Control an Adam industrial scale via its RS232 serial port
In this example, we’ll connect a ACE PLC to an Adam CPWplus75 lab scale.
The Scale to ACE connection involves 3 wires.
- GND to GND
- Tx to Rx
- Rx to Tx
The following ACE program implements 5 of the industrial electronic scale’s functions
- Tare/Zero – which sets the zero weight, so that you can measure things inside a container and not the container itself.
- Hold – holds the last value for a period of time
- Read Net Weight
- Read Gross Weight
- Read Tare Weight
