INTECONT®Tersus for Measuring Systems


  • Compact weighing electronics for continuous measuring systems 
  •  High resolution colour LCD-Display 
  • User language selectable and loadable 
  • Optimal communication structures for fieldbuses and Ethernet-Networks
  • EasyServe PC program for convenient commissioning and service
  •  High operating convenience, automatic calibration programs 
  • Optional legal-for-trade variant



The INTECONT Tersus weighing electronics is specially designed for weighing in continuous production processes. It is the right solution whenever material flows have to be measured and acquired with high accuracy with the use of

  • Belt weighers (MULTIBELT®)
  • Solids flow meters (MULTISTREAM®) [in 2012]
  • Coriolis mass flow meters (MULTICOR®) [in 2012]

This also covers special applications, e.g. legal-for-trade weighing or use in the hazardous area [in 2012].

The INTECONT Tersus weighing electronics is primarily designed for applications with a need for convenient and elaborate display, control and monitoring, in addition to basic measuring functions.
The weighing electronics ensures repeatability and transparency of the production process.



The electronics is supplied as front-ofpanel mounting unit or with an optional wall-mounting housing for installation at site. The system is operated via an ergonomically styled keyboard organised into operating and service functions.
The colour LCD-display shows clearly measuring values and status information. Equipped with appropriate communication module, INTECONT Tersus optimally fits into any automated environment. The Ethernet network connection is included in the basic equipment.


Operating Principle

  • Although the INTECONT Tersus functions vary with every scale type, the basic equipment is always the same:
  • System accuracy for weighing tasks better than 0.05 %
  • Manual and/or automatic zero setting
  • Full feed/dribble feed control for accurate batching
  • High electromagnetic compatibility
  • Galvanically isolated outputs
  • Totalizing counter pulses
  • Fail-safe data memory
  • Integrated diagnostics and self-testing functions
  • Preset with default values for easy and quick commissioning
  • User language in German, English, Italian, Spanish and French. More languages loadable including Chinese or Russian (Cyrillic)
  • Automatic calibration programs, theoretical span calibration without auxiliaries
  • Configurable and selectable display modes
  • Simulation mode for testing and learning
  • Status, event, calibration and quantity reports

Weighing Functions

As a function of mechanical system used, the actual feed rate is acquired using:

  • Belt load and belt speed (belt weighers)
  • Reactive force (solids flow meters)
  • Direct mass flow measurement on the Coriolis principle (mass flow meters)

In addition to the comprehensive basic equipment, the following weighing functions are available:

  • Belt weighers
  • Accurate belt speed measurement
  • Belt influence compensation (BIC)
  • Belt run monitoring
  • Shifting of weighing to point of discharge
  • Legal-for-trade variant (upon request)
  • Solids Flow Meters 
  • Adaption to varying measuring chute characteristics
  • Coriolis Mass Flow Meters 
  • Accurate speed and torque acquisition
