Trimble releases LOADRITE L3180
Published by Jonathan Rowland,
Trimble’s LOADRITE L3180 SmartScale uses weighing intelligence to analyse the load, machine, and its environment, using solid state sensors for more accurate, precise, and faster loading. It also connects machines and devices for the collection and syncing of loading data via built-in Wi-Fi and GPS connecting to the InsightHQ™ quarry-reporting portal.
InsightHQ consolidates live, operational information from Trimble LOADRITE devices on loaders, excavators, and conveyors across the site, to provide near real-time productivity and performance reports for extraction, processing, and load-out operations in quarries.
Re-engineered from the ground up, Trimble's innovative, next generation loader scale platform features smarter weighing, smarter data management, and a smarter interface. Intelligence in the weighing software and new hardware gives operators of all skill levels the ability to load faster and more productively than ever before.
The LOADRITE L3180 offers more precise weighing in a wide range of conditions, including adjusting for rough terrain, operator technique and machine movement using new weighing intelligence algorithms. The system also includes digital CAN-bus sensors for noise immunity and ground slope compensation as a standard feature.
The L3180 also now includes in-cab key performance indicators (KPIs), including tonnes per hour, tonnes, and truck count to enable operators to monitor performance and achieve daily targets. When using InsightHQ, personnel can gain access to site production and operator performance KPIs on a desktop or mobile devices. Data is presented in dashboard or graphical formats, including a new loadout performance heat map, powered by built-in GPS. Trimble provides data integrity by caching data locally and then syncing with InsightHQ.
The L3180 features a 5.7 in. touchscreen display, which is twice the size of previous generation scale displays. Colourful graphics, cleaner interface design and the new touchscreen allow for faster menu navigation and interaction. New loading information detail, including customer and product for each job, can be customised on the interface by each operator to match their workflow and make it easier to see the right information for maximum productivity.
