MSI-8000HD Indicator-Remote Display

Fortified by the acclaimed reputation of its star precursor, MSI-8000HD is the heavy duty version of the reputable handheld MSI-8000 RF remote display. The milled anodized aluminum, IP68-rated, enclosure is mountable in either a direct panel mount or optional tilt stand. The full waterproof construction resists most elements making it especially appealing to the petro-chemical, energy, marine and aerospace industries. Fully compatible with all MSI ScaleCore-based crane scales and dynamometers, the MSI-8000HD provides utmost versatility for any application.

Rugged, Versatile Communication

User-definable function keys and a bold six-digit one inch display ease usability and readability. Process control, safety and other systems benefit with optional relays installed to optimize workflow and operator ease. The MSI-8000HD meters may be used as a fully functional weigh meter with the standard inclusion of a precision 24-bit A/D. Additionally, the MSI-8000HD-2 has RF capability to transmit data to a secondary MSI-8000 or non-A/D MSI-8000HD. Wi-Fi, Ethernet or serial option cards are available for direct connections to networks and computers for advanced traceability and reporting.
