The information was just released that effective December 14, 2015 the GSE 460 and 465 Digital Weight Indicators are being discontinued. This has been a very popular line of digital scale controllers over the years and this cancelation will likely affect hundreds of customers who have grown to use this instrument in their weighing process. The GSE 460 and 465 line of popular scale readouts were preceded by the GSE 450 and 550 weight indicators which are still asked for by customers on a fairly regular basis. Avery Weigh-Tronix will continue to provide service spares (repair parts) as long as components are available, for up to five years.
With this line of indicators being phased out, this provides an opportunity for customers to become more familiar with the ZM401, ZM405 indicators and Ztools 2.0, which support legacy GSE macros.The ZM401 and ZM405 indicators provide a replacement solution for the 460 and 465 with more features. There are no competitive products that offer the IBN display with its Graphic Array, third party IP69K certified compliance, standard USB and Ethernet along with the Ztools 2.0 platform with its Simulation, application development, code editing and testing. The ZM400 series has also been designed to support application programs that have been built on legacy platforms, including supporting legacy GSE macros.
