The Minbea Intec IS-X models are precision weighing platforms for weighing samples in hazardous areas/locations. The IS-X weighing platforms are ideal for use as inspection, measuring and test instruments in quality management systems. These units are often used in the mixing of gases and speed up both simple and complex routine procedures, saving time and making work much more efficient.

Minebea Intec IS-X weighing platforms meet the highest requirements placed on accuracy and reliability of weighing results through their rugged, durable weighing system. The weighing system will not be damaged if the maximum weighing capacity is occasionally exceeded. Efficient vibration filtering and approval for hazardous environments assure stable and reproducible results every time. Ultra fast response times increase work efficiency without sacrificing accuracy.

The IS-X offers direct connection to PC in a PLC or other control system for quickly capturing and organizing results. The weighing platform is also equipped with an RS-485 data interface which can be used to connect to a printer, PC, or universal remote switch through a Zener barrier.

For the highest precision in an explosion proof environment the IS explosion proof series is the ideal solution.
