyor scales, filling machines, over-under-classification, tank-, silo-, hopper-, vessel- or reactor scales. The transmitter has an on board OLED display to show weight result. Four touch keys can be used for configuration. It has 5 digital inputs and 3 digital outputs for direct control of actuators.
