Accuweigh ’s Perth branch fitted an IP69K harsh environment indicator to an existing scale that had been damaged by corrosive liquids at Grass Valley Formulators in Northam, WA. The IP69K harsh environment indicator was fitted in a single day without any delays to the client’s production.
The housing of the Accuweigh’s X320 harsh environment indicator uses a food grade, impact resistant composite alloy housing incorporating a double ‘o’ ring seal to provide superior sealing performance over traditional stainless steel enclosures. The X320 harsh environment indicator is rated to IP69K and can withstand cleaning with high pressure water jets (1400psi) at high temperatures (up to 80°C).
The capacitive keyboard on this harsh environment indicator allows the entire front panel to be constructed as a single piece to eliminate seams and joins that could break down or leak. The capacitance effect of the keypad senses an operator’s finger without requiring any actual pressure on the key.
