Sri Lanka - Rinstrum Pvt Site Acquisition
Release date: 06 Sep 16
Last week Rinstrum completed another major milestone with the acquisition of the property that our manufacturing facility in Sri Lanka has been operating in for the past 3 years. It is located on the south west coast of Sri Lanka only 15 minutes from the International Airport and Air Freight Terminal. The site has full back-up power, a 21,000 sq ft building and a bungalow. It accommodates our primary manufacturing operation and our Sri Lankan engineering team. Currently we have 32 staff working in Rinstrum Pvt. Recently we have expanded our in house capability to include a small run surface mount assembly line. Rinstrum Pvt manufactures componentry that is used in the build to order manufacturing in our Australian, German and US offices.

SOLAS Container Weight Verification Requirement
Release date: 08 Jun 16
The updated SOLAS convention requires the shipper to provide a container verified gross weight, using verified equipment according to the state, in the shipping documentation to the terminal operator, effective 1 July 2016.
Rinstrum has been working with companies on a range of solutions to satisfy the SOLAS convention to provide verified container weights. Some countries/states have interpreted verified as trade others have not, this will affect the selected solution. Rinstrum can assist in solutions that range from weighing the truck to weighing the container:
Rinstrum existing onboard truck weighing application would also allow for container weighing (R400 Series Indicator using K491 firmware)
- The responsibility for obtaining and documenting the verified gross weight of a packed container lies with the shipper. The shipper is responsible for providing an accurate “verified gross mass” for each packed container.
Calibrated and certified equipment: means a scale, weighbridge, lifting equipment or any other device, capable of determining the actual gross mass of a packed container or of packages and cargo items, pallets, dunnage and other packing and securing material, that meets the accuracy standards and requirements of the State in which the equipment is being used.

Bagging Scale with Robotic Arm using a Rinstrum R423 Lua Programmable Indicator
Release date: 18 May 16
After a permissive start and the scale is tared. Parts and material are then robotically adds to the product, after which there is a second control trigger and weight capture. This is compared to the three check weighing bands to confirm the proper amount of material was actually dispensed. What was challenging about this project is that it is a 3 kg scale that measures 20 inches across and the tolerances are extremely tight (~½ gram). The application uses an R423 programmable weight indicator running custom Lua script.
Conveyor Application - Lua Programmable Rinstrum R423 Indicator
Release date: 16 May 16
Conveyor roller scale application that allows for averaging and weight capture along with high/low/go recordings on an R423 Stainless Steel Indicator panel mounted on a custom a console running custom Lua script.
If any packages are outside the high or low tolerance the powered belt conveyor will shut down. The re-start button will need to be pressed to re-start the belt motor.

Merrick Heley in our Design team in Australia has setup a pretty flash scoring arrangement for our lunch time table tennis - fondly named rinSCORE in keeping with Rinstrum tradition.
rinSCORE is a table tennis scoreboard that acts as sample code for a number of key Lua library features incorpating:
All on an R420 indicator running Lua!
This sample code can be used in weighing applications, for example to save and process live weight data on an external server, rather than backing it up on a USB and synchronising it after a certain time period.

Lua Application: R420 configured as a Remote with remote print and zero
Release date: 23 Mar 16
The application was used to configure a remote indicator about 1 mile away from the main truck scale (replacing a legacy GSE system).
- An R423 indicator was panel mounted in the cabinet at the scale.
- An R420 was configured as a remote indicator to display the weight from the main scale and allow remote zero and remote printing.
- third party wireless serial communications was used between the indicators
- Custom records in Lua were created in the R420 to simulate the printing that was happening outside.
The Lua software dev tools made it easy to ensure backward compatibility.

New training video reflash an R400 Series indicator
Release date: 14 Mar 16
Learn how to reflash the firmware on a R400 Series indicator (R420 or R423). Download the firmware, connect the indicator up to your computer using a rinLINK and run the exe file to load in new firmware.
Note: When changing to a different application (e.g. K401 to K402)

R300 and X320 Updates
Release date: 28 Jan 16
As part of our continual improvement to our products we have updated the hardware on our R300 series and X320 indicators with additional memory. This upgrade allows for all four firmware variants to be preloaded into R300 series indicators - meaning no reflashing to change between firmware. Additionally the extra memory has allowed us to reintroduce a number of features that were previously available, including:
