Portable weighbridge electronics kit

Griffith-Elder at LAMMA '16

1st February 2016

Another good show for Griffith Elder with a steady influx of enquiries covering all manner of specialised weighing equipment from conventional weighbridges to hopper weighing for feed bins, Spreader monitors for manure and lime and livestock weighing for cattle, pigs and sheep.

On display were a new generation double height multi language indicators that are designed for exterior mounting, desk top mounting or cab mounting, with an array of different port options dependant on environmental requirements.

Data transfer methods are now more varied as more secondary equipment and applications are controlled by the weigh indicator. 2016 devises are now constructed with 'Quick Lock' water and dust proof sockets with options in some models for a USB port for data collection or Blue Tooth transmission capability.

Equipment being demonstrated on the stand included the new control option for the popular portable weigh beam systems. The new WB6 controller is built into a waterproof case and has a double height display that has added recording capability by way of a USB socket from which completed weighings can be recorded onto a memory stick as well as saving a record to the main system and printing a ticket. Other features include the Yeild per Field batch setting that can be used to record the tonnage harvested off any particular field. The system also has a large display with built in traffic light and built in fob reader. This is connected using one cable, keeping cabling simple and easy to deploy.

Software developments were also being demonstrated as new promotions on full size weighbridges include a package of farm and industrial software. For the more advanced farming operations storing and conditioning grain, Griffith Elders Ultimate Grain Storage software was attached to a simulator to show its key operating advantages.
