      What is the DT-I-500?

      The Marsden DT-I-500 is a heavy duty drive thru platform scale with a multifunctional, programmable indicator. The I-500 indicator is built bespoke to your needs for accurate, streamlined weighing processes. With a large choice of optional extras and programming options, this UK-built indicator can perform automated tasks just as you need it to.

      How can I increase production efficiency with this scale?

      Using a scale that can be programmed to your needs can help you increase efficiency, by making weighing processes more accurate, reducing human input and reducing waste.

      The DT-I-500 has upto 16 input/output ports available, and with relay options available the scale can be used to control other devices. This, and the hi/lo alarms and target setting features available, make the DT-I-500 highly suited to automated sequential batching and filling. Recipe formulation is a particularly popular application for the I-500 indicator.

      Text and product information can be inputted into the indicator, which helps speed up labelling and also allows fast access to data for specific products. An optional QWERTY keyboard is available to make inputting information easier. The indicator has 64k of internal memory for storing this information. A USB adaptor with memory stick can also be purchased for storing additional information.

      Two LCD or LED screens make it easier to view the information you need to see.

      The indicator's swipe card or barcode reader interface means that users can access the indicator to use weighing features specific to their need or role. The swipe card functionality can be set up for multiple purposes - for example to switch the scale on.

      As the DT-I-500 is built to order, and programming options are so diverse, we do not list options and accessories for the scale on our website. We recommend you speak to our team or send us your requirements before purchasing this scale.

      What are the benefits of a drive thru scale?

      A drive thru platform scale allows you to weigh palletised goods quicker, particularly if you use pallet trucks.

      The low profile ramps allow you to push a pallet truck onto the scale and get an instant weight. The weight of the pallet truck and the pallet itself can be removed using Tare, leaving you with just the weight of the goods.

      Why should I choose the DT-I-500?

      Choose the DT-I-500 for automated weighing in factories and warehouses. This fully programmable weighing scale is perfect for companies that wish to make weighing quicker, easier, more accurate and traceable. If you have specific weighing and recording requirements, and can’t find an off-the-shelf solution, choose this scale.

      This multi-functional scale can suit almost any application. The I-500 indicator is particularly suited to recipe formulation in food factories and processing plants.

      The low profile, mild steel platform is durable and can weigh items upto 1500kg. Loadcells and cables are securely mounted within the structure of the platform, protecting them from damage by fork trucks when they are being moved.

      The easy to use I-500 indicator is stainless steel.

      To find out if the DT-I-500 is right for your needs, and to discuss bespoke functionality, call the Marsden team on 01709 364296. Alternatively, you can send us your requirements here.

      Please note: Where a price is based on the weight of a product the weighing scale used, by law, must be Trade Approved. The DT-I-500 is supplied as a non approved platform scale as standard - please contact us for a quote if you need the scale to be legal for trade use.
