Vehicle Scale Family Offers Economical Options

Thurman Scale’s TS600 vehicle scale instrument family is said to be an economical vehicle weighing instrument with numerous features, including outbound and stored tare functions. The midrange TS600 is a general-purpose vehicle scale instrument, viable for those who need to upgrade or replace an existing analog instrument or require a mechanical-to-digital or an analog-to-Intalogix conversion. It is also ideal for those who want a general-purpose instrument to feed serial or Ethernet weight data to a computer.

 

The TS600 Series is available in analog or Intalogix-ready versions and with three enclosure types:  desktop (stainless steel and black powder coated steel, NEMA 12); desk/wall mount (stainless steel, NEMA 4X); and panel mount (stainless steel and black powder coated steel, NEMA 12.)

New VNA technologies enable mmWave broadband testing to 220 GHz, helping researchers and engineers to overcome test challenges and simplify mmWave testing.

Application development in the mmWave frequencies is growing. Broadband testing over hundreds of GHz of bandwidth is subject to repeatability/accuracy deficits, and engineers demand solutions to help overcome challenges and simplify mmWave testing.

 

The instruments feature a 16-segment bright red LED display, which provides easier-to-read text on the screen when compared to traditional seven segment displays. The instruments operate in three mode types: gross–tare–net mode (GTN); inbound/outbound mode (in/out); and basic in/out mode (1 button weighing).

 

TS60X models are analog instruments that take the analog signal from the load cells and convert it to a digital signal. In multiple load cell applications, all sectional adjustments are performed at the analog summing box(es) located at the scale platform. Final scale calibration is performed through the instrument. The TS60X instruments do not offer the on-board diagnostics and digital load cell communication found in instruments featuring Intalogix Technology.

 

TS61X models include Intalogix load cell diagnostics and digital load cell communication technology. An analog load cell signal is converted to a digital signal at the scale-mounted Smart Sectional Controllers (SSCs) and sent to the instrument by means of a digital communication. TS61x instruments use this digital information to process transactions and monitor the load cell status. All sectional adjustments are performed through the TS61x instrument front panel. Final scale calibration is also performed through the instrument. Need to learn more? Check out the TS600 vehicle scale instrument family resource page for datasheets and more.
