The EM100 is a high-precision amplifier that features an integrated analogue- to-digital converter. It leverages a 24-bit sigma-delta signal modulation to ensure exceptional resolution with low noise. Sporting an extensive selection of weighing and calibration functions, it suits a wide range of both static and dynamic weighing applications.

The device comes in four versions tailored to different applications, each certified to the relevant OIML legal-for-trade standards. An optional adapter board is available for simplified mounting to peripherals.

The device features a CAN interface with support for the CANopen protocol as well as full-duplex RS-232 and RS-485 interfaces. A USB interface is included for convenient configuration, setup and firmware upgrade. Communication to the module is based on ASCII characters sent to a variety of serial interfaces making it easy to connect to a PC, PLC or other devices. Setup is simple, using a terminal emulation program or FDC application software (available at flintec.com).
