Enhanced Connectivity and Data Management Enables Efficiency of Weighing Processes to be Optimised

Mar 20 2019 Read 842 Times

Mettler Toledo is pleased to announce an upgrade to their MS-TS advanced level analytical and precision balances, which provides advanced connectivity and reporting capabilities for easier data management.

MS-TS advanced level balances are equipped with four interfaces and various services for easy connectivity. With the choice of built-in Ethernet, USB Host, USB Device and RS232 interfaces, it is quick and easy to connect MS-TS Advanced Level balances to peripheral devices and company networks (such as LAN, PC, USB memory stick, printer, barcode reader, keyboard or auxiliary display). New functionality allows data transfer directly to an FTP server. With the additional options of WLAN and Bluetooth, via the new wireless dongle, transfer of weighing data is simple and convenient. Features such as Balance Web Access enable remote viewing of weighing results, by accessing the MS-TS balance from a web browser on any tablet or PC. This makes it possible to view weighing results from anywhere within your company network, as well as perform basic balance operations such as tare or print, from a second screen.

Advanced reporting and publishing options for MS-TS advanced level balances offer flexibility on how to save, print and export weighing results and associated metadata. Reports can be tailored to the user or process to further improve productivity whilst controlling product quality. Operators can customise the inclusion of weighing metadata to results reports according to their requirements. For example, information about balance setup, including the levelling status and the last adjustment, can be appended to support the accuracy of results. A variety of formats are available with the latest software version: PDF, TXT, XML, and CSV. This allows weighing data to be transferred to a file server as a PDF report, which is ideally suited to on-screen viewing or electronic archiving. Alternatively, for further processing and analysis, data can be conveniently saved in standard CSV or XML file formats, either on to a USB memory stick or directly exported to an FTP server. Simultaneous publishing of different formats over different interfaces is also possible. For example, the balance can simultaneously send measurement reports to a strip printer via USB, for archiving in a lab journal, and send more comprehensive data files directly to a networked printer or FTP server via Ethernet.
