The IND560 represents the latest in METTLER TOLEDO technology
and is the most versatile weighing terminal available today. Choose
from conventional strain gauge or high-precision electromagnetic
force restoration weighing technologies. Specify direct PLC or PC
communication interfaces or digital I/O control. Combine these
selections with the option of panel or desk/wall/column-mounting,
and the IND560 is the perfect match for nearly any weighing
application in many industries, including:
• Basic Weighing
• In-Motion Weighing
• General Process Weighing
• Formulation
• Filling and Blending
• Over/Under Checkweighing
Enhance measurement or control applications with an ultra-fast A/D conversion
rate of 366 Hz, patented TraxDSP™ digital filtering technology, and an I/O bus
update rate of 50 Hz. The IND560 delivers precision measurement data from
milligrams to tons in a single cost effective package that easily integrates into
existing systems.
The versatile IND560 excels in controlling filling and dosing applications delivering
best-in-class performance for fast, precise, accurate results in manual,
semi-automatic, or fully automatic operations.
The IND560 promotes more cost-effective solutions too. Control up to 18 digital
outputs through the IND560 without the use of a PLC. Target outputs are also
latched, eliminating the need for external logic devices.
For more advanced filling, the Fill-560 Application Software adds additional
sequences and component inputs. Without complex and costly programming,
quickly configure standard filling sequences or create custom filling and blending
applications for up to four components that cue operators for action and reduce
errors.

IND560 User’s Guide
Whether communicating weight data to a process PLC or providing an easier way
to do terminal configuration via the InSite™ PC Tool, the IND560 offers multiple
connectivity options to improve applications.
Direct PLC connectivity is available using 4-20mA Analog Output, Allen-Bradley
RIO, PROFIBUS DP, DeviceNet, EtherNet/IP or Modbus TCP protocols. Interfaces are
also available for serial data via RS-232/422/485 and Ethernet TCP/IP networking.
With the release of v4.00 firmware, a new optional USB interface provides the
ability to connect a QWERTY keyboard for operator input. The new USB option can
also be used for upgrading terminal firmware and performing a save/restore.

Main PCB
The IND560 terminal’s main printed circuit board (PCB) provides the scale
interface for analog load cell or IDNet.
The main board also contains the COM1 serial port that provides RS-232, RS-422,
or RS-485 communication. The port is bidirectional and can be configured for
various functions such as demand output, SICS host communications, continuous
output, ASCII command input (C, T, P, Z), ASCII character input, report printing,
totals printing, or connection to an ARM100 remote I/O module.
The main board also contains the AC power input connections, front panel
keyboard interface and bus connectors for the option boards.
Scale Bases
The IND560 supports two types of scale bases: Analog or IDNet.
Analog Load Cell Scale Base
The IND560 supports this scale type by an analog load cell interface. The terminal
can drive up to eight 350-ohm analog load cells.
IDNet™ Scale Base
The IND560 supports the newer T-brick style of high-precision base through the
main board IDNet port. This port provides the +12 volts and communication
required to operate this newer style base. The older K module and Pik-brick cells
require the addition of an adapter board and new power supply (to support the
+32 volt requirement) to the IND560. The adapter board and power supply are
available as an option.
Initial performance and compatibility testing was carried out on the IND560
and the following modules: K15, F15, K32 and T-Brick. Compatibility with
other modules and bases is unknown.

PROFIBUS DP, EtherNet/IP and Modbus TCP. Additional details about each of these
interfaces can be found in the IND560 PLC Interface Manual, provided on the
documentation CD.
Analog Output
Analog Output refers to the representation of an internal system variable using a
proportional electrical signal. Analog Output can be used to transmit a measured
value, such as the gross or net weight. Another use for Analog Output is as a
control signal for some external device, such as a control valve, where the amount
of valve opening is proportional to the analog signal commanding its operation.
Such outputs are used to control the flow rate of material into or out of a vessel.
Both 0-10 volt DC and 4-20 mA signals are provided.
A-B RIO
The A-B RIO option enables data exchange by bi-directional communications using
the Discrete Data Transfer or Block Transfer mode. The IND560 Terminal initiates a
communication exchange with the PLC approximately 20 times per second
utilizing the Allen-Bradley Discrete Data Transfer protocol. This communication is a
high-speed, real-time message interface between the IND560 Terminal and the
PLC for process control. Division, integer, and floating point values are supported.
The IND560 A-B RIO interface also supports Block Transfer mode for transmission
of larger amounts of data.

IND560 User’s Guide
DeviceNet
DeviceNet is an RS-485 based network utilizing CAN chip technology. This network
was created for bit and byte-level devices. The network can be configured to run up
to 500Kbits per second depending on cabling and distances. Messages are limited
to 8 unfragmented bytes. The network can include up to 64 nodes including the
master, commonly called the scanner.
PROFIBUS DP
The IND560 Terminal communicates to a PROFIBUS-DP master according to
DIN 19 245. The PROFIBUS option consists of a module and software that resides
in the IND560 Terminal, which implements the data exchange.
EtherNet/IP
The IND560 supports communications of the EtherNet/IP interface option and the
appropriate driver software.
Modbus TCP
Modbus/TCP is used to establish master-slave/client-server communication
between intelligent devices. It is an open standard network protocol, widely used in
the industrial manufacturing environment. The ModbusTCP protocol takes the
Modbus instruction set and wraps TCP/IP around it. The Modbus TCP protocol is
supported by the EtherNet/IP interface board, version 1.32 or higher.
Application Software
Installing Application Software
When a hardware key (also referred to as an iButton) enabling IND560 application
software is installed or removed, a pop-up message will appear instructing the
user to perform a master reset. The master reset can be performed with or without
resetting metrologically significant EEPROM (Scale) data, depending on the
positions of switches SW2-1 and SW2-2. Both of these switches must be set to
ON in order to reset EEPROM data to its factory default values. If either of them is
set to OFF, EEPROM data is preserved. Refer to Chapter 4 of this manual, Service
and Maintenance, for details on performing a master reset.

Special Requirements for Using Drive-560 and
Dyn-560
Required Firmware Version
The Drive-560 and Dyn-560 applications are both written using Task Expert™. To
run a TaskExpert application, the IND560 must have version 3.xx firmware or
higher installed.
Required Mainboard Version
In addition to the software, the IND560 must have a main board version (V0.8)
installed. V0.8 main boards include 8MB of Flash Memory. The version can be
then the System Information softkey
checked by pressing the Recall Info softkey
, and looking at the details for the analog or IDNet board under Hardware – Scale
Type. If there is a (V0.8) after the Analog L/C or IDNet text, the main board
contains the 8MB Flash Memory and will support running a TaskExpert
application. If the version is (V0.2) or there is no version shown, there is only 4
MB of Flash Memory on the main board and the board must be replaced with a
V0.8 version before the terminal can run a TaskExpert application.
Main boards with the smaller, 4MB, Flash Memory will support v3.00 firmware.
However, they will not support Task Expert based applications such as the Drive560 and Dyn-560.
TaskExpert™
TaskExpert functionality provides a way to modify the standard capabilities of an
IND560 so that it more closely aligns with the application requirements.
TaskExpert is a combination of a programming visualization tool, an execution
engine and the basic functionality of the terminal. Modifications may be made to

This chapter provides information about navigation, basic
functionality, and report generation using the IND560 terminal.
Operation of the terminal depends on enabled functions and
parameters that are configured in setup as described in Chapter 3.0,
Configuration. Navigation and basic functionality, as well as basic
report generation are covered in the following sections.
Security
The IND560 supports the use of username/password for setup security at four levels.
Refer to Appendix B to determine security levels assigned to specific parameters in
setup.
Administrator
An Administrator has unlimited access to all areas of the operating
and setup system. There can be multiple Administrator accounts.
There is a Primary Administrator account, which can be changed
but never deleted. The terminal is pre-configured at the factory with
the Primary Administrator account with a username of “admin”. The
factory default password is null (no password). The pre-configured
username (admin) cannot be changed; the password can only be
added or modified. The unit as configured at the factory requires no
login or password entry to enter the setup mode. All functions of the
terminal are available to all users until a password for the Primary
Administrator account is set up.
When the Metrology switch (SW1-1) is turned “on” (refer to the next section of
this chapter) and a region approval is selected in setup, all users with
Administrator rights are reduced to the Maintenance level. This is done to
protect metrologically significant parameters that cannot be changed when the
terminal is approved.
Similarly, the metrology switch can also be used to prevent Administrator level
users from accessing metrology features even if the region approval is “None”.
Refer to Appendix B, Default Settings, for the security level of all setup
parameters.
Once a password is set up, be sure to remember the password. If the
password is changed or forgotten, access to the setup menu will not be
2-1
IND560 User’s Guide
available. Be sure to protect the password from access by unauthorized
personnel. The password provides access to the entire setup menu, unless
the metrology switch is placed in the approved position.
Maintenance
Access can be limited by configuring this security level as desired.
Supervisor
Access can be limited by configuring this security level as desired.
Operator
One default operator account with a username of anonymous and
password null (no password) is provided. Sites with validation
requirements might create many operator accounts, each with a
username and password entry requirement.
If a password has been programmed for the Primary Administrator username in
Setup, a security challenge is presented when entering Setup and a username and
password must be entered. The user can enter a password at any security level
supported by the User configuration in the User setup.
The terminal is pre-configured at the factory to include an “anonymous” user
account with a null (blank) password. The default anonymous user record can be
edited or deleted. The user can increase to a higher level of security clearance by
requesting a setup function and then meeting the associated security challenge.
If a login fails, the display exits the login page and returns to the home position.
Metrology Switch
If the metrology switch (SW1-1) is placed in the approved position (On) access to
the Scale branch of setup and other metrologically significant areas is not
permitted. The metrology switch can be used to prevent Administrator level users
from accessing metrology features even if the region approval is “None”.
Selecting a specific region approval and turning “on” the Metrology switch
specifically alters some scale functions:
If the approval is Canada, then the keyboard tare command carries out a
rounded tare.
If the approval is Canada, then the center of zero division is 0.2d. The
default value for non-approved mode is 0.25d.
If the approval is OIML, then the power up zero range is +/- 10% and
pushbutton zero range is +/-2%. For non-approved mode, this range can
be selected by the user.
Access to the metrology switch may be sealed in conformity with local regulations
in “legal-for-trade” applications. Figure 2-1 shows the location of the metrology
switch.

Display Operation
Key names and commands are identified in this manual by upper- and lower-case
letters. Key names, such as ENTER, are in all upper-case letters, and commands,
such as “select,” are in lower-case (unless they begin a sentence, in which case
the first initial is upper-case). For example:
.
“Press START...” means to press the START softkey
“Select an option...” means to use the UP or DOWN navigation keys to select a
setting, then press ENTER.

Zero
The Zero function is used to set or reset the initial zero reference point of the
IND560. There are three types of zero setting modes:
•
Automatic Zero Maintenance
•
Power-Up
•
Pushbutton
Automatic Zero Maintenance
Automatic Zero Maintenance (AZM) enables the IND560 to compensate for the
build up of small amounts of weight and track itself back to the center of zero.
Within the AZM operating range (programmable from 0.00 to 10.00 divisions),
when the terminal is in a no motion condition, it makes small adjustments to the
current zero reading to drive the weight reading toward the true center-of-zero.
When the weight is outside of the programmed AZM range, this feature is not
functional.
Power-Up Zero
Power-Up Zero enables the IND560 terminal to capture a new zero reference point
after power is applied. If there is motion during a power-up zero capture function,
the terminal will continue to check for a no-motion condition until zero is captured.
Power-up zero can be disabled or enabled, and a range above and below
calibrated zero can be configured. The range is programmable from 0% to 100%
of capacity and can include a positive range and also a range below calibrated
zero.
Pushbutton Zero
The pushbutton (semi-automatic) zero function can be accomplished by pressing
the ZERO
scale function key, programming a discrete input, a PLC command
or serial command, or by an application.
The range for all types of semi-automatic zero is selectable (0% to 100%) plus or
minus from either the calibrated zero point (if power-up zero is disabled) or from
the initial zero setting point (if power-up zero is enabled).
Remote initiation of the semi-automatic Zero command is possible via a discrete
input, an ASCII ‘Z’ command sent serially (CPTZ and SICS), a command initiated
by the PLC interface, or from an application.
Tare
Tare is the weight of an empty container. A tare value subtracts from the gross
weight measurement, providing the computation of the net weight (material without
the container). The tare function can also be used to track the net amount of
material being added to or removed from a vessel or container. In this second
case, the weight of the material in the container is included with the tare weight of
2-13
IND560 User’s Guide
the container as tare. The display then reflects the net amount being added to or
removed from the vessel.
Tare types and associated operations available on the IND560 include:
•
Pushbutton Tare
•
Keyboard Tare (Preset Tare)
— Manual Clear
•
Net Sign Correction
— Auto Clear
•

initiates a semiIf enabled, pressing the pushbutton TARE scale function key
automatic tare. The IND560 will attempt to perform a tare process. If successful,
the display changes to a zero net weight indication and the previous weight on the
scale is stored as the tare value. The net mode will be indicated on the display.
Several conditions could inhibit the pushbutton tare function:
•
Motion – Pushbutton tare cannot be taken when the scale is in motion. If
motion is detected when a pushbutton tare command is received, the IND560
will wait up to three seconds for a no-motion condition. If a stable (no motion)
weight condition occurs before the three seconds expire, the pushbutton tare
command is executed.
•
If there is still motion at the end of three seconds, the command is aborted and
a “Tare Failure–In Motion” error displays.
•
Pushbutton Tare Disabled – If pushbutton tare is configured as disabled, the
TARE scale function key will not initiate a semi-automatic tare.
•
Negative Gross Weight – Any pushbutton tare attempted when the gross weight
is at or below zero is ignored and a “Tare Failed–Too Small” error displays.
Ensure that the gross weight is above zero.
Keyboard Tare
A keyboard (preset) tare is a numeric tare that is entered manually through the
numeric keypad, received serially from a peripheral, or retrieved from the Tare
Table memory. The preset tare value cannot exceed the capacity of the scale. Data
entered is interpreted to have the same units as the current displayed value. Motion
does not impact the entry of preset tare values.
Keyboard tare can be configured in setup as enabled or disabled. When disabled,
the numeric keypad and the TARE scale function key
cannot be used to
obtain a tare.
2-14
IND560 User’s Guide
To enter a preset tare value manually, use the numeric keypad to enter the tare
value (the data entered will display above the softkey with a Data: label) and press
the TARE scale function key
.
If configured in setup, remote equipment can enter a preset tare value using a
serial command or PLC command (see Chapter 3.0, Configuration, the
Communication section, Serial and PLC setup, for further information).
If the preset tare is successful, the display changes to a net weight indication, and
the entered preset tare value is stored as the tare value in the Tare Table.
Several conditions could inhibit the preset tare function:
•
Keyboard Tare Disabled – If keyboard tare is configured in setup as disabled,
the numeric keypad and the TARE scale function key
cannot be used to
obtain a tare.
•
Over-Capacity or Under-Zero Conditions – Preset tare is not allowed when the
weight display indicates over capacity or under zero conditions. Any preset
tare attempted when the scale is over capacity is ignored and a “Tare Failed–
Over Cap” error displays. Any preset tare attempted when the weight display
indicates an under zero condition is ignored and a “Tare Failed–Too Small”
error displays.
Preset tare can be entered in free format. If the entered value does not match the
displayed weight decimal point location or display interval, the entered tare value
is rounded to the nearest display interval and the decimal point adjusted to match
the gross weight. The rounding method is that 0.5 or more of a display interval (d)
is increased to the next display interval and 0.49 or less of a display interval is
decreased to the next lower display interval.
When entering a preset tare value less than 1.0, the operator can enter the data
without the leading zero (left of the decimal point), but all subsequent display,
storage, or printing of this value will include the leading zero. For example, a
preset tare entry of .05 will display as 0.05.
If a preset tare has already been established and another preset tare is entered, the
second preset tare replaces the previous value (it does not add to the previous
value). The replacement tare can be larger or smaller than the original tare value.
Tare Table
The IND560 terminal contains a tare table with 25 records for storing tare weights
that can be recalled by the operator, instead of manually entering them for each
transaction. This is especially useful when certain tare values are used repeatedly.
A 20 character description can be included for each record. This can be used to
help distinguish one tare record from another. Each tare record in the tare table
also contains a totalization field. When totalization is enabled for the tare table,
each time a transaction is completed using a specific tare ID, the selected weight
value (gross or net weight) will be added to the total and the corresponding
counter will be incremented by one.
2-15
IND560 User’s Guide
A tare memory can be recalled by either picking from a list of all available records
or if the ID for the tare value is know, it can be “quick” accessed (refer to the Quick
Access section, below). A printed report of the records in the Tare Table is also
available. Additional details about the tare table are explained in Appendix C, Table
and Log File Structure.
Net Sign Correction
Net sign correction enables the terminal to be used for both shipping (inbound
empty) and receiving (inbound loaded) operations. Net sign correction can be
either disabled or enabled on the IND560. See Chapter 3.0, Configuration, the
Scale section, for further information about disabling and enabling net sign
correction.
If net sign correction is disabled in setup, any stored weight value in the tare
register is assumed to be a tare regardless of the gross weight present on the scale
at the time of the final transaction and net values can be negative.
If net sign correction is enabled, the terminal will switch the gross weight and tare
weight fields when necessary, so that the larger weight is the gross weight, the
smaller weight is the tare weight, and the difference is always a positive net
weight. Net sign correction affects the display, stored data, weight recall, and
printed data.
Net sign correction will operate with pushbutton tare, preset tare, or tare memories.
An example of weight values with and without net sign correction is shown in
Table 2-3. In this example, the tare register value is 53 kg and the live weight on
the scale is 16 kg.

