Loadmaster iX range of on-board weighing instruments for wheeled loaders features temperature compensation, which enhances system performance particularly on machines with a wide variation in operating temperature. Angle compensation provides an additional level of precision, beneficial on most sites and not only those with obvious slopes.
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 unit.
Also available is the tradeapprovable 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.
