For PLC systems that require weight data from a scale, Rice Lake’s compact SCT-20 transmitter delivers equivalent signal-conditioning function without the cost or bulk of a full size weight indicator/controller.

Each Rice Lake SCT-20 is DIN-rail mountable within a cabinet or control panel, where it converts a scale’s load cell signals to analog output, serial output, or a specific network protocol. Unlike many other signal transmitters, Rice Lake’s SCT-20 has its own .3 inch weight display, with annunciators for unit and weighing status, and push buttons for zero, tare and setpoint entry—simplifying scale setup, calibration and operation.

• Space saving, vertical shape with DIN-rail mounting

• Push button or preset tare
• Converts digital weight to analog output or optional DeviceNet™ or Profibus or EtherNet/IP protocol
• Supports ASCII or MODBUS-RTU protocols
• Full-scale analog output with zero setting and PLC correction of analog signal
• Bit swapping selection for little endian and big endian format
• Two digital inputs, three digital outputs
• One serial port, RS-232 simplex and RS-485 connection
• CD manual
