  • Programmable in-flight compensation for dynamic weighing operations
  • AC or DC power supply options

This unit is now obsolete. For technical support or repair please speak to our sales team or local distributor.

This weighing indicator with analogue data & relay outputs, has a very flexible digital display system, optimised for single or multiple load cell and weighing applications and systems.

The ADW15 weighing indicator also has digital architecture that offers very easy one-pass calibration and fast setup.

Offering options of isolated analogue outputs, latching relays or digital outputs for control or alarm functions.

For a wall or surface mount version of the ADW15, see model SMW Weighing Indicator & Controller, and for a wireless radio version, see our range of T24 wireless sensor receivers & displays

Can be used in conjunction with our LCI load cell failure alarm, which is designed to continuously monitor the condition of individual load cells and activates an alarm when faults in the system are detected, therefore providing increased safety and cost savings onsite for all weighing systems.

Calibration Automatic digital by use of keypad and 1 (or 2) known weights. Manual calibration can also be selected
Auto Tare By pressing keys '>' and then 'R' display will zero. Auto tare value can also be viewed and manually changed if required. Auto tare value is retained on powerdown.
Sensitivity Preset via DIL switches between 0.5 to 200 mV/V
Excitation 10 V DC nominal, 150mA maximum
Compensation By ± sense wires to compensate for cable, connection volt drops and any variation in 10 V supply
Accuracy 90 days ± 0.08% of reading ± 0.05% of FS typical
Drift 0.002%ºC typical @ 2.5 mV/V
DC Analogue Outputs
DC Voltage 0 to 5 V, 0 to 10 V, -10 to +10 V, Max Current out 50 mA
DC Current 0 to 1 mA, 0 to 20 mA, 4 to 20 mA, Max Current out 50 mA
Accuracy typical ± 0.08% of output, ± 0.08%FSD
Resolution as display resolution, max 15 bits
Calibration by 15-turn pre sets for gain and offset
Inversion By keypad value
Isolation ±130 V RMS or DC max to analogue input or to any other port
