Cut the Cord - Wireless Telemetry in your Industry
See how Mantracourt's New Generation Wireless 2.4GHz Telemetry Systems can provide solutions in a wide range of industries by visiting our new Application Examples web page. Here is just one example of how a Skip Weighing company can benefit from the T24 telemetry system:
Skip hire companies facing new legislative and environmental issues have to look at spreading the costs associated with such change. This has meant a tighter control on the total filled weight of skips. Any excess weight in the skip has to be accounted for and charged accordingly.
Modifications to existing skip vehicles can be a costly and lengthy process. Vehicles can be out of service for several days and have to undergo expensive, labour intensive, welding.
A Wireless Solution
A skip loader truck is fitted with two miniature T24-SA wireless strain gauge acquisition modules contained in shackles which are connected to standard skip chains. A T24-HA wireless handheld display is used to sleep and wake the T24-SA devices and provide a summed display from the two acquisition devices. The handheld offers Gross/Zero toggling of the display so it can be zeroed just before each customer's refuse is added to the skip. In this system a printed paper-ticket is required on the spot for the customer.
A T24-SO serial output module triggered from a key-press on the handheld and connected to a thermal printer, prints a ticket containing company information and the net weight of the refuse along with a log number. The printer and T24-SO are neatly housed in the truck cab. An optional module for the T24-SO would allow the ticket to contain time and date. Using a single 3.6V Lithium battery (Saft LSH20) per T24-SA, a life of three years can be achieved when the system is used for twenty pick-ups per day where each pick-up involves the system being active for ten minutes.
