R423-MAX Lua application  (CAS summing unit )

R423-MAX Lua application (CAS summing unit )

Release date: 06 Jul 15

 Our Sales Engineer Blake has been busy working with CAS on another R423-MAX Lua application - this time for summing weights from two R323's weighing a container, and logging the results. The R423 and R323's are mounted in a handy carry case. It features:

- USB for a keyboard
- USB for a mass storage device.
- RS232 for connection to D740 remote display
- M12 connectors on the front panel for easy connection and disconnection of the load cells.

The Lua scripting in the R423 sums the weight from each R323and records the container ID and weight details for download as required.
R420-MAX and R423-MAX are programmable indicators configured according to the application - ideal for logging weight applications.

Mixing Applications using Thames Side T95 Weighing Assemblies

Mixing Applications using Thames Side T95 Weighing Assemblies

Release date: 09 Feb 15

Rinstrum is now stocking T95 assemblies which are ideal for weighing large vessels and mixers. Due to the design of the T95 it offers an excellent means of mounting where traditional assemblies with large constrainers were typically required. The T95 offers a self-centring arrangement where the load is applied through a tension S type load cell but in a compression assembly. The assembly then finds its own centre point due to gravity but still offers lateral movement found in many mixer applications.

In addition the M12 connections simplify the cabling and installation and can work back to a simple 4 way summing unit using M12 connections.

Call one of our sales engineers today to discuss weighing arrangements for your next mixing application.

Team Arrow AD 2015 Solar Challenge wrap up by Darren Pearson

Team Arrow AD 2015 Solar Challenge wrap up by Darren Pearson

Release date: 21 Jan 15

We attended the World Future Energy Summit with the cars yesterday and had a chance to see the exhibition and attend the awards ceremony. Compelling speech from president of Egypt and a lifetime award was given to Al Gore.

Congratulations to University of Michigan Solar Car team with their 3 wheel car as the overall winner! In the end Arrow 1 placed 5th after penalties (for speeding...) So 2nd fastest 4 wheel car, 5th overall and on Day 2 we were able to mix it with the best. The car is currently top 3 in the world performance wise – we just need to tune up our strategy and sort out reliability on a few systems. October though will bring a new batch of contenders so we need to step it up a little to stay competitive.

Thanks again to solarracing.org  for great coverage.