“T” or “PT”.
Auto Tare
The IND560 can be configured so that tare is automatically taken (auto tare) after
the weight on the scale exceeds a programmed tare threshold weight. Auto tare
can be configured in setup as enabled or disabled. When auto tare is enabled, the
display changes to a zero net weight indication after the weight exceeds the
threshold value. The previous weight on the scale is stored in the Alibi Table as the
tare value. Auto tare operations involve:
2-16
IND560 User’s Guide
•
Tare Threshold Weight – When weight on the scale platform exceeds the tare
threshold value, the terminal automatically tares.
•
Reset Threshold Weight – The reset threshold weight must be less than the tare
threshold weight. When the weight on the scale platform falls below the reset
threshold value, such as when a load has been removed, the terminal
automatically resets the auto tare trigger.
•
Motion Check – A motion check is provided to control the re-arming of the auto
tare function. If disabled, the auto tare trigger will be reset as soon as the
weight falls below the reset value. If enabled, the weight must settle to nomotion below the reset threshold before the next auto tare can be initiated.
Several conditions could inhibit the auto tare function:
•
Motion – Auto tare cannot be taken when the scale is in motion. If motion is
detected after the weight on the scale exceeds a preset tare threshold weight,
the IND560 will wait for a no-motion condition. If a stable (no motion) weight
condition occurs within three seconds, the auto tare command is executed.
•
Auto Tare Disabled – Auto tare can be configured in setup as enabled or
disabled.
Clearing Tare
Tare values can be cleared manually or automatically.
Manual Clear
on the numeric keypad
Manually clear tare values by pressing the CLEAR key
when the IND560 is in the net mode and has completed the weighing operation.
Motion on the scale will not impact a manual clear.
If configured in setup, pressing the ZERO scale function key
will first clear the
tare, then issue a zero command (see Chapter 3.0, Configuration, the Scale
section, Auto Clear).
Auto Clear
The IND560 can be configured to clear tare automatically when the weight returns
to a value below a programmable threshold, or when a print command is issued.
Once the tare is cleared, the display returns to the gross weighing mode.
Auto clear is disabled or enabled in setup. If auto clear is enabled the following
parameters, configured in setup, affect the auto clear operation:
•
Clear Threshold Weight – The clear threshold weight is the gross weight value
below which the IND560 will automatically clear a tare after settling to a value
above this threshold value.
•
Motion Check – A motion check is provided to control the automatic clearing
of tare. If the motion check is disabled, the tare value is cleared as soon as the
weight drops below the threshold weight (auto clear threshold), regardless of
the motion status.
2-17
IND560 User’s Guide
•
If the motion check is enabled, after meeting the requirements for weight value
above and then below the threshold weight (auto clear threshold), the IND560
waits for a no-motion condition before automatically clearing the tare.
•
Clear After Print – If enabled, tare is automatically cleared and the scale
returned to the gross mode after data has been transmitted by pressing the
or from a remote source.
PRINT scale function key
See Chapter 3.0, Configuration, the Scale section, Auto Clear for further information
about configuring auto clear.
Unit Switching
In order to support locations and applications that utilize multiple measurement
units, the IND560 supports unit switching. The UNIT SWITCHING softkey
enables switching between primary units (the main unit of measure) and alternate
units (second or third units).
When the UNIT SWITCHING softkey
is pressed, the display changes from the
primary unit to the second unit. When this softkey is pressed again, the display
switches to the third unit (if one has been programmed) or returns to the primary
unit. Each subsequent time the UNIT SWITCHING softkey
is pressed the
IND560 continues to switch the unit through the same sequence.
When units are switched, the units value changes to the correspondingly selected
units, and the conversion of the display value occurs. The display division
changes to an equivalent weight value in the switched unit (for example, from
0.02 lb to 0.01 kg) and the decimal location switches to accommodate the
conversion.
When switching units, the capacity of the converted units is dictated by the original
number of divisions established in the capacity and increments area of setup. In
some situations, this may reduce the capacity of the terminal when converting to
second or third units.
Expand By 10
The EXPAND BY 10 softkey
is used to increase the selected weight display
resolution by one additional digit. For example, a weight display of 40.96 could
increase by one additional digit to display as 40.958. The Expand By Ten mode is
indicated on the display by x10, which displays below the weight display. When
the EXPAND BY TEN softkey
is pressed again, the display reverts to the
normal display of weight.
If programmed as approved with the metrology switch (SW1-1) ON, the Expand
By Ten mode is displayed for five seconds then automatically returns to normal
resolution. Printing is disabled when the weight is expanded and the terminal is
programmed as approved.
2-18
IND560 User’s Guide
Print
The print function (demand print) can be initiated by pressing the PRINT
function key on the main keyboard, by using custom print trigger softkeys or by
automatic print settings. Demand printing of data may also be initiated as part of a
particular sequence of operation or special application software. A ‘Printing’ system
message (visible in Figure 2-9) appears for 5 seconds when the terminal is
carrying out a print command.
Print Interlock
Print Interlock is designed to enforce a single print output per transaction. Print
Interlock can be disabled or enabled. If enabled, the print command is ignored
until the measured gross weight exceeds the print interlock threshold. After the first
print command is executed, subsequent print commands are ignored until the
gross weight indication falls below the print interlock reset threshold. If a print
command is blocked by print Interlock, a synchronous “2nd Print Prohibited” error
is generated and a “Print Not Ready” message appears in the system line.
Automatic Print
Automatic initiation of a demand print occurs after the gross weight exceeds the
minimum threshold and there is no motion on the scale. After initiation, the gross
weight must return below the reset threshold before a subsequent automatic print
can occur.
Automatic print may be disabled or enabled. Automatic print can be triggered and
reset by weight exceeding thresholds or by weight deviation from a previously
stable reading.
Repeat Print
The Repeat Print softkey
permits the output of the most recent Demand Print
or a Custom Print from an application, to be printed again with a DUPLICATE
header or footer to distinguish it from the original print.
to
To enable the Repeat Print function, simply add the Repeat Print softkey

Print connection listed in the assignments found in Setup at Communication >
Connections.
An output template can be flagged with a “DUPLICATE” header or footer to indicate
that the data in the output template was generated as a repeat of a previous
communication.
MinWeigh
Certain industries such as pharmaceutical and food require a guarantee that the
weighing equipment selected for a particular measurement is adequate for the task.
One way to ensure that appropriate weighing equipment is selected is by the
2-19
IND560 User’s Guide
creation and use of a minimum weighment value (MinWeigh), below which a
particular piece of weighing equipment cannot be used.
When the MinWeigh function is enabled, the MINWEIGH softkey
can be
pressed to initiate the MinWeigh function, which compares the current net weight
with the programmed MinWeigh value. If the net weight is greater than or equal to
MinWeigh, all equipment functions behave normally. If the absolute value of the
net weight is less than MinWeigh, the weight display includes a flashing MinWeigh
symbol to the left of the weight. If the user attempts to record the weight while in
this condition, the printout will include an asterisk (∗).
For specific step-by-step instructions on how to set up MinWeigh, see Chapter 3.0,

Target Comparison
Target comparison is used to compare either the gross or net weight on the scale
to a predetermined target value. This feature can be useful in both automatic and
manual processes. As an example, an automatic filling system using target
2-20
IND560 User’s Guide
comparison could provide a Start signal to the IND560 and the IND560 could
control the feeder system to fill a container to a desired target.
An example of a manual process could be a checkweighing station where an
operator is checking net weight of packages. The IND560 can use its target
comparison feature to provide a bright Over - OK - Under indication to help the
operator determine if the weight of each package is acceptable or not compared to
an ideal weight.
Target (setpoint) comparison is most often used in two types of applications:
Material transfer applications – Requires that a control device deactivate
when a target value is achieved
Over/Under applications – Classify a load placed on the scale platform as
above or below the target value or within the target tolerance range
The IND560 target comparison rate (for analog load cell scales) is 50
comparisons per second. The comparison rate for high precision IDNet bases is
dependent upon the module in the base.
See Chapter 3.0, Configuration, the Application section, Memory, Target Table and
Operation, Target for further information about configuring parameters for target
comparison operations.
Material Transfer Applications
If the target comparison of the IND560 will be used to control the flow of material,
the application can be classified as a Material Transfer application. These types of
applications are usually automated but can also be manual. A single or two-speed
feeding system is used to either add weight to or remove weight from the scale.
The terminal monitors the change in weight and compares it to a previously
entered target and other control parameters.
The following definitions explain some terms used in Material Transfer
applications:
Abort
After a target comparison process has been paused, it can be
totally stopped by pressing the Abort softkey
under the
Target Control softkey
or by triggering a Target
Pause/Abort discrete input. If abort is selected, the target
comparison process is aborted.
Coincidence Outputs
A coincidence output is always active and does not require a
start or stop signal. If the weight on the scale is below the target
minus the spill value, the outputs are “on”. If the weight is
above the target minus the spill value, the outputs are “off”.
This type of output typically requires external logic to provide
the required control for feeding systems.
2-21
IND560 User’s Guide
2-22
Concurrent Outputs
This describes the operation of the feed output in a 2-speed
feeding system. If the feeder type is programmed as concurrent,
the feed output will turn on when the fast feed output turns on
and continue to operate until the weight reaches the target
minus the spill value. Both the fast feed output and the feed
output are active at the beginning of a target comparison. It is
the opposite of independent outputs.
Fast Feed Output
This refers to the physical output connection that is used for the
faster feed in a 2-speed feeding system. This output is not used
in a single speed feeding system.
Feed Output
This refers to the physical output connection that is used for the
slower feed in a 2-speed feeding system or the only feed output
in a single speed feeding system.
Fine Feed
The value entered for the amount of material that will be fed in
the slower rate of feed in a 2-speed feeding system. This value
and the spill value are subtracted from the target to determine
the point that the fast feed output turns off.
Independent Outputs
This describes the operation of the feed output in a 2-speed
feeding system. If the feeder type is programmed as
independent, the feed output does not turn on until the fast feed
output turns off. Only one feeder speed is active at a time. It is
the opposite of concurrent outputs.
Latched Outputs
Latched outputs turn off at the target weight minus the spill
value and remain off (regardless of additional weight changes)
until a “start” signal is received. These types of outputs do not
usually require external logic to perform standard weigh-in or
weigh-out sequences.
Material Transfer
Mode
The target comparison mode that provides control for delivering
a measured amount of material from one container or vessel to
another. The transfer can apply to material entering or leaving a
container or vessel. It includes the traditional terms such as
weigh-in, weigh-out, filling, and dosing.
Pause
A pause function is provided in target comparison control in
case a target comparison must be temporarily paused. This
can be done by pressing the Pause softkey
under the
Target Control softkey
or by triggering a discrete input
programmed as Target Pause/Abort. When paused, power is
removed from the Feed and Fast Feed (if used) discrete
outputs. After a target comparison has been paused, the
process can either be resumed or aborted.
Resume
After a target comparison process has been paused, it may be
resumed by pressing the Resume softkey
or by triggering a
discrete input programmed as Target Start/Resume. When a
target comparison is resumed, it continues to use the original
target values.
IND560 User’s Guide
Spill
The amount of material that will be added (on a weigh-in) or
removed (on a weigh-out) from the scale after the final feed is
turned off. In a weigh-in process, this is the material in
suspension that will still fall onto the scale when the feed is
turned off. This value is subtracted from the target value to
determine when the feed output turns off.
Start
When using latched targets, the default condition is with the
latch set or in the “off” condition. To turn any outputs “on”, a
,a
start signal is required. This could be the Start softkey
discrete input programmed as Target Start/Resume, or via the
.
Target Control softkey
Target
The target is the weight value that is the end goal of the
material transfer process. If a container should be filled with 10
kg of material, the target value is 10 kg.
Tolerance
The weight range above and below the target value that will be
acceptable as an “in tolerance” target comparison. The
tolerance can either be entered as a weight deviation from the
target or a percentage deviation from the target depending upon
setup.
Target Control
Two different levels of target control are provided by the terminal for the Material
Transfer mode. Latching outputs must be enabled to utilize either type of
automated control. For simple applications, only the START softkey
is needed
to begin the target comparison process. No other control is provided. The
comparison runs to completion then the latch sets the outputs FALSE until the
START softkey
is pressed the next time.
For those applications where more control is needed for an occasional pause or to
abort a comparison process, the TARGET CONTROL softkey
is used. Pressing
the TARGET CONTROL softkey provides a dedicated display for the target
comparison with the comparison status and appropriate softkeys shown. Possible
status modes are “Ready”, “Running” or “Paused”. The appropriate control softkeys
include START
, PAUSE
and STOP
.An example of each target control
display is shown in Figure 2-10, Figure 2-11 and Figure 2-12.

Over/Under Applications
If the target comparison of the IND560 will be used to checkweigh the weight of a
product, the application can be classified as an Over/Under application. These
types of applications are usually manual processes but can also be automated.
The SmartTrac display indicates the classification of the weight placed on the scale
and discrete I/O can be used to trigger external lights or other controls. The
terminal compares the current weight to a previously entered target with tolerance
values or to zone limits and indicates the results. The following definitions will
explain some terms used in Over/Under applications. The following definitions
apply to over/under applications:
2-24
Over Limit
If a tolerance mode of “Weight value” is selected in setup, the
IND560 does not require the entry of a target value. In this mode,
only the upper and lower limits for the OK zone are entered. When
programmed for this mode, the over limit value is the maximum
weight that will be classified as OK. Any weight above than this
value will be classified as Over.
Over/Under Mode
The target comparison mode that provides three zone
classifications for weight placed on the scale. The classification
can be Under if the weight is below the target minus the -tolerance,
OK if within the tolerance range or Over if the weight is above the
target plus the +tolerance.
Target
The target is the ideal weight value for the product being tested. If a
container should weigh exactly 10 kg, the target value is 10 kg.
Tolerance
The weight range above and below the target value that will be
acceptable as “OK” in the target comparison. The tolerance can
either be entered as a weight deviation from the target, a
percentage deviation from the target or as absolute weight (zone
IND560 User’s Guide
edges) depending upon setup.
Under Limit
If a tolerance mode of “Weight value” is selected in setup, the
IND560 does not require the entry of a target value. In this mode,
only the upper and lower limits for the OK zone are entered. When
programmed for this mode, the under limit value is the minimum
weight that will be classified as OK. Any weight below than this
value will be classified as Under.
Zones
The IND560 provides 3 different classifications or “zones” in the
Over/Under mode. The zones are Under, OK and Over.

Record Selection Using Shared Data
Alternatively, the Shared Data server can be used to activate target records stored
in the Target Table. Refer to the Shared Data Access section of Appendix D,
Communications, and the Shared Data Reference found on the documentation CD
for specific instructions.
Target Units
If second and/or third units are established in the IND560, target records that
utilize either second or third units can be retrieved from the Target Table into Active
Target status. The IND560 will convert the retrieved record into active units when
the record is recalled. Pressing the TARGET softkey
will show the original units
as recalled from the Target Table.
If an attempt is made to retrieve a record from the Target Table that does not use
primary, second or third units, a “Units Mis-match” error will display indicating that
record recall was unsuccessful.
Comparators
Comparators are simple targets, five of which can be configured in setup. They are
controlled either by coincidence or by comparison with a range. The source for
comparison can be the Gross Weight, Displayed Weight, Rate or assigned by a
custom TaskExpert application. When assigned to the home screen, the
permits direct access to the Comparators. This screen
Comparator softkey
displays each Comparator’s ID, Description, Limit, Unit, High Limit (if applicable)
and Active operator. Only the limit value/s can be edited. To edit parameters other
than limits, the Comparator configuration screen must be accessed in setup.
2-26
IND560 User’s Guide
To access a comparator’s limit editing page directly from the home screen, press
the ID number of the Comparator, then the Comparator softkey. If the ID number is
not known, press the Comparator softkey
, use the UP/DOWN keys to select
the desired Comparator from the list, and press the Edit softkey
.
When the Active value is <, <=, =, >= or >, the selected source is compared to a
target weight. When the Active value is within (>_ _<) or outside (_< >_) a range,
the selected source is compared to a range defined by the Limit and High Limit
values.
Using Comparators
To use a Comparator, it must be assigned to a discrete output.
Target Value Comparators
In this case, the output will be triggered depending on the Active setting. For
example, if the Active operator is <= (less than or equal to) and the Limit is 1000
kg, the output will turn OFF when the measured value reaches 1000 kg.
Range Comparators
In the case of a Range mode Comparator, the Limit value sets the lower of the two
rates that define the range, within or outside (depending on the operator) which the
output is active. For example, if the Active operator is Within (>_ _<), the Limit is
3.0 kg/sec and the High Limit is 8 kg/sec, the output will be active provided the
rate remains between 3 and 8 kg/sec. If the rate falls below 3 or exceeds 8 kg/sec,
the output will turn OFF.
Note that the Rate value configured in setup at Scale > Rate permits weight
and time units to be defined, together with the period between measurements
and the number of measurements to average to generate the output value.
If the weight information in the terminal becomes invalid, the Rate display will
show 0.000.
A Range Comparator can also use displayed or gross weight as its source. For
example, if displayed weight (possibly a net value, allowing for the weight of a
hopper) is the source, the Active operator is Outside, and the Limit and High Limit
are 1000 kg and 1500 kg respectively, the output will remain active as long as
the source value is below 1000 kg. In this case a large enough value for the High
Limit should be set to ensure that, once the Limit is reached and the output turned
off, there is not sufficient spill to reach the High Limit and reactivate the output.
ID
The ID function provides a convenient and simple way to ensure that a specific
sequence of operation is carried out the same way each time. Each step can
include an on-screen message that instructs the operator to perform an action, or a
prompt asking the operator to enter some information. These steps may include
data entry (using the numeric keypad, alphanumeric keys, or some other input
such as a barcode scanner) and actions (such as placing a package on the scale,
2-27
IND560 User’s Guide
taking a tare, or printing a ticket for the transaction). When a step is completed,
pressing the ENTER key moves to the next one.
As many as 20 steps may be programmed, and the sequence can be triggered in
one of two ways:
•
Manually, using the ID softkey
•
Automatically, by threshold and reset weight readings from the scale
If the sequence is triggered manually, it may be programmed to loop, repeating all
steps until either the EXIT softkey
is pressed, or an ESC softkey
is
pressed while an alphanumeric entry field is selected.
When ID mode is set to function automatically, placing on the scale a weight that
exceeds a pre-configured threshold value initiates the sequence. When all the steps
have been performed and the weight is removed, the reading from the scale falls
below a reset value. At this point the terminal is ready to begin the next ID
sequence.
For details on ID mode configuration, refer to Chapter 3.0, Configuration.
SmartTrac™
SmartTrac is a graphical display visualization of either the gross or net weight as
selected in setup. SmartTrac on the IND560 uses a bar graph visualization type for
Material Transfer mode and a three-zone graphic for Over/Under mode.
Material Transfer Mode
The operator adds material until the measured value is within an acceptable
tolerance limit. Normally an operator will add material quickly when the container
is not nearly full and more slowly as the target value approaches.
The SmartTrac display may be configured in setup as Small, Medium or Large.
Each size provides different target and weight information on the display. Figure
2-13 shows the small size, Figure 2-14 shows the medium size, and Figure 2-15
shows the large size.

While the bar graph display appears to be one continuous bar graph, it can
actually be broken into four separate sections or ranges. Depending upon the
target and tolerance values used, there could be one, two, or three speeds at which
these graphical sections are filled in. Figure 2-16 illustrates the ranges.
Figure 2-16: SmartTrac Bar Graph Display Ranges
Under Tolerance
The Under Tolerance range is labeled “A” in Figure 2-16. This range represents the
amount of material from 10% of the target value to the target minus the negative
tolerance value. The bar graph begins to populate the “A” range when more than
10% of the target has been added. Until reaching the 10% point, no fill is shown.
Acceptable Under Tolerance
Region B in Figure 2-16 represents the zone of acceptable tolerance below the
target value.
On Target
When the measured value exactly equals the target value an unfilled triangle
indication displays (see Figure 2-17).

Acceptable Over Tolerance
Region C in Figure 2-16 represents the zone of acceptable tolerance above the
target value.
Over Tolerance
Region D in Figure 2-16 represents the zone of unacceptable tolerance above the
target value. In Region D, the fill rate reverts to the same rate as used in Region A.
If the measured value is large enough that the number of dot columns required for
display exceeds the number available, the display saturates and further increases
in the measured value do not affect it.
Over/Under Mode
There are three sizes of Over/Under SmartTrac selectable in setup. Each size
provides different target and weight information on the display. Figure 2-18 shows
the small size, Figure 2-19 shows the medium size, and Figure 2-20 shows the
large size. Note that Figure 2-18 shows a composite display with under, OK and
over graphics displayed simultaneously.

Less than 10% of Target
Until the weight on the scale reaches 10% of the target value, the Under symbol is
shown as a dashed line symbol
or
, and the discrete outputs are
disabled. The Under zone symbol becomes solid and the discrete outputs become
active when more than 10% of the target has been added.
Under Zone
The Under zone is shown in Figure 2-18 as the symbol to the left and also in
Figure 2-19. This zone classification is shown when the weight on the scale is
greater than 10% of the target but less than the target value minus the -tolerance
value. If a discrete output has been assigned to the Under Zone, that output will be
“on” when the weight is in this zone.
OK Zone
When the weight on the scale is between the target minus the -tolerance and the
target plus the +tolerance, the OK symbol is shown. This symbol is the same
symbol for all sizes of SmartTrac and shown in Figure 2-18 as the center symbol.
If a discrete output has been assigned as Tolerance - OK, that output will be “on”
when the weight is in this zone.
Over Zone
The Over zone is shown in Figure 2-18 as the symbol to the right and also in
Figure 2-20. This zone classification is shown when the weight on the scale is
greater than the target value plus the +tolerance value. If a discrete output has
been assigned to the Over Zone, that output will be “on” when the weight is in this
zone.
Time and Date
Time and date are used for reporting, error and transaction log timestamps, and
triggering service events. The TIME & DATE softkey
enables access to the Set
Time & Date screen where the user can set the time and date, including the hours,
minutes, day, month, and year. When the time is set, seconds are set to 0.
Although the format for the time and date can be selected according to local
preferences, the use of a timestamp in log files is not selectable. Timestamp
formats are always fixed as:
Date:
YYYY/MM/DD (for example, July 23, 2005 becomes the fixed format date
2005/07/23)
Time:
HH:MM:SS stored in 24 hour format (for example, 10:01:22 PM becomes

Calibration Test
The IND560 terminal provides a programmable Calibration Test sequence that can
contain up to 25 individual steps. The Calibration Test is designed to lead the
tester through a set of predetermined steps and compare the terminal calibration
with known test weights.
2-33
IND560 User’s Guide
The test is accessed by pressing the CALIBRATION TEST softkey
on the home
page. A screen displays where the name of the tester can be recorded and the
serial number and capacity of each of the test weights used can be entered. This
provides a traceable record for the calibration test.
The calibration test is started by pressing the START softkey
. A display is
shown that provides the active scale weight, the target and tolerance weight
values, and two lines of instructions (as to where to place the weights). When the
tester completes these instructions, he or she presses the OK softkey
and the
terminal compares the actual weight on the scale to the programmed target weight
for this step. If the comparison passes, the test continues to the next step. If it fails,
a message displays that indicates a failure. After acknowledging the error, the
tester can abort the test, retest this step, or skip this step knowing that it failed.
At the end of the complete test, a print can be initiated that prints all the data of the
calibration test. A full description of the calibration test can be found in Chapter
3.0, Configuration, Maintenance, Configure/View, Calibration Test.
CalFREE™
The IND560 terminal provides a method to calibrate a scale without using test
weights. This is based on manual entry of capacity and performance data from the
load cell or load cell platform. This method of calibration can be used for initial
check-out and testing of systems or when a large structure is used as the weighing
vessel and it is not possible to apply test weights to the structure. METTLER
TOLEDO highly recommends that test weights be used whenever possible as this
provides the most accurate method of calibration.

Scale Type
The Scale Type field automatically shows the hardware configuration. This field will
display either Analog or IDNet, along with Remote. If Remote is selected, the
approval option will not be available.
Approval
Approval (analog load cells only) refers to the metrological (weights and
measures) approval configuration for the specific scale. The Approval selection is
not present for IDNet scale bases, but rather is part of the Service Mode of the
base. The selection list can be set to:
• None – no approval is required
• USA
• OIML
• Canada
• Australia
If an approval (USA, OIML, Canada, or Australia) is configured and the metrology
security switch, SW1-1, is set to ON, access to the Scale setup parameters in the
menu tree will be limited to view only.
If an approval is selected but SW1-1 is not ON, it will not be possible to leave
setup, and a message will appear: Switch UNSECURED.
Remote Display
When properly configured, the IND560 can function as a remote display for
another IND560 terminal or for another Mettler Toledo terminal capable of handling
Mettler Toledo Continuous Output. If the Remote IND560 will be used to issue
simple commands to another terminal (referred to as the Master terminal), the
Master must be able to accept Command Inputs (CPTZ).
Physical Connection of Master and Remote
Terminals
Communication for the remote display function occurs over a single serial
connection. Each serial port in the IND560 can support one output and one input
simultaneously, so only a single port is necessary for remote operation.
The standard COM1 port, and optional COM2 and COM3 ports, each support all
three of the assignments used in the remote display function: Remote Display,
Continuous Output and CTPZ Input. Communication can occur via RS-232, RS422 or RS-485, but port parameters must be the same for the Master and Remote
terminals. Serial port setup information can be found in Appendix D,
Communications.

IND560 User’s Guide
Remote Terminal Settings
In the terminal that will function as the Remote terminal, the Scale > Type setting
must be Remote, as shown in Figure 3-7. Note that the Approval option is not
available in this configuration.
Figure 3-7: Scale Type Setting for Remote Operation
In addition, at Communication > Connections, a port must be assigned to Remote
Display, as shown in Figure 3-8.
Figure 3-8: Connection Configured for Remote Operation
It is recommended that prior to setting the Scale type as Remote, the Capacity
and Increment size of the Remote terminal should be set to match the Master
terminal. This will prevent any differences in display fonts that might negatively
affect viewing.
Master Terminal Configuration
The Master terminal must have a port configured to send display information to the
Remote terminal. At Communication > Connections the serial port assignment
must be Continuous Output. If the Remote terminal will be used to send commands
to the Master terminal, then the same port must have a second connection
assignment for CTPZ Input.

