06 July 2010

METTLER TOLEDO has launched the WMC weigh module with an ultra compact design. With a width of just 1 inch, this makes it the smallest high precision weighing sensor in the world.

The WMC has a capacity of 20g and a readability of 0,00001g.

The WMC is made for fast, precise filling of pharmaceuticals and check weighing of small parts or quantities. It is easy to integrate in automated processes in laboratories and production.

An extremely small width of only 25 mm (1 inch) allows machine and equipment manufacturers to design new and unique solutions. The weigh modules can be placed next to each other to form a compact array for simultaneous multi process applications.

The robust stainless steel design and built in overload protection ensures the high precision weighing performance of the WMC in an industrial environment. It is equipped with a fast RS232 interface for high speed data processing. The module has options to communicate to control systems via Profibus DP, Profinet IO, Ethernet IP and DeviceNet.
