RDS Technology (UK) - NEXTGEN 2013
will see RDS debut the new LOADMASTER α100 on-board weighing system, described by the UK based manufacturer as being the new industry benchmark in terms of accuracy and ease of use in difficult conditions and terrains.
The RDS LOADMASTER α100 is an all-new CAN based system combining cutting edge sensor technology and signal processing techniques providing precise and consistent weight information.
With the ever increasing focus on productivity, LOADMASTER α100 has been designed to operate within the fastest loading environments and toughest of conditions compensating for uneven, sloped ground and restricted loading areas reducing cycle times and maximising tons per hour performance.
Loading correctly first time eradicates return trips to the stockpile reducing vehicle movement, fuel usage and machine & tire wear.
The new RDS LOADMASTER α100 uses a 7” colour, resistive touch screen display and additional physical keys providing a modern and ergonomic operator interface.
Suitable for use with up to 10 different attachments e.g. buckets or forks, the system can be retrofitted onto wheeled, telescopic and tractor type loaders.
The system continually measures hydraulic pressure using up to 4 sensors. The pressure signals are captured and filtered through a weighing ‘arc provided by inclination sensors measuring the angle of the main boom.
All signals are processed in the RDS Smart Box and the resultant weight calculation is sent to the terminal mounted in the cabin.
SQL database capability with up to 8 reference fields providing virtually unlimited inputs of products, customers, trucks, hauliers, locations, destinations, mix blends and notes. There is a blend facility with an infinite number of mixes and products.
Video input for switching head unit into reversing camera mode removes the need for additional screen, releasing valuable cab space.
Also on show at NEXTGEN 2013
will be the WEIGHLOG a10 on-board weighing system for truck loading or check weighing, the trade-approvable Loadmaster 9000i and the Liftlog 100+ for forklift trucks.