CalFREE
The CalFREE procedure is applicable for analog load cells only. The CALFREE
softkey
provides access to the span calculation screen for precalibration of a
scale without test weights. High-precision scale bases are precalibrated when
received from the factory so this feature is not used.
To perform precalibration of span using CalFREE:
1. Press the CALFREE softkey
. The CalFREE screen displays.
2. Enter the load cell capacity and rated load cell output values in the associated
fields:
The total load cell capacity should be entered here. For example, for a tank
with three 5000 kg cells, cell capacity would be 3 x 5000 kg or 15000 kg.
If multiple load cells are used, the average output of all cells should be entered
here.
3. Enter an estimated preload value in the associated field. Estimated preload is
an optional entry. During calculation, the terminal also tests for analog/digital
(A/D) converter input saturation at full scale capacity. Estimated preload is
included in this calculation if entered in this field. If the preload is unknown,
leave this field blank.
This preload value is used only to determine overload conditions and is not
used as a zero reference point. The zero reference point must be captured
using the normal zero calibration procedure.
4. Press the OK softkey
entered.
. The span is calculated using the parameters
5. If the calibration operation was successful, a verification message that reads
“Calibration OK” displays If the calibration operation was not successful, an
error message that reads “Calibration Failure” displays. If the precalibration
fails, repeat the CalFREE procedures. If the precalibration continues to fail,
contact a local METTLER TOLEDO representative for assistance.
6. Press the ESCAPE softkey
to return to the Calibration screen.
Service Mode
Service Mode is available for IDNet load cells only. This screen displays a single
box that shows messages from the IDNet base up to 16 characters. When either
the
(Yes) or
(No) softkey is pressed, the terminal sends the respective
response to the scale base and the next message to be displayed is transmitted
back to the terminal from the base. This sequence remains constant during the
complete service mode communication sequence. Refer to the service mode flow
chart for the IDNet base used to view the exact sequence.
3-14
IND560 User’s Guide
After the last communication from the scale base has been completed, the display
returns to the Scale Type screen.
Analog Saturation Test
During the calibration process, the IND560 will determine if there is a potential for
analog section saturation. The IND560 will compare the available number of
counts with the captured span to confirm that the desired capacity is achievable. If
the potential exists to saturate the analog section before system capacity is
reached, the IND560 will display a warning message and recommendation that
the system be recalibrated with a new, lower, capacity.
Figure 3-10: Analog Saturation Warning
This message functions only as a recommendation to recalibrate. After the warning
message is acknowledged by pressing the ENTER key, the user is presented with
the “Capture Span OK” screen and the BACK softkey. Service personnel should then
carry out the following:
•
Confirm that the analog gain jumper on the main board is set correctly for the
actual load cell output, either 2mV/V or 3mV/V (refer to Appendix A,
Installation, for jumper positions).
•
If the analog gain jumper is correctly set, the scale should be recalibrated with
a lower capacity. Potential analog section saturation does not force a failure in
calibration.
IMPORTANT: It is critical that service personnel follow the recommendation to
recalibrate or confirm that the analog output jumper is properly
positioned on the main board. Analog section saturation will result
in a ‘freeze’ of the display, where the display is no longer showing
increases in weight, creating the possibility of overfills and spills
during the weighing process.
Zero
This section provides access to Auto Zero Maintenance (AZM) settings, under zero
blanking, power-up zero, and pushbutton zero parameters.
AZM & Display
AZM is a means of tracking zero when the scale is empty. AZM compensates for
conditions such as terminal or load cell drift or debris on a scale platform.
3-15
IND560 User’s Guide
Auto Zero
Use the AZM & Display setup screen to enable auto zero for gross weighing or
gross and net weighing, or to turn auto zero off.
Auto Zero Range
Analog load cells: Set the auto zero range for the number of divisions (d) around
the current zero setting in which auto zero will operate.
IDNet load cells: Either enable or disable the auto zero function.
Under Zero Blanking
The Under Zero Blanking function in the Zero setup is available for analog load
cells only. Blanking of the display is used to indicate an under-zero condition
when the weight on the scale falls below the current zero reference. Set the under
zero blanking for the number of divisions (d) that the terminal is permitted to go
under zero before blanking.
A value of 99 disables blanking under zero and the terminal will display a
weight as far under zero as possible.
Power Up
A Power Up setting of Restart enables the terminal to save and reuse the last zero
reference weight after a power cycle so it returns to the same gross weight value. If
reset is selected, the last zero calibration value will be used as the zero reference
point. Select either Reset or Restart from the Power Up selection box.
Ranges
Use the settings on the Ranges screen to enable or disable Power Up Zero and
Pushbutton Zero and to set the ranges around the original zero condition for the
scale for applying these functions.
Power Up Zero
The Power Up Zero function in the Zero setup is available for analog load cells
only. If Power Up Zero is enabled, the terminal tries to capture zero upon power up.
Range
The Range setting for Power Up Zero is available for analog load cells only. If
Power Up Zero is enabled, –Range and +Range fields will display for setting the
range around the original zero condition for the scale within which Power Up Zero
can be applied. The range units are percent.
For example, if the +Range setting for Power Up Zero is set at 2%, Power Up Zero
will only occur when the weight reading on the scale is at or below 2% of the
original zero condition. If the –Range setting for pushbutton zero is set at 2%,
Power Up Zero will only occur when the weight reading on the scale is at or above
–2% of the original zero condition.
If Power Up Zero capture is enabled and the weight on the scale is outside of
the zero capture range, the display will indicate EEE until the weight is
removed and zero is captured.

Pushbutton Zero
If Pushbutton Zero is enabled, the front panel ZERO pushbutton will operate to
capture zero reference points.
If Pushbutton Zero is Disabled, execution of a remote Zero is still possible via
SICS, CPTZ, or SMA commands from a PC, Discrete Inputs or from the PLC
commands.
Range
The Range setting for Pushbutton Zero is available for analog load cells only. If
Power If Pushbutton Zero is enabled, –Range and +Range fields will display for
setting the range around the original zero condition for the scale within which
Pushbutton Zero can be applied. The range units are percent.
For example, if the +Range setting for Pushbutton Zero is set at 2%, the
Pushbutton Zero can only be used when the weight reading on the scale is at or
below 2% of the original zero condition. If the –Range setting for Pushbutton Zero
is set at 2%, the Pushbutton Zero can only be used when the weight reading on
the scale is at or above –2% of the original zero condition.
Tare
Tare is used to subtract the weight of an empty container from the gross weight on
the scale to determine the net weight of the contents. Tare is inhibited if the scale is
in motion.
Three setup screens are available to configure tare:
Tare Types
Auto Tare
Auto Clear
Tare Types
Use the Tare Types setup screen to enable or disable pushbutton tare, keyboard
tare, net sign correction, terminal tare (IDNet load cells only).
Pushbutton Tare
When pushbutton tare is enabled, the TARE scale function key
can be
pressed when an empty container is on the scale to determine tare. The terminal
displays a zero weight and net mode. When the container is loaded and placed
back on the scale, the terminal displays the net weight of the contents.
If Pushbutton Tare is Disabled, execution of a remote Tare is still possible via
SICS, CPTZ, or SMA commands from a PC, Discrete Inputs or from the PLC
commands.
Keyboard Tare
When keyboard tare is enabled, the known value for the empty weight of a
container (tare) can be entered manually. The terminal will then display the net
weight of the contents of the container. Keyboard tares are automatically rounded
to the closest display division.
3-17
IND560 User’s Guide
Net Sign Correction
Net sign correction enables the IND560 terminal to be used for both shipping
(inbound empty) and receiving (inbound loaded) operations. If net sign correction
is enabled, the terminal will switch the gross and tare weight fields on the printed
ticket, if necessary, so that the larger weight is the gross weight, the smaller weight
is the tare weight, and the difference is always a positive net weight. Net sign
correction affects the printed data output, the recalled weigh display and the
displayed weight. Continuous data output will continue to show a negative net
weight value.
Net sign correction will operate with pushbutton tare, preset tare, or tare memories.
An example of weight values with and without net sign correction is shown in
Table 3-1. In this example, the tare register value is 53 kg and the live weight on
the scale is 16 kg.

Terminal Tare
The Terminal Tare field only displays when an IDNet scale base is present. When
terminal tare is enabled, tare and net weight values are calculated in the terminal
and not in the high precision IDNet base. Terminal Tare should be disabled for
approved (legal-for-trade) systems.
Auto Tare
Use the Auto Tare screen to enable or disable automatic tare and to set the tare and
reset threshold weights, and enable or disable motion check.
Auto Tare
When auto tare is enabled, the tare weight is taken automatically when a container
above the threshold weight is on the scale and settles to no-motion.
Tare Threshold Wt.
When weight on the scale platform exceeds the tare threshold value and settles to
no-motion, the terminal automatically tares.
Reset Threshold Weight
The reset threshold weight must be less than the tare threshold weight. When the
weight on the scale platform falls below the reset threshold value, such as when a
3-18
IND560 User’s Guide
load has been removed, the terminal automatically resets the auto tare trigger,
depending upon the programming of motion checking.
Motion Check
Enable the motion check setting to prevent auto tare reset rigger from occurring
when the scale is in motion. When enabled, the scale must detect a non-motion
condition below the reset value to reset the trigger.
Auto Clear
Use the Auto Clear screen to enable or disable auto clear tare, clear after print, to
set the clear threshold weight, and enable or disable motion checking for auto
clearing of tare.
Auto Clear Tare
To clear tare automatically when the scale returns to below the threshold weight,
enable the auto clear tare setting.
Clear Threshold Wt.
When the gross scale weight exceeds then falls below the clear threshold weight
value, the terminal automatically clears tare and returns to gross mode.
Motion Check
The Motion Check field displays only when Auto Clear Tare is enabled. Enable the
motion check setting to prevent auto clear from occurring when the scale is in
motion.
Clear After Print
The Clear After Print field displays only when Auto Clear Tare is enabled. To clear
tare automatically after printing, enable the clear after print setting.
Clear With Zero
To clear tare automatically when capturing zero, enable the clear with zero setting.
Power Up
A Power Up setting of Restart enables the terminal to save and reuse the last tare
weight after a power cycle. If Reset is selected, the terminal returns to gross mode
upon power up and the last tare weight after the power cycle is cleared. Select
either Restart or Reset from the Power Up selection box.
Units
This setup screen enables the selection of a second and a third unit and power up
units.
Second Unit and Third Unit

units those that were active when power was removed.
Custom Units
If Custom is selected for second or third units, three additional fields display for
configuring custom units. The terminal displays the first three letters of the custom
name in the units area of the display when custom units are in use.
Custom Factor
Enter a multiplication factor for the custom unit in this field, such as 0.592 or
1.019. The primary unit is multiplied by the custom factor to obtain the custom
value.
Custom Name
The softkeys turn into alpha keys when this field is selected. Use the alpha keys to
enter the name for the custom unit. Up to 12 characters may be entered.
Custom Increment
Enter a custom increment in this field, such as 0.1 or 0.5. This step controls both
the decimal position and the increment size of the custom unit value.
Rate
A Rate, expressed as change in primary or secondary weight units per time unit,
may be programmed for display on the IND560 (Figure 3-11) and/or used in
controlling discrete outputs – for example as the source for a Comparator
(described later in this chapter).
The Rate display is over-ridden by SmartTrac. If SmartTrac is enabled, the Rate
display option is not available in the Terminal > Display screen.
If the weight information in the terminal becomes invalid, the Rate display will
show 0.000.

IND560 User’s Guide
Figure 3-11: Rate Display on Home Screen
The following Rate parameters can be configured:
Weight Units
Weight Units may be set to None, Primary or Secondary. Primary and Secondary
correspond to the Units setting in the Scale > Capacity & Increment screen.
Secondary Units must be enabled at Scale > Units in order for secondary to be a
unit selection for the Rate function. When the default value, None, is selected, the
rate function is disabled.
Time Units
Time Units may be set to Seconds, Minutes or Hours. The default value is Seconds.
Measurement Period
The Measurement Period value sets the frequency of weight measurements. 1
second is the default value. Other options are 0.5 and 5 seconds.
Output Average
Output from the rate function is set by a computed rolling average of
measurements. This possible range of values is 1 to 99 seconds, with a default
value of 1. The Output Average value should be sufficiently larger than the
Measurement Period to allow the terminal to take multiple measurements for each
average.
Filter
The IND560 terminal has a low-pass, multi-pole vibration filter that can be set for
several conditions when using analog load cells. The heavier the filtering, the slower
the display settling time will be.
Low Pass Frequency
Low Pass Frequency configuration is available for analog load cells only. Low pass
frequency is the frequency above which all disturbances are filtered out. The lower
the frequency, the better the disturbance rejection, but the longer the settling time
required for the scale.
Low Pass # of Poles
Low Pass # of Poles configuration is available for analog load cells only. The
number of poles determines the slope of the filtering cutoff. For most applications, a
slope value of 8 is acceptable; however, decreasing this number will improve settling
time slightly.
3-21
IND560 User’s Guide
Notch Filter Frequency
Notch Filter Frequency configuration is available for analog load cells only. The notch
filter allows selection of one specific frequency below the low pass filter value that
can also be filtered out. This enables setting the low pass filter higher to filter out all
but one frequency (that the notch filter will handle) and obtain a faster settling time.
Values from 0 (disable) to 99 are possible.
Stability Filter
Stability Filter configuration is available for analog load cells only. The stability filter
works in conjunction with the standard low pass filter to provide a more stable final
weight reading. The stability filter should only be used in transaction weighing
applications, since the nonlinear action of the filter switching may cause inaccurate
cutoffs in batching or filling applications. The stability filter can be enabled or
disabled on this setup screen.
IDNet Filtering
Configuration for IDNet filtering parameters is performed on the Filter screen. Use the
Vibration selection box to select a condition setting that reflects the specific location’s
conditions. Selections include:
Ideal Conditions
The weighing platform operates very quickly. However, it is very
sensitive. This setting is suitable for a very calm and stable
weighing location.
Average Conditions
This is the factory default setting and is suitable for most normal
environments.
Extreme Conditions
The base reacts to changes in weight more slowly but is much
more stable in unstable environments.
Use the Weighing Process selection box to select the specific weighing process in
use. Selections include:
Fine Filling
Used when liquid or fine powders are being weighed
Universal Weighing
For solid materials coarse filling or checkweighing
Static Weighing
For solid materials and weighing under extreme conditions such
as strong vibrations
Dynamic Weighing
For weighing products that will not be fully stable or still during
the weighing process
Stability
The IND560 terminal includes a stability detector (weight in motion). For analog
load cells, the Stability setup screen enables setting a motion range, no-motion
interval and timeout period. For IDNet bases, a stability measure and timeout period
may be set.
3-22
IND560 User’s Guide
Analog Load Cell Stability
Motion Range
Sets the motion range to the weight value (in divisions) that the weight is permitted
to fluctuate and still have a no-motion condition. Values from 0.1 to 99.9 are
possible with the default value being 1.0.
No-motion Interval
The no motion interval defines the amount of time (seconds) that the scale weight
must be within the motion range to have a no-motion condition. Values from 0.0
(motion detection disabled) to 2.0 are possible, the default value being 0.3
seconds. A shorter interval means that a no-motion condition is more likely, but may
make weight measurement less precise.
Timeout
Defines the period (in seconds) after which the terminal stops attempting to perform
a function that requires a no-motion condition (such as a zero, tare or print
command) and aborts the function. This timeout is used regardless of the source of
the command such as the keypad, discrete input, PLC or SICS. Values from 0 to 99
are possible, the default value being 3. A smaller value means that less time will be
used to check for no-motion before aborting a command. When a value of 0 is
entered, there must be no motion when a command is given or it will fail
immediately. A value of 99 is a special condition which permits the terminal to wait
indefinitely for a no-motion condition - a command would never be aborted.
IDNet Stability
Stability
Stability settings for IDNet load cells are configured by selecting a number setting of
0 (disabled), 1 (fast display, good repeatability), 2 (slower display, better
repeatability), 3 (slower display, better repeatability), or 4 (very slow display, very
good repeatability) in the Stability selection box.
Timeout
Defines the period (in seconds) after which the terminal stops attempting to perform
a function that requires a no-motion condition (such as zero or tare) and aborts the
function. This timeout is used regardless of the source of the command such as the
keypad, discrete input, PLC or SICS. Values from 0 to 99 are possible with the
default value being 3. A smaller value means that less time will be used to check for
no-motion before aborting a command. When a value of 0 is entered, there must be
no-motion when a command is given or it will fail immediately. A value of 99 is a
special condition which permits the terminal to wait indefinitely for a no-motion
condition - a command would never be aborted.
Log or Print
The Log or Print setup branch is where the thresholds to control how and when data
is saved or output to a printer are defined. Normal demand mode printing occurs
whenever a print request is made, providing there is no motion on the scale and zero
has been captured (a negative gross weight will not be printed).
3-23
IND560 User’s Guide
The weight values entered are the gross weight values in primary units. Gross
weight in primary units is used regardless of whether the IND560 is in Gross or Net
mode and regardless of the units that are displayed.
Minimum Weight
The minimum weight setting is the threshold below which log or print functions will
not initiate. Primary units are displayed for this field.
Interlock
Interlock prevents repeat logging and printing. If enabled, interlock requires that the
weight reading be reset per the Reset on parameter setting (see below) and then
settle to a weight greater than the minimum print value before responding to the
next log or print request.
Automatic
Enable the automatic setting to log data and send a print request every time the
weight on the scale settles to a positive value that is larger than the entered
threshold weight value.
If Automatic is set to Disable, the Threshold Weight field does not appear.
Reset on
The resetting of auto printing or logging can be based on weight threshold or
weight deviation values. Select Return (the weight must return to below this value
to reset) or Deviation (the weight must change more than this value to reset) from
the selection box and enter the weight value in the “Reset on” field.
If both Interlock and Automatic settings are disabled, the Reset on field does not
display.
If Reset On is set to Deviation, The Threshold Weight and Motion Check fields do
not display.
Threshold Weight
The Threshold Weight is the value above which an Automatic logging or printing of
data can/will occur. Threshold Weight does not appear if Automatic is set to
Disabled or if Reset On is set to Deviation.
Motion Check
Enable the motion check setting to prevent interlock and automatic log and print
functions from resetting when the scale is in motion below the “Reset On” return
point. Motion Check does not appear if Reset ON is set to Deviation.
MinWeigh
Enable the MinWeigh function to compare the current net weight with a MinWeigh
value. If the net weight is greater than or equal to the MinWeigh value, all terminal
functions behave normally. If the absolute value of the net weight is less than
MinWeigh, the weight display includes a flashing MinWeigh symbol to the left of
the weight. If the user attempts to record the weight while in this condition, the
printout will include an asterisk (∗).

