The R400 indicator now supports three (3) batching firmware applications to create a powerful and flexible batching controller. The three variants of firmware differ primarily in the number of materials they each support. The K410 is single material and ideal for filling, the K411 supports 6 materials and the K412 20 materials. The K411 and K412 are both suitable for multi-head batching machines and more complex control systems using multiple materials.
Each supports 100 recipes and 10 stages of batching. The batching stages can be defined as fill, dump or pulse. Three (3) speeds of filling can be configured depending on the complexity of the batching system.
*Only K411 supports Analogue Module
Sheep CRC declares Rinstrum's Walk Over Weigher a winner
Release date: 08 Nov 12
Recording the performance of the Australia’s sheep flocks is to become quicker and easier following Rinstrum's development of a new mob-based walk over weighing system as a result of an initiative of the Cooperative Research Centre for Sheep Industry Innovation (Sheep CRC).
The Sheep CRC announced Rinstrum's entry the winner of their competition to develop a commercial un-manned sheep weighing system designed to establish the overall weight of a flock of sheep to assist farmers in their pasture management.
Rinstrum's prototype system was the clear stand out among the expressions of interest received by the Sheep CRC, with its simple yet effective design both highly accurate and able to integrate with existing performance recording systems.
Sheep CRC Chief Executive James Rowe said “The Rinstrum design is an outstanding find for the sheep industry, Rinstrum are weighing specialists and they have been able to develop the prototype system using off the shelf parts, removing the need for investment in complex software systems and ensuring rapid commercialisation of the new systems".
Rinstrum is delighted the Sheep CRC has selected our walk-over-weighing prototype, which we believe will deliver sheep producers time and labour savings as it can provide accurate and an easily-accessed data of mob liveweights. The weighing technology used was 4 x LDP 500kg loadcells, R420 with K405 software and a loadcell summing puck. The system also has scope for incorporation of RFID data collection.
Rinstrum is currently working with the Sheep CRC to fine-tune the prototype at the Orange Research Station, NSW. It is anticipated that the new sheep weighing system will be commercially available in early 2013.
More information on Walk Over Weighing is available on the Sheep CRC website www.sheepcrc.org.au

Rinstrum Launches Grate Weigh Axle Scale at AgQuip Field Day in Gunnedah, NSW
Release date: 22 Aug 12
The Grate Weigh Axle Scale is a robust self-contained platform scale for weighing individual axles to determine either by static weighing or in motion the gross vehicle mass. This critical vehicle mass information is a vital link in the chain of responsibility requirements prior to entering public roads or weighbridges.
Grate Weigh** is designed in Australian to meet the latest standards and allow for fast installation. The unique design allows for the unit to be delivered to your site ready for installation. It doesn’t require complex footings, long curing times or long concrete approaches, saving on the hidden costs of installing traditional axle weighing systems or full length weighbridges.
...now that\'s smart weighing
Rinstrum Expands to Sri Lanka
Release date: 11 Jul 12
Rinstrum has formed Rinstrum Pvt Ltd, a wholly owned subsidiary, to expanded our Australian production capacity into Sri Lanka. Our new facility is located in Dankotuwa one hour north of Colombo on the west coast. Both the Australian and Sri Lankan production facilities are equipped with ovens to allow us to do 100% unit calibration and temperature testing on all Rinstrum indicators. Sri Lanka will offer improved logistics for shipments through to Europe, India and USA (port New York).
Rinstrum hubs located in Australia(Brisbane), USA (Detroit) and Germany (Darmstadt) all use a build to order assembly process - units are built up when an order is received. For example R423 stainless steel units are built up with the AC/DC/Battery power option as required and the firmware (Standard K401, Batching K411 etc) is loaded by the regional Rinstrum office.
Our customers will continue to order products through our sales and service hubs in Brisbane, Detroit and Darmstadt as is currently the process.
2100 Series V3 No Longer Valid for Trade Stamping
Release date: 10 Jun 12
The 2100 Series indicators and remote have been modified with the Version 3 release due to end of life on one of the components. The 2100 V3 is not valid for trade stamping and no longer is covered by NSC (S-403) nor OIML (R76) due to the excitation changing from 8V to 8.5V. This applies to the V3 2100, 2101 and 2150 products.
The 2101 is still valid as it is approved under the S1/0/A regulation in which the Excitation regulator is not used.
Specifically the 2150 Luggage Weighing indicator has been replaced with the R300 series (either R323 stainless steel housing or R320 ABS housing) using specialist luggage weighing firmware. The 2150 is no longer available.
The 2100 and 2101 will continue to be available while production quantities remain viable, along with spares. We recommend that the 2100 and 2101 should not be used for new design, please contact your local Rinstrum office to discuss alternatives.
