Feb. 24, 2016
G5 weighing instruments feature a new hardware platform with extensive communication capabilities.

BLH Nobel introduces the new G5 family of weighing instruments. Featuring a new hardware platform with extensive communication capabilities, BLH Nobel G5 instruments support a range of industrial applications including process weighing and control, force measurement, factory automation, high dynamic force measurement and high-speed batching/blending systems.

Through a built-in web server, the G5 instruments reportedly speed up setup and simplify parameter changes, enabling remote operation. Weight and status are instantly displayed alongside other parameters and diagnostics information via user-friendly operator interface.

Two mounting options are offered: a panel-mount version for 24 V DC or 115/230 V AC operation and a rail-mount version for 24 V DC operation only. The panel-mount version comes equipped with a 4.3-inch high-resolution color screen that increases visibility and enables easy navigation through parameter settings and menus.

Many industrial communication interfaces are supported, including Modbus/TCP, Ethernet/IP, FTP, HTTP, Profibus, DeviceNet, ControlNet and Modbus RTU, as well as the traditional RS485 and analog outputs. Users can configure the G5 digital I/O signals according to their discrete control requirements. Software upgrades can be made in the field using an SD card. Custom software designed to customer requirements is available upon request. Parameter backup and restoration is offered via the G5's USB port, SD card and internal memory.
