Rinstrum Provides Scales for the Bridgestone World Solar Car Challenge

Rinstrum Provides Scales for the Bridgestone World Solar Car Challenge

Release date: 09 Oct 17

Our Solar Car Scale was in use last week to weigh the solar cars in the 2017 WSC. The scales use four 75kg planar beam loadcells to provide 300% overload protected 200kg scales that can be deployed accurately on any flat surface including carpet. Overall the technology allows for extremely low profile rugged scales that are ideal for a huge range of medical and industrial applications. We have updated the Lua scripting in the R423 unit that is mounted in the carry case along with a printer.

T Series weight transmitters

T Series weight transmitters

Release date: 05 Jul 17

The T Series weight transmitters have been used by OEM customers for many years in various customised versions. We now have available a product page with datasheet and reference manual for a standard version. The T series units allow for network addressing up to 31 units to support ring networking. Measurement chain and application firmware is identical to the R320 instrument so nothing new to learn for field technicians to setup and calibrate.

Two versions are available: 

T620: the IP68 waterproof T620 with M12 connectors

T610: for DIN rail applications using RJ45 patch cabling.

Both use the same interface as the R320, so you can use the View300 to set up the units. Alternatively ask us about a special R320 that can be used as a handheld configuration tool for the T-series.

Please call the sales engineer in your region to discuss your application.
