Data sheet


The control unit G5-PM is a powerful precision measuring amplifier for legal-for-trade applications and therefore ideally used for industrial weighing and force measuring applications. The control unit has a very high resolution and a high sampling rate and is therefore suitable for fast and exact weighings.

The control unit G5-PM is characterized by numerous possibilities for industrial communication. Also, the G5-PM has an analog output, an USB port, a SD card, EtherNet and RS 485 interface as well as an integrated web server. Other fieldbus interfaces such as Profibus DP, DeviceNet and ControlNet are optionally available.


Typical applications:

  • High-precision process weighing and control, also for legal-for-trade applications
  • Force measuring application
  • Process automation
  • High speed dynamic weighing


The integrated web server facilitates quick and easy operation and simplifies parameter changes through any web-supporting device. Installations, backups and restore are easy executed via the USB port.
