Side Load Weighing
Lifting Attachment Application: Side mounting load pin
This application targets the attachment which lifts the bins or containers. On a new or existing truck the attachment does not need to be modified to allow the load pin concept (see image).
This application targets the attachment which lifts the bins or containers. On a new or existing truck the attachment does not need to be modified to allow the load pin concept (see image).The load pin construction concept is a simple but cost effective design it incorporates a solution without the need for costly modifications to the lifting structure.
This is how it works:
- The side lift structure contains a engineered steel pin. The steel pin enables the side lift structure to pivot when lifting occurs, this is added with the use of check rods.
- The existing steel pin in the side lift structure is replaced without modifications, with the engineered loadpin the loadpin has intergral strain gauge technology which will measure the resistance created by the deflection on pin when a load is applied.
- The measurement is converted into a weight reading by the incab unit, to insure accuracy a proprietry proximity switch is fitted to insure the weighing is carried out in the same position on each weighing cycle.
Dyneco Weighing Procedure:
1.The bin is lifted in a normal unloading cycle
2.A proximity switch is used to capture the weight. This is set to a desired weighing height it then automatically sends a signal to the onboard monitor.
3.The weight is then locked and held on the monitor.
4.The bin is unloaded into the truck.
5.On the down cycle the bin passes the proximity switch the empty bin is weighed and the tare weight is deducted from the previous gross weight, the net weight value is displayed on the monitor.
6.Pressing Print Total Key, the net weight is printed and memorized for later data downloading or sent by GSM to a host computer. (See spec. on the Computing unit for the other data that can be sent)
The software program includes Dyneco version which includes the "tare calculation feature" this enables the tare of the bin to be deducted from the gross weight, giving a true net weight of the contents of the bin.
