IND560 Industrial Weighing Terminal Vs. Arlyn Upscale
Power and Performance for Advanced Weighing Applications
The Mettler Toledo IND560 is a discontinued product as of February 2016. This system was replaced by their IND570 which we cover here. Compare the Mettler Toledo IND560 to the Arlyn Upscale. While the IND560 was designed as a versatile weighing system with multiple features, the system is outdated and new technology offers higher resolution displays and more software capabilities.
The IND560 is versatile because of the various weighing controls offered. Quickly weigh, convert and control your weights without complex programming. The IND560 & now IND570 claims to be suitable for most existing systems. The Arlyn Upscale weight indicator offers all of these features but with a larger resolution display, digital keyboard and more advanced communication options.

The UpScale weight indicator from Arlyn Scales not only provides a similar feature set to the IND560, but also adds a number of desirable, high end functions. Perhaps the most exciting improvement is the large, 7” color touchscreen. This makes the user interface both more flexible in use, and much easier for the user.
