Container Weighing Systems24th Oct 2019
Currently going through our calibration facility are ten RTG container weighing systems for a port in Africa. The systems consist of 20 x 15 tonne load pins, 20 x 13 tonne load pins, connection packs and interface modules that contain four DSC high performance digital signal units (one for each load pin) to covert the mV/V output of the load pin into an RS485 signal. Also included are rugged 8" tablets which display the load on each twistlock and the percentage of the total weight it is carrying, as well as the combined weight on all 4 twistlocks. Each system also has a VGM printer that will provide a ticket showing date/time, container number and total weight.
