C500 Series is Rinstrum's latest panel mounted industrial process controller, equipped with modern interfaces and increased accuracy. The C500 Series is the culmination of 25 years of weighing controller design, innovating to bring together the best of our 5000 Series with the best of our R400 Series.
Two models are available in the C500 Series. The C520 has a high-contrast LED display and 6 button keypad. The C530 is the same unit, din rail mounted with no display. When panel mounted, the C520 uses a standard DIN cut out and can generally be used as a direct drop-in replacement for the Model 5000. Ideal applications for the C500 Series include truck weighing, process control, OEM, and programmable solutions using the embedded Lua scripting engine.

          - Multi-unit Ethernet network connection to a PC or HMI via USB
          - Connection to PLC using Modbus or Analog output module