Target Table
Target comparison can be used in two types of applications: material transfer and
over/under. Material transfer applications require that a control device deactivate when
a target value is achieved. Over/Under applications classify a load placed on the scale
platform as above or below the target value.
Values in the active record registers such as the target weight and tolerance, which
can be manually modified or loaded from the Target Table, are compared with either
the displayed or gross scale weight.
Use the Target Table setup screen to select the mode, tolerance type, and output type
for use in target comparison.
More detailed information about the target table can be found in Chapter 2.0,
Operation, and in Appendix C, Table and Log File Structure.

IND560 User’s Guide
Latching
If the Target Table mode selection is Material Transfer, output latching can be
selected. When output latching is enabled, the target comparison outputs remain
latched (OFF) after the output switching threshold is exceeded until the latch is
reset by a start input (softkey or discrete input).
If latching is disabled, the outputs will operate as coincidence-type outputs with no
interlocks.
Comparators
The Comparators screen permits the configuration of simple targets controlled
either by coincidence or by comparison with a range, and used as an assignment
for Discrete I/O outputs. Comparators are controlled either by coincidence or by
comparison with a target or range. The source for comparison can be the Gross
Weight, Displayed Weight, Rate or assigned by a custom TaskExpert application.
Home Screen Comparators Softkey
The Comparator softkey
can be assigned to the weight display home screen. It
opens the Comparators view screen, which displays the ID, Description, Limit,
Unit, High Limit and Active values for each Comparator. An EDIT softkey
opens
a screen that display’s the selected Comparator’s Description, and permits its Limit
and High Limit values to be modified. Changes can be saved ( ) or discarded
(
) when returning to the Comparators view screen.
Comparators Configuration Screen
Source, Active, Description and Limit values can only be set from the Application >
Operation > Comparators screen. This screen displays all five Comparators, and
contains columns for ID, Description, Source, Limit, Unit, High Limit, and Active
condition. From here, it is possible to EDIT
a Comparator, delete one
, or
clear
all Comparators.
Once parameters have been set in the Comparator Edit screen, they can be saved
by pressing OK
, or discarded by pressing ESCAPE
. In either case, the
view returns to the Comparators screen.
Source
The default value for Source is None, meaning that the comparator is disabled, and
no other parameter fields are displayed. Other choices for the Source are Displayed
Weight, Gross Weight, Rate and Application. If a weight field is selected as the
Source, the weight unit will be primary units. If Rate is selected as the Source, then
the unit will be the same as selected for Rate in the Scale > Rate branch. If
Application is selected, no other parameter fields are displayed. This selection
allows a TaskExpert custom application to control the source assignment for the
Comparators.
Active
The Active setting determines the range of other options available in the
Comparator Edit screen. These options are summarized in Table 3-2.
3-31
IND560 User’s Guide
When Active is set to less than (<, the default value), less than or equal to (<=),
equal to (=),greater than or equal to (>=), greater than (>), or not equal to (< >),
the output is active depending on the relationship between the current Source value
and the Limit. When Active is set to within (>_ _<) or outside (_< >_) a range, the
source value is compared to the target value range set in the Limit and High Limit
fields.

Description
The description is an alphanumeric string that is used to identify the type and
purpose of the comparator. This string appears, together with the automatically
assigned ID number (1-5), in the list that displays when the Comparator softkey is
pressed.
Limit
The Limit either sets the target weight value to which the actual source value is
compared, or the lower target value for the range to which the currently measured
source value is compared.
High Limit
The High Limit is available only for Range mode, and sets the upper target value
for the range to which the currently measured source value is compared. Its value
must be higher than the Limit – if a lower value is entered, the terminal will show
an Invalid Value message when the OK softkey
is pressed. The value is
expressed in the programmed Rate unit.
Totalization
Knowing how many weighing transactions were performed and how much
material was processed during a particular period of time is useful information for
many weighing applications.
The IND560 terminal provides both grand total (GT) and subtotal (ST) registers
and counters. Counters have a limit of 1,500,000 and registers will accumulate
up to 11 digits of weight including any decimal places to the right of the decimal
point. For example, a scale programmed for 500 x 0.1 kg will accumulate weight
values up to 9999999999.9 (11 total digits). If either of these limits is exceeded,
an error message will display and the totals must be reset before additional
weights or counts will be added.
Use the Totalization setup screen to select parameters for totalization operations,
including which source to use as input for totalization, settings for grand totals and
3-32
IND560 User’s Guide
subtotals, and to enable or disable the conversion of second or third unit weights
for totalization.
Mode
Select which source to use as input for totalization comparison – either Displayed
Weight or Gross Weight. A selection of None disables totalization.
Clear GT on Print
GT can be configured to clear automatically after printing the Totals report. If Clear
GT on Print is enabled, the subtotal also clears automatically after printing the
Totals report.
Subtotal
ST can be separately disabled while GT continues to accumulate weights. Choose
to either enable or disable the subtotal register.
Clear ST on Print
Clearing the subtotal on print and not clearing the grand total on print allows the
subtotal register to totalize sub-sets of weighments and to be reset while the grand
total continues to track the grand total of weight. Choose to Clear ST on Print or not
by selecting enabled or disabled in the selection box.
Convert Weight
The total registers always store weights in primary units. If Convert Weight is
disabled, scale weights other than primary units are not accumulated. If Convert
Weight is enabled, then the weight is converted to primary units, then
accumulated.
ID
The ID function is a simple but powerful means of facilitating specific data input
from the operator or causing a specific action to take place. The prompt list may
include up to 20 steps, each step containing a command that determines the
action the IND560 terminal will take when the step is executed.
The sequence can be programmed to run once (for example, when initiated by the
) or to loop continuously until terminated. It can also be
pressing the ID softkey
initiated and restarted automatically, triggered by weight input from the scale. In
either case, the operator works though a prompted series of actions or data entries.
For example, the operator could place a package on the scale, be prompted to enter
his or her name, enter a pre-set tare value, scan a bar code on the package, and
generate an automatic print before finally removing the package from the scale. The
printed data could include the net weight value, together with the scanned package
information and the operator’s name. The content and format of the printed
information is determined by the template assigned to the demand output.
ID Mode – None
If None is selected as the ID Mode, then the ID function is disabled.
3-33
IND560 User’s Guide
ID Mode – Automatic
Automatic Mode triggers the ID sequence when a weight above the Threshold
weight value is placed on the scale and a no-motion state is detected. The
sequence trigger rearms again after the weight falls below the Reset weight value.

in the softkey setup. The default setting for the placement of these softkeys is in
positions 9 and 10.
The INFORMATION RECALL and SETUP softkeys must always be assigned a
position. They can be moved or multiple copies of them can exist but there must
always be at least one appearance of them. They cannot be deleted. All other
softkeys may be added or deleted as desired.
Adding a softkey to the home pages of the terminal does not automatically enable
the softkey’s function. Most softkeys must also be enabled in setup too. For

Templates
The IND560 terminal utilizes five output templates (1,000 bytes in size) to define
the format of data output following a weighing operation.
An input template is also available to receive a string input (such as from a bar
code gun) and use it as data entry for ID 1, Tare, Tare ID or Target ID. When the
Fill-560 Application Software is installed, the input template can also be assigned
for Target Weigh-In or Target Weigh-out.
A template strings setup screen is also available to configure strings of characters
that are frequently used in templates.
Input
Use the Input Template to remove extra characters from an input string of data.
Setup parameters include:
Preamble Length – Defines how many characters are skipped at the beginning of
an input string before the desired data.
Data Length – Defines the maximum length of a string. All characters beginning
after the preamble through the data length selection are used as the input.
Postamble Length – Defines the number of characters (before but not including the
termination character) that will be stripped off the data string. All other data from
the preamble length to the termination character minus the postamble length are
used as the input string. When using an input that is always the same fixed length,
this field remains blank.

Repeat Count
A numeric value that sets the number of times the Data will repeat. For example, if
the string data entered is an asterisk (*), a repeat count value of 20 would
produce a row of 20 asterisks: ********************.
Format & Length
The Format & Length options are Default, Centered, Left, and Right. These describe
the justification of the data within the length of the field.
The Default value is fixed, and Length cannot be defined here.
For SD name and String data, the Centered, Left and Right formats are
accompanied by a Length field. After choosing the format, focus moves to the
Length entry box. This value determines how long the element will be – the data
will be positioned within a string of the length entered. Refer to the Notes on Format

Leading Zero Fill
In the case of Right-formatted SDName data, Leading Zero fill may be enabled or
disabled. Normally, Leading Zero Fill will be disabled, which means spaces will be
used to fill in leading non-significant data. If enabled, Leading Zero Fill will fill in
any leading spaces of the data with zeroes. The following examples of 4
characters in output data defined as 8 characters long show the use of Leading
Zero Fill:

Notes on Format & Length
If data for an element includes more characters than the value entered for Length,
the output data will be cut off. For example, if the number of characters entered
under format on the Output Template Edit Screen is six, and data for a string that
contains eight characters is entered, only six of the characters from the data string
will print. If data for a string that contains four characters is entered, all of the
characters from the data string will print.
The characters and alignment of the printed data are defined by the selected
format:
Example 8-character string of ABCDEFGH in a 6-character element:
Center:
Left:
Right:
B
C
D
E
F
G
Prints the middle six characters
from an eight-character string –

Prints all four characters from a
four-character string in a rightjustified position, leaving two
spaces at the beginning.
In Table 3-4, where dashes appear in the SDName (e.g. sd--08), this means that
there are more than one instance of the share data variable. The instance number
appears in place of the dashes (e.g. sd0308, for the third comparator’s target
comparison operator). For a full list of Shared Data fields, please refer to the

Message Slots
This parameter refers to the number of slots of data that will be transferred.
Typically only one slot is used in a single scale application, but sometimes an
application requires multiple fields of data in a cyclic data transfer. In order to
accomplish this, two, three, or even four message slots can be assigned for the
output. As the number of message slots is increased, so is the length of the
message, because each slot requires enough memory to transmit a complete set
of data. More detailed information can be found in the IND560 Terminal PLC
Interface Manual, which is included on the documentation CD.

The IND560 terminal is designed to provide years of dependable
operation. However, METTLER TOLEDO recommends that – as with any
industrial measurement equipment – the IND560 terminal and the
connected scale system be serviced periodically. Timely, factoryspecified maintenance and calibration by a METTLER TOLEDO service
technician will ensure and document accurate and dependable
performance to specifications.
Cleaning and Maintenance
Clean the IND560 terminal’s keypad and cover with a clean, soft cloth
that has been dampened with a mild glass cleaner. Do not use any
type of industrial solvent such as toluene or isopropanol (IPA) that could damage
the terminal’s finish. Do not spray cleaner directly on the terminal.
Regular maintenance inspections and calibration by a qualified service technician
are recommended. The IND560 is a rugged stainless steel enclosed instrument;
however, the font panel is a vinyl covering over sensitive electronic switches and a
lighted display. Care should be taken to avoid any punctures to this surface or any
vibrations or shocks to the instrument. Should the front panel become punctured,
ensure that steps are taken to prevent dust and moisture from entering the unit until
the terminal can be repaired.
Service
Only qualified personnel should perform installation, programming, and service.
Please contact a local METTLER TOLEDO representative for assistance.
In general, once the IND560 is installed, programmed, and calibrated for a given
application, only routine calibration service is required.
WARNING
ONLY PERMIT QUALIFIED PERSONNEL TO SERVICE THE
TERMINAL. EXERCISE CARE WHEN MAKING CHECKS, TESTS AND
ADJUSTMENTS THAT MUST BE MADE WITH POWER ON. FAILING
TO OBSERVE THESE PRECAUTIONS CAN RESULT IN BODILY HARM
AND/OR PROPERTY DAMAGE.

Upgrading Firmware
Upgrading from Version 1.xx Firmware to
Version 2.xx, 3.xx or 4.xx
The upgrade from version 1.xx to v2.xx, v3.xx or v4.xx of the IND560 firmware
requires the installation of new bootcode in addition to the firmware. The new
bootcode should be flashed before the new firmware.
Upgrading from v2.xx firmware to v3.xx or v4.xx firmware or upgrading from v3.xx
to v4.xx does not require a new bootcode. v2.xx, v3.xx and v4.xx share the same
bootcode (IND560BootV2.00.dat).
There are two ways to install an upgraded version of the IND560 firmware. The
preferred method uses the PC-based InSite™ configuration tool , but it is also
possible ot do so without a computer, using a USB flash memory drive connected
to the options USB port
Performing an Upgrade with InSite
The InSite program is used to flash new terminal firmware through the COM1 serial
port or the optional Ethernet port. The firmware update and the InSite configuration
tool program must be saved on a PC that will be connected to the terminal for
firmware flashing.
Implement the following steps to prepare the terminal for firmware flashing using
the InSite configuration tool:
Access the InSite tool by double-clicking on its icon –
.
The new firmware might generate a checksum error on restart, which can be
cleared by pressing ENTER on the terminal’s keypad. This performs a Master
Reset. Therefore, it is important to use InSite™ to back up the current
configuration and table data before performing the upgrade.
1. Remove power from the terminal.
4-2
IND560 User’s Guide
2. Open the terminal enclosure as specified in Appendix A, Installation, Opening
the Enclosure.
3. Set the SW1-1 switch to OFF (if not already in the OFF position) and the
SW1-2 switch to ON. (See Appendix A, Installation for switch locations.)
Setting SW2-1 to ON will correctly prepare COM1 for connection to InSite by
temporarily bypassing all existing COM1 setup parameters and connections.
4. Apply power to the terminal. The first firmware download screen displays, with
the message Update Code, Mode Select.
5. If Ethernet will be used for connection, press and hold the ENTER key for five
seconds as soon as the first download screen displays. The Ethernet
download screen displays.
6. Using the navigation keys and the numeric keypad, change the IP address
and/or the subnet mask settings if required. (These settings will be saved in
the Ethernet setup on the terminal when the download is complete.)
7. After stepping through the last subnet mask values, the bottom of the IND560
screen will display “Please download file”. The terminal is now ready to have
the InSite program flash the new firmware.
8. If the COM1 serial port will be used for connection, do not press ENTER when
the initial download screen is shown. After a few seconds, the Serial port
download screen displays, which will list parameters for the serial port
download (these parameters cannot be changed). The serial port on the PC
must be programmed to match these parameters. This is done automatically
in the InSite program. Parameters listed include:
Baud Rate:
115200
Data Bits:
8
Parity Bit:
None
Stop Bits:
1
Flow Control: None
9. Connect the Ethernet or serial port cable from the PC that contains the firmware
update and the InSite configuration tool program to the IND560 terminal. (See
Appendix A, Installation for connection locations.) The terminal is now ready
for firmware flashing.
10. Refer to the instructions/help provided with the InSite configuration tool
program for procedures required to complete firmware flashing.
11. When the firmware download process is complete, disconnect the serial or
Ethernet cable, return switch SW1-1 to its original position (if it was changed)
and turn the SW1-2 switch to OFF.
12. Close the terminal enclosure.
To eliminate potential memory errors, it is recommended that a Master Reset be
performed after flashing new firmware. This procedure is described later in this
chapter.

