R400 Batching - Product Launch K412

Release date: 30 Nov 12

The R400 indicator now supports three (3) batching firmware applications to create a powerful and flexible batching controller. The three variants of firmware differ primarily in the number of materials they each support. The K410 is single material and ideal for filling, the K411 supports 6 materials and the K412 20 materials. The K411 and K412 are both suitable for multi-head batching machines and more complex control systems using multiple materials.

Each supports 100 recipes and 10 stages of batching. The batching stages can be defined as fill, dump or pulse. Three (3) speeds of filling can be configured depending on the complexity of the batching system.

Application Software K410 K411* K412
Number of Materials 1 6 20

*Only K411 supports Analogue Module

2100 Series V3 No Longer Valid for Trade Stamping

2100 Series V3 No Longer Valid for Trade Stamping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.
