Cardinal Scale's EPR+ Plus truck scale is available in impervious hydraulic or electronic load-cell types. Featuring baked-on, anti-corrosion powder paint, the legal-for-trade [NTEP] standard EPR+ Plus arrives prepared for installation, as interconnecting load blocks and receivers for each scale bridge are secured without bolts. The system includes factory-assembled DB75,000-pound stainless steel load cells, which can withstand the weight of up to 150% of published load cell capacity. A wide selection of EPR+ Plus capacities, platform sizes, and types suits various applications.
Rodent protection is now standard via integral conduit throughout each scale module. Its heavy-duty, no-bolt access covers over load cells and surge-suppression boxes safeguard all components, yet are easily removed for routine cleaning.
Owing to the company's Con-Lock system that enables material to flow through I-beams and lock into place, the concrete deck scale arrives ready for pouring of the mix ó no rebar is needed. Every model includes receiving brackets for installation of optional side rails; and, mounting brackets are flush with the scale deck to accommodate pit-type applications.
A range of weight indicators supports the ability to print and send weight data to a PC. Options such as Ethernet communications or badge readers provide additional truck weight management.
Separately, for continuous bulk-commodity weighing, Cardinal's 825-CBW provides customer and product identification, single or multiple loading, and ship or receive modes. System components include the 825 Spectrum weight indicator; software package designed for continuous bulk weighing; and tape printer.
The digital weight indicator offers onscreen ticket configurability, unlimited truck/ID storage, digital fill-control management, color-coded check weighing operations, and simultaneous onscreen monitoring of up to 10 scales. A pair of 32-bit processors and 64 MB user memory help filter truck/ID storage and accumulator data, plus onscreen viewing and/or printing of reports. Users can sort by company name, truck number, fleet, ID, accumulator, time, date, oldest or newest load; and the truck storage database can be shared with a PC for creating, editing, sorting, and billing.
Display features include 640 x 480 pixel color back-lit interactive touchscreen LCD; color-coded QWERTY keyboard for data entry; pictorial representation of bulk weigher and gates; target weight; total drafts required; navigation keys combined with intuitive menus for user-friendly setup; and multiple language selection.
Operational features offer ship or receive modes; single loading; multiple loading for handling unit trains; and presets for target weight, draft size or number of drafts, customer identification and ënext' (used when loading multiple cars).
Mettler Toledo's new VLM3 A series uses dual-ended-beam load cells for general-purpose weighing of tanks, hoppers, and machinery. The self-checking design suits static loading in applications where thermal expansion and contraction occurs.
Mounting hardware is available in painted carbon steel or glass bead-blasted stainless steel. Carbon steel assemblies are provided with the (nickel-plated alloy steel) SLD425 load cell; stainless steel assemblies use the stainless steel SLD525 load cell.
Factory Mutual Entity-approved in both the United States and Canada, the load cells meet hazardous area requirements, since their high impedance [700 ohms nominal] results in low voltage drop in hazardous areas. VLM3 A series is available in 1,000- through 75,000-pound capacities.
Also constructed to withstand extreme conditions, the company's digital Powercell PDX load cells in truck and rail scales offer predictive diagnostics via self-monitoring that provides onscreen, e-mail, or text-message notification of potential weighing errors. Additionally, an on-board microprocessor continually adapts to variables, such as temperature, nonlinearity, hysteresis, voltage variation, and sensor creep, that affect all strain-gauge load cells.
The model eliminates all junction boxes, commonly a cause of vehicle-scale failures; simplifies network (due to no junction boxes), reducing connections by at least 25% compared to other systems; has lightning protection for each cell, verified (by independent, third-party testing) to withstand multiple direct strikes in excess of 80,000 amperes; and includes submersible, hermetically sealed load-cell enclosures, plus braided, stainless-steel sheathing to protect heavy-duty cables. Further, quick-release connectors facilitate maintenance.
Rice Lake's LaserLT provides remote display of weight values. Effective indoors or out, the device allows users to locate basic indicator function at a secondary site, changing units, gross/net, tare, zero and print via five-button keypad. A special lens material and optional visor improve the contrast of LaserLT's 1Ω-inch display, fully adjustable for viewing at up to 50 feet.
The LaserLT is daisy chainable for linking multiple units to a single indicator/controller. Six enunciators and a red-and-green stop/go feature aid communication.
The display unit can be installed with any electronic weight indicator or peripheral equipment using either fiber-optic, Ethernet, or wireless methods. An enhanced learn mode recognizes any model or brand indicator/controller. It has a watertight, industrial-grade 304 stainless-steel enclosure.
