RDS Technology, the UK based on-board weighing specialists, are pleased to announce the launch of the new Loadmaster iX range of on-board weighing instruments for wheeled loaders.
Loadmaster iX benefits from additional standard features including temperature compensation enhancing system performance particularly on machines with a wide variation in operating temperature and angle compensation providing an additional level of precision beneficial on most sites and not only those with obvious slopes.
In addition, the Loadmaster iX range offers effective management of weighing data. The Loadmaster 8000iX has an integral SD card port for the fast and efficient transfer of data between loader and weighbridge or office PC and enables pre-registered customer reference data to be uploaded directly to the instrument.
Also available is the trade-approvable Loadmaster 9000i. When fitted to a wheeled loading shovel, this on-board weighing scale effectively transforms the loader into a mobile weighbridge which conforms to MID Class Y(b) levels of accuracy.
The company has recently gained approval via the UK National Measurements Office to self-verify its instruments. Subject to formal training by RDS, this approval extends to all EU RDS distributors. This will dramatically speed up verification times and reduce end user costs.
For further bespoke data management options, the Loadmaster 9000i DMM features an extended data-handling module. This has been specially designed with the integral SD card port central to the system. Up to six separate reference fields for each truck loading cycle can be stored in a comprehensive database for detailed record keeping. The details of each field can be uploaded to the instrument from the SD card or programmed onto the card directly through the instrument. The card exports the weighing data into an Excel compatible file, ready for use with company invoice and record systems. Such product traceability makes it ideal for material handling applications in demolition operations, recycling plants and other potentially harmful or toxic areas.
