Accuweigh’s Newcastle branch recently installed a weighbridge for Simsmetal’s Port Macquarie depot for weighing local scrap metal collections.
As the weighbridge is positioned further than 6 metres away from the weighbridge office, special measures were taken to ensure the weighbridge installation complied with government regulations:
- A Rinstrum R5000 digital weight indicator is fitted to the side of the weighbridge and transmits the weight readings to the weighbridge office (the main display must be within 6 metres)
- A Rinstrum R323 remote display inside the weighbridge office displays the weight readings to the weighbridge operator
- A PC running Simsmetal’s own weighbridge software also receives the weight data from the digital weight indicator
- A Rinstrum D740 large digit remote display is mounted outside the weighbridge office displays the weight readings to the truck driver
The heavy duty weighbridge is 20m long by 3m wide using 6 x Flintec stainless steel loadcell with an IP68 rating.
