RDS and Loup Electronics launch LOADEX 100 at CONEXPO 2014

The next generation of onboard scales will be on show at the Loup Electronics booth offering the widest choice for all types of loaders and excavators.  


Making its market debut,LOADEX 100 is a retrofittable scale installed on both tracked and wheeled 360 degree excavators and material handling machines to weigh the amount of net material load in the bucket or grab.

Up to two pressure sensors are installed into the hydraulic lift system, with the addition on machines with assistor accumulator cylinders, of up to two more compensation pressure sensors.

The pressure signals are captured, filtered and corrected by measuring the angle of the main boom using either an RDS Inclinometer or Mechanical Angle sensor.

When used dynamically, the pressures are captured through a set weighing zone. The system may also be used in static weighing mode; the boom can either be lifted to a set weighing position where the pressure is captured, or measuring constantly in a live mode at any required boom height. Both dynamic and static weighing positions are adjustable by the operator to suit any job required, which will enable the machine to be used at its most efficient output.

Dipper arm position corrections are made from a mechanical angle sensor mounted on the boom to dipper arm elbow pivot. This provides fast and precise dipper arm angle measurement that is not effected by inertia g-forces or acceleration effects.

Slope corrections are made from another inclination sensor on the chassis.
