RDS to present Loadmaster iX range
Latest on-board weighing instruments, systems and technology for wheel loaders
RWM 2012 will see RDS Technology exhibiting their recently introduced Loadmaster iX range of on-board weighing instruments for wheel loaders.
Loadmaster iX benefits from additional standard features including temperature compensation enhancing system performance, particularly on machines with a wide variation in operating temperature, and angle compensation providing an additional level of precision beneficial on most sites and not just on those with obvious slopes.
In addition, the Loadmaster iX range offers effective management of weighing data. The Loadmaster 8000iX has an integral SD card port for fast and efficient data transfer between the loader and the weighbridge or office PC, as well as allowing pre-registered customer reference data to be uploaded directly to the instrument.
Also available is the trade-approvable Loadmaster 9000i. When fitted to a wheel loader, this on-board weighing scale effectively transforms the loader into a mobile weighbridge which conforms to MID Class Y(b) levels of accuracy.
The company has recently gained approval, via the UK National Measurements Office, to self-verify its instruments. Subject to formal training by RDS, this approval extends to all EU RDS distributors. This will dramatically speed up verification times and reduce end-user costs.
Also on show at RWM will be the new Weighlog α10 on-board weighing system. Incorporating a 4.3in colour, hi-brightness resistive touchscreen display and additional physical keys, it provides a user-friendly on-board weighing system that can be used for truck loading or check-weighing.
Suitable for use with up to 10 different attachments, eg buckets or forks, the system can be retrofitted on to telescopic handlers, skid-steers and compact loaders. The system measures hydraulic pressure using up to four sensors at a certain position on the lifting cycle compensating for pressure changes in the system.
Enhanced storage capability comprising 30 products, 30 customers and up to 5 different recipes allows accurate record-keeping and traceability. The system provides communication and data storage via SD card reader and USB 2.0 host, allowing quick, safe and efficient uploading and downloading of data.
