Rinstrum Provides Scales for the Bridgestone World Solar Car Challenge

Release date: 09 Oct 17

Our Solar Car Scale was in use last week to weigh the solar cars in the 2017 WSC.

Overall the technology allows for extremely low profile rugged scales that are ideal for a huge range of medical and industrial applications.

Rinstrum C500 Series Launch – Introductory May Offer

Release date: 04 May 17

It is with great pleasure that we introduce the C500 industrial controller range. Equipped with modern interfaces, increased accuracy and user programmability, it is the culmination of our 25 years of industrial weight indicator design experience.

Like the R400 Series, there are accessory modules for communications, eight I/O and analog output that includes two convenient onboard I/O for monitoring low level and high level alarms. All accessory modules are electrically isolated and the AC power module includes 12VDC out.

User Programmability is standard through built in embedded Lua scripting.

Stock Code Part Number update to LED large digit remote displays

Release date: 13 Feb 17

With the release of the new price catalogue we have had a change of part numbers for the Large High Visibility Remote Displays.

Please note that existing stock will still have the old stock code part numbers on the packaging and on labels, marketing materials and website until these are changed to the new numbers. This stock code part number change was done to fix mismatches in our global part numbering and include the software version in the part number, standardising these with the Rinstrum indicator part number format.

SOLAS- Verified Gross Mass (VGM) Update 2017

SOLAS- Verified Gross Mass (VGM) Update 2017

Release date: 11 Jan 17

What is this "SOLAS" regulation?
Declaring your container’s gross mass has always been a requirement under the shipping regulations. However, with more frequent accidents occurring and delays due to miss-declared weight, it has become a priority to ensure these weights are verified before loading the containers onto a vessel.
SOLAS regulation states the approval of two methods in verifying the gross mass of packed containers and both these methods must be done with calibrated and certified equipment.
Method 1: Weighing the container after it has been packed
Method 2: Weighing all the cargo and contents of the container and adding those weights to the container’s tare weight.
No estimated weight is permitted and the weighing equipment must meet national certification and calibration standards.