AC Power Test
If the display is blank or if intermittent problems are occurring, the condition of the
AC power source should be checked. Use a multi-meter to check the AC input
power. Input power must be within −15% to +10% of the standard 100–240
voltage range.
Begin by checking the AC power at the source. If no AC power is present, have a
qualified electrician at the site restore power at the source. After power is restored,
test the IND560 for correct operation.
If there is AC voltage present at the source, check for the same voltage between pin
1 (brown wire) and pin 2 (blue wire) on the Power Supply harness to the Main
PCB as shown in Figure 4-4.
Pin 1 (brown)
Pin 2 (blue)
Pin 4 (black)
Pin 5 (red)
Pin 6 (white)
Figure 4-4: Pin Locations on the Power Supply Harness
If no AC voltage is present, the fuse on the Main PCB has probably been blown.
This fuse is designed to protect the source wiring in case of an internal power
supply short. If the fuse is blown, the IND560 power supply is probably defective.
To check this, replace the fuse and see if it blows again. If it does, replace the
IND560 power supply.
If AC power is present on the blue and brown wires, the power supply should be
checked next.
Power Supply Voltage Test
The power supply provides 5 VDC to both the Main PCB and the Display PCB, and
12 VDC to the Main PCB. Verify the 12 VDC voltage is between 11 and 19 volts
when measured from Pin 6 (+V) to Pin 4 (Ground). Verify the 5 VDC voltage is
between 4.9 and 5.1 volts when measured from Pin 5 (+V) to Pin 4 (Ground). If
either of the voltages is absent or outside the specified range, replace the Power
Supply PCB. See Figure 4-4, above, for the locations of Pins 4, 5, and 6 on the
Power Supply harness.
4-9
IND560 User’s Guide
Load Cell and IDNet Power
The power to operate an IDNet base and the excitation voltage for analog load cells
are both developed from the 12 VDC supply. This supply has short-circuit
protection built into the power supply board. If the IDNet base or analog load cell
circuit draws too much current (for example, when shorted to ground), the 12 VDC
supply will shut itself off. After the protection circuit is triggered, the terminal must
be powered down for at least 30 seconds before reapplying power. After this time,
the short-circuit protection circuit will reset and the 12 VDC supply will be available
again.
If the 12 VDC supply measures 0 VDC during the voltage check, power the terminal
down, disconnect the IDNet base or analog load cell(s), wait 30 seconds, then
reapply power. If the 12 VDC supply is now OK, check the IDNet base or analog
load cell(s) for defects.
Battery Test
If setup parameters change uncontrollably or programming is lost, check the BRAM
battery voltage. Battery voltage is tested at the battery assembly on the Main PCB.
The battery and power connector are shown in Figure 4-5.
Battery
(+)
Pin 4
(grd.)
Figure 4-5: Battery Test
Use a Volt-Ohm meter to measure voltage between the top of the battery (+) and
pin 4 (ground) of the power supply connector with the AC power disconnected.
This measurement should be approximately 3.0 VDC. Replace the Main PCB if the
measured voltage is below 2.5 VDC.
Internal Diagnostic Testing
The IND560 provides several internal diagnostic tests that are accessible in setup
mode. Press the SETUP softkey
to view the setup menu tree. Use the DOWN
navigation key to scroll down the menu tree to Maintenance. Press the RIGHT
navigation key to expand the menu tree selections for Maintenance. Scroll down
and expand Run. Scroll down and expand Diagnostics. Available diagnostic setup
screens include:
•
4-10
Display Test—Displays an alternate off/on dot block pattern when accessed.
After the alternate off/on cycle, the display will return to the menu tree.
IND560 User’s Guide
•
Keyboard Test—Enables testing of the keyboard. Each key that is pressed will
be shown on the display. When testing is complete, press the EXIT softkey
to return to the menu tree.
•
Scale
• Load Cell Output—Displays the current load cell output (active weight) for
the scale. This is useful to determine exactly how many counts the analog
section is outputting and is not available with IDNet bases.
• Calibration Values—Displays the current calibration values for the scale. If
these values are recorded after a scale calibration, and the Main PCB is
replaced in the future, the calibration values can be manually entered here
to “transfer” the previous calibration to the new Main PCB. This is not
available with IDNet bases.
• Statistics—Displays statistical information for the scale such as the total
number of weighments, the number of scale overloads, the peak weight
weighed on the scale, total number of zero commands and failed zero
commands. These are very helpful when diagnosing scale problems.
•
Serial Test—Enables testing of the transmit and receive functions on the serial
(COM) ports. Select the COM port to be tested using the selection box for Com
Port. Only those ports installed are available for testing.
• Press the START softkey
and a data string is output repeatedly
approximately once every three seconds. The data is: [Testing COMx: nn]
where “x” is the COM port and “nn” is an incrementing value beginning at
00 and continuing to 99. Each transmission increments this number by
one.
• If a jumper wire is placed between the transmit and the receive terminals
(Figure 4-6) on the port being tested, the same data string that is
transmitted displays as the receiving field.
Figure 4-6: Jumper Wire Between Transmit and Receive Terminals
• If another device is connected to the receiving port, any ASCII data received
displays in the receiving field.
• To stop the serial port test, press the STOP softkey
•
.
Discrete I/O Test—Provides a view of the status of the discrete inputs and
allows enabling or disabling of the discrete outputs for diagnostic purposes.
Expand the Discrete I/O branch by pressing the RIGHT navigation key. Choose
4-11
IND560 User’s Guide
if the test will be performed on the local (internal) discrete I/O option or one of
the remote ARM100 modules. Press ENTER when that branch is highlighted.
There will be a warning shown next to remind the tester that the outputs can be
turned on manually during this test so any control power to the discrete
outputs should be removed.
WARNING
THE DISCRETE OUTPUTS OF THE IND560 TERMINAL WILL BE
MANUALLY ENABLED DURING THIS TEST. REMOVE OUTPUT
CONTROL POWER SO EXTERNAL EQUIPMENT WILL NOT BE
ENERGIZED BY MISTAKE. EXERCISE CARE WHEN MAKING
CHECKS, TESTS AND ADJUSTMENTS THAT MUST BE MADE WITH
POWER ON. FAILING TO OBSERVE THESE PRECAUTIONS CAN
RESULT IN BODILY HARM AND/OR PROPERTY DAMAGE.
When viewing the test screen, the input status will be shown at the top of the
display and the output status will be shown at the bottom of the display Figure
4-7). Focus is shown on Output #1 first.
Figure 4-7: Discrete I/O Test Screen
Focus can be moved to any of the other outputs by using the RIGHT and LEFT
navigation keys. The two softkeys at the bottom of the page will either enable
or disable
the highlighted output.
Note that when the Discrete I/O Test screen is exited, all outputs will be turned
off again.
•
Network Test—Enables testing of the Ethernet programming/hardware/firmware
in the terminal. The following tests are run during this diagnostic process:
• TCP/IP Stack
• This IP Address
• Gateway address
Each step will indicate “Testing” during the test then indicate a Pass or Timeout
status. If the status is shown as Timeout, it indicates that the IP address or
gateway address has not been programmed in the terminal (see Chapter 3.0,
Configuration, Communication, Network for information on entering the IP and
gateway addresses.

RS-232 Serial Output Voltage Test
If tests of the sending and receiving functions on the serial (COM) ports test fails,
use the following procedure to determine whether the RS-232 serial port is
operational:
1. Remove power from the IND560 terminal and the printer.
2. Disconnect the data cable from the printer.
3. Set the voltmeter to read 20 VDC.
4. Connect the red lead to the transmit terminal of the COM port and connect the
black lead to the ground terminal of the COM port.
5. Apply power to the IND560. The meter should read as follows:
• Demand mode—The meter should read a stable value (without fluctuation)
between −5 and −15 VDC.
• Continuous mode—The meter should fluctuate continuously within the
range −10 to +10 VDC. The actual values and degree of fluctuation
observed will depend on the type and sensitivity of the meter used. The
constant fluctuation on the meter display indicates that the scale/terminal
is transmitting information.
. The display should fluctuate
To test Demand baud rates, press the PRINT key
as for continuous mode for the duration of the transmission, then become stable
again. This fluctuation indicates the terminal has transmitted data.
When measuring higher baud rates in Demand mode, the meter display will
fluctuate less, and for a shorter period of time.
Master Reset
A hardware master reset is provided that sets all IND560 terminal settings to the
factory default settings (refer to Appendix B, Default Settings).
The master reset typically is performed under these circumstances:
• When a software configuration problem arises that cannot be resolved without
starting from the factory default settings.
• When security is enabled to protect setup, and the password is lost.
• After a firmware upgrade is performed.
• After a hardware key is installed or removed.
To initiate a master reset, perform the following steps:
1. Remove AC power.
2. Note the position of switches SW1-1 and SW1-2.
4-13
IND560 User’s Guide
3. Place both switches SW1-1 and SW1-2 in the ON position, as shown in
Figure 4-8.
SW1
Figure 4-8: Switches SW1-1 and SW1-2
The position of SW2-1 (indicated in Figure 4-9) determines whether
metrologically significant EEPROM (scale, calibration) data is reset when a
master reset is performed. SW2-1 must be set to ON to reset EEPROM data. If
SW2-1 is set to OFF, EEPROM data will not be affected by the master reset.
Figure 4-9: Location of Switch SW2-1
4. Apply AC power. A warning message displays asking if all values should be
reset to factory defaults.
5. Press ENTER to perform a master reset. When the reset is complete, a
confirmation message displays.
6. Remove AC power.
7. Return SW1-1 and SW1-2 (and, if they were changed, SW2-1 and SW2-2) to
their original positions, noted in step 2.
8. Reapply AC power.
OR
If a master reset is not desired:
1. Do not press ENTER.
2. Remove AC power.
3. Reset switches SW1-1 and SW1-2 (and, if they were changed, SW2-1 and
SW2-2) to their original positions.
4. Reapply AC power.

Terminal Updates
One standard and two optional serial ports are supported with the
IND560 terminal. They are designated COM1 (standard port on the
Main PCB), COM2 (optional), and COM3 (optional).
COM1 provides RS-232, RS-422, and RS-485 interfaces. The RS232 interface is a three-wire (TDX, RXD, and GND) with XON/XOFF
flow-control capabilities (handshaking). This port can also be used
for loading new IND560 firmware and to access the shared data
server. The RS-422 interface is a four-wire interface designed for
single point-to-point communication. The RS-485 connection is a
two-wire interface but does not provide multi-drop communication
with addressing. All interfaces can be output simultaneously;
however, only one input can be used.
Optional COM2 provides only RS-232. This interface is a three-wire
connection with XON/XOFF handshaking capabilities.
Optional COM3 on the Ethernet/COM2/COM3 board provides RS232, RS-422, and RS-485 interfaces. The RS-232 interface is a three-wire (TDX,
RXD, and GND) with XON/XOFF flow-control capabilities (handshaking). The RS422 interface is a four-wire interface designed for single point-to-point
communication. The RS-485 connection is a two-wire interface but does not
provide multi-drop communication with addressing. All interfaces can be output
simultaneously; however, only one input can be used.
Optional COM3 on the Ethernet/USB/COM3 board provides RS-232 and RS-485.
RS-422 is not available on COM3 of the Ethernet/USB/COM3 board.
Character framing is programmable in the setup mode. Framing can be:
•
•
•
•
1 start bit
7 or 8 ASCII data bits (selectable)
0 or 1 parity bit (none, even, or odd)
1 stop bit
The baud rate can be configured from 300 to 115.2K baud and a checksum
character can also be configured for the standard continuous output string.
The IND560 terminal uses software handshaking to control data flow commonly
referred to as XON/XOFF handshaking. When a receiving device (typically a printer)
B-1
IND560 User’s Guide
is getting information from an IND560 terminal and cannot receive any more in its
buffer, it sends an ASCII XOFF (13h) telling the IND560 terminal to temporarily
stop sending data until its buffer clears.
When the device can receive more data, it sends an ASCII XON (11h) telling the
IND560 terminal to begin sending data again. This process can occur as often as
required by a receiving device.
The XON/XOFF method is the only type of handshaking that is supported by the
IND560 terminal.
The IND560 terminal supports two different modes of data output – demand and
continuous.
Demand Output Mode
The demand output mode transmits data only when the IND560 terminal receives
a print request. Print requests are sent to the IND560 terminal when:
•
The operator presses PRINT
•
A discrete input selected as print is triggered
•
An ASCII “P” is sent through a command input port
•
Auto print is enabled and all conditions for auto print are met
•
A PLC command to print is received
•
The “Print” command shared data is triggered
When triggered, data is transmitted in a string programmed in the template editing
portion of setup. Demand mode is used typically when sending data to a printer or
PC on a transactional basis.
Custom Triggers
There are three programmable custom triggers in the Connections section of setup
that can be used to “trigger” a specific demand output. This could be used to
provide a separate “Print” key (using a discrete input) that sends a specific
template to a particular serial port, Ethernet port or the Eprint port. Using the
custom triggers enables printing of different information to the same port or a
different port based on which custom trigger is initiated. These custom triggers can
provide great flexibility in configuring demand outputs.
A connection using a custom trigger is configured like a standard demand output
except that Trigger 1, Trigger 2, or Trigger 3 is selected as the trigger instead of
Scale. After making the connection, a custom trigger can be assigned to one of the
discrete inputs to initiate the demand output. A custom trigger can also be initiated
directly by a PLC command (refer to the IND560 Terminal PLC Interface Manual);
by toggling one of the cp0101, cp0102, or cp0103 shared data variables (refer to
the IND560 Shared Data Reference); or by assigning the trigger to one of the
trigger softkeys (refer to the Connections section of Chapter 3, Configuration).
B-2
IND560 User’s Guide
Output Templates
The IND560 provides five templates to define a custom string of data to be
transmitted. A template can be used with a demand mode connection, a custom
trigger connection or with a continuous template connection. In the setup of the
terminal, a template is tied to an output connection so that when that connection is
triggered, the selected template will be transmitted. The three default templates in
the terminal from the factory are as follows:
Template 1
XX.XX kg
XX.XX kg T
XX.XX kg N
Template 5

Grand Total:

Template 2
Scale ID

Current Date
XX.XX kg
XX.XX kg T
XX.XX kg N
Current Date
XXX.XX kg
XXXX.XX kg
Each template can store up to 1,000 bytes of data. Table B-1 defines how the
1,000 bytes are calculated. There is no warning if a template overflows this limit
until the template is saved. At this time, any information over the 1,000-byte limit
will be lost. The InSite program’s Template Editor feature does track the size of the
template as it is being built and provides an appropriate warning if the limit is
exceeded.

