Rinstrum has launched a stainless steel dedicated baggage-weighing indicator, the R325. It allows for easy monitoring of both the total weight summing and the number of bags to ensure preset bag numbers and weight limits are not exceeded. Dedicated key pad functions increase input capabilities and decreases the chance of operator error. Pre-determined bag and total weight limits prevent excess baggage weights being accepted by the operator.

The R325 has built in RS323 and RS485 communications to work with the D323 remote display and a network or printer. The R325 indicator and D323 remote display are slim line stainless steel panel mounting and feature an LCD with LED backlighting.

2100 Series V3 No Longer Valid for Trade Stamping

2100 Series V3 No Longer Valid for Trade Stamping

Release date: 19 Jul 12

The 2100 Series indicators and remote have been modified with the Version 3 release due to end of life on one of the components. The 2100 V3 is not valid for trade stamping and no longer is covered by NSC (S-403) nor OIML (R76) due to the excitation changing from 8V to 8.5V. This applies to the V3 2100, 2101 and 2150 products.

The 2101 is still valid as it is approved under the S1/0/A regulation in which the Excitation regulator is not used.

Specifically the 2150 Luggage Weighing indicator has been replaced with the R300 series (either R323 stainless steel housing or R320 ABS housing) using specialist luggage weighing firmware. The 2150 is no longer available.

The 2100 and 2101 will continue to be available while production quantities remain viable, along with spares. We recommend that the 2100 and 2101 should not be used for new design, please contact your local Rinstrum office to discuss alternatives.
