High-visibility, LED Overhead Weighing Controller

The MSI-8004HD has all of the heavy duty versatility of the MSI-8000HD with the added benefit of extreme high visibility in indoor and outdoor applications. The MSI-8004HD features 1.5-inch high characters on its LED display. The display is available in either red/green, allowing the controller to be clearly visible in many environments. The red/green display can be configured to change color based on weight and setpoint conditions, making the MSI-8004HD a natural fit for safety-critical industrial applications.

The milled anodized aluminum, IP65-rated enclosure is mountable in either a direct panel mount or included tilt stand. The MSI-8004HD is highly adaptable for integration with overhead crane weighing systems, providing visibility for crane cab and floor operators. The MSI-8004HD is compatible with all MSI-ScaleCore™ crane scales, dynamometers and TranSend™ systems. The meter version can also be used with any standard load cell or scale base, supporting up to four independent measurement channels.

Rugged Communication

Wi-Fi, Bluetooth® or serial RF options are available for direct connections to networks and computers. The MSI-8004HD includes user-definable function keys, and optional relays for safety, operator interfaces and process work flow. The MSI-8004HD meter can also be a functional weigh controller with the inclusion of a precision, four-channel multi-deck 24-bit A/D.
