Weight Transmitter CAN MK-MES

Weight Transmitter – Can-MK-MES

The weight transmitter Can-MK-MES is a high-performance, autonomous solution for weight measurement in automation networks for belt weighing applications (Continuous Totalizer).

This weight transmitter converts an analog signal from a load cell into a digital signal.

This stand-alone measuring module can be combined with all CAN-MK modules and weighing indicators in our range.

The modules can be linked together without wiring, simply by juxtaposing them on a DIN rail (bottom of the cabinet for example).


Main advantages of this converter – autonomous weighing (or weight) transmitter:

  • Measuring weighing module for autonomous analog sensors
  • Chaining of modules together on a DIN rail
  • 2 serial interfaces (1 x RS232, 1 x RS485 – 2 fils)
  • Serial wiring of the modules
  • Scalable configuration up to 8 CanMK-MES + 1 CanMK-4I/4O + 1 CanMK-FB


Main characteristics of the Can-MK-MES :

  • Fast analog/digital measurement converter : up to 180 measurements per second
  • Analog measurement input for strain gauge load cells
  • Digital inputs (one for speed control, belt weighing)
  • 2 serial interfaces (1 x RS232, 1 x RS485 – 2 wires)
  • CAN network interfaces (including one for interconnecting the modules with each other)
  • Quick diagnostic lights on the front panel


Weighing indicator compatible with this weight transmitter :


This weight transmitter module (or weighing) associated with the “Fieldbus Gateway” module allows communication with a PLC.

Several protocols are available:

  • Profibus-DP
  • DeviceNet
  • Ethernet ModBus/TCP
  • Profinet
  • Ethernet / IP