Continuous Output Mode
The continuous output mode of the IND560 can be used to continuously send
weight data and scale status information to a remote device such as a PC or a
remote display.
Standard Continuous Output
Continuous Output can be assigned to COM1, COM2, COM3, Ethernet 1 or Eprint.
Standard Continuous Output over Ethernet is addressed later in this Appendix.
Checksum can be enabled or disabled on any of these ports with continuous
output. A data string will be output approximately 20 times per second for baud
rates above 4800 baud. If a baud rate below 4800 is selected, the output rate will
be slower. At 300 baud, the output rate is only approximately 2 per second. The
format is fixed, except for baud rate, parity, data flow (XON/XOFF), and interface
type. The data consists of 17 or 18 bytes as shown in Table B-3.
Non-significant weight data and tare data digits are transmitted as spaces. The
continuous output mode provides compatibility with METTLER TOLEDO products
that require real-time weight data. Table B-3 shows continuous format output.

Continuous Template Output
If continuous template is selected as the assignment for a connection, a custom
string of data can be configured using one of the five available templates. When a
continuous template output is selected, the output rate will depend on the size of
the template and the baud rate selected. The rate will vary from approximately once
per second up to approximately 20 times per second. Refer to Table B-7 for
estimated output rates of a 160 byte template.

IND560 User’s Guide
The template can include any combination of elements (IND560 Field Codes, ASCII
characters, or print strings). Note that the output rate may be adversely affected by
transmitting a large template or selecting a slow baud rate.
The template is configured as explained in Chapter 3.0, Configuration, and this
template has the same size restrictions as described above in the Demand Output
Mode, Output Templates section.
CTPZ
The CTPZ input mode provides a method for a remote serial device to trigger
several basic functions when a control character is sent to the IND560. Remote
ASCII control characters and the IND560 terminal responses include:
•
C – Clears the scale to gross
•
T – Tares the scale (causes a pushbutton tare)
•
P – Initiates a print command
•
Z – Zeros the scale
All other characters are ignored.
ASCII control characters can be sent in upper- or lower-case.
Example
To initiate a pushbutton tare, program the terminal for CTPZ input for a specific
port, program the serial port parameters to match the other device and then send
the ASCII character “T”.
Standard Interface Command Set (SICS)
Protocol
The IND560 terminal supports the METTLER TOLEDO Standard Interface Command
Set (MT-SICS), which is divided into four levels (0, 1, 2, 3), depending on the
functionality of the device. The IND560 terminal supports parts of levels 0 and 1:
•
MT-SICS level 0 – Command set for the simplest device.
•
MT-SICS level 1 – Extension of the command set for standard devices.
A feature of this concept is that the commands combined in MT-SICS level 0 and 1
are identical for all devices. Both the simplest weighing device and a fully
expanded weighing workstation recognize the commands of MT-SICS levels 0
and 1.
B-8
IND560 User’s Guide
Data Interface Configuration
Setting of the interface such as baud rate, number of data bits, parity, handshake
protocols and connector pin assignments are described in Chapter 3.0,
Configuration.
Version Number of the MT-SICS
Each level of the MT-SICS has its own version number, which can be requested
with the command I1 from level 0. The IND560 supports:
•
MT-SICS level 0, version 2.2x (except the ZI command)
•
MT-SICS level 1, version 2.2x (except the D, DW and K commands)
Command Formats
Each command received by the scale via the data interface is acknowledged by a
response of the device to the transmitter. Commands and responses are data
strings with a fixed format. Commands sent to the IND560 terminal comprise one
or more characters of the ASCII character set. Enter commands only in uppercase.
The parameters of the command must be separated from one another and from the
command name by a space (ASCII 32 dec., in the examples shown in this
section, a space is represented as _ ).
Each command must be terminated by CR LF (ASCII 13 dec., 10 dec.)
The characters CR and LF, which can be inputted using the ENTER or RETURN key
of most entry keypads, are not listed in this description. However, it is essential
they be included for communication with the IND560 terminal.
Example
Command to tare the IND560 terminal:
“TA_20.00_lb” (The command terminator CR LF is not shown.)
Response Formats
All responses sent by the IND560 terminal to the transmitter to acknowledge the
received commands have one of the following formats:
Response with weight value
Response without weight value
Error message
Format of the Response with Weight Value
A general description of the response with weight value as follows:
B-9
IND560 User’s Guide
ID – Response identification.
__ – Space (ASCII 32 dec.)
Status – Status of the IND560 terminal. See description of the commands and
responses.
Weight Value – Weighing result, which is shown as a number with 10 digits,
including sign directly in front of the first digit. The weight value appears right
justified. Preceding zeroes are suppressed with the exception of the zero to the left
of the decimal point.
Unit – Weight unit displayed.
CR – Carriage Return (ASCII 13 dec.)
LF – Line Feed (ASCII 10 dec.)
Comment – CR LF will not be shown in this description.
Example

LF
IND560 User’s Guide
ID – Error Identification
There are three different error messages. The identification always comprises two
characters:
ES – Syntax error
The IND560 terminal has not recognized the received command.
ET – Transmission error
The scale has received a “faulty” command, such as a parity error.
EL – Logical error
The IND560 terminal cannot execute the received command.
CR – Carriage return (ASCII 13 dec.)
LF – Line Feed (ASCII 10 dec.)
Comment – CR LF will not be shown in this description.
Tips for the Programmer
Tips for programming the IND560 terminal SICS protocol include:
Command and Response
Improve the dependability of application software by having the program evaluate
the response of the IND560 terminal to a command. The response is the
acknowledgment that the IND560 terminal has received the command.
Reset
When establishing communication between the IND560 terminal and system, send
a reset command to the IND560 terminal to enable a start from a determined state.
When the IND560 terminal or system is switched on or off, faulty characters can
be received or sent.
Quotation Marks (“ ”)
Quotation marks included in the command responses are used to designate fields
and will always be sent.
Commands and Responses MT-SICS Level
0
The IND560 terminal receives a command from the system computer and
acknowledges the command with an appropriate response. The following sections
contain a detailed description of the command set in alphabetical order with the
associated responses. Commands and responses are closed with CR and LF.
These termination characters are not shown in the following description, but they
must always be entered with commands or sent with responses.

Even during a non-stable (dynamic) condition, a tare weight value can be
determined. However, the tare value determined in this manner may not be
accurate.
The stored tare weight value is sent in the current units.
Remote Discrete I/O (ARM100)
The IND560 provides the ability to expand the discrete input and output control to
remote ARM100 devices. This ability is required when more than four inputs or six
outputs are used (these are limits of the internal discrete I/O option) or it may be
beneficial to have all of the I/O external to the IND560 based on the application. A
total of three sets of I/O are supported in the IND560. This could be configured as
the internal discrete I/O option and two remotes or all three sets of I/O could be
ARM100 remote I/O modules.
The communication link from the IND560 terminal to the ARM100 remote discrete
I/O module is an RTU-based RS-485 communication protocol. During power-up, if
remote discrete I/O has been enabled, communication will be established between
the IND560 terminal and the remote modules. Any communication errors will be
shown on the system line of the IND560.
If the RS-485 link between the ARM100(s) and the IND560 is interrupted or
disabled, the IND560 disables all active I/O as a precaution.
Since the communication link is RS-485, only COM1 and the optional COM3 may
be programmed for use with the ARM100 (COM2 is RS-232 only). This
communication uses both the input and output portions of the port so it cannot be
shared with any other connections. When “Remote Discrete I/O” is selected as the
assignment for COM1 or COM3, the communication parameters are automatically
preset by the terminal and cannot be changed from the front panel - they can only
be viewed. The parameters are:
•
Baud Rate: 57600
•
Data bits: 8
•
Parity: None
•
Flow Control: None
•
Interface: RS-485
After wiring the ARM100 modules per the details in the IND560 Installation
Manual, and programming the assignment in the connections portion of setup, the
remote modules should be operational. When assigning functions to remote
discrete I/O locations, the remote modules are addressed by 1.0.x for module #1,
2.0.x for module #2, and 3.0.x for module #3. Each module provides four inputs
and six dry-contact relay outputs.
Example
Tare assigned to discrete I/O input address 1.0.1.
B-20
IND560 User’s Guide
This indicates that when input #1 is turned on in remote module #1, a tare will be
taken.
ASCII Input
With the IND560 terminal, a bar code scanner or other ASCII device can be
connected to a port and used as an input device to enter ASCII data. This is done
with the ASCII Input connection type. When this input type is selected, the
assignment for the data received must also be specified at Communication >
Templates > Input. Available assignments include:
•
ID1
•
Keypad
•
Tare
•
Tare ID
•
Target ID
•
Target Weigh-in (Fill-560 feature only)
•
Target Weigh-out (Fill-560 feature only)
As part of the programming for using the ASCII input, an input template must be
configured. The template feature permits removal of a preamble (preceeding
characters) and a postamble (trailing characters) that are not part of the desired
data. Using these parameters in the setup of the input template, the number of
characters to be ignored before and after the data are programmed. These must be
the same for each data input string that the IND560 receives.
An input will be terminated after the receipt of the programmable “Termination
Character” or a 1 second timeout of no new characters received. At this time, any
input data that has been collected will be applied to the assignment that has been
selected. This could be an actual value such as a preset tare value or a response
for IDs, or it could initiate a look-up into the tare or target table by selecting Tare ID
or Target ID.
The following notes apply to how the ASCII input is handled through the input
template:
The Preamble Length selects how many characters should be skipped at the
beginning of an input string before the desired data.
Data Length defines the maximum length of a string. All characters beginning
after the Preamble through the Length selection will be used as the input.
The Postamble length is the number of characters (before the Termination
Character) that will be stripped off the data string. All other data from the
Preamble Length to the Termination Character minus the Postamble Length will
be used as the input string. When using an input that is always the same fixed
length, this field would remain blank.
B-21
IND560 User’s Guide
The Termination Character is used to signal the end of the string input. It can
be any ASCII control character. If “None” is selected, the timeout feature will
terminate the entry.
There is also a 1 second timeout feature that tracks the amount of time
between characters. If this 1 second time is exceeded, the string will also be
considered terminated.
Example
Preamble of 2, Data length of 5, Postamble of 0, Termination Character of <CR>,
Input assignment of Tare.
Data received is: <STX>P001.5 kg<CR>
The preamble of 2 removes the <STX> and P characters. The next 5 characters of
001.5 are the actual data. The postamble is set to 0 because the data field has
already been filled so no characters have to be removed. The <CR> terminates the
input.
This string would input 1.5 as a preset tare to the IND560.
This same data could be obtained by programming a Preamble of 2, Data length
of 8, Postamble of 3, Termination Character of <CR>. The Postamble length of 3
would remove the <space>kg from the data field since they are the last 3
characters received in front of the <CR>.
Reports
In order to print reports of the tare table, target table, or message strings, a
connection must be made for the “Reports” function. When a reports connection is
made to a serial port, whenever a report is run and then printed, it will be routed to
the assigned port.
The structure of the printed report is selectable in setup so that all reports have the
same general format. Printable fields for the tare table and target table individual
reports are also selected in the Reports sub-block of Communications.
A sample of each report in a 40 column wide and an 80 column wide print are
shown in the following sections.
Alibi Table
The alibi table can be viewed or printed. Alibi memory is viewed in the same way
as a search and view of any other table in the terminal. It is accessible from the
dedicated ALIBI softkey
, the REPORTS softkey
, or through the menu tree
at Application > Memory > Alibi.

Shared Data Access
All setup parameters, triggers and statuses in the IND560 are stored and routed
through “Shared Data”. This is a system of memory mapping that permits remote
clients to send commands and receive data from the terminal. In order to access
the shared data variables in the IND560, a remote client must login to the Shared
Data Server. Access is provided through either the COM1 serial port or through the
optional Ethernet port. Regardless of the method used, the same access is
provided and the login procedure is very similar.
Shared Data Server Login
Shared data access is available from the COM1 serial port and the optional
Ethernet port.
To login to the Shared Data Server via COM1:
1. To enable communication with the Shared Data Server:
Delete all connections to the COM1 port of the IND560. In setup at
Communication > Serial, ensure that port settings for COM1 are:
•
•
•
•
115.2 K baud
8 data bits
No parity
1 stop bit
or
Move switch SW2-1 to its ON position. This permits communication with
the Shared Data Server without deleting any connections that have been
configured in setup. Setting SW2-1 to ON will cause the message “Test
Mode” to appear in the system line until SW2-1 is turned OFF.
To restore access to configured COM1 connections, remember to return
SW2-1 to its original, OFF, position once Shared Data Server
communication is ended.
or
At Communication > Connections, set the assignment of COM1 as “Shared
Data Server”. This setting allows communication with the Shared Data
Server over COM1 without setting SW 2-1 to the ON position. At
Communication > Serial, ensure that port settings for COM1 are:
•
•
•
115.2 K baud
8 data bits
No parity
B-25
IND560 User’s Guide
• 1 stop bit
2. Program the serial port of the remote device for:
• 115.2 K baud
• 8 data bits
• No parity
• 1 stop bit
3. Connect an RS-232 cable (or RS-422 or RS-485) between the remote client
PC and the IND560 COM1 port.
4. Open a program to communicate with the IND560 (such as HyperTerminal).
5. Type: user xxxxx where xxxxx is a valid username programmed in the
Terminal > User branch of the setup menu tree. The access level assigned to
this username will determine which shared data variables will be available.
6. If a password is required for the username entered in step 5, the terminal will
display: 51 Enter password. If no password is required, skip to step 8.
7. Type: pass xxxxx where xxxxx is the valid password for the username entered
in step 5.
8. Response from IND560: 12 Access OK
9. The remote client is now logged onto the Shared Data Server.
To login to the Shared Data Server via Ethernet:
The shared data server is available via port 1701. For applications that have no
access to port 1701, a second port can be enabled. To enable the second port,
enter the desired port number in shared data variable xs0138. This variable cannot
be accessed from the front panel of the IND560 – modify it via the shared data
server (port 1701) to change the second port value.
1. Program appropriate IP and Gateway addresses into the IND560 in the
Communication, Network branch of the menu tree.
2. Connect a crossover cable between the remote client PC and the IND560.
3. Open a program in the client PC to communicate with the IND560 (such as
HyperTerminal).
4. Create a TCP/IP connection to the IP address programmed in the IND560 at
port 1701, or the port assigned using shared data variable xs0138.
5. If the IP and Gateway addresses and the cable connection are correct, the
IND560 will display: Ready for user
6. Type: user xxxxx where xxxxx is a valid username programmed in the
Terminal > Users branch of the setup menu tree. The access level of the
username used will determine which shared data variables can be accessed.
7. If a password is required for the username in the previous step, the terminal
will display: 51 Enter password. If no password is required, skip to step 9.
8. Type: pass xxxxx where xxxxx is the valid password for the username entered
in step 6.
9. Response from IND560: 12 Access OK
B-26
IND560 User’s Guide
10. The remote client PC is now logged onto the Shared Data Server.
Shared Data Server Commands
After connecting to the Shared Data Server in the IND560, several commands are
available for use by the client. All commands can be given in either upper- or
lower-case letters. The quotation marks shown are for clarity only and should not
be transmitted. The valid commands are described in the following sections.
Response Format: “read”, “write”, and “callback” message responses have a
formatted header. The first two characters indicate the status. “00” is the
success status. “99” is a failure status. The next character is the type of
message, “R”, “W”, or “C”. The next three characters are a sequence number,
which cycles from 001 to 999, and then starts over again.
“user” Command
A client must login to the SDSV using the “user” command before accessing
Shared Data. The server validates the username and sends a response message
back to the user. The SDSV responds with [Access OK] if no password is required
or [Enter password] if a password is required.
A client can use only the “user”, “pass”, “help” and “quit” commands before
successfully logging on.
Format: user username
Response 1: 12 Access OK
Response 2: 51 Enter Password
“pass” Command
The user enters a password using the “pass” command. If the password is valid,
the server displays the [Access OK] message. If not valid, the server displays the
[No access] message.
Format: pass password
Response: 12 Access OK
“help” Command
The “help” command returns the list of the valid commands for the IND560.
Format: help
Response: 02 USER PASS QUIT READ R WRITE W SYSTEM CALLBACK XCALLBACK
GROUP RGROUP XGROUP CTIMER LOAD SAVE HELP NOOP
CONTOUT XCOUNTOUT PRINTOUT XPRINTOUT
B-27
IND560 User’s Guide
“quit” Command
The “quit” command terminates the TCP/IP connection.
Format: quit
Response: 52 Closing connection
“read” Command
The “read” command allows the client to read a list of one or more Shared Data
fields. An individual field or an entire block can be read. If more than one field is
requested, the fields should be separated by a space. If successful, the server
responds with a separated list of values in ASCII format. The server separates
individually requested fields with a “~”; and Shared Data separates items within a
block with a ”^”. If an error is detected, the server responds with an error message.
The maximum length of the reply message is 1,024 characters.
Format: read SDV#1 SDV#2
Example 1: read wt0101 wt0103
Response 1: 00R003~
17.08~lb~
Example 2: read sp0100 (reads entire block)
Response 2:

