D800 Series Remote Upgrades

Release date: 16 Mar 15

Upgraded firmware is now available in the D820 and D840 that includes protocol upgrades. Protocol 4 (Ranger D) has been enhanced for 7 character support offering improved interfacing to computer batching systems, for example Command Alkon.

The upgraded firmware in the D730 includes Protocol 4 and the units are now configurable via the Configuration Software where unit addressing is supported allowing for multi-drop setup and control over brightness and time out parameters.

A revised Protocol Manual (for all three units) is available in the download section.

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.

Arrow 1 will be starting in 4th position (of 15 cars) - well done Team Arrow! For those of you who don't follow F1 or V8 Super Cars, the Yas Marina Circuit really does have a marina in the middle of it - amazing place.
