  • USB device port connects directly to a PC
  • Ethernet TCP/IP polled or continuous
  • AC or DC models
  • Built-in DIN-rail clips on controller box (panel mount)
  • Display and controller can be separated up to 250 ft (panel mount)
  • Hardware slot for one option card
  • Operator functions through menu key for audit trail, preset tare, accumulator, time & date and setpoints
  • Audit trail tracking for configuration and calibration changes. Password protection for user and configuration changes.
  • 20 setpoints with latched batch engine or unlatched outputs
  • Four onboard digital I/O channels
  • Programmable ticket formats up to 1,000 characters for header text, gross, net, accumulator and setpoints
  • Local/remote operation
  • Multi-range or multi-interval weighing
  • Filter settings for light, medium and heavy noise


  • Metrological hardware sealing kit
  • Adapter plate for converting 310 A and 520 panel mounts
  • Panel mount kit for universal enclosure

Designed with the user process in mind and built for communication, Rice Lake’s Performance™ Series weight indicators/controllers are packed with power, yet simple in design. Intuitive multifunction menu keys allow navigation in any application and the NEMA Type 4X/IP69K-rated gasket effectively keeps internal components out of harm’s way. Twenty time- and weight-based setpoints provide ultraresponsiveness to handle any processcontrol requirement. For customized operation, use Rice Lake's intuitive iRite software to program functionality specific to the application. The innovative 880 and 880 Plus also accommodate a wide range of connectivity—from USB and RS-232/ RS-485 to Ethernet TCP/IP. With two different enclosure types to choose from, Rice Lake’s 880 Performance Series exceeds your expectations wherever you need it.

880 Performance

The sleek design of the 880 not only looks great, it also fits great into existing and new panels alike. At just under five inches deep, the efficiently designed enclosure fits easily into compact spaces with DIN-rail clips to make mounting quick and effortless. The 880’s modular design enables the display to be remotely mounted, especially useful for instances when it is inconvenient to mount the controller on a conventional panel.

880 Performance Plus

Equipped with a universal mount, the 880 Plus delivers all of the powerful features of the 880 when a panel mount isn’t necessary. The numeric keypad simplifies the user experience, making operations more convenient and flexible.

EtherCat Interface EtherCAT (Ethernet for Control Automation Technology) is an Ethernet-based fieldbus system, invented by Beckhoff Automation. The protocol is standardized in IEC 61158 and is suitable for both hard and soft real-time computing requirements in automation technology.    
EthernetNet/IP Interface Ethernet is the most widely installed local area network (LAN) technology. Ethernetis a link layer protocol in the TCP/IP stack, describing how networked devices can format data for transmission to other network devices on the same networksegment, and how to put that data out on the network connection.    
ProfiNet Interface Is an Industrial Ethernet - The short answer is that PROFINET is faster with more bandwidth and larger messages    
ModBus/TCP Interface Modbus TCP- Modbus is a communication protocol developed by Modicon systems. In simple terms, it is a method used for transmitting information over serial lines between electronic devices. The device requesting the information is called the ModbusMaster and the devices supplying information are Modbus Slaves.    
DeviceNet Interface Is a network protocol used in the automation industry to interconnect control devices for data exchange. It utilizes the Common Industrial Protocol over a Controller Area Network media layer and defines an application layer to cover a range of device profiles.    
Profibus Interface Process Field Bus -is a classical serial fieldbus    
Profibus DP Interface There are two variations of PROFIBUS in use today; the most commonly used PROFIBUS DP, and the lesser used, application specific, PROFIBUS PA:PROFIBUS DP (Decentralised Peripherals) is used to operate sensors and actuators via a centralised controller in production (factory) automation applications.