0^0.000000^0.000000^0.000000^~
The ‘read’ command can be abbreviated to the letter “r” if desired.
“write” Command
The “write” command allows the client to write a list of one or more Shared Data
fields. A single field or an entire block can be written. The maximum length of the

“noop” Command
The “noop” command performs no task; it checks communication and returns an
[OK] response message.
Format: noop
Response: 00OK
“callback” Command
The “callback” command allows the client to define one or more fields for which
the Shared Data Server sends a message to the client when the value of the
callback field changes. Only certain SDV may be included in a callback command.
These SDV are noted by an “rc” or “rt” status in the column after the structure
column in the Shared Data document. Mainly, these are triggers that are used in
the terminal. SDV with a status of “na” are not real-time SDV and cannot be used in
callbacks.
The callback message contains one or more changed field names and the new
value for each field. A maximum of twelve callback fields can be specified. The
“ctimer” command specifies the minimum time between repeated callback
messages.
Format: callback SDV#1 SDV#2
Example: callback st0102 st0103 st0104

“xcallback” Command
The “xcallback” command allows the client to remove one or more callback fields
from the list of current SDV.
Format: xcallback SDV#1 SDV#2 or xcallback all (removes all callbacks)
Example: xcallback st0102 (removes st0102 SDV from callback)
Response: 00X008~OK
“group” Command
The “group” command allows the client to define a group of callback fields. The
Shared Data Server sends a message to the client when the value of any field in
the group changes. The group callback message contains the group number and
the values of all fields in the group in the defined order. The “ctimer” command
specifies the minimum time between repeated callback messages. The maximum
number of groups is six, and the maximum number of fields in a group is twelve.
Format: group n SDV#1 SDV#2 SDV#3 (where n = the number of the group 1–6)
Example: group 5 st0103 st0104 st0107 (groups target feeding and tolerance
SDV into one group)
Response 1: 00B019~OK
Response 2: 00C026~group5=0^1^0 (indicates status of all 3 SDV in group 5
whenever any one of them changes)
“rgroup” Command
The “rgroup” command allows the client to define a group of fields. The client can
use the group number to read the entire group at once using the READ command.
The maximum number of groups is six, and the maximum number of fields in a
group is twelve.
Format: rgroup n SDV#1 SDV#2 (where n = the number of the group 1–6)
Example: rgroup 3 di0101 di0102 di0103 di0104 (groups all discrete inputs into
one group that can be read with a single read command)

Example: xgroup 5 (cancels group 5)
Response: 00X011~group=5
“contout” Command
The “contout” command allows the client to define the continuous output string as
a callback field. The Console Print Server sends a message to the client at each
continuous output. The continuous output message is either in the Standard
METTLER TOLEDO Continuous Output format or in a continuous template format.
The “ctimer” command specifies the minimum time between repeated callback
messages. The “xcontout” command removes the registration from the terminal
and the communication will stop.

Using Shared Data to Select Target Table
and Tare Table Records
When the IND560 was released, there were only two ways that a user could select
a Target record or a Tare record from a memory table – through a table search or
by performing a quick recall using the numeric keypad and the softkeys. Beginning
with version 3.0 firmware, Target and Tare records can be recalled from their
respective memory tables using both Shared Data and PLC commands.
The following section outlines the sequence of steps that must followed to recall
memory table records using Shared Data. Please reference the IND560 PLC
Interface Guide (# 72184339, on the documentation CD) for information regarding
the use of a PLC to recall memory table records.
To recall a Target Table record or Tare Table record from a memory table, the first
step is to specify the Tare or Target record ID. Then a command is issued to recall
this specified record ID from either the Tare Table or the Target Table.
Recalling a Target Table Record or Tare Table
Record to Active Status:
1. Log into Shared Data server as directed in previous sections of this Appendix.
2. Using Shared Data field qc0189, write the numeric ID of the record that you
wish to recall from either the Target Table or the Tare Table. Numeric ID is a
maximum two digit value (1-25).
3. Next, write either a 1 or a 6 to Shared Data field qc0189. Writing a “1” will
recall the ID set in qc0190 from the Tare Table; writing a “6” will recall the ID
set in qc0190 from the Target Table.
NOTE: These shared data fields are only applicable for standard
functionality Over/Under or Material Transfer modes of operation. They do
not work for the Fill-560 Application Software. In the Fill-560, Targets must
be specified as Weigh-in Targets or Weigh-out Targets. While Active
Weigh-in and Weigh-out values can be accessed via Shared Data (see the
AF block in the IND560 Shared Data Reference, found on the
documentation CD), there is no mechanism to recall a full Target Table
record and designate it as a Weigh-in or Weigh-out Target.
B-33
IND560 User’s Guide
Table Records in Output Templates
Information regarding activated Target Table and Tare Table records, including
Totalization information, is available for transmission in output (print) templates.
This information can be found in the “TD” block of Shared Data. The TD shared
data fields will report values only if the active Tare or Target record was retrieved
directly from the Tare or Target Table. If manual changes are made to the active
Tare or Target record, these shared data values will report empty fields. Records
can be recalled by any available means: table search, quick recall or remotely via
PLC or Shared Data.
Ethernet
The optional Ethernet port for the IND560 provides a 10 Base-T connection for
connection to an Ethernet network. Up to 10 clients can connect to the IND560 at
one time. The Ethernet port can be used for the following functions:
• Shared data access (described previously)
• Demand output
• Continuous output
• FTP
• Sending calibration alert emails
• Flashing new IND560 firmware
The demand output, continuous output, FTP and flashing new firmware functions
are described in the following sections.
Ethernet Connection to a PC
The optional Ethernet port for the IND560 provides a way to interface a PC to the
IND560 to download and upload files and configuration information. In order to
carry out these functions, the IND560 (with optional Ethernet) must be connected
to the PC with an Ethernet cable.
There are two types of Ethernet cables: Patch and Crossover. Patch cables are
used to connect a PC to a network or a hub. The easiest way to connect a PC to
the IND560 via Ethernet is to use a crossover Ethernet cable (Figure B-1). A
crossover cable connects directly from the PC Ethernet port to the IND560 Ethernet
port (no hubs or network needed). If a crossover cable is unavailable, it is
possible to still connect with two patch cables and a hub (Figure B-2). Both types
of Ethernet cables are readily available at stores that sell computer equipment.

IP Address Setup
The IP addresses must be setup on both the IND560 and the PC as follows:
1. Check the IND560 IP address and subnet mask and note the numbers to
configure the PC. (See Chapter 3.0, Configuration, Communication, Network
for information about network configuration.)
2. The PC and the IND560 should have the same subnet mask.
3. The PC and the IND560 must have unique IP addresses. The IP address
numbers must be the same where the subnet mask is 255, but different where
the subnet mask is 0. See the example in Table B-8 and Figure B-3, which
follow.

whatever setting was active when the screen was accessed.
Ethernet Demand Output
If a demand output connection to Ethernet is made in the connections section of
setup, a remote device may “register” to receive the data through the Ethernet port.
In order to do this, the remote device must login to the shared data server and
send the command to register for the data. The login can be any valid username
and password for the terminal.
When a user logs into the shared data server, he or she acquires the level of
access for the username and password used. All levels of users can receive a
demand string.
If a demand output connection to EPrint is made in the Connections section of
setup, a remote device is not required to “register” with the Shared Data Server to
receive the data through the Ethernet port. The data string simply contains the
assigned template’s information. The EPrint connection is made via the secondary
TCP/IP port at the user-defined port number (set up at Communication > Network
> Port).
B-37
IND560 User’s Guide
Registering for the Demand Output
The “printout” command allows the client to define a Demand Print Stream as a
callback field. The Demand Print Streams include demand print (triggered by the
scale) and custom triggers (triggers 1, 2, and 3). The console print server sends a
message to the client at each print output. Since print messages can span multiple
message blocks (depending upon size), the start of the print message has a
<dprint> tag and the end of the message has a </dprint > tag. After registering for
the demand output, the client will receive the appropriate data stream. The “ctimer”
command specifies the minimum time between repeated callback messages. The
“xprintout” command removes the registration from the terminal and the
communication will stop.
The “xgroup all” command will also terminate any demand output
registrations.
Sequence Example 1
1. Enter the menu tree of setup.
2. In the Connections sub-block of the Communications block of setup, create a
connection for Demand Output assignment to the Ethernet port triggered by
Scale using Template 2.
3. Ensure that the IP and Gateway addresses are programmed properly.
4. Login to the shared data server from the client, (see “user” command in the
Shared Data Server section).
5. Register to receive the demand data by entering the “printout 1” command.
6. The IND560 will acknowledge the registration with a message
[00Gxxx~number PRINTOUT streams=1]. Now, whenever a demand print is
generated, the Template 2 data will be sent to the client.

Ethernet Continuous Output
If a continuous output type of connection to Eprint is made in the connections
section of setup, a remote device is not required “register” with the Shared Data
server, to receive data through the Ethernet port. The data string simply contains
the assigned continuous output or template information. The Eprint connection is
made via the secondary TCP/IP port a the user-defined secondary port number
(configured in setup at Communication>Network>Port).
If a continuous output or continuous template output connection to Ethernet 1 is
made in the connections section of setup, a remote device must “register” to
receive the data through the Ethernet port. In order to do this, the remote device
must login to the shared data server and send the command to “register” for the
data. The login can be any valid username and password for the terminal.
When a user logs onto the shared data server, they acquire the level of access
for the username and password used. All levels of users can receive a
continuous string.
Registering for the Continuous Output
The “contout” command allows the client to define the continuous output string as
a callback field. The Console Print Server sends a message to the client at each
continuous output. The continuous output message is either in the Standard
METTLER TOLEDO Continuous Output format or in a continuous template format.
The “ctimer” command specifies the minimum time between repeated callback
messages. The “xcontout” command removes the registration from the terminal
and the communication will stop.
The “xgroup all” command will also terminate any continuous output
registrations.

The output rate of a Continuous type output over Ethernet is 20Hz by default. This
rate cannot be modified through the terminal setup menu. However, the output rate
can me modified by a Shared Data write to a field in the “cs” block of Shared Data.
Please refer to the IND560 Shared Data Reference on the documentation CD for
specifics.
FTP
The IND560 provides the ability to transfer files using FTP (file transfer protocol).
METTLER TOLEDO recommends the use of the InSIte PC program to assist in this
transfer, but files can also be transferred through the Command prompt using an
FTP client with the following commands.
fget (serial) or get (Ethernet) – all files can be read using this command
fput (serial) or put (Ethernet) – only certain files can be downloaded back to the
IND560 terminal
In order to access any files from the IND560, the client must login to the FTP
server. Valid usernames and passwords are entered in the setup under
Communications, Network, FTP and each username is assigned an access level.
All access levels can read files but only maintenance and administrator levels can
write new files to the terminal (see Chapter 3.0, Configuration for further
information about configuring FTP usernames, passwords, and access levels).
The following list indicates the path for the available files that can be accessed
using the “fget” and “fput” commands.

Terminal Updates
Uploading New Firmware
A new version of firmware can be loaded into the IND560 using either the Ethernet
or COM1 serial port and the METTLER TOLEDO software program InSite. Firmware
can also be upgraded using the USB port and an external USB flash memory
device. These procedures are defined in Chapter 4.0, Service and Maintenance,
Upgrading Firmware.
Uploading Customized Softkey Graphics
Customized graphics for home screen softkeys may be uploaded to the IND560
terminal either using ftp through an Ethernet connection, or through a serial
connection. The file names of each graphic must match the filename of the graphic
it is to be replaced. Lists of these filenames are provided in Chapter 2, Operation.
FTP Upload
Open a DOS window and navigate to the folder where the new Softkey bitmaps are
available.
Once the command line is showing the path of the new bitmaps, open an ftp
connection with the IND560, as shown in Figure B-8
B-43
IND560 User’s Guide
At the ftp prompt, type “put filename.bmp flash:\filename.bmp”. The filename of the
new graphic must be the same as that of the bitmap it replaces. This process can
be repeated to upload multiple bitmap files.
Once all the new softkey graphics are uploaded, quit the ftp session and close the
DOS window. The new softkey graphic can now be used in the terminal, when
selected in setup at Terminal > Softkeys.
Serial Upload
To upload graphics through a serial connection:
1. Use HyperTerminal (or equivalent) to make a serial connection (with Baud =
115200, Data Bits = 8, Parity Bit = None, Stop Bits = 1, Flow Control = 0) to
the IND560 from the PC where the customized graphics reside.
2. Log in to the Shared Data server as admin. Enter a password if the terminal is
configured to require one. To upload files, the login must be at the
administrator level.
