RD2X4_PR_3Cardinal Scale’s Model RD2X4

Cardinal Scale’s USA-made RD2X4 quad remote display provides readouts for multi-platform truck scales visible up to 150 feet away. The RD2X4’s high-intensity LED display offers bright-red 2.25-inch-high digits that are highly visible even in direct sunlight. Ten brightness level settings let you select the exact intensity for the best visibility in your environment.

This remote display is designed for truck weighing systems where the steering axle, drive axle, trailer axle, and total weight are shown to the truck driver. The IP66-rated steel cabinet features a rain hood and is painted industrial tan for long-lasting outdoor use. The cabinet comes with a post mount designed for 4-inch pipe (approx. 4.5-in OD).

The RD2X4 quad remote display has the capability to interface to RS-232 or 20mA current loop. The display’s Auto Learn mode adapts to the data output for your indicator and is compatible with Cardinal Scale’s USA-made 225 Navigator or 825 Spectrum weight indicators with multi-scale option cards. This auto format feature automatically selects input protocol based on the indicator for plug-and-play operation. There are no moving parts inside the display for long life and reliability. The front panel opens vertically for easy internal access.

Load-Cell-Kits-1Cardinal Scale’s USA-made load cell stand kits let you turn almost any vessel or platform into an integrated weighing system. A few basic things need to be considered when choosing the right system. We’ll also discuss the proper installation and setup methods to use.

Whether utilizing beam, tension, or compression cells in either analog or hydraulic configurations, Cardinal load cell kits give you flexible options to help solve many weighing applications.

To determine the total capacity of the system, you first need to know the total weight of the structure that the load cell stands will be supporting (dead load). Add the anticipated maximum system live load to the actual dead load, and that total will be the necessary minimum system capacity. Normally, you want to divide this total by the number of load cells and then go up to the next largest size available load cell.

Load-Cell-Kits-2Example: A tank has an empty weight of 22,000 pounds and an anticipated live load of 100,000 pounds for a total combined load of 122,000 pounds. Using four load cell stands, each cell will be seeing 30,500 pounds of anticipated weight. We would normally use a 50,000 pound load cell in this application. Since many times these systems are under a continual long-term load it is not uncommon for load cells to be almost twice the necessary capacity in order to help reduce signal creep.

Load-Cell-Kits-3Installation of load cell kits begin by determining if the floor (in the case of stand assemblies) or the building structure (for tension systems) is strong enough to bear the anticipated load. If not, piers or footings may be needed or additional support structures added. For all overhead suspension type systems, safety chains must be provided locally to bear any anticipated load due to component failure.

After the system is assembled, it is necessary to make sure that all of the load cells are taking equal dead load to the extent that it is possible. After the millivolt readings are as close as possible, secure the load cell stand assembles. Grouting the stands in place is the preferred method for long-term accuracy.

Most Cardinal Scale load cell stand kits come with checking designed into the stand itself. Depending on the device, some applications may require additional checking. Consult Cardinal Engineering for job specific requirements. Mixers and blenders are examples of devices that may need additional checking. Also, very tall tanks or hoppers may require additional restraints due to wind load on the structure.

Load-Cell-Kits-4Many systems using load cell kits require the connection of electrical supply or control wiring, as well as pipes and supply augers. Discharge chutes or pipes are used to get material out of the tank or hopper. It is very important to understand that anything connected to the scale-born structure must be installed with flexible couplings so that no path is present for force to be shunted off to ground during the weighing process. The more items that are connected to the structure the harder it is to get accurate weights.
